The big occasion going down in the month of February is Valentine’s Day, a holiday where couples both new and old will send each other some romantic gifts with the 2021 All-Star Game canceled (despite the NBA exploring some last-minute options) (or when lonely singles can fill that void with a fresh delivery). You may already have spotted Air Force 1, Valentine’s Day, Featuring an all-white upper with a gushing red heart with a pendant-style border on the heel, a simple execution. This AF1 is a little different because the pink suede and a bright red leather Swoosh take on a much more literal colorway, but what sets these apart is the special tongue mark that serves as a love letter to arguably the greatest Nike shoe ever made.
By releasing the button, you can literally open up the tongue, showing “True Love Since ’82” on the right shoe and a pink heart with a Swoosh on the right. On the Valentine’s Day Air Max 90 that was announced a few weeks ago, the same detail can be seen, but nothing ever shoots an arrow into the heart like the AF1 does.
A definite release date has yet to be announced, but a drop in February seems like a safe bet that prevents any further postponements. So the question is, do you prefer the other Nike Valentine’s Day AF1s over these?
