The Air Force 1 has become a serious staple in recent memory. Many, such as Billie Eilish, Drake’s NOCTA, Louis Vuitton, and Stüssy have collaborated with the classic kicks and offered their own spin on the AF1.
The constant collaborations and the behaviour of secondary markets that’s ensured the popular “Triple White” AF1s low price continues to rise, have all contributed to the humble AF1 now arguably being Nike‘s most globally cherished silhouette of all time.
The late Virgil Abloh was undoubtedly a big fan of the AF1. Both Louis Vuitton and Off-White have previously offered iterations of the classic silhouette with the latter getting ready to launch the monochromatic “Ghost Grey” AF1 trainers
The Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 “Ghost Grey” features the Off-White metallic Swoosh that decorates the smooth greyscale leather aesthetic upper.
After over six months of speculation, a variety of reports tells us that the latest Off-White AF1 may finally be hitting the market as early as this Spring.
However, reports also tells us that its rumoured that the new “Grey Ghost” silhouette may be exclusive to Paris. A city-exclusive release would mark a new strategy for the Off-White x Nike collaborations. Given Virgil’s close ties to the city, a Paris exclusive drop does make sense – which is unfortunate for us in the UK.
