The Nike AF-1 Shadow banners in a new wave of AF-1s this season
As we inch closer and closer to the holiday season, expect to see a couple new kinks with Nike Sportswear and the iconic Air Force 1. While we have seen several iterations pop up over the last few years, Nike’s looking at the AF-1 from a female perspective. Building from the 1st Reimagined and extending belief in continually shifting the paradigm of what it means to celebrate Nike classics.
“We know women are infinitely diverse. They want something unique, and they want to use sneakers as an expression of themselves and their wardrobes. They also have deep respect and love for the icon,” says Georgina James, Senior Creative Director, Nike Women’s Footwear. “Air Force 1 Shadow is a great example of how we channel desire and create new expressions through silhouette, shape and details, something unique but still familiar each season.”
Characterized by the double design details and layered pieces, the AF1 Shadow’s inspiration comes from thinking about women who are setting examples in their communities as forces of change. To put it simply, it’s putting these elements of excellence front and center.
While the original AF1 gives that right amount of thickness, the AF1 Shadow comes with slightly higher midsole for a more modern look, and made the shoe lighter with its cored-out outsole.
The Air Force 1 Shadow is set to drop October 3rd globally and will soon be available at select Nike stores and partner retailers for Php 5,795. Keep it locked here for the official PH release. There are also a couple more AF1 releases slated for the rest of the season. Stay tuned.
