Drake NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 Certified Lover Boy

Drake dropped “Certified Lover Boy” album over a year ago and since that day everyone is waiting for the Air Force 1. But no sign of them during the whole year.
We only got the Nocta x Nike Hot Step Air Terra and one tease of the AF1 by the artist.
We heard about manufacturing issues on the “Love you forever” and the hearts but we don’t really know why it took so long, all the fans are dying waiting for these !
Anyway, here we are now with a confirmed date for this end of 2022.

At first sight, we just look at a standard Air Force 1 Triple White but in hand we actually notice some differences.
This is the strength of Nike when it comes to collaborate, they can take a simple and well known silhouette and make it special for the occasion. It can be obvious but also very subtle.
Talking about subtle things, the outsole around the heel and toe are usually stars and for this edition we have hearts. Nice touch isn’t it ?
Another detail we all saw when the first images leaked, the midsole. We usually have AIR written over there but this time we have “Love you forever” in a script font.
The “AIR” can be found inside the midsole though.

The main difference we notice at the upper of the shoe compared to the classic triple white is the texture.
Here we have a high quality tumbled leather. Everyone can notice the grain is more visible than on the classic AF1 and still very soft especially on the toe.
Inside the shoe you have white premium leather on the sock liner instead of standard mesh and the insole is in Cobalt Tint with Nocta and Nike logos.
For the laces we have two dubraes: the first one is at the bottom as a metal lock lace which is always good looking especially on white colorway.
The second one is a pack of bids in Cobalt Tint (written 0 to 9 and A to Z). If you want to use them be aware that there are no duplicates.
Last detail for the shoe would be the flat white laces with screw on metal aglets. A clean premium signature we all love.
On the heel we got the Nocta logo at the left pair and Nike Air logo at the right pair.

They will release in a special box in Cobalt Tint with “Love You Forever” written in gold and “In association with Nocta” under. Inside you see find the Nike Swoosh / Nocta logo paper.

The release page is up here with selected stockists releasing them online, make sure to follow us on Twitter in case of shock drops.
