Nike is gearing up to revive the elusive mid-height cut of the Air Force 1 this year, unleashing a slew of exciting colorways all year long. This week, we have an early look at a new orange and olive-clad version, coming soon.

Nike’s Air Force 1 is as essential to the brand’s history as Michael Jordan, Tinker Hatfield, and Air technology. Originally released in 1982 for the basketball court, and produced in high, mid, and low-top iterations, the Air Force has remained one of the most popular shoes on earth nearly 40 years after its debut. So, as Nike prepares to celebrate the shoe’s upcoming fortieth anniversary in 2022, it should come as no surprise that they are prepping the AF1 Mid for a grand return. Having already surfaced in a number of new premium colorways so far, today we have an early look at a new color scheme we are going to call the Ninja Turtle. The look begins with a white leather base, before adding the lush olive leather overlays too the mud guard and heel sections. The Swoosh logo appears in safety orange several times around the shoe; on the jewel Swoosh on either side, as well as two additional embroidered logos, one on the collar strap and another at the base of the lacing system. Finally, brown Nike Air branding appears on heels and tongues, while the phrase “inside out or outside in, as long as you’re right within” decorates the backside of each tongue tab.


Nike’s upcoming colorways of the Air Force 1 Mid have not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to launch sometime in the Spring of 2022. The premium olive and orange-accented AF1 Mid seen here will likely be available alongside the rest, carrying a price tag of $140 for the luxurious materials. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
