The Subtle Minimalism of the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Chenille Swoosh” Quietly Impresses

Not many sneakers use chenille—but this one does to tremendous effect.


Nike has been churning out colorway after colorway in rapid succession for the Air Force 1 Low in recent times. The silhouette’s timeless design and remarkable aesthetic flexibility make it the ideal platform for the display of countless designs. This time around, the approach being taken is that of nuance and subtlety—the hallmarks of the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Chenille Swoosh” which returns after having been off shelves since 2021.

The shoe’s titular chenille Swooshes, colored soft pink, provide energy and vim to an otherwise quiet color palette without being obtrusive or garish. This same shade of pink can be seen on the tongue, heel, and insole branding for additional visual cohesion. To add further depth, the Swooshes boast an embroidered finish.

The gentle, minimalistic light-colored hues of sail and bone are highly effective, providing pseudo-artisanal imagery. This sneaker makes use of specific textural qualities as well via the use of heavily tumbled leather on the base.

While not necessarily noticeable at first glance, the gilded dubraes are a nice addition as well. Standing out even more than usual due to the sneaker’s minimalistic color palette, the dubraes add glamour and class to the design.

Available exclusively at Finish Line, the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Chenille Swoosh” was released on 26 February 2024. One pair sells for US$120.
