Nike Air Force 1 Winter Goretex

Nike take their latest Air Force 1 to the next level mixing technologically advanced construction with hints of the militaria.

The Gore-Tex dressed pair is yet another in the “The 10th” series, a line dedicated to the iconic Bill Bowerman and the heroics of his decorated military career. Cut to a high-top height, the pair evokes quite a bit of connection to the model’s duck boot tooling as hardened shells arm the toe box for winter weather, overlays of smooth leathers as well as ballistic nylons further proof the silhouette for harsher weather conditions. The off-white colourway comes contrast with icy blue soles and swooshes as well as bold “GORE-TEX” emblazoned right on the heel. The addition of the ‘zipper bootie’ adorned with toggles at the rear make for an easy on-and-off.

Pairs will be releasing via our online store on Friday the 1st of November from 12am AEDT.

Pairs will be available US8 through to US13 (including some half sizes) for $280AUD.

Until Friday we’ll leave you with all of the finer details after the jump…

Nike The 10th React Ianga + Sertu

Nike deliver their latest chapter ‘The 10th’ with the React Ianga, and Sertu silhouettes. Each pair pays homage to co-founder Bill Bowerman’s time serving in the US Army’s 10th Mountain Division during World War II. 

As Bowerman and his men’s primary responsibility was to bravely scale snowy alpine peaks for the Allied cause, the shoe enlists just enough combat-ready design details and materials to tell their story succinctly. The base combines tightly-woven rugged black fabric with tumbled black leather, while wheat detailing and trim dispersed around the upper’s oblong mid-foot overlay, collar, and abstract-shaped heel piece nod to standard-issue GI boots. There’s only a single small Swoosh present on each shoe, and it’s placed at the bottom of the throat’s lace overlay, while a “The 10th” badge on the lateral heel collar provides the most direct salute to Bowerman’s service. Down below, an instantly recognisable white React midsole with a plethora of gum rivets and a single pop of bright orange completes the look.

The Sertu continues to take on inspiration from the rugged outdoor expeditions through premium suede and leather overlays, combined with subtle homages to past Nike silhouettes with woven detailing.

Both pairs will release at midnight (12am) this coming Friday the 6th of September. Sizes US7 through to US13 (including some half sizes) will be available in the Langa for $190AUD and Sertu for $220AUD
