Editor’s Pick: The AF-100 Celebrates the Enduring Legacy of White Air Force 1s
To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Air Force 1, Nike has collaborated with visionaries from around the world in celebration of the shoe’s defining colorway, white-white.
Senior Creative Director Nike Sportswear, Lead Designer Al Baik kicked off the project…
“There is no other shoe that connects to sport, music, fashion, art, the street and the city all at the same time. The most ubiquitous Air Force 1 is the white-white. For the 35th anniversary, we selected collaborators who are impacting future generations across culture. Their brief was filtered through the white-white lens. The design brief was to remain classic and recognizable to the Air Force 1 while connecting to each collaborator’s life personally and the fields they represent.”
In the end, Don C, Kareem “Biggs” Burke,Errolson Hugh, Travis Scott and Virgil Abloh all offered their distinct view of the icon.
