When you think of timeless New York style staples, a few things come to mind immediately: Yankee hats, Air Force 1s, and olive green/brown hiking boots, referred to affectionately from the Bronx to Brooklyn as “Beef And Brocs.” And now you don’t even have to pick between a fresh pair of Forces or brawny “Beef And Broc” boots — you can have them both at the same time, as Nike is dropping an Air Force 1 adorned with special colors and materials that combines the two street-ready kicks together. The “Beef and Broc” AF1s recreate the beloved aesthetic in a new way, featuring a rugged olive canvas towards the heel and on the quarter panel, while a premium yet hardy brown nubuck appears on the toebox, throat, and eyestays. Further boot-style detailing arrives via two-tone oval laces and a brass top eyelet. Small premium touches are provided via a leather heel tab and debossed nubuck tongue patch, and the shoe’s winter-ready look is completed by a dark grey midsole and black outsole. If you need some beef and broccoli in your winter sneaker rotation, these special Forces will release October 18th at the retailers listed below for $130 USD.
