A Closer Look at the Air Force 1 Shadow

A fresh take on an old-school icon, the Air Force 1 Shadow takes the OG design lines and switches ‘em up; undeniable Force with a twist! Created by women for women, these sneakers take inspo from game-changing gals. Women who create change and set examples – hello girl PWR ?.

Bringing something new but familiar, Nike’s Senior Creative Director for Women’s Footwear, Georgina James wanted to create a sneaker that women can use to express themselves and their unique style. The double design and layered details on the trainer celebrate the AF1’s DNA. Expect two eyestays, two mudguards, two back tabs and you guessed it…two Swooshes!

They’re built with the same design lines as Bruce Kilgore’s OG, but feature an exaggerated midsole, which sits slightly higher to take the style game up a level. They’re also ultra-light with a grooved outsole for maximum comf’.
