Nike is all in on the Air Force 1 this year, delivering dozens of new colorways and iterations so far in 2021. This week, we have an early look at an interesting new style, removing the strap from the AF1’s high-top version.

The Nike Air Force 1 has been a main weapon in the brand’s arsenal since it was first introduced to the lineup in 1982, and has remained there thanks to its versatility originally on the basketball court, before quickly emerging as a premier lifestyle sneaker. Now, the Air Force 1 is the stuff of footwear legends, revered sneakerheads the world over. This week, a new version of the typical Air Force 1 high emerged, showing off a sleek new color scheme to honor the AF1’s original ’80s release. The most noticeable part of this release is the complete absence of the Air Force’s usual ankle strap, opting instead for a clean leather build made from premium materials. The color scheme features an all-white build for the upper with bold red Swooshes and outsoles, while an aged vintage midsole completes the look.


Nike’s upcoming release of the throwback Air Force 1 High has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to land on shelves sometime in the coming weeks. The new version, featuring premium leathers and no strap, will be available 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.
