The Nike AF1-Type “Light Ivory/Earth Brown” adds to the N. 354 line by putting a new spin on the Air Force 1 Low. The sneaker’s subdued color scheme offers an off-white shade that is the perfect canvas for the design elements that make it distinct. The outside of the leather upper looks especially clean with subtle accents including the N. 354 embellishment, a maroon seam on its quarter panel, and the Nike logo. The inner half of the upper is where the AF1-Type earns its place in Nike’s conceptual N. 354 line. A semi-translucent TPE quarter panel is accented by a cream-colored Nike swoosh, a maroon stripe, a sky blue accent, and a strap that wraps around the heel. The juxtaposition of the lateral and medial quarter panels gives the sneakers an abstract design unlike a typical pair of Air Force 1s.
The avant-garde style of the Nike AF1-Type “Light Ivory/Earth Brown” is just the beginning of what sets these sneakers apart. Their style is certainly pronounced but so is their substance. The inclusion of a pockmarked foam tongue, stamped insoles, and ribbed rubber toe cap makes this pair of sneakers as comfortable as they are eye-catching. The shoes are currently available in China, and we expect them to be available in the US soon.
