Nike is looking to build more energy around its iconic Air Force 1, this time reminding people of its custom Bespoke program for the shoe. It's done so by letting singer/songwriter Bryson Tiller come up with his own take on the sneaker.
Tiller used the opportunity to make an Air Force 1 inspired by his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky and Muhammad Ali, a fellow native of the city. Unfortunately while Nike describes the shoe in detail in a story on its SNKRS page—university red leather, custom tongue tags, boxing glove detailing, etc.—it doesn't actually show off the finished product.
Tiller said in the piece that he wore Air Force 1s regularly growing up.
"I wore a uniform to school, so the white-on-white or black-on-black Air Force 1 Low was the simple sneaker to wear, but it was the standard. You were cool if you had on a pair of Air Force 1s," explained Tiller.
It's important to note that this isn't a proper collab on the Nike Air Force 1, but more of a next-level NIKEiD design documented by the brand.
