Nike releases Another Vachetta Air Force 1 LV8

    Nike Air Force 1 LV8 Vachetta

    As clean as it can be: Nike Air Force 1 LV8 Vachetta

    The Nike Air Force 1 is back in Vachetta Tan. Now, you might be a little less keen on this. After all, this isn’t the first such release from the Swoosh.

    In fact, NikeLab’s previous iteration of the Air Force 1 sports the Vachetta Tan scheme all over. To fight that fatigue, this release lowers the volume, so this doesn’t become just another Vachetta Nike Air Force 1 LV8.

    The LV8 line is a blessing to those of us that are fans and who love the Air Force 1. It’s like seeing your favorite sneaker re-imagined for the good, or for the premium, something even better.

    This model, in particular, takes on premium, durable leather for its upper. The base color scheme here is White, a staple in both sneaker and hip-hop culture.



    About the Nike Air Force 1:

    Designed in 1982, by Bruce Kilgore, the original Nike Air Force 1 was the first ever bball shoe to include Nike’s Air technology. At first, the AF1 was simply called “Air Force”, the “1” designation simply came later on.

    As we previously said, the one and only was released back more than three decades ago. Up until this day, it still holds an icon-status among many sneakers enthusiasts and collectors.

    The swoosh brand and the Air Force 1 model continue to be linked to sportswear, lifestyle and musical sub-cultures as a whole. There is no way around it, the Air Force 1 is just part of our way of living, as a community.

    In contrast to earlier drops, this particular AF1 only sports hints of Vachetta Tan on the heel tab and tongue. Nonetheless, it’s still the same good old classic model. Rasheed Wallace would definitely mess with these.

    You can find this version of the beloved AF1 over at Foot District.
