Considering 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the iconic Nike Air Force 1, it’s probably not a stretch to posit the upcoming year will see a cavalcade of Uptown releases. Not that we need a special occasion to appreciate the timeless appeal of the shoe. For some retro die-hards, the Air Force 1 represents the best of Nike’s throwback offerings, its clean lines and unfussy design making the sneaker easy to wear and easier to purchase in multiple colorways. A new premium pack in black or white is elegant in its simplicity, constructed with a subtly textured leather upper in tonal makeups that should make either style a welcome addition to the AF1 collector’s arsenal. They’re available for pre-order now through Japans mita sneakers.
