THE NIKELAB AIR FORCE 1 HIGH X RT
AN ALL-CONQUERING ATTITUDE
As always, Riccardo Tisci knows how to leave a mark. For his latest collaboration with Nike, the renowned designer created a capsule collection called Victorious Minotaurs and reimagined the basketball-inspired NikeLab Air Force 1 High x RT men's shoe which pay homage to the hardwood's elite athletes. For the apparel, Tisci imagined a fictitious new squad, borne from his obsession with hardwood heritage, outfitted in luxe staples including an Oxford shirt, track pants and a varsity jacket, all adorned with distinctive and eye-catching details that mix sports, streets and style.
The most distinctive trait of the kick in tonal-stitched premium leather is a large star behind the leather Swoosh followed by a signature RT and Swoosh embroidered patch on the forefoot and Tisci’s initials on the midsole. A retro-style ankle strap adds the perfect finishing touch. The Air Force One was named after the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. An icon since 1982, it continues to cement its status from the hardwood to hip-hop culture while staying true to its roots with soft and springy cushioning.
