After the Nike Air Force 1 High x Air Bakin' failed to catch ground, Nike Sportswear is back with its latest hybrid AF1.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low CMFT 'Mowabb' combines the classic Air Force 1 with the ACG Air Mowabb. This is not a new concept though, in 2008 a Mowabb-inspired Air Force 1 Low Premium was released. It's okay if you don't remember them, most people don't. But here we are, six years later and the two have been fused together.

The latest version incorporates more elements of the Air Mowabb into the Air Force 1, rather than just materials and colorway. It's got the tooling of the AF1, but with the tongue of the Mowabb in the form of a Neoprene bootie as well as extra perforations on the side panels for added breathability and back heel pull tab detailing. Instead of 'ACG' written on the tongue, 'AF1' is found there in the original orange font.

Two colorways are set to hit nike.com as well as select Nike Sportswear retailers on Saturday, September 27. One comes in beige/black with orange and blue accents and the other in brown/burgundy with crimson and purple accents.
