We’ve been seeing lots of new Nike shoes today, but very few are created solely for the women fans. Fortunately, the NIKE WMNS AIR FORCE 1 MID proves that Nike hasn’t forgotten the ladies as they churn out this beautifully pink sneaker just in time for the summer season. Officially dubbed as “Bright Melon”, this suede might sound overly vibrant, but it actually carries a clean look that should go with practically any summer outing.

Color: Bright Melon/Metallic Gold Star-Sail
Style and Design
The pink hue of the kicks is of the kind that is great for the eyes. There is not much color variances used with the shoes as Nike opted to utilize the same shade, depth, and texture for the uppers. The only different portions are splashes of the Nike icon in the form of the silver Swoosh along the quarter panel and the Nike logo on the tongue. From the back, you can see the same Nike Air logo, this one embossed onto the material so that it follows the same basic pink coloring. The vamp is perforated and a layering approach was made for the kicks so that there is a bit of depth added into the shoes.
One drawback though – the laces follow the same winter melon coloring. While some buyers might see this as a good thing, it’s always a little tough to have shoes with unique colored laces. This means you can’t easily replace them if they got lost or worn down at some point. Hopefully, there will be extra laces available – or perhaps the shoes will still work with a white-colored lace?
Aside from the lace, there is also a wide strap along the top portion for that much needed cinch to keep the shoes tight along the top. The strap seems to be held together with Velcro and a stylish gold buckle which helps set off the whole design.
The soles are wide and done in plain white coloring without any grooves or markers to make it stand out. The outsole however is made in a brownish color with just the right grooves to allow for an excellent grip.
Price and Release
The kicks are priced at a lower cost than the typical Nike shoes at just $105 with a release that is scheduled any day now. There is no specific date for when they become available, but press release for the shoes mention how they will be gracing the shelves of selected Nike stores soon. Hopefully, this means within the month of May.
