The Nike Air Force 1 retro style shoe was at the forefront of the sneakerhead craze during the earlier part of this decade.

Although the Nike Air Force 1 has not released in limitless colorways like previous years, this iconic silhouette has still received its share of attention.

Well here we get another two tone Air Force 1 low as the latest one comes in a loud White/Electric Green colorway. White leather makes up the majority of the base much like some of the more traditional Air Force 1's we have seen over the years. Yet, its electric green accents, such as the swoosh, outsole and Nike tongue branding, give this retro style shoe a very distinctive color scheme. Its complimentary attributes, including the monochromatic laces and inner lining, keep this shoe simple at the same time. From the outsole to the swoosh the shoe uses very simple color blocking to get its point across making the hue noticeable. Even though the color combination uses only two colors, electric green makes this Nike Air Force 1 retro style shoe very attracting.
