Model: Air Force 1 “What the LA”
Key Features: The patchwork-like design of this Air Force 1 is inspired by Los Angeles and its many Major League sports teams. The colors from teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, Dodgers, and Angels are found throughout the mismatched sneakers. The text “Los Angeles” is also on each of the heels. Basketball-style material is found on the medial Swoosh of the right shoe, while baseball-inspired stitching is found on the lateral side of the same shoe.
Release Date: TBC (rumored to be October 1)
Buy: Likely Nike and select retailers
Editor’s Notes: Leaked product images suggest Nike could be releasing a Los Angeles-themed “What the” Air Force 1. The Swoosh has released several “What the” sneakers in the past, most famously the “What the” Nike SB Dunk Low, which incorporated some of the best colorways seen on the silhouette. This version, while also patchwork and mismatched, instead takes inspiration from the City of Angels and its many sports franchises. Check it out above.
