Model: Air Force 1 VTF
Key Features: This “big kids” Air Force 1 opts for a sandal-style look that ventures into mule territory with a little sprinkle of the Crocs aesthetic. While mules forgo any form of heel support at all, this Air Force 1 extends the Swoosh around the heel to create a strap that is reminiscent of a Crocs clog or a sandal. The rest of the shoe is exactly what you’d expect of an Air Force 1.

Editor’s Notes: Mules have become a somewhat unexpected part of the conversation this summer, alongside other warm-weather footwear brands like Birkenstock and Teva.
We’re not claiming the Swoosh design team are on the #MuleBoyz movement, but this heel-less Air Force 1 VTF certainly ventures into that territory. Unfortunately, though, the Mule Force 1 only comes in children’s sizing. And if we’re being strictly technical, the VTF isn’t actually a mule, but rather a sandal. Still, the similarities are plain to see. Long live the mule!
