Got your fave colour yet? No worries. The Colour of the Month series lets you feed your need while celebrating a little-known piece of Nike history—the original Colour of the Month series, back in 1984, may have saved the AF-1 from extinction. That’s right, a reissue was uncertain in the shoe’s beginning but sports shops in Baltimore saw them selling like hotcakes and knew the AF-1 would become synonymous with street fashion and culture. So, they asked for custom colourways to sell from their shop windows … and the rest is history. From pristine materials to the high-paced Speed Yellow colourway and even a shoe-cleaning toothbrush, this edition delivers a lesson in coveted off-court style. Every time you rock ’em, make sure you think of the visionary shopkeepers in Baltimore that made it all happen.Nike.com
NIKE’S AIR FORCE 1 ‘COLOR OF THE MONTH’ SERIES, A PART OF THE SILHOUETTE’S 40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION, WAS A BIG SUCCESS AND IT APPEARS THE SWOOSH IS CONTINUING THE TREND IN 2023. THE PILLARS OF THE COTM SERIES ARE HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS AND EYE-CATCHING HUES, AND THIS MONTH’S ‘SPEED YELLOW’ EDITION IS DEFINITELY ROCKING BOTH.
PERFECT FOR THE SUMMER, THIS AF1 COMES DRESSED IN BUTTERY, BI-CHROMATIC SCHEME ON THE SILHOUETTE’S ORIGINAL 1982 TOOLING THAT FEATURES A BRIGHT YELLOW UPPER COMPOSED OF PREMIUM LEATHER THAT’S OFFSET BY AN ICY WHITE MIDSOLE AND JEWEL SWOOSH. COMPLETING THE DESIGN IS THE BOLD ‘NIKE AIR’ TEXT ON THE HEELS AND TONGUES AND A TOOTHBRUSH CHARM THAT COMES WITH THE SHOES AS A FUN BONUS.Politics
