Nike’s Air Force 1 has spent a lot of time in the limelight these last few years, and they’re not going away any time soon. This week, the Swoosh announced a new project with artist Lauren Halsey, who transforms the Air Force 1 High into a reflection of her art.
Nike’s string of artist collaborators in 2019 has been unparalleled. So far, the Swoosh has released dozens of projects this year, each giving someone with a unique perspective and background a chance to share themselves through footwear. The latest in these collaborators is artist Lauren Halsey, a Los Angeles native whose work revolves around class discrimination and the systemic oppression of both the LGBTQ and African-American communities. Halsey brings those same themes to the plate with her Nike project, which sees her using the Air Force 1 High ’07 as a canvas. Decked out in an all-black upper, the main body of the shoe is constructed from leather, with soft suede overlays for reinforcement. The outer heels feature Halsey’s price Instagram handle (@SUMMAEVERYTHANG), while the tongue labels preach the ideals of Neighborhood, Autonomy, and Pride. Mismatched green and crimson laces are used for a spot of color, while patent, 3M, and translucent options for the Swoosh and ankle strap complete the project.
