With many of their paisley-adorned releases, Nike has been mindful of how they use the pattern — carefully selecting the colors and redesigning it almost entirely.
Riddled with Swooshes and ever-so-slightly warped, this non-traditional take on the bandana print is dressing an extensive amount of silhouettes, including the Air Force 1.
Likely a part of the classic’s 40th Anniversary, the colorway starts as most AF1s do: in “Triple White.”
The neutral is applied throughout the entire upper and bottom, outfitting the laces, lining, and tumbled leather paneling. Black branding with White paisley prints on the Swooshes and heels completes the design.
