Nike designer Ben Kirschner gives whole new meaning to the phrase ‘military urban appeal’ with this re-design of the iconic basketball silhouette. Style cues transplanted from military footwear somehow work perfectly against the silhouette and deliver a high-fashion aesthetic.
It doesn’t just look tough either; thanks to a canvas lined upper this shoe is both durable and water proof. Extending high through the ankle, it also delivers support without weighing you down.
The unique construct sees two elasticated straps which can be tightened and loosened to your liking. Leather does make an appearance on the lower half of the shoe with all OG Air Force 1 details remaining intact.
It’s this military camo inspired colourway which makes this pair so desirable. Featuring a split contrast of sand coloured leather and nylon with a camo print to the rear, it manages to make this design even more exclusive.
