The Nike Air Force 1 Type Black Gum is the latest in a stream of colourways of the Swoosh’s highly-popular AF1 Type silhouette. The model showcases all the best elements of the classic AF1 that was released back in 1982 and interprets them in a reengineered and modern light.
Seen here in a stealthy-looking blacked-out rendition, the AF1 Type follows a deconstructed aesthetic and is crafted from a blend of supple suede and synthetics. The lateral side is absent of Swoosh branding for a change, with a monochromatic rendition situated on the medial side. The pair are fastened via a Velcro strap that reaches around the heels, while a padded foam tongue allows for extra comfort.
Underfoot, a blacked out rubber midsole unit is accentuated with extra panels, concealing Nike Air technology to ensure these are comfortable steppers. The look is finished with a gum sole, making these a versatile and solid pair.
The Nike Air Force 1 Type Black Gum is set to launch soon at Nike, although we don’t have an official date just yet. Stay locked in right here at The Sole Supplier for all the latest as it unfolds! In the meantime, hit the bell icon above - that way you won’t miss a thing.
