The Air Force 1 Low ‘Colour of the Month’ series allows you to indulge in your favourite hues while celebrating a fascinating piece of Nike history.

Thanks to visionary shopkeepers in Baltimore, custom colourways were introduced, igniting the shoe’s journey to becoming a symbol of street fashion and culture. This edition features pristine materials and a crisp white and Hyper Royal colourway. Alongside the sneakers, you’ll find an exclusive shoe-cleaning brush which is a neat touch.
