With ultra-durable ballistic nylon uppers, detachable dual ankle straps and espionage pockets on its tongues for stealthy storage, these bold and badass 1s look fit to double as actual boots on the ground.

But the trademark swooshes and perforated vamps remind wearers that they're really just cushy sneakers, better suited to squaring off in everyday style battlefields.
