Hey there Pretty Birds,
It’s the new collaboration that everybody has been talking about (and, maybe, expecting). Nike has teamed up with Riccardo Tisci for a limited collection of Air Force 1, the most iconic basketball shoe ever.
For the collaboration, the italian designer came up with 4 models: an Air Force 1 Lo and an Air Force 1 Mid, and 2 new completely new models, Air Force1 Hi and Air Force1 Boot. All shoes have strong vivid multicolor stripes, are designed for “contemporary tribes” and celebrate the urban edginess of street culture.
Tisci, an Italian based in Paris with a strong love for American culture, has always been fascinated by how different people wear this shoe around the world: “Air Force 1 is not specific to one gender, city, or style. Air Force 1 is democratic. It’s love“, he says.
The models will be available starting from March 2014 in selected Nike stores worldwide.
