For the most part, TikTok’s contribution to the sneakerverse has been cringeworthy. It has, however, provided us with some gems on occasion. For the sneaker brands, the manner in which the Air Jordan 1 “Obsidian” took over the platform aided in the eventual hype for the release. The same went for the tear-away Air Force 1s from early last year. The can’t-look-away customizing videos blew up, putting the two or three options that released last year in the unattainable category. With the market screaming for the sneaker, Nike would naturally continue into 2021 with more tear-away takes — and today we get our first glimpse at the year’s sophomore release, the Tear-Away Air Force 1 “Arctic Punch”
Boasting underlays far more muted when compared to its colorful predecessors, this next-up women’s exclusive bears less in-your-face hues of (from what we can see) yellow, lime, and muted brown beneath. There are also listed colors of the titular Arctic Punch and Purple Pulse although these cannot be sighted from the official imagery below. Interestingly, the under layers of the pair arrive in a patent leather finish, save the Sesame Swooshes of tumbled leather. Completing the design are the customary Riddler-like graphic insoles and an unadulterated Air Force 1 sole unit in all-white.
