Nike’s Special Forces Boot may feel too militaristic for some, but they may have found a way to ease you into it. They’ve blended the utilitarian model with the Air Force 1 for a model that is perfect for the those style wars you might engage in.

The Nike SFAF-1 is a built up Nike Air Force 1 with an elongated ankle and overly rugged build. Ballistic nylon and tumbled leather sit beneath a pile of ankle straps that wrap around D-ring lace loops. A gum outsole serves as the finisher on this model, which was original spotted on display at a Nike exhibit in Shanghai.

You’ll be able to pick up the Nike SFAF-1 in October at select Nike retail locations.
