Nike is continuing its longtime Air Force 1 and Off-White collaboration with a new Mid Varsity sneaker release.
More from Footwear News
This month, the athletic giant has launched its latest shoe drop with the late Virgil Abloh’s fashion brand. The duo’s resulting release, the Air Force 1 Mid Varsity Maize c/o Off-White, features the signature $205 style’s mid-top uppers with rounded toes — complete with a two-toned palette of stark white and golden yellow, inspired by Air Force 1’s retro roots in the I-95 corridor.
The pair, notably made to celebrate 40 years of Nike’s Air Force 1 sneaker, include a paneled leather silhouette with woven front laces and perforated toes. However, this style has been overlaid with crossed Flywire cords and hook-and-loop ankle straps for a customized fit with a utilitarian edge.

The style is complete with stitched detailing around its staple Nike Swoosh logos, as well as Off-White’s reaper emblem embroidered on each heel.
The shoe’s additional accents include Off-White’s signature black printed lettering on its interior sides, as well as a zip-tied tag that’s become a signature of the collaboration. The pair’s final edge comes from its rubber base — curvy white midsoles and spiked outsoles, finishing the set with a sharp flair.
Previously, Air Force 1 released several collaborative Off-White shoes this year — including the Mid Varsity in pine green, black and graffiti-accented colorways, as well as multiple hues of the Air Force 1 Low sneakers.
Air Force 1’s Mid Varsity Maize c/o Off-White sneakers are now available at Off-White stores and Farfetch, as well as various retailers.
