In-Hand Look at All Eight Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 F&F Colourways
The late, great Virgil Abloh's fingerprints are all over Louis Vuitton's culture-shifting Air Force 1 colab with Nike – a beautiful, yet poignant reminder of his ability to seamlessly merge worlds and draw in influences. In true Abloh style, the LV AF1s have had many a viral moment over the course of their rollout, some of the most notable of which are the eight different colourways that were given out to Abloh's friends and family.
Ranging from bright neon yellow to regal purple and murky black, the pairs have been trickling out across the Instagram accounts of Abloh's close confidants in recent weeks, and now, we've got a look at all eight pairs in one place thanks to @elliotcox, a junior footwear designer at Louis Vuitton who also teased the brand's LVSK8 and Hi 8 in recent weeks.
Arriving in purple, orange, red, royal blue, sky blue, green, yellow and black, each pair in the octet features a debossed Damier pattern across the entirety of its upper, contrasting white Swooshes with small green hangtags and Off-White style stitching, and asymmetrical tongue tags. Abloh's signature Helvetica branding can be seen on the laces and the two-tone midsoles, reading 'LACELET' and 'AIR', respectively.
Don't expect to be able to get your hands on a pair of these Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 Lows, as they were seeded to an extremely limited group of individuals. However, you can feast your eyes on all eight above.
