Brace Yourself, Because the SF-AF1 Craze Is Real


Another colorway.

Who hasn’t bought a pair of women’s sneakers? We all know the drill.

If you wear a size 8.5 in men’s, you go to the store, and, without making too much eye contact with the Footlocker lady, you grab the lady sneakers and ask for a size 10.

Only me? No way.

I did that with the Sand 4s wayyyyyyyy back in the day. Still have those things, too.

I digress, because the above kicks are the story here. Nike is releasing another one of those ridiculously high top Air Forces — officially called the Nike SF-AF1 — and this time, they’ll be for women.

So if you’re short on Valentines Day ideas, heads up! There is no official release date yet, but all reports point to a drop later this month. No word on retail yet, either.

The soles of these joints are all black, and the rather large upper is binary blue. Peep the pics and hit the comments with your opinion.

    your name is Purple PieGAWD, you probably require psychological help IRL. Leave the sneakers to adults

    I also did that back in the day with the Sand 4s, Sunset 5s and Ice Blue 8s but back then Jordan Brand used to make Womens sneakers up to size 13 which was my size a mens 11.5 Wonder why they stopped, its not as if the shoes would sit yes theres no women that are size 13 but a guy would buy them easily. Those Velvet maroon 11s would be instantly bought

  • I agree! I can’t get jiggy with these either. I see a few people that pulled them off but overall I ain’t feeling these.

  • Yep! I remember people losing it over the White/Carolina Blue wmns 12s.

  • Lol you never know.

    TRASH. If it isn’t a traditional boot color, it just doesn’t work with these.

    The same trash hating this shoe here would blow their $2,000 piggy bank McDonald’s money for this silo in a flash if it had 3 stripes on the side, lmaoooooo trash ass niggas

    So you own a pair then no?

  • Lewis Redding

    i find the SF-AF1 a beautiful, forward thinking, rugged, comfortable, ahead of its time shoe. the double ankle straps (the lower paracord one with the buckle really sets the design off) are perfect. if you can find me a pair NiB for anywhere close to the $165 retail, then I’ll cop it up, but as for now the SF-AF1 is sold out at outlets like and is going for $300+ at resellers (eBay, kixify, etc)

    To each their own GAWD. It’s all good.
