It turns out that the retro of the Air Alpha Force Low is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s to come from Nike this year in terms of old models returning. Also making its way back to retail in 2023 is the Air Footscape Woven, per a Nike document that was viewed by Complex. News of its return was initially reported by Sole Retriever last week.
The document reveals that this year’s Air Footscape Woven retro will be available in a black/smoke grey colorway for $150 and a brown cow-print version for $160. The two styles are women’s releases that will only be available at Nike’s “neighborhood” retail partners, according to the document.
Designed by Tory Orzeck, the original Nike Air Footscape made its debut in 1996. The Footscape Woven, which is a hybrid of the Air Footscape and Air Woven silhouettes, first released in the mid-2000s. The shoe is best known for its asymmetrical lacing system and woven stripe across the suede-based upper.
Nike has released several permutation of the Air Footscape since its introduction in the ‘90s, including the Flyknit, soccer-inspired Air Footscape Magista from 2015.
According to the document viewed by Complex, this year’s version of the Air Footscape Woven is scheduled to drop as part of the brand’s Fall 2023 lineup. At the time of writing, Nike has yet to confirm the return of the Air Footscape Woven.
