The Nike Air Force 1 has become an iconic symbol of New York City style. To celebrate the city's connection to the silhouette and honor the New York City Fire Department, Nike has a created a three-shoe pack consisting of the Low, Mid, and High editions of the AF1.
Each pair sports an obsidian leather upper with orange accents on the Jewel Swoosh, outsole, and heel. Reflective detailing is used on the "NYC" tongue tag and a Nike logo inspired by the FDNY crest on the heel. Additional nods to the FDNY are seen on special graphics on the insoles. The high-top iteration also features an orange strap striped with reflective 3M to further allude to the uniforms of New York City's Fire Department.
These colorways share inspiration with the New York Knicks' recently unveiled City Edition uniforms that honor the FDNY with an identical color scheme and similar graphics.
Note that although Nike SNKRS calls this pack "New York's Finest," that title is typically reserved for the NYPD by New Yorkers. The insoles however say "New York's Bravest," the standard motto for the FDNY.
This Nike Air Force 1 pack will be available at Nike SNKRS and other select retailers on Feb. 9. Prices will range from $150-$170.
