The Gore-Tex x Nike Air Force 1 High WTR ‘The 10TH’ entwines street style and functionality for winter protection. Issued in October 2019, this edition presents a zippered nylon bootie and black leather upper treated with water-resistant technology, floating Swooshes and a bungee closure system. Bright logos and a rubberized heel badge advance the outdoors aesthetic. The sneaker comes complete with Air cushioning encased in a duck boot-inspired sole.
As stealthy as it gets, the Air Force 1 WTR Gore-Tex Black is releasing as part of the Swoosh’s insanely popular ‘THE 10TH‘ collection that’s pays tribute to co-found Bill Bowerman’s legendary career. Like a mix between the Nike flagship and a military boot, a high cut ballistic nylon and tumbled leather construction offers added protection against the elements and ankle support. Around the toe, the famed perforations are present for breathability, but it is fortified by a hard shell.
Moving downwards, a blued out Air midsole is present for comfort that’s truly next level, and the outdoorsy nature is shifted up a gear via a zipper bootie that works with the lacing system for the ultimate lockdown fit. To round it all off, striking yellow “GORE-TEX” branding graces the heel, completing the design.
