Knit upper and recycled sole units aren’t new to Bruce Kilgore’s 40-year-old design, but their presentation and combination on the two newly-surfaced pairs are. Flyknit construction across the uppers introduce new patterns to the low-top Air Force 1, with the greyscale offering boasting chainlink and camouflage-reminiscent patterns. Profile swooshes also opt for an updated look, while heels feature elastic pull tabs that surely deliver improve functionality, especially given the Flynit construction’s sock-like fit. Underfoot, sole units seemingly take a page out of the Nike Space Hippie line that debuted in June 2020, pairing Crater Foam and Nike Grind components together to give Kilgore’s iconic made-for-basketball tooling a modern-day spin.
