Facts

Trudge through icy or snowy streets with your all-time favorite Nike Air Force 1 Lows. Updated specifically to withstand the numbing temperature brought about by the winter season, the Swoosh brand made sure that the gents can purchase the Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium Winter in a generous size range of 6 to 16. The low top also follows the standard D width for men. Women can get their equivalent size in by subtracting 1.5 from their usual sizing.

The Air Force 1 from Nike is the most revamped silhouette in Nike catalog. This entitles the sneaker to numerous colorway renditions including that for the winter season. Apparel for these bone-chilling months is usually comprised of denim or thick pants with coats and jackets accordingly. The Nike Air Force 1 Premium Winter men’s shoe also goes well with skinny jeans if one is up for it.

The most noticeable element with the Nike Air Force 1 Premium Winter is the Sherpa lining that pokes out of the collar. Other Nike iterations also employ such detail, but it was relatively the first time for the low top AF 1’s to have a piece of the tech. The two favorite colorways of the Nike Air Force 1 Premium Winter are black and burgundy.

It would be a bit polarizing, to say the least, if people from Sherpa would be pleased or not with these wool-driven Air Force 1’s that Nike offers for the winter. Though the sneaker market was somewhat fed up with these unsolicited releases, the use of Sherpa or faux-sheepskin in the Nike Air Force 1 was somehow deemed promising.

Sherpa, in a demographic sense, was the name of a tribe of people living in the mountainous portions of Nepal. Being positioned in these towering heights implies that temperatures would, at times, drop below zero thus a quintessential need for insulated clothing. As time progressed, people from all around the world recognized the brilliant type of heat-keeping clothing which was later reproduced synthetically. Thank you polyester, acrylic, cotton, and whatnot.

For its latest edition, the Nike Air Force 1 Premium Winter fuses the Nepalese tech with their own vintage basketball silhouette with encapsulated Air on the heel. Teeth-like protrusions on the outsole provide more grip while the uppers are composed of full-grain leather for an ingenious cold-climate finish. Lastly, a Sherpa lining completes the winter look.

  • Its upper is composed of a Nubuck type of leather.
  • Perforations on the toe box enhance breathability.
  • The encapsulated Air-sole unit on the heel provides the sneaker’s lightweight cushioning.
  • The sneaker initially retails at $130 and was introduced in 2018.
