Every year brings new surprises to the sneaker game including new technology, colorways, and models. It seems as though in 2009, Nike will be highly concentrating their efforts toward reinventing the classic Nike Air Force 1 (One) model with new colorways and technology. We have seen numerous previews of colorways set to release in ’09 and they have all seemed to be highly accepted by sneakerheads worldwide. This colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 set to release in 2009 yields a clean and simple colorway of black and gray. Though it may look like a simple leather AF1 at first look, this pair features an elephant print embossed gray toebox which is better noticed under fully-lighted conditions. Other key aspects of this sneaker include a black leather upper, a black outsole, and a gray midsole. You can expect to see these at your local Nike retailers on January 3rd, 2009. Via Footlocker.
