Virgil Abloh sent the fashion world into a frenzy with the reveal of the Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 at the LV men’s SS22 show last June. Those closest to the late designer have begun to receive their F&F pairs, which may indicate that an official public release is coming soon.
These pairs of the LV x Nike Air Force 1 all come in low-top form and are dressed in leather debossed with the LV monogram pattern. An orange colorway has been revealed by the likes of Lucien Clarke, Bakar, and Ibn Jasper, while Colette founder Sarah Andelman received a royal blue pair. Other colorways include yellow as revealed by Tremaine Emory, University Blue as revealed by A$AP Bari, purple as revealed by Atiba Jefferson, black as revealed by Samuel Ross, a red pair revealed by Don C, and green as revealed by Zack Bia.
Each of these pairs feature a white, stitched-on Swooshes and other various design motifs that Virgil applied to his Off-White x Nike collabs. Packaging for these pairs include a white dust bag and a cardboard box with debossed LV monogram pattern. On the outside of the boxes we see a brown Louis Vuitton x Nike tag that is attached to a white Swoosh-shaped loop.
The Louis Vuitton men’s FW22 show is going down in Paris this Thursday, January 20th, at 8am ET, which may include more LV x Nike Air Force 1 reveals. You can stream the show on Youtube here. Check out the early pairs below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
Update: These colorways have been confirmed to be F&F-exclusive. The first public launch will be a brown Monogram/Damier colorway limited to 200 pairs. See that pair here.
