Nike’s Air Force silhouette is celebrating its fortieth anniversary this year, and the Swoosh is bringing back some of our favorite iterations for the occasion. This week, we caught our first look at the Jelly Air Force 1 Jelly dropping in ‘Pale Vanilla’ soon.

Nike has released dozens, if not hundreds of different iterations of the Air Force 1 since the shoes launch in 1982, switching out materials, branding, and trying out new panelling. Some of these changes stick, and some don’t, though we are likely to see a number of them pop up for the shoe’s fortieth anniversary this year. One of those returning if the Air Force 1 Low Jelly, a fan-favorite model that swaps out the usual pattern-cut Swoosh for a semi-translucent ‘gel’ alternative. This week, a new colorway has joined Nike’s upcoming releases, casting the AF1 Jelly in a soft ‘Vanilla’ color scheme. The new look begins with a crisp white leather upper, with a yellowed midsole. The Jelly Swoosh comes in a similar aged yellow tone, while off-white hues dress the inner lining and heel counters.


Nike’s upcoming retro release of the Jelly Swoosh Air Force 1 has not yet been announced for release, though we are expecting them to launch sometime in the coming weeks. The “Vanilla” color scheme of the AF1 will likely release from both Nike and select retailers, with a price tag of $110. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.

UPDATE 5/21/22: Nike has slated their initial colorways of the Air Force 1 Jewel to drop next month, on June 3rd, 2022. The vanilla colorway here will release alongside the “Light Bone” look from Nike and select retailers for $130.
