Nike has dropped a new Force is Female capsule with actress, model, DJ, and recording artist Ruby Rose and it’s so fab!
The newest collection, comprised of the Force is Female Air Force 1 and SF AF-1, comes in Port Wine patent leather variations with dark rubberized teal accents and a light neutral midsole, and the Black Patent, which highlights reflective silver hits.
The sockliners inside the new styles has a series of uplifting and inspiring quotes which are two of Rose’s personal mantras.
One reads, “Become Your Own Hero,” while another is emblazoned, ”With Full Force,” both a reminder of the potential realized when one embraces inner strength.
“What’s so magic about acting is the really vulnerable yet powerful action of continually testing and pushing yourself,” says Rose. “Those moments that are challenging, those that are new and exciting, they are the gems.” They might feel like harder work than playing it safe, but you end up with a strong feeling of accomplishment.”
Rose, who says she much prefers martial arts to dancing, has engaged in everything from death-defying stunts to singing in public, while the latter makes her “feel that I’m failing at everything miserably.”
“To be well-rounded, you need to dive into things that you don’t necessarily feel competent in and learn those skills,” she says, which brings us back to her mantras.
The color and material treatments are also seen in this season’s Nike Blazer Low in Black Patent (P5,295), Nike Cortez Classic (P4,795), and Nike AF1 in Black Patent (P5,295) in select Nike stores, Urban Athletics, The Athlete’s Foot, Titan, and Capital.
