Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Force 1 RT Sneaker Collection Release Date 2014
The rumors are true. The Creative Director of high-fashion brand Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, has revealed a sneak peek on his instagram account of his upcoming sneaker collaboration with Nike Sportswear. With a unique mix of Riccardo Tisci’s design and Nike’s athletic aesthetics comes forward the special edition Nike Air Force 1 RT sneaker collection.
Riccardo Tisci is no stranger when it comes to sneakers. The classic Nike Air Force 1s have been seen on his feet countless times, and even his Givenchy sneakers were inspired by them. Now is the time for Riccardo Tisci to make his own statement on the iconic shoes.
The collection consists of 4 models, the classic Nike Air Force 1 Low, Mid, High and an all-new knee-high sneakerboot for women. The shoes feature a white base with a black leather tongue and eyestays and multicoloured accents throughout. The knee-high version has an extension in black leather and laces.
The Nike Air Force 1 RT sneakers sort of have a retro 70s vibe to it with the vibrant color combination of orange, brown, yellow, grey and blue colors on the heel and strap. If you look closer, you will see that the devil is in the details with these shoes as Riccardo Tisci went all out.
The shoes feature a cracked brown leather Swoosh, leather inner lining, waxed laces, special AIR RT branding on the sole, and a new perforation design on the toebox. The premium materials used on the classic silhouette offers a more luxurious look and feel.
The Nike Air Force 1 RT are unique to say the least. With the premium materials used, you will get the luxury at an affordable price. You can expect a limited release that will sell out very fast, so start planning if you’re thinking of copping.
