The Nike Air Force 1 Low EMB Continues Its Artful Approach In Blue

The Air Force 1 is one of several 70s and 80s silhouettes that are embedded into the history of basketball. Since 1982, the Air Force 1 has mightily served the sport — first on a performance standpoint and later on a lifestyle and fashion aspect that persists through the modern day. Since 2021, Nike’s EMB series has celebrated the crossover of hoops culture with a series of footwear releases inspired by signature patterns, materials, and motifs relating to the game. This Air Force 1 takes an artful approach by implementing a unique pattern on the interior motivated by the official lines of a basketball court.

Virgil Abloh's Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 Is Here

The designer Virgil Abloh was two years old when Nike first introduced the Air Force 1 sneaker, in 1982. During his lifetime, the shoe would go on to become a grail of the streetwear culture that Abloh eventually launched into the fashion industry stratosphere, and would also become the basis of one of the designer’s final projects before his death last November.

New York’s Favorite Shoe Gets the Virgil Abloh Luxury Treatment

It’s no secret that New Yorkers love their Nike Air Force 1’s. Against all odds, they manage to keep their pairs pristine — until they don’t, at which point they just add another to their collection. If you are one of the lucky few to get your hands on a pair of Virgil Abloh’s “Air Force 1’s,” though, which he designed as part of his spring 2022 collection for Louis Vuitton, where he served as the men’s artistic director up until his death in November, you may not want to wear them outside the house. Only 47 individual styles were made (in Italy, of course, at Vuitton’s factory), with just nine being sold to VIP clients. They range in price from $2,750 for low-tops to $3,450 for mid-tops. (An average AF1 pair costs $100.) But as one of Abloh’s final projects, they are priceless.

Louis Vuitton honors Virgil Abloh with a Nike Air Force 1 exhibition

As announced earlier this week, Louis Vuitton is honoring its late artistic director Virgil Abloh through an exhibit of his work. The space, known officially as Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by Virgil Abloh, focuses on its namesake by showcasing all 47 editions of the Air Force 1 imagined by Abloh. Creative conversations between the designer and Nike are also displayed among the final products of their collaboration.

Keep Your Forces Clean With The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Since ’82”

For the 40th Anniversary of the Air Force 1, Nike is recognizing the inner city tradition of carrying around toothbrushes for emergency cleanings. Long before the days of sneaker wipes and cleaners, shoe fanatics carried around toothbrushes to quickly scrub off any dirt or grime that made its way onto the soles and uppers after a trek around miles of city blocks. While modern methods might be more effective, there’s no matching the nostalgia that Nike is trying to produce with this special release.
