A combination of the classic Nike Air Force 1 and Special Field Boot. The Nike SF Air Force 1 Mid gets an NYC taxi-inspired colorway courtesy of Odell Beckham Jr. New York City has a few unmistakable symbols. Some are landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building, while others, from the humble hot dog cart to the yellow cab, represent the city’s unique culture and energy. And included in this is an athlete for each generation of New Yorker. For now, it’s Odell Beckham Jr.’s turn to hold that title.

Presented with the choice of forty different shoes, Odell Beckham Jr. quickly gravitated to the yellow SF AF-1 Mid, a sneaker as bodacious and eye catching as the receiver himself. It reminded Odell of the moment before his rookie year when he moved to New York City and looked down at the Manhattan streets for the first time. Accustomed to the sprawling bayous of Louisiana, OBJ was struck by the bright yellow color of taxi cabs snaking through the otherwise gray city. The latest SF AF-1 Mid colorway pays homage to Odell’s first “Welcome to New York” moment with a taxi-yellow colorway that stands out on the street, even from several stories up.
