Following its bold “Watermelon” iteration of the Air Force 1 ‘07 LV8, Nike has dropped a new “Black/Bright Crimson” colorway of the classic silhouette, embellished with contrasting top-stitching that gives off a crisp DIY look.
Starting at the top of the shoes, a woven “Nike Air” tab in “Green Strike” has been placed at the tongue, followed by clean white laces that cover the forefoot. Contrasting the shoe’s black leather base, bright red top-stitching outlines the gridded white Swoosh on the sidewalls, riding up towards the rear and tracing the edges of the heel counter and backstay. While these stitches follow the edges of certain panels, the shoe is detailed in other places as well, like the trapezoid at the upper eyelet, zig-zags at the mid-section and “X” mark at the toe box. All of these features sit above a black midsole that comes with white accents around the foxing, rear “AIR” branding and outsole.
The Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LV8 “Black/Bright Crimson” is currently available at JD Sports’ website for $110 USD.
