Announced recently by Ricardo Tisci himself, the collaborative effort between the Givenchy designer and Nike has an official luanch date of March 1st. Themed around the brand’s Air Force 1 silhouette, the collections speaks to Tisci’s own affinity for the iconic basket ball trainer :
“The shoe is universal yet somehow very personal. I travel all over the world, and I see people wearing the Air Force 1, and they wear it in so many different ways. And so I was thinking, what is the essence of the Air Force 1? And how do I take that essence and make my own statement? For me the Air Force 1 is not about gender, it’s not about a particular city, nor is it about a certain style. The community decides. It’s democratic. It’s love.”
Officially called the “Nike R.T. Air Force 1” pack, it includes the Nike R.T. Air Force 1 Lo, Nike R.T. Air Force 1 Mid, Nike R.T. Air Force 1 Hi and the Nike R.T. Air Force 1 boot and be available globally at select retailers and on Nikelab.com. All styles will be available in white starting March 1st and in black on April 1st.
