Nike Air Force 1 High EMB Gets a Dodgers-Friendly MakeoverPOSTED ON:
Apr 16 2021
Timeless and versatile in every sense of the words, the Air Force 1 is hands down one of the most popular silhouettes under the Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.31%) footwear category. This Spring, the Swoosh is fashioning its Air Force 1 High EMB silhouette with a two-toned arrangement that’s clearly inspired by the LA Dodgers.
Most of the real estate on these MLB-influenced kicks are treated with smooth leather uppers, that of which are visible along the side paneling, heel overlays, collars and perforated toe boxes. Adjacent to this are “Rush Blue” accents that are reflective of the 2020 World Series champions. This hue is painted over the Swooshes, forefoot overlays, throat overlays and the straps, all of which are materialized with a canvas twill. Additional elements to point out include the tiny white Swooshes that are embroidered into the strap, the retro-inspired tongue tags and the debossed Nike branding that is situated on the lower lateral heels in Dodger-esque font. Midsoles receive a crisp white coating, and come stacked above a matching “Rush Blue” outsole.
