Description
ACRONYM and Errolson Hugh’s version of the Air Force 1s is a fresh update on the 35-year-old silhouette; besides the timely design, it will also make your feet happier and more comfortable than the originals. However, the high fashion design may ask of you more of your time and thought in matching it the rest of your wardrobe. For purists, the zippers may also be off-putting.

It may be hard to believe that classics such as the Nike Air Force 1 could last this long, but alas, last year the brand marked the 35th year since the silhouette was first released. In order to celebrate a momentous event such as this, Nike tapped five talents to create their own versions of the iconic shoe in an all-white design. Among them was ACRONYM’s Errolson Hugh, whose take on the silhouette was released in December 2017.

This is not the first time that German label ACRONYM and designer Errolson Hugh collaborated with the shoemaking giant as the two companies have released together a collection in as recent as two years ago. The all-white design is different from usual ACRONYM releases that are often known to be colorful. Still, Hugh lets his style code shine with the Nike original by finding a way to incorporate zippers traveling all the way towards the toe into the shoes. The usual Nike signatures—the swoosh and branding—are already given. The partnership is a match made in heaven, as both share the affinity for designs that are functional and for taking advantage of technology in creating their garments and accessories.

Pros

The original Nike Air Force 1s did not have zippers, so to see them in this collab between Nike and ACRONYM is indeed intriguing. While one might automatically assume that these are put on the sneakers for aesthetics, these are actually functional, making taking off the shoe and putting the feet back in effortless. There are also welcome updates inside that make this a more comfortable version than the 35-year-old originals: the kicks employ a Lunarlon midsole and a VAC-TECH heel. With the dominance of athleisurewear, Errolson Hugh’s take actually looks high fashion, making its appeal wider than to just sneakerheads alone.

Cons

With the pros said, you just cannot please everyday. Some will still contest the changes incorporated in the design that make it different than that of the original Air Force 1s. The style grew on some people, but it cannot be guaranteed for everyone. Also, these white sneakers are not as easy to pull off as other simpler versions, requiring more effort in including it to your outfit.
