New Heights and No Limits

The SF AF-1 is Nike’s sweet addition to the boot market, but on November 2, it looks like they’ll have the corner on it. The Special Field Air Force 1 “New Heights” zeroes in on fashion, function, and everything in between. Even at $200, the tough construction of this boot will give you your money’s worth.

New Heights and No Limits

Nike proves once again that even once they reach new heights, not even the sky is the limit. New Heights with a super-high hi-top with zipper detail that reaches the mid-calf. The toe retains its characteristic look in leather, and is paired with a ballistic-grade mesh throughout the rest of the shoe.

Roped In

Laces are so last-year. New Heights welcomes bungee cord rope “laces,” which wrap around the calf. The ropes are fully adjustable through a vertical series of 6 loops at the heel.

Sure, the loops help with the fit, but their flash is bigger than their function– or are they? In a bind (no pun intended) and need to repel off the side of a building? You’ll be glad to have New Heights on your feet.

Over and Out

Each of the colorways takes on a different look. Total Orange is a loud, bold statement shoe, while Rattan has a sedated, softer look. Rattan also echoes the neutral tone of Timberlands and Ugg boots. Black has a sporty, but industrial look to it that says it’s all action, Doc Martens-style.

Jump On It

The newest addition to the AF-1 family is bound to be one its defining members. Get your boots on the ground and head over to your favorite Nike retailer to grab SF AF-1 “New Heights” in time for Winter 2017. The Women’s New Heights arrives later, on December 1.
