We’re back! This time with yet another creative sneaker concept, this time for a Nike Air Force 1 Low. Welcome to the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Claret’, a sneaker that’s set to be sought after by sneakerheads and sports fans alike. Here’s why, the mock-up boasts one of the hottest shoe silhouettes in sneaker history, whilst the colourway is representative of a handful of sports teams around the globe; West Ham United, Burnley FC and West Indies cricket just to name a few. Although there is no direct link to these sports organisations, the coincidence alone is enough to get people talking about this specific concept colourway. Stay tuned as we dive into the finer details.
We begin with the upper, where the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Claret’ arrives predominately in an all-claret base, as the name would suggest. The shoe’s inner ankle meshing, laces, metallic lace tab and side panels, all arrive with this base claret hue. In addition to this, we see electric blue accents that complement the sneaker tremendously. The electric blue hue has been appointed to the notorious Nike side swoosh – it offers a burst of colour that catches the eye and entices closer examination. In addition to the swoosh, the sneaker’s cotton tongue tab also arrives in electric blue and provides a sense of balance to the overall aesthetic.
As we take a closer look at the base of the shoe, we find that both the midsole and outsole boast an all-in-one claret colour blocking. This goes without saying that sneaker also uses claret stitching to ensure that the shoe flows without colour disruption. Like most Nike Air Force 1 Low models, the ‘Claret’ edition uses traditional materials: a leather upper and a rubber midsole. It’s a design concept that has been adopted as a fan-favourite over the years and we are equally excited to see what becomes of this latest concept mock-up.
