A Rox Browne Nike Air Force 1 Jester SurfacesRelease: 12 December 2018
Earlier this month we got wind that Rox Brown — influencer, stylist and brand consultant — got herself a Nike collaboration. An Air Jordan 1 surfaced in early December, and now we see that she will also release an NYC-inspired Air Force 1 Jester. Just like her AJ1, this AF-1 Jester features an all-black leather upper, plus signature rose branding on the heel. The already modified shoe gets reinterpreted with dropped and diagonal Swooshes, as well as a silver outlined one above.

When I was asked what I wanted to do as far as campaign to promote the NATIONAL release (12/12/2018) of my NYC edition Rox Brown Air Jordan 1 Rox Brown Air Force 1 & Rox Brown x Nike capsule collection I wasn’t sure how to approach it. I didn’t want to show a glamorous video or photo because the road leading to this moment has not been glamorous. I’m also not here to “INFLUENCE” you to buy this capsule (even though I want you to) Instead I wanted to INSPIRE, so I bought the Nike team to my childhood neighborhoods. I didn’t have the best childhood, my mom practiced medicine all over the West Indies but when we came here her education wasn’t recognized and we had to start from scratch. My mom worked so many jobs sometimes I wouldn’t even see her. I was bullied as a kid, I struggled with my health and still suffer from a blood disorder that requires transfusions and can be so intense that sometimes I can barely get out of bed. I’ve never said a word or complained about it because it’s not an excuse. By the time I got to high school my mom was practicing medicine again and managed to send me to college FULLY PAID w no student loans. She was the perfect example of hard work. People told me I could never get to where I am today, too many odds stacked against me but here I am 🙋🏽♀️. I say that to say this.... no matter where you’re from or the circumstances you can do ANYTHING. You can do EVERYTHING. Hey ma! Those sneakers we couldn’t afford when I was 9... I got my own now ! Everyone will tell you can’t do it until you do.... so JUST DO IT 🌹 🇯🇲
These will be available on December 12 alongside her Air Jordan 1 and apparel — including leggings and a long sleeve tee.
