Drake's Nike Air Force 1 'Certified Lover Boy' is Reportedly Cancelled
If you were hoping for Drake's 'Certified Lover Boy' Nike Air Force 1 to finally drop, don't get your hopes up, because according to online sources @sneakerhistory and @sockjig, it could well and truly be a thing of the past.
The 'CLB' AF-1 first leaked in July last year, a taste of what was to come with his now released studio album Certified Lover Boy. It wasn't hard to forget about these Uptowns, mainly because it was so easy to get lost in all of the (unnecessary) hype and drama that enveloped the album. And then there was that whole going head to head with Kanye West's Donda part. In saying that, the 'Triple White' mock-up did feature some rather aesthetic features. For example, it did look to be crafted from premium tumbled leather, and of course the ‘AIR’ text had been replaced with distinct cursive font which read: ‘Love You Forever’.
As per the above mentioned sources, the detail that allegedly derailed the project was the all-over hearts on the soles, which had taken the place of the AF-1's iconic stars. However, the design could also be cancelled due to the fact that it was supposed to release with Drizzy's 2021 album. Don't you think they could have made the perfect Valentine's Day release?
