Nike continues their long string of eye-catching Air Force 1’s with this all-over Gum take on the Downtown Hi LW in a fast-approaching Quickstrike release. Gum rubber has always been a key part of sneakers in recent years, but its usual role in the mid and outsole is expanded to cover the entire upper for an aesthetic look that is sure to become a fan favorite. Using the textile on everything from the Swoosh to the ankle strap, branding, and toe box, the only thing Nike hasn’t converted are the black laces, which add a bit of contrast to the otherwise monochromatic colorway. Be on the lookout for their release beginning December 7 at select shops, including Yamaotoko.
Release Date: December 7, 2013 (Saturday)
