An ode to
the force attitude
celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic Air Force 1, Slam Jam decided
to add history to this silhouette already full of stories.
sneaker brings us back to the mid-1980s when the Luca Benini (Founder of Slam
Jam) went to New York City where he directly felt the connection between Milan
and NYC. The story of ‘so different, so similar’ is coming from the energy we
can find in these two cities full of urban culture, spirit and originality but
expressed so differently over the years.
So here we
are now with the classic Triple White and Triple Black colorways but the design
changes making the AF1 looks tasteful and totally different.
the first things you will notice on the pair is the Slam Jam logo perf pattern
on the toe which makes it look like a seal of approval, which relates to the
storytelling of the collaboration, great idea ! Second thing would be the extra
eyelets and doubles laces which reminds us a bit of the Off-White collabs on
the Blazers and Dunks, so original !
details will be shown on the on feet pictures we will publish very soon so you
can feel the premium leather and the suede used on the Swoosh and heel. In the meantime, here's a focus on the shoe.
In terms of
launch, the Nike x Slam Jam AF1 will be available in white the 12.10 at Slam
Jam (raffle live here) and on 12.13 on SNKRS exclusive to Europe.
The black colorway is set to drop next month the 14th at Slam Jam and then Worldwide (SNKRS globally and selected retailers) the 17th.
