Nike Sportswear had an undeniable hit on its hands with last winter’s lineup of GORE-TEX equipped Air Force 1s, and now the rugged, weatherized styles are set to return for winter 2020-21. After we saw a boot-like high top with a lugged sole earlier in the month, we’ve now been given a first look at a new GORE-TEX Air Force 1 Low — and although its build may be winterized, its color palette is far more indicative of summer.
A light sail tone is chosen to cover the entirety of the upper, which is built from a blend of tightly-woven textiles and tumbled leather. This material mixture proffers a look that’s equal parts rugged and elegant with just a touch of Travis Scott Air Force 1 flair, and the entire assemblage is lined with GORE-TEX’s climate-resistant technology. Besides the signature Swooshes and Nike heel hits, there’s also a co-branded tongue tag and a special embroidered GORE-TEX graphic on the lateral heel. Down below, the look is finalized by a sail midsole and classic gum outsole
The Nike Air Force 1 Low GORE-TEX is set to hit the Nike webstore later this fall, though an official release date has yet to be confirmed. If past models are any indication, the MSRP will be set at $150 USD.
