Too Hot to Handle? The Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Lava’

The Nike Air Force 1, a silhouette which has triumphed the sneaker scene for years on end. Since its release in 1982, the classic silhouette has been iconic for many reasons, two of which is the attention delivered on high-calibre collaborations and the vast versatility of the clean-cut all-white and all-black colourways – sneaker royalty by any means. With all that being said, there is no doubt as to why the Nike Air Force 1 Low is a hot topic, well… it’s about to get hotter! Here we have yet another creative custom supplied by the team here at Custom Kicks. The new Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Lava’ is sneaker which is surely set to turn some heads on the streets, not to mention the ‘gram. Let’s take a closer look.

First things first, the colourway of the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Lava’ is predominately black with crimson red accenting, an aesthetic highly suggesting of its name. The sneaker’s upper arrives with a black base made from plush leather and is accompanied by soft black meshing in and around the ankle collar. The given eye-candy for this sneaker though has to be the bright crimson red accenting. The creative designers have gone for a red Nike side swoosh, red lacing ladder, red tongue and a red metallic lace tab. In true two-tone traditions, the colours complement each other perfectly and we can’t help but feel as though this mock-up may be a new and improved version of Nike’s official general release sneaker of 2012, the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Black Action Red’.

The sneaker’s midsole continues the two-tone theme, with all black detailing and stitching. The notorious ‘Air’ logo also follows suit and is blacked out alongside the rest of the midsole. That being said, the sneaker’s outsole arrives in bright crimson red, which further compliments the upper and initiates a sense of balance for the overall aesthetic.

Although this is just a mock-up custom designed by Custom Kicks, there are vast possibilities for the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Lava’ to become a reality. Nike’s custom ID service allows you to create your own designs and we expect the ‘Lava’ to act almost as a tutorial and provide inspiration for sneaker fans and enthusiasts seeking a custom pair.
