Nike Sportswear took to Instagram to tease the release of a new take on the Air Force 1, this time with a complete Flyknit construction. In the short video preview, the new build sees the original hardwood icon pick up a cored-out outsole and a Flyknit build that work together to reduce the shoe's weight by 50%, which is no joke for a model known for its bulk. The red/black/white look seen here with icy blue touches for the heel and toe should be among the first to release in the weeks ahead. Until then, check the gallery below and let us know what you think of this new and improved AF1.
