Even when it was first released, the Nike Air Force 1 Luxe had the appearance and feel of a boot. The latter is even explicitly stated in the official copy as having had a significant influence on the design; despite this, the brand preferred to keep the inspiration relatively subtle. That all changes with the model’s most recent colorway, which incorporates elements that are unmistakably inspired by rugged footwear.
To begin, the upper is crafted from a robust, deep brown leather that is noticeably higher in quality than the silhouette’s standard GRs. Each panel is also meticulously cut, with a rippling along the edges of the tumbled eye stays and heel tab. Forward, the perforations on the toe have been completely redesigned to mimic the ornate style of brogue shoes. The shoe is then fastened with thin, dark brown laces that match only the bottom of the enlarged, retreated tooling.
Check out the official images below for a closer look at this upcoming Air Force 1 Luxe. Sizes are expected to become available on Nike.com and at select retailers in the coming months, hopefully before the hot weather arrives.
Additionally, Nike will release the ACRONYM Nike Blazer Low on February 10th.
