Usually sneaker releases evolve in a more linear fashion with changes first in the colorway, then swapping out materials and textures, and finishing with wild prints and skins. Nike, however, continue to blaze their own path, recently releasing the Air Force 1 Downtown with a scaly faux Python skin before giving us a preview of their upcoming line-up of options in varied colorways. In terms of structure, the Downtown is a slimmer, more nimble version of the AF1, with a shortened midsole, refined upper, and new materials used behind the Swoosh and for the tongue. And, for December, Nike is offering this silo in a White/Green, White/White, a White with a translucent midsole, a bold Green with white accents, and both a Black with soft black accents and another with a glossy overlay. All looks will be dropping beginning December 15 at Nike retailers across the map. Check out the full offering after the jump.
