Nike is getting more experimental with the Nike Air Force 1 Low as the classic Bruce Kilgore design looks towards spring. After its “Equality” BHM release earlier today, this upcoming colorway sees its sartorial enhancement not at the heel but on the iconic Swoosh.

The Air Force 1 has been revered as one of the best in the game for its minimalistic style, comfort and its attractiveness. In celebration of its anniversary, we’ve seen the AF1 in full force (pun intended) throughout the culture. From old models being brought back from the Nike vault, to newer members of the Force Family, the Force has been strong in 2017.

Customizer Bespoke IND went in for his newest pair of customs for the one and only French Montana and his brother. To commemorate French and his Ciroc bottle selling out almost immediately, Bespoke IND gifted the rapper with a luxurious Air Force 1 “French Vanilla” custom. If you’re familiar with Bespoke’s work, you know he array of high end materials that go into each pair making them one of a kind every time.

By combining vintage Japanese Kimono and Obi silks, Moroccan Djellaba fabrics and leathers and suedes to really top it off, these customs go above and beyond the norm. For French’s pair, to really give that Ciroc “French Vanilla” vibe, the tongues and heel tabs were hand wrapped silk domes to reflect that classic Ciroc emblem.

Take a look at these one of a kind AF1s below and be sure to follow that artists behind these masterpieces here. Are you feeling these? Would you like to see Nike do something similar to this? Let us know in the comments below.

John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Friends and Family” to Debut at ComplexCon

Not that long ago, John Elliott was writing letters to Nike in hopes of one day designing sneakers for the brand. Fast forward to years later and Nike is asking him to do just that. Following the success of his Nike Vandal collaboration, Nike asked John to produce an Air Force 1 in honor of the shoe’s 35th anniversary. The offer, though, came with a stipulation.

John was tasked to re-imagine the shoe using its traditional white-on-white canvas. No other color was allowed. Thus, his approach to the shoe was by aesthetically altering its dimensions. He smartly reduced layers in an effort to evoke shadow, doubling up the overlays and cutting the Swoosh out of the foxing and replacing it with pebbled leather underneath. Other subtle details like the reduced eyelets and double layered tongue add depth and presence to the classic design.

This John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1 Low will be available only to friends and family at ComplexCon this weekend.

FINALLY…Beyond excited to share these!!! About a year ago, we had the opportunity to work on the 35th anniversary project for what is in my opinion the most iconic shoe ever, the @nike Air Force 1. There was one stipulation: it had to be all white. When tasked with working on such a culturally significant silhouette under the restriction of keeping it in an all white palette, I wanted to make sure that we included our DNA in the silhouette and tried to craft details that could potentially create color. To me the only way to do that was by adding and reducing layers to create shadows. Since this shoe is so rare lets run through some of what makes it special: Each overlay is doubled up to add dimension. We die-cut the swoosh out of the foxing and quarter and put pebbled leather underneath to create the appearance of it going inward and to create shadows. We took this layering theme and applied it to the smallest details – everything from a layered deubré, double lace keepers, layered aglets, and a double (layered) tongue. We then reduced small details like eyelets and vents down to a bead size. The finished product is something that I am excited to own and share with friends and family members this weekend at ComplexCon. [email protected]

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.

*Note the image below shows the 2000 original pair.
