Nike Sky Force 3/4: An alternative to an iconic silhouette

The 1983 Nike Sky Force 3/4 basketball shoe was pushed back on the modern center stage to offer a fresh summer iteration to Nike's retro sneaker fans.

Considered as the streamlined version of the Nike Air Force 1 Low, this classic and straightforward 80s b-ball staple features a clean leather upper. Nike uses vivid Swoosh accents to create an unrivaled style, such as the striking fog blue hue or patterns like red and blue snakeskin and camouflage. The overall look of this sneaker is complemented with Nike branding on the heel and tongue tag for a classic touch.

Its three quarter-top profile with padded collar creates a retro-style fitting for the streetwear fashion.  The perforation details on the toe box add ventilation while enhancing the vintage vibe. These details are seated on top of a semi-translucent rubber sole with a herringbone pattern for traction and style.
