This year we're celebrating the 40th birthday of our favorite sneaker icon – the Air Force 1 . But, we haven't heard too much about the celebration and the special anniversary drops. But we recently told you about the Nike Air Force 1 Barb Wire Swoosh . Today we continue with the Air Force 1 Championship Belt. All information about the shoe can be found here in the article.
Did you know that the Air Force 1 came out 40 years ago, but only really became an icon after its re-release in the 90s, when the white-on-white model came out? Now you know. Various collaborations have already been leaked and discussed for the 40th birthday, for example with Drake and Stüssy. So far, however, official information is still missing and we'll start with the confirmed colourways from Nike .
The Championship Belt colourway got his name because the Air Force 1 comes with a bold gold and black lace tag designed to look like a championship belt. Is that an allusion to the 40th birthday? The Air Force 1 is sure to win almost every sneaker duel. The upper comes in plain white smooth and “cracked” leather. The Swoosh and the heel are made of black patent leather. The midsole is white and the outsole is black. The Nike brandings are gold. All in all a nice, but also chubby colourway.
Unfortunately, we don't know when exactly the Air Force 1 Championship Belt will be released. So far, the pictures have “only” come from @ apolloluo1976 .
