NIKE AIR FORCE 1’07 QS Performance Review

The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Easter Egg,” a limited shoe from the Nike company this year, shows that it is full of originality and sincerity. And Nike has issued the AF1 “All Over” in the market in multiple colorways.

I guess that many of you are attracted by the shoe’s lovely appearance like me. The shoe body is made up of light yellow, pink, purple and green, which is very fresh and lovely. The multi-material splicing design and the use of high quality materials make the shoe very appealing. Having adapted Nike Air cushion, the shoe’s cushioning performance surely won’t fail us. Anyway, let’s go on checking.

The upper is mainly made of buff canvas and pink suede with fresh blue leather embellished. Besides that, another highlight of the shoe is that there is a egg design in the tongue, which is quite different from the other shoes. But after all, every sneaker has its somewhat unique design.

At the side, the grey Swoosh logo matching the fluorescent yellow leather is rather nice. The shoe is very pretty and from the side view, it gives us another feeling that it lives up to a fashionable title. However, there are a couple of users claiming that they did not like the chunky profile of the Air Force 1 07 QS. Anyway, this depends. There are various colors at the side and the super thick midsole, which looks very stable, and rubbery outsole cooperate with each other very well.

For the heel , it is wrapped in fresh light green leather and the pink suede is embroidered with Nike Air and logo.  It is said that most of the wearers loved the neck breaking look of the AF1 07 QS. Quite a nice compliment! In short, it is such a fashionable one that most buyers revealed that they could pair this with almost any casual attire, from strolling to the streets to chilling during a night out.

For the comfort which I think is the most important part of a shoe, it is, according to a large percentage of reviewers, super comfortable when they are wearing the shoes. But to tell you the truth, the initial feeling after wearing the shoe is that  the shoe wears hard with only a little softness. But on the other hand, it is rather soft compared with the other shoes at the present market. And the thick midsole has also limited flexibility.

The vamp is mainly made of the original fabric and suede, which guarantees some soft experiences for consumers. There is a sponge inside the shoe,  ensuring a nice  feeling for the foot.

Owing to the thick midsole, a single shoe weighs 479 grams, which a  users thought that it is a little bit heavy. But practically all AF 1 shoes are not lightweight and their weight are all within the normal weight range.

If asked what is the most satisfactory respect of the shoe, I would say the upper like most people because this pair is not only a very versatile kick, but also a very practical one and won’t trap too much sweat inside the shoe. Though it is a fact that fabric and suede uppers are more breathable than leather ones, we should not forget that the upper is also a chunky one that doesn’t work as well for air permeability, so your foot will feel noticeably muggy.

In terms of wrapping and support, unlike leather ones which are stiff, the upper of this pair can not provide a clear wrapping. A few reviewers have also noted about the roomy toebox. The soft fabrics and suede uppers with a sponge on the inside wraps more visibly than the AF 1.

For the support, the fabric uppers and suede are tough, thus providing good support. When doing high-intensive exercises you can see that the vamp deforms only a little, thus providing plenty of stability.

With respect to the traction, I’ve mentioned earlier that the shoe has a rather thick midsole and the outsole is not a thin layer as well.

It is the classic outsole pattern and the front and back sole have also ring raised patterns, thus offering a multi-angle and nice grip. It is simply a sneaker with  an exceptional grip. You can have a try in the flesh.

As for the cushioning, the shoe has equipped with  the Nike Air cushion that is known for providing excellent cushioning.

There is only a slight soft bounce when walking and the comfort feeling of the upper is not obvious.

But when you are running, the soft bounce of the sole is very prominent and you can feel the clear rebound from the sole on every landing step.

After all, the cushion setup it installs is the Nike Air cushion, so it won’t be so bad. Some said that for AF1 conservatives or pacesetters, this unique lifestyle kick is clearly a must-have, but I wan to tell you that for those who are seeking a neutral one which is excellent for both walking and combat in terms of cushioning, this one is a must-get.

For the size, you can choose  a bigger one than you are usually wearing. Some with wide footers feel it  is suitable whereas those with  thinner feet feel there is extra room inside the shoe.

Verdict:

What surges into my mind with respect to the shoe is “exceptional”. This shoe features a retro flavor with surefire eye-catching details. And there are some other colorways for you to choose. In short, the shoe is overall excellent and I just wan to give it a thumb up!
