Nike is known to push creative boundaries over the years, with new customizable sneakers now seeming to be normal coming from the well-renowned sneaker company. But let's agree that they reached an inventively creative peak when they released the Air Force 1/1, a lifestyle sneaker with multi-color approaches and animal prints. You could then creatively pick apart the pieces of separate velcro panels to customize it to what seems the best look to you over on the upper.
Now the ingenious sneaker model is coming back in a different iteration that could be its most creative stride as it delves into the world of science fiction. The forthcoming Air Force 1/1 model "Nike and The Mighty Swooshers" transforms the sneaker into something straight out of a comic book or a manga. The playfulness of a comic strip is captured in spades making sure to excite anime fans along with sneakerheads.
Nike Air Force 1/1 “Mighty Swooshers”
Style Code: DM5441-001
Release Date: 2021
Retail Price: TBA
The new design for the model was first teased back in May is now unveiled as part of an official release through the image releases of the kicks by Nike. The fresh style is kicked off similarly to the previous iteration of the sneaker with black velcro patches over on the base. The imagery then offsets the rest with colorful extraterrestrial figures on the toe boxes of the shoe, with Nike branding all covered in the vintage comic book style. We then see what seems to be a female character out of anime dressed in a spacesuit over on the medial and lateral area. We also appear to spot characters that look to be reminiscent of the Roswell Rayguns martian.
Other new additions to the upcoming sneaker include customization of the signature Nike Swoosh. It also boasts other separate patches to replace the kicks that are a nod to the "Gundam" and "The Thing" from Fantastic Four.
It's not clear when the Nike Air Force 1/1 will drop, but we can expect it to be released after a few months, more or less.
