There’s a clear-cut difference between what sneaker giant Nike is doing with its lauded line of essential men’s kicks, and then there’s everyone else the brand continues to lap. Be it in matters of innovation, style or performance, Nike seems to be a step ahead (pun intended) of the pack, and stylish-yet-durable footwear like the Nike Air Force 1 GORE-TEX proves that.
These sleek sneakers, as you would expect, update the utterly iconic Air Force 1 silhouette with the kind of materials and design touches that give them plenty more wearability throughout the entire year.
Water-wicking flat laces and GORE-TEX’s own certified waterproof technology stand out from the pack, as do the range of seriously cool, “street-approved” colorways — not to mention the agreeable price. We’d argue you need at least one pair of these, if not more, in your rotation as soon as possible.
