Virgil Abloh brings the Nike Air Force 1 to Louis Vuitton


It takes two, explain Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock, for things to go smoothly and become invisible. “It takes two” is also an apt mantra for the sneaker industry, as brands have embarked on collaborative nirvana. More precisely, the hit song from 1988 is also the source code for the latest batch of sneakers from Louis Vuitton’s male artistic director, Virgil Abloh: 21 pairs of Air Force 1 made in partnership between Nike and the French house). Last week at the Louis Vuitton Spring / Summer 2022 men’s show, Abloh launched nearly two dozen Swooshed and LV monogrammed sneakers in green, white, metallic blue, lemon yellow, red and even the iconic “Damier” of Vuitton. have StockX build additional servers in preparation.

The shoes are very long in coming and a full time for the crop and Abloh, according to the notes that came with the show. Abloh provides a new list of concepts and definitions each season, presented in the same way your biology textbook defines protons and xylem. This season, the Air Force 1 is defined as “one of the most successful shoes ever created,” according to the notes. But Abloh is particularly interested in the version of the Air Force 1 that appears on the cover of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s single, the one that has been customized so that the Nike Swoosh is covered with the Louis Vuitton monogram. “The cover epitomized the initial practice of the hip-hop community of combining high fashion and athletic wear, setting aside divergent brands with equal respect.” Now Abloh is making that 1988 bootleg official. (There are some classic Abloh touches on the Air Vuitton 1s: where Abloh usually prints “LACETS” on … the laces, here they have the French translation: “LACET.”)
