Editor’s Notes: Since 1982, over 1,500 iterations of the Air Force 1 have been introduced to the public. Now, NYC-based denim company 3×1 has updated the classic silhouette in its premium selvedge denim.
The denim master’s no stranger to firsts, having previously constructed a custom capsule of denim-inset surfboards and BBQ aprons. Their latest use of the timeless fabric comes in light stonewashed indigo, darker “medium vintage” indigo, and washed-out black/gray.
For each of the three colorways, the luxury label has utilized bespoke denim sourced from Japan’s Kuroki denim mill, finished off with “Bowerman Orange” selvedge IDs near the tongue of each left shoe.
The red stitching on both editions, wrapping around the lower portion of the upper, is a standout feature that subtly identifies the selvedge denim.
