Sneakers and sports culture will always go hand-in-hand, mainly because most of our favorite sports stars are the main purveyors that push kick culture forward. As the AF1 is a classic silhouette that transcends all fields, Nike is now decking out the shoe in a new style that covers all the bases.
For baseball fans, the Air Force 1 iteration seen here utilizes stitching on the side panel and laces designed to look like the red seams on a baseball. Hoops fans are represented with a more apparent feature, as the toe box is completely covered in the textured rubber exterior of a basketball. The final sports inspo is tennis, as the neon exterior of the felt bouncy ball pops up on the Swoosh, tongue tab and suede heel counter. Football is slightly represented on the insole depending on how you look at it, as the green hue could be considered an ode to gridiron. Whether you play one, two, all or none of the sports above, you can still appreciate these for the steez alone.
This sports-inspired Nike Air Force 1 Low colorway seen here is exclusive to kids sizes, so lace the smaller ones in your life right now by copping a pair for $65 USD at Nike.com.
