Over its near-20-year-history, Los Angeles retailers UNDEFEATED has established itself as one of the premier (and longest-running) Nike collaborators. From its latest run of Kobe creations to its early days on the Air Force 1 and Dunk, the brand has demonstrated an incredible knowledge of product, material, and most importantly, storytelling, in its offerings. With such a rich history for inspiration at their fingertips, UNDEFEATED’s upcoming Dunk vs AF1 pack would not be short of ideas. Their latest installment, this Air Force 1, undoubtedly looks to their early days of vibrant color and exotic materials — though, unlike the other Uptowns to surface, it doesn’t appear to pull inspiration directly from a specified release; an old sample, perhaps.
Here, UNDEFEATED have fitted out the Nike Air Force 1 Low in a rich golden yellow canvas at its base, before delivering a bunch of equally bold overlays and accents for maximum contrast. Rich blue snakeskin overlays add some serious flair while piercing white lateral leather Checks and heel overlays ensure that you can spot the Swoosh from a significant distance. When we flip the pair to its medial angle, you’ll see inverted material and color mid panels and Swooshes. UNDEFEATED’s five-stroke logo on the lateral side and tongue pop in vibrant white again for maximum visibility, more so when compared to the pair’s heavily-aged outsole unit beneath.
