John Elliott’s Nike Air Force 1 Low Release is Almost Here

First shown back in November at the second annual ComplexCon in Long Beach, California, John Elliott’s exclusive Air Force 1 Low has been in the news back and forth as reports of a retail release continue to circulate. Much of the speculation, though, is due to the menswear designer himself who persists in teasing images of the shoe far beyond its origins as one part of Nike’s AF100 exhibition.

Just yesterday Elliott’s IG posed more imagery of the dimensionally savvy shoe which is produced in a white-on-white canvas. Reduced lines mark for subtle yet masterful layering — a term often used when defining how to best wear Elliott’s apparel collection.

So when exactly will the John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1 Low release? Only time will tell. But given the nature of the pictures that continue to surface, our thoughts are very soon or not at all. The former is hopeful.

Update 10/5: After long wait, John Elliott’s Nike Air Force 1 Low will finally release on October 18. Pricing details have not been announced.

Joey Hamilton Gives Tie Dye Update To Travis Scott Nike Air Force 1

words // Nick DePaula: 

When the Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low launched earlier this August, the multiple Swoosh options and open canvas canvas upper immediately fueled customizers to try their hand at adding their own updates atop the iconic model.

Portland-based creative Joey Hamilton recently worked up a custom trio of his own, coming up with green, orange and purple-based tie dye takes on the AF1, each framed by the existing sail hued piping lines of the upper.

Check out the updates in detail below, with mismatched Swooshes also accenting the upper. You can keep up with Joey’s work on his @JoeyHamilton and @Prime.Experiments Instagram pages.

Nike SB Air Force 2 Low Returns with “Escape” Vibes

When Supreme dropped a collection of Air Force 2 Lows we should’ve been smart enough to know there was more from that silo on the way.

While 2 Pac vs. Biggie pairs may feel like a slight reach, this “Escape” referencing release gets it right. Donning the same shades from the famous pack as seen on the Air Force III, this Nike SB Air Force 2 Low release is both unexpected and awesome.

Hearty hues of brown balance out a white upper and black branding, with the best surprise coming in the SB tagging that warrants Zoom Air cushioning. Yes, please.

Pairs are available now for a reasonable $ 95 at Renarts.

Nike Air Metal Force // Throwback Thursday

More Air. More Attitude.

Welcome to this newest edition of Nice Kicks’ Throwback Thursday. Today’s post is inspired by the NCAA basketball tournament and another underrated Nike basketball sneaker from the classic 90s era which made an appearance both on the NBA hardwood and the NCAA tournament: the 1997 Nike Air Metal Force.

Weighing 18.2 ounces offered at an original retail price of $ 130, the Air Metal Force was made to withstand the punishment in the paint, not inflict pain or punishment on your wallet. Successor to the Air Adjust Force and Air Modify Force, the Air Metal Force stayed true to its Air Max and Force basketball heritage.

An aggressive-looking model, the Air Metal Force provided a secure, tight, lock-down fit around the heel and ankle tighter than a vault door at Fort Knox. Featuring a dual-pressure visible Max2 heel and encapsulated forefoot air sole units, a thick, full-grain leather upper, Phylon midsole, and removable FitWrap technology, the Metal Force offered maximum protection, comfort, and durability.

Worn by NBA players Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley, and Arvydas Sabonis, as well as college players Vince Carter during his playing days at UNC and Raef LaFrentz at Kansas, the Air Metal Force released in both TB (mid) and high versions to meet individual player and team needs, the latter version which featured custom player sample tagging.

Along with the help of marketing firm Wieden and Kennedy, and creative designer Kevin Drew Davis, Nike launched an aggressive and successful ad campaign called Product Assault where select models including the Air Metal Force were depicted along with a URL on print ads which were then mailed to customers for an interactive experience with the product. Each product used in the ad campaign had a crazy domain name and referenced the sponsoring athlete’s unique ability. One ad featured the Metal Force Mid in the black/white-metallic silver colorway along with a tribute to Alonzo Mourning.

The ad campaign was truly innovative and revolutionary as it redefined and changed consumerism from a passive to active interaction. Now, over 20 years after its original release, this late 90s silhouette has remained locked within the Nike archives, likely never to see a retro release as most basketball sneakers today have shifted to lighter materials and construction, and employ lower-profile Zoom Air cushioning.

So, be like VC, Ewing, Oakley, Raef, and Sabonis aka The Original Unicorn, and lace up your pair of the Air Metal Force.

Try not to let Zo bang on you.

In celebration of its anniversary, we’ve seen the AF1 in full force (pun intended) throughout the culture.

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.
