What We’re Saying: Quick, name a sneaker more iconic than the all-white Air Force 1. A staple in any respectable collection, the clean colorway of the legendary shoe has long since been recognized as one of — if not the — best sneaker(s) ever made. So how does such an influential shoe get even better? Easy, just add GORE-TEX.

We recently spotted the Air Force 1 GTX (GTX stands for GORE-TEX, to anyone wondering) in the classic all-white colorway. This means the crisp pair is capable of withstanding the elements — so to speak — thanks to a waterproof membrane. Highlighting the GTX designation, the term "GORE-TEX" is embroidered towards the heel of the nylon canvas and leather shoe, while tonal Nike branding then marks the pair via the Swoosh on the side and Nike Air logo on the heels. Below, you will find a cushioned cupsole and a semi-translucent outsole to round out the design elements. Per imagery via COVERCHORD, we see that the Forces come with two sets of laces: one grey pair and one white with lace locks.

If you're looking to level-up your Air Force 1 game, visit retailers like COVERCHORD to add the GORE-TEX pair to your arsenal ASAP. For more, here are the best AF1s for every budget.
