Nike and Virgil Abloh have managed to paralyze the sneaker scene several times with their designs. But now they're going one better. At the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer '22 Fashion Show, all the models wore Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1s. We are sure that some fans' legs got very weak. As always, all information is available here.
Virgil is a workaholic. IKEA , pocket book , ojas speaker, 50 Off White x Nike Dunks – to name just a few collaborations from the last few months – then of course he creates his Louis Vuitton SS22 and also the Louis Vuitton x Off-White x Nike Air Force 1. When the man sleeps is up to us not clear. But you have to work hard to be successful, unfortunately.
During the Louis Vuitton fashion show on June 24th in Paris, 21 pairs of Air Force 1s in the Luis Vuitton look were at the start. Including both Low and Mid Air Force 1. The designs are immediately recognizable as Virgil's: The Off White x Nike look can also be found in the collaboration. The usual Off White Helvetica lettering on the laces is French here: “LACET”. We already know the typical colors like “Canary Yellow” or green and purple. The models are quite diverse in terms of materials. We find the classic Damire pattern from LV on all colourways, sometimes on the high-quality Louis leather, sometimes on patent leather, sometimes on smooth leather. Other details are also very similar to the Off White designs: the “AIR” lettering or the small tabs under the Swoosh.
A total of 21 couples are expected. Unsurprisingly, Virgil Abloh has only just released 50 Dunks with Nike and has always come up with huge collections. The quality will be very good, similar to the Nike x Dior collaboration, and accordingly the prices will be more in the LV range. So if you have a normal sized wallet, you should definitely start saving now. If you even get the chance to snag a shoe.
RELEASE LIKELY SUMMER 2022
After the show, Virgil Abloh announced that he would soon reveal more details about the collection. Since it was an SS22 show, we will definitely have to wait until next year. Those who may have the Louis Vuitton Nike Air Force 1 will have to stay alert until then. As soon as there is more information about the release, you will find everything relevant in our release calendar and in our free app. If you don't have it yet, you should download it very quickly, so you really won't miss anything.
