In Paris back in 2021, Louis Vuitton revealed a wide assortment of Nike Air Force 1s, all designed by the late and beloved Virgil Abloh. Part of the Off-White founder’s last efforts at the luxury house, the collaboration saw Bruce Kilgore’s creation rebuilt from the ground up, dressed in iconic LV fabrics, patterns, and colors. F&F make-ups were then shared back in February of this year ahead of the monogram colorway’s limited 200-piece drop through Sotheby’s.
Three months thereafter and Louis Vuitton is preparing retail iterations of their Air Force 1, which is confirmed to drop in both low-top and mid-top models. Relative to its shorter counterpart, the latter proffers a slim selection: alongside a “Triple White” option, there will be a Damier-constructed build whose side is defaced with a graffiti-styled print.
The eight Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 Lows can be separated and categorized into three unique styles. “Triple Black” and “Triple White” belong to the most simple, with the LV monogram subtly debossed into every panel. Next, pops of blue, red, and green adorn a separate trio, their palettes and color blocking similar to previously-released LV Trainers. Finally, two metallic sets round out the collection: silvers mark the toe of a busier, multi-color base, while gold covers the entire upper of the alternative.
