In recent years, 3M material has gained popularity in sneaker designs. We see it in select Yeezys, Jordans, and more. Despite this, there have been very few collaborations between sneaker brands and 3M itself. However, the shortlist sees another addition as Nike and 3M have officially unveiled their newest project.
The Nike Air Force 1 is arguably the most iconic sneaker ever made, and this upcoming iteration simply adds to the long list of designs and perspectives the Air Force 1 has experienced since its initial release in 1982. While this collaboration is not as loud as past releases, it merges the best of both worlds: The crispness of the Air Force 1, and reflective 3M material with 3M branding.
There are two notable design features in this upcoming Air Force 1 release, first being the bright silver 3M Swoosh found on both the outer and inner panel. 3M makes their mark on this region of the sneaker by a repeated pattern of its recognizable logo. Complimenting the crisp, all-white colorway is the bold red Nike Air branded tags.
Available on select online platforms such as Asphalt Gold’s Website in limited quantities, The 3M X Nike Air Force 1 has a retail price of $115 (~Php 5.6k). Are you planning on copping this sneaker?
