Good to know

The Nike Air Force 1 07 Patent is a women’s hoop-inspired shoe made available in sizes 5 to 12, half sizes included, in B Medium width. Its low-top construction permits flexible foot movement with sufficient overall support, while in-shoe comfort is made possible because the collar, tongue, and insoles are all well-padded. Also featured in this shoe is a traditional lace-up closure that offers an adjustable yet secure fit.

The classic Air Force 1 received an update that suits the modern market’s demands through the Nike Air Force 1 07 Patent. Although this Swoosh is a women-exclusive release, expect a sporty-looking façade that pays homage to its basketball roots.

Its low-top profile with a traditional lace-up closure comes in easy-to-style, almost monochromatic colors. White leather dominates the upper with a pop of color (varies depending on the colorway) on the side Swoosh and heel tab.

The Nike Air Force 1 07 Patent looks just like its predecessor, the Air Force 1 07, especially at first glance. However, a subtle difference can be observed when you look closely. The Swoosh logo on the sides is made of a patent leather material that gives a bit of shine to the shoe's athletic look. The rubber toe bumper also gives out a nice design detail with several stud-like tiny stars texture.

The Nike Air Force 1 is undeniably one of Nike’s most successful shoes ever created. It was designed by the iconic Nike designer Bruce Kilgore and released officially in 1982 as the first basketball shoe to utilize the Nike Air technology. The presidential aircraft Air Force 1 inspired its name.

Its stylish look combined with a promising then-new innovation made the Air Force 1 an instant hit. Despite the success, Nike had to stop its production two years after its debut because it focused on producing a new line of shoes. But the Air Force 1’s disappearance in the market only increased market’s demand, which in turn gave Nike no choice but to re-release it. It was Nike’s first-ever retro release. Since then, the Nike Air Force 1 or otherwise referred to as AF1 received countless versions with varying colorways and material upgrades throughout the years.

The well-received Swoosh shoe celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2007 with the release of the Nike Air Force 1 07 model along with the Air Force XXV and two high-end iterations of the original AF1. Today, the Air Force 1 07 has successfully made a name for itself and has undergone countless variations and collaborations.

One of the many versions is the low-top Nike Air Force 1 07 Patent, a women-exclusive model that follows the aesthetics and features of the original 2007 version of the AF1 but equipped with a subtle material upgrade – the patent leather Swoosh brandings on the side panels. Some of its colorways include “White/White/Oracle Pink” and “White/White/Total Orange,” with each pair originally retailing at $90.
