Everyone loves stealthy designs on famous Nike sneakers and the Air Force 1 low is the perfect silhouette to experiment to your heart’s content. Chances are, you may end up with something legendary like a triple black colorway that’s to die for. Although Nike has tried similar colorways in the past, there’s just something about the matte black on this latest Air Force 1 colorway that hits differently. Presenting, the Nike Air Force 1 Low Triple Stealth Bomber. Appearing to be inspired by the stealth Airplane itself!
The Air Force 1 Low is still going strong in terms of popularity from when it was first released back in the early ‘80s. They were discontinued but being the legendary design that it was, fans basically forced them back into stores due to raging demand. The simplicity, as well as the technology that went into these sneakers, were unmatched and people had not had enough of the silhouette even though Nike thought they were getting old. Today, they’ve racked in more revenue than any other OG Nike sneaker along with the Air Max line. Pushing the hype further was its introduction into the modern pop culture which further elevated its status and inspired concept art like this Air Force 1 Low Triple Stealth Bomber.
Coming to the design, things are kept quite simple in terms of the color blocking at closer inspection but they are embellished with 3 shades of black. A greyish-black leather covers the toes, side panels that feature two small perforations, and the heel overlays. Perforated toe boxes lead up to jet-black leather eye stays and throats that are matched by classic black laces that blend right in. Moving up, matching jet-black tongues that appear to be direct extensions of the throats are slightly contrasted by grey tongue tags and black “Nike Air Force 1” branding.
Sock liners are also black, leading down to black interiors with likely grey inserts and additional black Nike Air branding. The heels are not visible but we can make out grey heel tabs that likely feature more embroidered branding. The side panels don large matte black leather Swooshes, likely on each side while matching dark midsoles with embossed “Air” tags and rugged outsoles finish off the design.
