The Nike Air Force 1 (AF1) is the latest iconic kick to get equipped with weatherproof Gore-Tex, just in time for the holidays.
Converse, another brand owned by the sportswear giant, has released multiple Chuck Taylor All-Stars that incorporate the rugged, trademarked fabric. But for now, just two AF1s baring the Swoosh with Gore-Tex linings are being released.
The first is a white-and-blue high-top with a twist: the upper boasts a zippered bootie that's both fashionable and functional in bad weather.
The second is a classic, Army green-and-tan low-top with layered ballistic nylon and full-grain leather. Either would serve as a stylishly prudent choice for those who live in an area that gets whacked with snow and slush in the winter.
Gore-Tex clothing collabs are all the rage these days, but it was Danner that first used it way back in 1978. The Oregon-based footwear company recently unveiled the Danner Light 40th Anniversary Edition boot to celebrate four decades partnership.
As for the Nike Air Force 1 Gore-Tex models, a specific release date or price hasn't been announced. Keep your eyes peeled for a drop in between October and December.
