Nike Is Selling Limited Release Air Force Trainers With Changeable Zip-On Swoosh
| Last updated
Don't you just hate it when the swoosh on your Nike Air Force trainers remains the same colour eeeevery siiiingle day?
Well fear not, because Nike has addressed this massive inconvenience with a new limited release premium version of the trainers that come with a zip-on swoosh function.
The Air Force 1 '07 Premium trainers are available in either black or white, with the black coming with silver, neon yellow and black detachable swooshes, and the white coming with red, white and iridescent pink swooshes.
Picture the scene: You stroll into the pub (post coronavirus) in your white Air Force trainers and a mate goes, 'Hold on a minute, I thought the swoosh on those trainers were red when you wore them yesterday?!' At which point, you swing your foot up on a chair and go, 'Yeah mate, they were. Now they're iridescent pink - these bad boys have got a changeable swoosh function baby'.
You'd be the coolest dude in the whole damn pub.
Here they are 'in action':
Unfortunately though, when I say these trainers are limited release, I mean it.
They come out tomorrow (24 April) but are only available in Japan on the atmos Tokyo website and in atmos and Nike stores in the country, priced at ¥14,000 (£105). But once they're all sold out, I'm sure you'll be able to grab yourself a pair on eBay for like £8,000 or something.
Perhaps a little more relevant and worthwhile are the range of trainers Nike released in December which were especially designed to meet the needs of healthcare workers.
Product testing for the Nike Air Zoom Pulse was carried out with the help of 'everyday heroes' at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon, in order to determine what demands a shoe must meet for such workers.
The result is a shoe that is durable, comfortable and versatile, with spill protection and a grippy sole.
Notable features include a laceless upper with an easy clean vamp, an elastic strap to keep the heel securely contained and allow for an easy slip on, and a durable rubber sole with a traction pattern designed to maintain grip on wet surfaces.
