Nike Air Force 1 Shadow
Color: Spruce Aura/White-Pistachio Frost
Style Code: CW2655-001
For those who prefer something a bit different from the norm, pairs such as the Air Force 1 Shadow are an easy buy, presenting the same classic style with just enough tweaks to set it apart from the droves of oft-worn Triple Whites. Continuing to diversify its tonal range, Nike is bringing the model back once again though in a coloring of Spruce Aura, a proprietary hue that is a close but not an exact likeness to the that coveted Air Fear of God 1’s most vibrant. And though it opts for a base of one color, the shade diverges by wide margins from panel to panel: the toe caps are almost white in their finish, matching adjacent pieces such as the tooling, swoosh, and eye stay, but the suede constructions seated in between prefer something darker with a suede textures increasing visual intrigue. Moreover, the ankle flap and heel wrap seem to be the most saturated — their pebbled leathers brandishing with the titular green in force — with the multiplied AIR wrap and tread arriving much lighter.
