True to past Yow-centric Nike releases, this Air Force 1 uses a rich pink hue on its upper. Here, however, it’s applied in an appealing alternate fashion, thanks to soft airbrush style fades that make room for contrasting crisp white tones. The Swoosh detailing is doubled up, with a perforated iteration taking a normal place on the quarter and a thickly embroidered drop Swoosh appearing directly below.
Pink ribbon laces offer a thoughtfully direct nod to the fight against cancer. Hits of navy on the tongue badge and heel provide accenting color, and a small ribbon graphic appears directly under the heel tab as well. The Kay Yow Cancer Fund’s mission statement appears on the insoles, and a classic white midsole with pink detailing completes the look.
