To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Air Force 1, Nike partners with aesthetic visionaries from across the creative industries and around the world in celebration of the shoe’s defining colorway, white-white. Working in close partnership with Al Baik – Nike Senior Creative Director – the AF-100 project set out to explore and pay homage to one of the world’s most iconic sneaker silhouettes of all time.
Following Roc-A-Fella’s Kareem “Biggs” Burke’s iteration of the classic AF-1 Low silhouette; designer Don C’s celebration of the Force lineage with the AF-1 Hi; and Acronym’s Errolson Hugh’s reinvention of the Lunar Force 1, global rap sensation Travis Scott completes the project with his version of the AF-1 Low. Setting out to create a version of the AF-1 which reflected the atmosphere Scott likes to create during his shows, the team explored ways to take the shoe’s classic details on a trip. The result is a canvas upper which reflects under light adding a sense of depth and dimension to the sneaker. The shoe also comes with three velcro articulations of the classic Swoosh allowing the wearing to mix and max versions of the iconic logo depending on their mood. The Nike AF-100: Air Force 1 Low/Travis Scott will launch at selected retailers such as END. on December 3.
