London Creatives Design Bespoke 'FA Cup' Nike Air Force 1s

Manchester and Chelsea take the pitch this weekend to contest the FA Cup Final — the annual culmination of the world’s oldest national football club competition. To celebrate, the Football Association (FA) has called on the help of London creatives to design two pairs of bespoke Cup-inspired Nike Air Force 1s.

Radio presenter Rebecca Judd and artist Poet provided takes on the iconic silhouette, channelling their own FA Cup memories.  

‘I wanted them to look as close to the trainer form of the Emirates FA Cup as possible, from the silver Swoosh and grass printed soles to the past champions printed on the side panel to mirror those engraved on the Cup,’ says Poet.

In contrast, Judd’s take makes use of claret and blue pops — the colours of her beloved West Ham United.

The special limited edition bespoke FA Cup Nike Air Force 1s are part of the #CupCollective — an exclusive collection of art and fashion pieces.

Only ten pairs of each design will put into production, so your chances of copping are minimal. That being said, if you’re in the UK, be sure to check out Highsnobiety’s IG competition below.
