Nike just dropped another colorway of its Air Force 1 Low Premium silhouette, this time continuing its fall-ready release calendar with “Oil Green.”
The upper of the latest iteration of the Air model is made up of a combination of materials, including suede overlays, twill on the base, and leather Swoosh logos and heel overlays.
Meanwhile, the entire upper is covered in an Oil Green hue, which is a dark and muted shade of green. The tonal branding on the tongue labels, insoles, and embroidered heel tabs adds to the sleek and minimal esthetic of the shoe. The sneakers also come with waxed laces that match the upper color.
The midsole and outsole of the shoe are also done in Oil Green, creating a monochromatic look that is both simple and sophisticated. The rubber outsole provides traction and durability, while the Air unit in the heel offers cushioning and comfort. Rounding out the design is a set of waxed shoelaces which sit atop the solid green rubber soles.
