The time has finally come. Virgil Abloh's Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 odyssey is set to culminate across nine color palettes. What began last year with Abloh first being spotted in the LV x AF1 during the summer at the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2022 men's show, the course of the silhouette shifted when the beloved designer unfortunately passed in November (2021) – with proceeds of the 200 auctioned Damier x Monogram printed silhouettes benefitting his "Post Modern" Scholarship Fund back in January resulting in $25,326,900 being generated. Meticulously handcrafted in the Maison’s atelier in Fiesso d’Artico, Italy; this rendition of the AF1 takes a higher form of luxury as Bruce Kilgore's initial design celebrates its 40th anniversary in grand fashion. Both the Air Force 1 Low and Air Force 1 Mid will be available to the public via "online exclusive" access at Louis Vuitton. With a price range of $2,750 and $3,450 for both iterations respectively.
Release is scheduled for Tuesday, July 19th. Best to be on your toes for this launch and be prepared to empty the wallet.
