The Beijing Olympic Games inspired this Air Force 1, along with many other recent Nike releases. They feature a fresh and simple colorway, which is not only perfect for summer, but also a nice change from loud sneaker color schemes. Plus, Nike added perforations on the side panels. The ornate octagon shaped pattern is being recognized as Nike's official communication of an Olympics inspired product. We all know the Air Force 1 will always lend itself nicely to a minimal colorway.
