Nike has selected a group of designers to rethink the Air Force 1 and the Air Jordan 1. Behind “The 1 Reimagined” are 14 women, including colorists, materials specialists, and men’s and women’s mainline footwear designers, ultimately responsible for five new takes on each iconic sneaker.
As could be expected, the project in turn ushers in a number of firsts, such as the tallest stack height ever on an Air Force 1 (12mm), the first Air Force 1 Mule in the AF1 Lover XX, and back-to-front construction with corset lacing.
Some have been recognizing “The 1 Reimagined” as “The Ten” for women, although the shoes are expected to be available in sizes up to 13.
The reworked Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 models include the all-new AF1 Explorer XX, AJ1 Explorer XX, AF1 Lover XX, AJ1 Lover XX, AF1 Sage XX, AJ1 Sage XX, AF1 Rebel XX, AJ1 Rebel XX, AF1 Jester XX, and AJ1 Jester XX.
“The 1 Reimagined” are scheduled to arrive from February 7.
