Both pairs use their Swooshes for contrast, but do it in a different fashion. "Midnight Turquoise" serves up a dark, blotchy cow print on the right lateral and left medial sides with shimmering blue snakeskin coming to the right medial and left lateral panels. On the other end of the spectrum, "Club Gold" goes for croc on left lateral and right medial, then adds cow fur to right lateral and left medial. Unintentionally or otherwise, both of these make for a predator and prey setup, an ethos rooted in atmos's famous "Animal Pack" Air Maxes.
A final difference arrives via the heel and tongue branding — "Midnight Turquoise" stays tonal while "Club Gold" adds more secondary color. White rubber midsoles and outsoles round off both styles.
These special AF1s are available now at retailers like Solebox and Sneakersnstuff, each priced at $120 USD.
Moving to a different Swoosh subdivision, Nike ACG has readied its ACG Moc 3.0 in "Midnight Navy."
