Latest Pickup: Nike Air Force 1 "Fur Tongue"

Over the last four decades, the popular and classic Nike Air Force 1 has evolved from a sporty functional sneaker to a cultural icon around the world. Although the design created by Bruce Kilgore is undoubtedly a great foundation that has become a true lifestyle model for everyday life, it is the countless and massive colourways of the sneaker that have considerably propelled the primitive sneaker forward.

The seasonal iterations particularly inspire sneakerheads again and again. The Beaverton-based brand always releases huge iterations to suit spring, summer, autumn, or winter, which in turn prepare or accompany us for the current season. In autumn 2020, we can also expect a matching Nike Air Force 1 that perfectly fits the theme.

While reflective elements were rather the daily business for the AF1 in 2019, warm updates with fake fur are now the new standard for 2020. But the best way to see the new Nike Air Force 1 for yourself is to check out the pictures.


As with previous versions, the upcoming sneaker focuses on classic and solid colour blocking. The Nike Air Force 1 "Fur Tongue" has a traditional white base. The side panels, toe box, and heel inserts remain colourless and offer the spotlight for the rest of the elements.

The beige inserts underline the elegant style. The rear area, the eyestays, and the robust mudguard have a darker shade, while the overall package remains neutral. But it seems that Nike does not want to do without the contrasting colours completely. The "Nike Air" branding on the heels and the print on the insoles accentuate the "Life Lime".

But if we are being honest, we all just can't help but look at the furry and warm tongue. The entire tongue is made of fake fur and gives the shoe an elegant look. It's perfect for a casual style in the evening!


Don't be surprised with the unboxing when you order the sneakers. The Nike Air Force 1 "Fur Tongue" comes standard with double laces by Nike. They're actually a really good idea and also a fierce style, if only the laces were not exaggeratedly long at 2,50 meters!

We couldn't do anything with the XXL laces, and so we took them out. But Nike aims for a "casual style" (e.g., to tie them around the trousers or the leg). Don't hestitate to message us, if you can create a great look and it doesn't look like bondage.

Technical Highlights

We can't explain it either, but the leather on the Nike Air Force 1 "Fur Tongue" feels very smooth and of high quality. It also gives you the traditional AF1 style with the high durability and a very good grip.

But what would a Nike Air Force 1 be without the comfortable Air cushioning? The lightweight sole was originally designed for basketball and gives you the ultimate all-day comfort. Additionally, the shoe collar is padded on the sides with a thick lining.

Conclusion on the Nike Air Force 1 "Fur Tongue"

Autumn can now finally come. With the Nike Air Force 1 "Fur Tongue", you do not only get a warm sneaker but also a stylish Air Force 1 with fake fur (even without the 2,50-meter laces). The release is on October 24th.
