Ric­cardo Tisci de­signs for Nike re­vealed

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STYLE -

THE givenchy cre­ative di­rec­tor has rein­ter­preted the clas­sic nike Air Force 1 shoe for the Amer­i­can sports­wear la­bel.

Ti­tled “Air Force 1 nike + R.T.”, the col­lec­tion fea­tures the bas­ket­ball and street-style sta­ple shoe (first re­leased by nike in 1982) which has been rein­ter­preted in white and black, and four dif­fer­ent shapes: the nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Lo, the nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Mid, the nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Hi and the nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Boot.

“The shoe is uni­ver­sal yet some­how very per­sonal. I travel all over the world, and I see peo­ple wear­ing the Air Force 1, and they wear it in so many dif­fer­ent ways. And so I was think­ing, what is the essence of the Air Force 1? And how do I take that essence and make my own state­ment?” ex­plained Tisci.

“For me, the Air Force 1 is not about gen­der, it’s not about a par­tic­u­lar city, nor is it about a cer­tain style. The com­mu­nity de­cides. It’s demo­cratic. It’s love,” con­tin­ued the de­signer.

The shoes are set to hit stores start­ing in March. — AFP Re­laxnews
