Not sure how it came about, but Riccardo Tisci is throwing down three Air Forces in a tag team of epic designer proportions with Nike. The price tag for the Givenchy Art Director’s latest effort are equally opulent but still not as high priced as some other fugly designer sneakers we’ve all seen. Tisci took a hands on approach to the quartet of shoes in his upcoming drop, utilizing different materials and patterns to give each shoe its own character. Tones of yellow, orange, blue and black are common in all four kicks.
The Air Force One Lows stayed true to the original shape, but the rest of the collection got an overhaul. The Lows are priced at $230, the mids at $260, the highs at $320, and the”boots” at $340. Lovers of the Kobe 9 will definitely like the highs. Not sure about how the actual mids look, but the highs are more like mega-highs. The swoosh is at a crazy angle too, but the real WTF pair are obviously the athletic equestrian boots monstrosity. Suffice it to say you won’t see many people rocking these outside of the usual Instagram brag.
The pack definitely won’t suit everyone, but that’s pretty much the essence of designer fashion in general. We’re just happy that the collection is relatively affordable for those who are interested. We were expecting $600-$1000, which isn’t cheap by any means, but given the going rate for some Jordans at market value, not completely out of reach.
The Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Force One collection releases in March.
