Designed as an outdoors-ready version of the classic sneaker, the shoe seems to draw inspiration from the Nike ACG division with its various utilitarian notes. Here, a dark brown clothes a number of these references, such as the Air Humara-inspired midsole.
Again, the AF1 Wild balances a ballistic nylon at the base with suede detailing at the various overlays, including the Swooshes. Throughout the upper, black dominates as the primary color with hits of dark brown sliding in at the lateral midfoot embroidery, tongue and heel branding, eyestays and reinforced heel. From there, a black pull tab attached to the tongue emphasizes its utility-focused approach while the checkered midsole combines black and brown with embossed “AIR” detailing. Rounding out the sneaker, the durable outsole sees its black finish accented by an encased rust pink.
