Jordan and Dior and now Nike and Louis Vuitton, the blend between designer and streetwear continue to fuse together with an upcoming Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 collection.
Virgil Abloh’s attachment to Nike and Jordan makes it a whole lot easier but a snag of Louis Vuitton is a big deal and will likely be a huge collection sought after throughout the entire globe. Unlike the 50 pairs of Off-White x Nike Dunk Low’s Virgil will be going lesser with the Air Force 1 collection with a handful of pairs being revealed in a variety of different colors, shades, and materials across the Air Force 1 Low and Mid.
Calling for leather designs of durable luxurious tumbled leather and patent leather, with debossed monogram prints throughout each pair, each arrives in a new fresh colorway calling for brown, green, red, purple, and yellow. Offset tongues wrap up onto the ankles with “AIR” written on the rubber midsoles. In Louis Vuitton’s show notes, they stated, “For Spring-Summer 2022, Virgil Abloh collaborates with Nike on bespoke Air Force 1s, fusing the trainer’s classic codes with the insignia and materials of Louis Vuitton in homage to the hip-hop culture that shaped him.”
