Nike Air Force 1 Premium: Luxurious take on the icon
Nike Air Force 1 is traditionally covered in leather, making it one of the most versatile retro-styled kicks by Nike. For this premium version, the Swoosh brand created a better twist to the conventional AF1 by using superior grade leather while keeping the trademark Nike’s air bubble retained in the sole.
From a sleek, all-black variation, the Nike Air Force 1 Premium receives an untreated leather detailing and a snakeskin-appearing cover. Some of Nike Air Force 1 Premium colorways are Black Pack, Vachetta Tan, and Red Bark.
Nike Air Force 1 Premium and other top-grade AF1s
Below is a quick rundown of the other high-end reinterpretations on the legendary AF1 compared to the luxurious AF1 Premium.
Nike Air Force 1 Gore-Tex - Like the AF1 Premium sneaker, the Nike AF1 GTX comes with a plush leather finish. This design though is a bit pricier than the premium edition due to its waterproof features.
Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit - This Flyknit model is a non-leather iteration of Nike’s iconic sneaker that uses the advanced knitting technique. It weighs significantly lighter than the Nike Air Force 1 Premium, but it’s more expensive.
