To mark the 35th anniversary of the 1982’s Nike Air Force 1, Nike has tapped Virgil Abloh, Travis Scott, Don C, Kareem “Biggs” Burke and ACRONYM to partner for a high-profile collaboration dubbed the AF100 collection.

“There is no other shoe that connects to sport, music, fashion, art, the street and the city all at the same time,” said Nike sportswear senior and lead designer of the shoe, Al Baik. “The most ubiquitous Air Force 1 is the white-white. For the 35th anniversary, we selected collaborators who are impacting future generations across culture. Their brief was filtered through the white-white lens.”

For Virgil Abloh, he reimagines the Air Force 1 ’07 by including the brand’s silver Swoosh sign with the words “Off-White for Nike” behind the logo. Abloh‘s version will only be available at ComplexCon in Long Beach on November 4.

As for the rest of the collaborators, Travis Scott is up for Air Force 1 Low (December 2) with a Velcro Swoosh sign and removable patches, while Don C takes on the Air Force 1 Hi (December 1) with different details¬†inspired from the Air Force 2 and Air Force 3. Finally, Kareem “Biggs” Burke added his Roc-A-Fella logo into the 2004 version of Air Force 1 (November 30) and Errolson Hugh of ACRONYM (December 3) included a zipper while improving the functionality of the Lunar Force 1 shoe.
