Since its Q4 2016 debut, Nike’s Special Field Air Force 1 (also known as the SF AF-1) has been one of the Sportswear division’s most buzzed-about projects.
The SF AF-1 has consistently sold out in every style Nike has produced thus far, making the sneakers a challenge to purchase for the average consumer. The good news is that there are more looks on the way, and they’ll be hitting shelves very soon.
To jump-start its NBA All-Star Weekend celebration, Nike will launch the SF AF-1 in “Desert Camo” and “Dust” (aka “Cement”) colorways tomorrow. Both colorways are deemed Quickstrike releases, meaning availability will be similar to previous SF AF-1 launches, but the “Desert Camo” iteration will reportedly be especially hard to come by.
The “Desert Camo” colorway features a tan leather construction and a camouflage pattern on its nylon heel, while the “Dust” makeup opts for a dark gray shade and uses a premium cracked leather throughout its upper.
The SF AF-1 is the brainchild of Nike Sportswear Footwear Designer Ben Kirschner. The hybrid design plays upon the classic 1982 Air Force 1 basketball sneaker and repurposes it as a rugged boot complete with military-inspired details such as paracord straps.
Priced at $180 each, the cracked leather “Dust” SF AF-1 will be available from nike.com and select retailers including Foot Locker, Footaction and Champs Sports, while the “Desert Camo” colorway can be found on nike.com and at Nike Tier Zero boutiques.
