Nike builds on the momentum of its highly-praised efforts with Off-White, serving up an Air Force 1 themed set of collaborations that sees the return of Off-White and Virgil Abloh and adds in respected tastemakers including Acronym designer Errolson Hugh, Don “Don C” Crawley, Travis Scott plus Kareem “Biggs” Burke repping for Roc-a-Fella.
Check out the shoes below plus launch dates and design details as explained by Nike Nike Sportswear head creative, Al Baik.
Air Force 1 ’07 Off White by Virgil Abloh: November 4th (only available at Complex Con)
“The shoe is authentic and important to all of these collaborators, and we were open to the possibility of pushing the design further. Above anything, we see some amazing stories coming to life through all of these silhouettes.”
Air Force 1 ’08 Roc-a-Fella by Kareem “Biggs” Burke: November 30th
“A classic in the world of sneaker culture, the shoe pays homage to the Air Force 1’s roots in New York City. The design is specifically inspired by the OG.”
Air Force 1 Hi Just Don by Don “Don C” Crawley: December 1st
“We worked together to decide where elements of the Air Force 1, 2 and 3 could be incorporated. The medial side of the shoe was taken from the Air Force 2 and the heel from the Air Force 3. It all rolls together nicely while still staying true to the classic Air Force 1 look.
Air Force 1 Low Travis Scott by Travis Scott: December 2nd
“When we first met with Travis, the first thing he said was, ‘I’m the acid of rap.’ It was a prompt to take a classic but then really trip it out. We brought this idea to life by making the binding around the canvas reflective, so when it hits light, it reflects various colors.
Lunar Force 1 Acronym ’17 by Errolson Hugh: December 3rd
“Errolson approached the shoe’s functionality and wanted to take the design to a new place. Staying true to the iconic white-white lens, he pushed the design radically forward with his interpretation.”
