Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit

By in Fashion on

Nike Air Force Ones are about as classic as it get with shoes. If you’re not familiar, just ask Nelly for his opinion on them. However, one potential flaw could be that they are somewhat heavy, making them more difficult to wear casually or for basketball in the modern day. Leave it up to Nike to deal with any issues with their products – they’ve done exactly that by combining the classic Air Force One style with their Flyknit technology. The result is the lightest Air Force One ever.

The ingenious designers knew that they needed a solution that preserved the style and essence of the original Air Force 1 while also bringing it into the modern day. Nike Footwear Design Director Jonathan Johnsongriffin cleverly bonded a dark grey Flyknit upper to a 3D-printed prototype of an Air Force 1 sole, then used a black marker to colour in the Swoosh and eye soles. The end result is the beauty you see here.
