News: Nike collaborates with Riccardo Tisci

FORCE OF NATURE. Like a fairy godfather, Riccardo Tisci waved his magic wand and transformed what could be deemed as humdrum gym footwear to highly covetable fashion items.


Following Givenchy’s basketball-themed spring/summer 2014 men’s show, Tisci announced his collaboration with sports megabrand Nike. The result of the said amalgamation is otherworldly prototypes of Nike’s iconic Air Force 1 in four variations: low, mid and hi-top with an additional knee-high model. The collection packs more colors than was expected; yet the vibrancy of the hues lends the idiomatic footwear a cool, street-wear vibe. The white model was released on March 1, while the black version is available from April 1.
