Virgil Abloh unveiled a dozen pairs of the Louis Vuitton x Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low at the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring 2022 runway show in Paris on June 24, 2021.
Unlike “The 50” Off-White x Nike Dunk Low styles, this Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 collaboration includes both the mid and low-top renditions of the iconic silhouette dressed in rich hues of Green, Blue, and Brown, along with a few White pairs.
Each Nike Air Force 1 Low feature offset tongue tags with Louis Vuitton branding, flipped-out tags behind the Swoosh, “AIR” on the midsoles, and added verbiage on the laces. This line will also include Louis Vuitton luggage equipped with Nike’s signature emblem tag atop the bags.
“A cultural symbol in its own right, today the Nike Air Force 1 serves as an objet d’art emblematic of self-generated subcultural provenance,” Vuitton said in its show notes, even referencing “hacking” in place of collaboration. “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.”
