Nike Draws Inspiration From Workboot For This New Air Force 1 “Team Red”

Nearly three weeks remain until Summer comes to an end and Fall arrives, which means that many new Fall Nike releases 2015 will be hitting the shelves once the new season begins. Matching up their signature sneaker models with the seasons by whipping up new iterations has become somewhat of a tradition for Nike Sportswear and they often tend to experiment with the Air Force 1. Nike is once again utilizing the Air Force 1 to mark the return of the workboot aesthetic with this “Team Red” colorway.

Nike-Air-Force-1-Workboot-TEAM-RED-1-622x350Back in 2014, just about every Nike sneaker model had received the “Wheat” treatment and apparently the same is going to happen this year as well. This Fall, it seems that Nike will be dropping a “Work Boot” pack. A Nike Air Force 1, Air Max 1 and Air Max 90 are included in the pack, all three of which feature a premium leather construction that has been dressed up in a “Flax” rendition. However, the workboot-inspired Nike Air Force 1 version seen here is not the one belonging to this “Work Boot” pack.

This upcoming Nike Air Force 1 “Team Red”iteration sports a premium look along with a red and white colorscheme. The sneaker is made up of contrasting materials, both of which are dressed up in two different shades of red. The side panels and toebox consist of tumbled leather while the ankle, eyestay, heel, midfoot and toecap are covered in quilted nubuck. Contrasting with the dark red upper, this sneaker is also equipped with a Light Bone-colored heel, midsole and Nike Swoosh. The fact this pair is inspired by the workboot becomes apparent because of the gum outsole, grommet style metallic eyelets and stripped laces like those of hiking boots.

Nike-Air-Force-1-Workboot-TEAM-RED-3Although no release date has been announced or confirmed yet, this much is certain that this workboot-inspired Nike Air Force 1 “Team Red” will be one of the Fall Nike releases 2015. Loyal fans of the Air Force 1 will surely want to get this retro and vintage styled pair.
