Brand: Premium Goods x Nike
Model: Air Force 1 Low
Release Date: 2022
Editor's Notes: Nike's relationships with regional sneaker boutiques across the States have birthed some of its greatest creations across several silhouettes. If you're posted up in one of these locations, you take first dibs, or more often than not, the only dibs, giving you a one-up on those across the country.
For true, ride-or-die type sneakerheads, getting hands on these region-locked silhouettes is part of the fun; it's what keeps the game exciting in an industry now dominated by online raffles, bots, and the rest.
If you're posted up out Housten, then Nike's latest regional offering is just for you. Arriving courtesy of Premium Goods – which sells all of your favorite New Balance, Jordans, and the like – the ever-iconic Air Force 1 Low receives a luxe update that goes heavy on details, making each portion of the silhouette worthy of attention.
Beginning with the colorway, Premium Goods' rendition takes on a somewhat luxurious aesthetic, thanks to the pairing of black and beige, further contrasted by a milky white sole and tongue.
This panda-like coloring serves as a clean foundation for several textural elements. Starting at the lateral and medial sides, you'll find a quilted pattern underlay that features tiny star cutouts, beaded Swooshes and heel counters, rope laces, gold laces dubres, and red Premium Goods branding at the tongue.
No matter which angle you look at this pair from, you'll find yourself captivated by the attention to detail that the Housten-based retailer has put into the collaboration. If you want an example of how hard you should go if Nike offers you a region-locked team-up – this is it.
