Premium materials, clean color blocking, and a history lesson all combine on this new colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 Mid. Taking a look at this special 40th anniversary colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 Mid, this iconic model starts off with a white canvas construction on the toes, side panels, and ankles which is joined by tan leather overlays, and black textured leather Swooshes on the side panels. The defining details on this Air Force 1 include an embroidered Star/Swoosh logo on the ankle of the left shoe (possibly a nod to Vietnam where the shoes are manufactured), a beaver illustration that appears on the right ankle and insoles (a possible nod to Beaverton, OR, the home of Nike), and a removable timeline receipt on the tongues that shows the design history of the model. Cork detailing on the heels, a Sail midsole, and a tan rubber outsole finish off this Nike Air Force 1 Mid that will be releasing in the coming weeks. Is this a cop or pass?

UPDATE (8/18): New information has emerged regarding this new colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 Mid. It turns out this Air Force 1 is known as the “Izakaya” colorway and is Inspired by Japan’s unique “Izakaya Culture,” which is a place where adults go to relax while enjoying alcohol and food. The highlight of this Air Force 1 is the receipt on the tongue that nods to the bill received after a long night at the bar, but for sneaker purposes this “receipt” comes with a timeline that celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Air Force 1. The Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Izakaya” is scheduled to release on August 25th at select Japanese retailers such as atmos.
