Are “beastly” and “rugged” phrases that come to mind when looking into footwear from Nike? Not exactly, right? Well, that’s all about to change once you see the Special Field Air Force 1 QS, a heck of a sturdy-looking, remarkably designed pair of sneakers built for the long haul. It’s rare that that can be said about men’s sneakers, but this pair is in a class all by itself.
Featuring ballistic nylon and full-grain leather, an intriguing combination when it comes to sneakers, these sturdy kicks are fit for wearing with slim joggers, dark denim or your favorite pair of black moto jeans. Accessorize ‘em with a slim bomber jacket and a maroon beanie for a bit of a pop of winter color, or keep it low-key with a grey crewneck and perfectly faded jeans for easygoing weekend style — even in the winter, these Nike kicks can stand up to (most) tough conditions out there. Try the Special Field Air Force 1 QS and see for yourself. – $145
