Future made a rare outing this week for a lunch trip in Los Angeles and showed off his trending style on the way.

The “Life Is Good” rapper grabbed a meal at celeb-favorited Il Pastio yesterday, stepping out in a printed hoodie coated in images from abroad. He layered the standout top to bold star-coated jeans as he protected himself in a black Bentley Motors face mask.

When it came down to footwear, the Grammy Award-winning artist surprisingly opted for a wallet-friendly pair of kicks. The Nike Air Force 1 ’07 sneaker debuted in the 1980s and quickly became a cultural icon for classic style and flair. Formed with all-white leather uppers with a perforated toe, the design comes set atop a chunkier midsole with a signature Nike Air cushioning hidden underneath the Swoosh-accented style.

The sneaker in all its retro glory comes with an affordable price tag of $90 at Nike.com.

Nowadays, the Air Force 1 sneakers are having a moment amongst both celebrity style and Gen-Z trends. Influencers across Instagram and TikTok reverted to the style amidst the craziness of 2020 as a return to familiarity and stability in the form of a shoe. According to the NPD Group, the sneaker is currently the most purchased thus far for the yar.
