Roc-A-Fella x Nike Air Force 1 Set to Retro in 2017

If you were a fan of Roc-A-Fella records, you knew white/white Air Force 1’s were synonymous with the label, its artists, as well as owners Jay-Z, Dame Dash, and Biggs. So much so, the crew was known for wearing their “uptowns” just once before donating them and buying a new crispy pair. In 2000, Nike paid respects and together designed a highly coveted AF1 for the influential record label with its logo embroidered on the heel and featured on the tongue tab. Thirteen years later, a retro is finally on the way.

Set to launch during ComplexCon to celebrate the 35th anniversary of AF1, Nice Kicks can confirm the Roc-A-Fella x Nike Air Force 1 2017 retro will be identical to its original make. The colorway will be white/white, logos on the heel, tongue, and insole. Quantities will be limited.

Timing couldn’t be more perfect as Jay-Z recently released his 13th studio album entitled 4:44 and fans are desperately begging for a Roc-A-Fella reunion tour. Could this retro sneaker be a clue as to what’s to come in the future? We can only hope.

Founded in 1995 by Jay-Z, Dame Dash, and Biggs, Roc-A-Fella records started as a place to house the album Reasonable Doubt as a result of other major labels turning it down. The Roc would eventually become powerhouse in music, fashion, and culture with a roster that included stars Cam’ron, The Diplomats, Kanye West, Freeway, Young Gunz, & Beanie Sigel.
