Make Your Own Custom Nike Air Force 1 on Nike By You

The white-on-white Nike Air Force 1 will go down as maybe the most important shoe in the history of footwear. For some, they’re part of a uniform that makes up an identity. And for others, they’re just boring sneakers with a total lack of colour. What we can all agree on, however, is that Air Force 1 mids suck and creating your own pair of custom sneakers with colourways designed how YOU want is awesome.

With Nike’s By You customer sneaker creator, sneakerheads can live in a world where you’re not defined by your choice in Air Force 1 (except for those who wear dirty AF1s, AF1 Mids, AF1 Highs, and those ‘Shadow’ Air Force 1s with the big tab on the heel) because it’s just that. By You and for You. Don’t like the colourways that you see in front of you in the store? Make your own. Nike’s custom Air Force 1 creator lets you create a pair of sneakers that define the most important things to you. Or maybe you just want to make a cool ass pair of 1s… we won’t hold it against you.

What is Nike By You?

The popularity of white-on-white Nike Air Force 1s (and the lack of supply) has brought the classic sneaker back into the limelight for the masses. Dirty Air Force 1s are being spotted in suburbia and the shoe is showing no sign of slowing down in popularity. While access to the plain colourway has been tough, the introduction of spin-off silhouettes – including the Air Force 1 ‘Shadow’ – has helped stem some of the desire for buyers. The Nike Air Force 1 is also a shoe that generates the brand a LOT of money. How much you ask? Try more than $800 Million in sales per year as we revealed in an article right here.

What is Nike By You? Sneakerheads of yesteryear will remember the NikeID days when you could take some of Nike’s most popular lifestyle and athletic sneakers and customise them to match your personality, team, or style. Nike By You will appear very familiar, with the option to customise the famous lifestyle model into the shoe you want it to be. Simply choose between an Air Force 1 low, mid, or high and go to town on choosing whatever colours you want. Different materials are routinely available and include different types of leather, suede, and canvas. Colours are also rotated regularly so make sure you check out the builder often.

Our trick to getting a quality custom Nike Air Force 1 is keeping the overall colour theme simple. Ronnie Fieg once said that he orders hundreds of Nike By You Air Force 1s with a white upper, contrasting coloured swoosh, and sail midsole and outsole. Our creation above shows that this colour scheme is hard to beat and you can create your own via the link below.

The unlocked pair of Air Force 1 Lows currently includes the option for premium ‘tumbled leather’ over the ‘smooth leather’ as found on the basic By You pair above. This gives you the option to make a white-on-white Air Force 1 through the creator if you’re unable to secure a pair for yourself in-store or online. The pair we made above was inspired by the Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low.

Nike Custom Air Force 1 Mid By You

We prefer the Air Force 1 mid over the high, however, only when the colourway is kept simple. Here we’ve dressed up the upper and midsole in a ‘sail’ colour and combined it with the classic gum outsole for the full Travis Scott Air Force 1 vibe. It’s simple yet effective and the only decision you have to make is on the strap.

Nike Custom Air Force 1 High By You

While the Nike Air Force 1 high is far from our favourite sneaker, the option of adding a sail midsole makes a world of difference to a shoe that is otherwise a little too high cut for our liking. We’ve combined an all-white upper with a contrasting black swoosh and strap. Unfortunately, very few colours are available on the outsole with this model.

It’s no surprise that the most customisable Air Force 1 on Nike By You is also the most expensive. The Air Force 1 High Unlocked allows you to pick from a very wide range of colours and materials, and for us, that means choosing a bright red outsole, Air logo, and tongue. Combine that with a premium all-over suede upper and leather swoosh for proper style points.

Price: $250
Delivery time: Custom-made and delivered in 4 weeks or less.
