The Nike Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 are without a doubt both classic sneakers in their own right. They both come from the 1980s and represent an era of footwear that helped push the industry to where it is today. With extremely similar shapes and panels, the two silhouettes are more alike than not and Nike is continuing to create Air Jordan 1-inspired Air Force 1 lows.
Following the release of "Royal," "Bred," and "Shadow" colorways, Nike strays away from the 1985 original colorways for a newer Air Jordan 1. With an official color code of Black/University Gold-White, this Air Force 1 Low draws inspiration from the Air Jordan 1 "New Love" released in 2006. Despite a slightly different hue of yellow, identical color blocking make for a very strong resemblance.
The Air Force 1 Low "New Love" is available now for $90 on Rock City Kicks.
