Nike’s Flyknit Air Force 1s have been scarce in recent years, disappearing from the brand’s lineup in the years following the original’s 2016 debut. Now, Nike is gearing up to unveil the updated version, now equipped with recycled materials and a Crater midsole.

Nike’s Air Force 1 has been a mainstay in the brand’s lineup over the past several years, beloved for its classic look and constantly changing colorways. This week, the Swoosh showed off a new colorway of its Air Force 1 Flyknit 2.0, a silhouette that has stayed out of the spotlight since its introduction back in the early months of 2019. The second version of the legendary Nike sneaker outfits the AF1 with a new knit pattern for the upper made largely from recycled yarns and other scrap. The midsole gets a makeover too, replacing the standard EVA rubber with Nike’s Crater rubber, comprised of ground up soles and scrap. The result is a much more environmentally-friendly Air Force 1, as well as an interesting new spin on the classic. This week, the Air Force 1 Flyknit 2.0 has emerged in a new “Wolf Grey” color scheme, which mixes plain grey yarn for the upper’s toe box and quarter panels with multicolor threads for the mudguard and heel sections.


Nike’s latest iteration of the Air Force 1 Flyknit 2.0, now constructed from recycled materials for the brand’s “Crater” collection, has yet been announced for release next month on May 6th, 2021. The knit “Wolf Grey” Air Force will be available from both Nike and select retailers with a price tag of $110.
