“Now don’t nothing get the hype on first site like, white on whites,” – Nelly on Air Force Ones
It was 15 years ago when Nelly uttered that rhyme but it is true. Nothing has or ever will replace the buzz that surrounds a fresh pair of white-on-whites. So much so the colorway continues to be a staple of the summer each and every year. Nike celebrates the white-on-white lineage with a series of Air Force 1 releases curated by some of the most notable names in all of the industry. The initial concept came from the mind of Senior Creative Director Nike Sportswear, Lead Designer Al Baik… and features the creative brain trust of Don C, Kareem “Biggs” Burke, Errolson Hugh, Travis Scott and Virgil Abloh. Each of whom put their own spin on the classic silhouette and colorway.
Releasing in increments throughout the upcoming months, the launch dates are as follows:
Air Force 1 ’07 Off White: November 4th (only available at Complex Con)
Air Force 1 ’07 Roc-A-Fella: November 30th
Air Force 1 Hi Just Don: December 1st
Air Force 1 Low Travis Scott: December 2nd
Lunar Force 1/Acronym ’17: December 3rd
