The Nike Air Force 1 Low Sketch White Royal is the latest rendition of the classic silhouette that has been a fan-favourite since 1982 to launch. The reimagined greats honour Nike designer Bruce Kilgore’s original concept sketches for the model through graphics printed onto the uppers, in similar fashion to the other recent “Sketch” releases.
While the AF1 wasn’t the first ever shoe to utilise Nike Air technology (that was the Tailwind Runner in 1978), it was one of the most coveted releases to incorporate the famous cushioning system. The uppers here are crafted from high-quality tumbled white leather for a premium look throughout, and are then printed in signature Royal Blue with the original prototype sketches. The sketches in question depict the Air Unit which was to be concealed inside the shoe (with the same unit later being made visible on the Air Max 1), and the classic Swoosh branding that adorns the side of each sneaker.
Nike branding can be found at the tongue and heel, while the clean white look is continued onto the bulky midsole that provides all the comfort and support we’ve come to expect from an AF1.
