Nike & Riccardo Tisci join forces once again for their final instalment of their Air Force 1 collection. The “Vachetta Tan” Air Force 1 collection continues where they left off from their previous releases, the White & Black collections. They combine fusing high quality materials with Mr Tisci’s eye for details, resulting in a rare & unique collection.
The collection, once again consists of the same four AF1 silhouettes that dropped with the previous RT White & Black releases. The AF1 Low, Mid, the newly designed Hi & Women’s boot. The upper is decked out with the “Vachetta Tan” leather with a black textured leather Swoosh and smooth leather accents of black & shades of grey.
Vachetta leather is more commonly known to be used on handbags and luggage trimmings. The leather is untreated, which means it will age and darken in direct sunlight (known as Patina). Black waxed laces complete the sleek look of the shoe, which also come with a spare set of waxed laces. RT & Nike branding appears in silver on the tongue & insole. The collection also comes complete with a micro-perf mesh bag with the graphic of the Statue of Liberty as before, and also housed in a custom designed shoe box.
The AF1 Low SP sizes range from UK5.5 – UK12 (including half sizes ) priced at £195.
The AF1 Mid SP sizes range from UK5.5 – UK12 (including select half sizes) priced at £220.
The AF1 Hi SP sizes range from UK6 – UK12 (including select half sizes) priced at £270.
The WMNS AF1 Hi Boot SP will be available ONLINE ONLY with sizes ranging from UK5.5 – UK13 (UK5.5 is the only half size) priced at £290.
