Nike Air Force 1 Low “Escape” Back After 20 Years

The early 2000s “Escape” color scheme is making a comeback. Earlier this year, we saw Nigo flaunting a pair of Air Force IIIs in this iconic colorway, and now, Nike is set to re-release this 2005 classic, two decades after its original launch.

Announced during their 2024/2025 showcase on SNKRS Live, the Air Force 1 Escape will be making a return as part of next year’s seasonal lineup. These legendary AF1s, featuring the same suede overlays and perforated toe-box as the original, continue Nike’s trend of reissuing fan favorites. This follows the recent retro release of the Linen Air Force 1s under Nike’s Cult Classics series.

The “Escape” colorway has a history dating back to 1988 when it debuted as one of the original colorways for the Air Force III. Unlike most versions that had the oversized “FORCE” logo on the tongue, there were two that featured an “ESCAPE” tag. Besides the brown pair (as shown by DeFY), there was also a black/grey/white version released in 1988.

In the early 2000s, the brown “Escape” colorway inspired various other shoes, including the Air Force 1 Low, Air Force II in 2003, Air Max 90, and Air Huarache.

As of now, there’s no confirmed release date for the Air Force 1 “Escape,” but they are anticipated to drop within the first three months of 2025.
