With a proper release finally slated for this weekend, John Elliott has offered a closer look at his Air Force 1 collaboration with Nike. The all-white look was originally introduced last year as a Friends and Family exclusive at ComplexCon and uses a layered design language throughout to put a subtle spin on the classic design.
'The John Elliott take on the iconic Nike Air Force 1 uses layers to create the illusion of colour through shadows, giving a new dimension to the all white silhouette,' explains Elliott's site. 'Each overlay is doubled and raised, with the Swoosh die-cut revealing pebbled leather. This layering technique is applied to each foundational detail — an embossed deubré, double lace keepers, cascading lace tips, and overlapping tongues. Eyelets and vents are reduced to a bead size.'
Enjoy a closer look at the colab above and mark your calendars: Elliott's low-top AF-1 will be available on October 13, exclusively from johnelliott.co.
