It's already a hot girl summer, but it looks like this is panning out to be a deconstructed summer too! The influence of Virgil Abloh's signature deconstructed look for his Off-White x Nike collaborations lives on. This time, yet again, in the timeless silhouette that is the Nike Air Force 1, now in a more minimalistic way.

More than half of the upper is made up of black leather. We can already picture you wincing at the thought of another leather AF1, but not to worry we've got just the crease prevention tips you need, click here to read. Towards the heel of the sneaker yellow stitching lies just above the black velcro strap with a pale pink patch and a signature Nike swoosh.
Below the eyelets is a grey strip with 'N. 354' printed in yellow just below, as this sneaker is part of the 2019 Nike N.354 Pack. This pack is all about "capturing the innovative nature of Nike. While creating a place to test ideas." A white strip that resembles tape, covers the toe box, spilling out onto the upper. Rather than the usual leather tongue you would expect from an AF1, we're greeted by a soft, foam tongue with circular indents. Complemented by a breathable grey mesh quarter panel and heel in contrast to the leather heel on the outer side of the upper.
Earlier in July we saw a white pair with red, blue and black accents, images courtesy of dizzykong:
Like many new and innovative sneaker releases by Nike the white colourway sold out fairly quickly, with plenty people missing out. Should you expect anything different with this new pair?
