Nike Air Force 1 & Blazer “Popcorn”

It seems so distant when you could get together with your significant other and go on a movie date. Strolling back to pre-Covid times, around here, we certainly miss going to the cinema. After all, our lives turned digital and every single release can be watched from the comfort of your sofa.

Now, this can be done with style. Keep on reading.

Inspired by one of the most popular snacks, the new Nike Air Force 1 “Popcorn” is dressed in premium “Coconut Milk” tumbled leather for its base. Without being corny, this popcorn-inspired silhouette presents delicate crisp white details on the upper, specifically on the Swoosh, laces and tongue. Moreover, dark red embellishments are softly integrated and spotted on the tongue and heel, delivering a small yet striking contrast.

Further detailing rounds off this impeccable sneaker: custom insoles, displaying a macro-shot of popcorn itself and a golden “fresh since ‘82” on the rear panel, paying homage to the AF1’s birth year.

Underneath, it’s business as usual: a chunky white midsole with a matching outsole.

On the other hand, we have the Nike Blazer Mid “Popcorn”, the next joint in this mouth-watering drop. Invertedly dressed, when comparing to the AF1, this Blazer Mid boasts an elegant white tumbled leather upper combined with “Coconut Milk” elements, such as the Swoosh, heel panels, laces and midsole.

Keeping the retro vibes like they should be, nylon tongues and liners finish off this butter-flavoured iteration. Just like its big brother, dark red details are also suggested, as well as “fresh since ‘77” letterings, nodding to its date of origin, and of course, custom and special edition graphic insoles.

Do not wait for the pop and bang. Get them online on the 9th of March.
