John Elliott’s take on the Nike Air Force 1 for last year’s ComplexCon is a study in ‘less is more’. Adding subtle detailing and reducing layers for a shadow effect, the designer’s take also included updated material, dubraes and lace aglets.
The uber-limited drop was one of the more sought-after releases of the event, leaving those who weren’t ‘friends and family’ with a juicy L. However, if Elliott’s recent Instagram activity is anything to go by, there’s still a glimmer of hope.
Elliot has been sharing fresh shots of the colab. The timing and frequency of the posts suggests that he wants to keep sneakerheads interested — perhaps dangling the carrot for an upcoming release?
There have been murmurs of a drop later in the year, but no official word. You can check out the shots below and make up your own mind.
