Up Close with the PSNY Air Force 1

Date: November 30 2017

Nike and PSNY announced at the start of the month that they'll be schooling us in the art of the Air Force 1. When we first reported on the release, we'd been led to believe that this deconstructed AF-1 High was a ComplexCon exclusive. 

However, a sample model of PSNY's latest colab with the Swoosh has begun to circulate, lending weight to rumours of a retail release. Images of the sample reveal a closer look at some of the sneaker's key features. 

It's time for students of PSNY to put on their thinking hats. Do those exposed zigzag stitches, unfixed eyestays, and that bold capitalised font on the heel strap ring any bells? 

If you're getting some serious Virgil Abloh vibes from this deconstructed white Nike, congratulations: you've passed today's pop quiz. The shoe's detached panelling is strikingly similar to what've seen of the recently leaked Off-White x Air Jordan 1

Is this a case of swagger jacking, or has the Swoosh developed a 'house style' that they're encouraging collaborators to adopt? Nike's rendezvous with Abloh has certainly proven that deconstructed kicks are a hit with the kids. Whether PSNY has enough force behind them to sell out a stack of 'half-finished' shoes remains to be seen, but we're backing them in.

No release date has been set for this model. While the ankle strap informs us that the PSNY x Nike Air Force 1 High is the 'PROPERTY OF PSNY NOT FOR RESALE' (the caps lock strikes again!), we're doubting PSNY will hold onto these models for too much longer. We'll let you know if and when this AF-1 ever graduates from Nike's hallowed halls.
