On the 9th of November, Nike will be releasing the Air Force 1 High Gore-Tex “Wheat” / “Flax” for $180 USD. If you’re like me and wondering what even Gore-Tex means and what does it have to do with Nike Air Force 1s, then here’s your answer.
Gore-Tex is a company that specializes in creating high-quality water-proof fabric. The fabric is lightweight, breathable, and most importantly – repels water. And to answer your question of what it has to do with Nike Air Force 1s – well I’d say that this is Nike’s attempt at entering a market niche where they do not have a strong standing – i.e. ” Boots “.
Companies like Caterpillar are well-renowned for their sturdy boots and this looks like Nike’s making an effort to steal some of that market away. And what better way to do that than pairing the Gore-Tex brand name with one of their most beloved silhouettes – The Nike Air Force 1.

This iteration of the Air Force 1 High Gore-Tex Boot is a nod to the arrival of autumn. The sneaker is beautifully crafted in rich brown leather that comprises the upper. A sleek rubber strap, on the tongue, offers the wearer a comfortable snug while a Nike swoosh is imprinted on the strap and as well as on the laterals.
Below the Nike swoosh, we can see the label of “Gore-Tex” etched into the sneaker, and on the in-sole, we see additional Gore-Tex branding. Lastly, the Nike Air Branding on the rubber outsole finishes up the design.
Nike Air Force 1 High Gore-Tex “Wheat” / “Flax” Boot – Where To Buy
The Nike Air Force 1 High Gore-Tex Wheat is a popular release for the month of November and I don’t expect stocks to last. You can purchase them on the 9th of November from Nike’s Webstore for $180.
Nike Air Force 1 High Gore-Tex “Wheat” / “Flax” Boot – Resale Price
As I said before, I don’t expect stocks to last and this is going to get sold out pretty fast. At this moment, the average resale price on StockX is roughly $303 with some resellers being able to cop $441 for a single pair. However, we see that the Bid and Ask prices are not in the $400 region, and therefore, we expect that the average resale price for the Nike Air Force 1 High Gore-Tex “Wheat” is $320-$340.
