Can you Solve the “Rubik’s Cube” Nike Air Force 1 Low?Published:
July 25, 2023
Last year, Nike released an Air Force 1 Low inspired by everyone’s favorite family card game, UNO. And this year, it looks like we’ll be getting a new Air Force 1 Low that takes cues from another iconic children’s toy, the Rubik’s Cube.
Aptly dubbed the “Rubik’s Cube” Nike Air Force 1 Low, this upcoming colorway pays homage to the beloved 3-D puzzle designed by Hungarian architecture professor Ernõ Rubik in 1974. The sneaker opts for a stark-white leather base, highlighted by colorful leather panels. The mudguards are given a deep red tone, the eyestays are done in yellow, and the lateral heel panels boast a bold blue hue.
In a fun twist, Nike opts for orange paneling on the medial heels instead of the blue used for the lateral heels. Green leather heel tabs display “Nike Air” embroidered in white, while bright yellow leather strips are laid down the backs of the sneakers. The signature Swoosh overlays are done in white leather and feature red contrast stitching – the tongue tabs mimic this color combination.
White rubber midsole units display orange “Air” lettering on the lateral sides, denoting the presence of encased Air cushioning. Black rubber outsoles complete the colorful design.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Rubik’s Cube” is now available on DTLR.com and at DTLR stores.
