AIR FORCE 1 WTR GTX
The exploits of Bill Bowerman have served as the inspiration for quite a few Nike projects over the years. That makes perfect sense; Bowerman was an integral force behind the establishment of Nike as a global powerhouse of innovation and performance. The latest Bowerman inspired work is a little different, in that goes beyond the legendary running coach turned designer’s athletic background. During World War II, Coach Bowerman was Major Bowerman of the US Army’s 10th Mountain Division. Nike’s 10th Collection, draws on the 10th’s time in the mountainous regions of Italy, with ultra modern silhouettes that embrace outdoors, utility minded design.
The winterized, Gore-Tex edition of the Air Force 1 that fans return to every year gets a militarized update, as part of the 10th range of footwear. A nylon ripstop, upper with zippered bootie ankle collar is overlaid with leather, and outfitted with Gore-Tex membranes, for a look that adds a tactical, jungle boot influence to the classic street style of the Air Force 1.
