The “Rubik’s Cube” Inspires This Iteration of the Nike Air Force 1 Low
It's not at all puzzling why the AF1 is the perfect silhouette.
[Update 19 Jul 2023] Get ready to put on your thinking caps, as the Nike Air Force 1 “Rubik’s Cube” is set to drop on Nike and select retailers on 1 August. It’s expected to retail at US$130.
Whether it be food as seen on the Jarritos x Nike SB Dunk Low, or the animals that inspire the “Animal Instinct” collection, anything and everything is an inspiration for Nike. And the Rubik’s Cube, one of pop culture’s most iconic products, is the next the Swoosh’s design team takes influence from.
The upper is adorned in a myriad of hues strongly derivative of the puzzle’s polychromatic palette. White forms the base layer exposed through the toebox, quarter panels, laces, Swooshes, and interiors. This careful placement lending contrast for the surrounding overlays of red, yellow, blue, orange, and green to bask in the spotlight. Below, a vivid orange dresses the “AIR” on the midsoles. Black outfits the outsole in its entirety to finish off the shoe.
There’s no release date disclosed just yet but more details should emerge within the coming weeks or months. Stay tuned!
