Nike Air Force 1 Inspired By Classic Spike Lee Commercials Coming Soon

A very special general release is headed to retailers later this year; one that takes design cues from none other than the legendary film director Spike Lee. Using the “Live Together, Play Together” advertisements Lee made for the Nike Air Raid 2 back in 1992 as its key reference, the Nike Air Force 1 Low pictured below is full of clever details. The shoe uses a black/white color scheme as its base and adds a multi-colored embroidered emblem on the lateral side of the toebox that mimics the colorful basketball court in Lee’s ads. Elsewhere on the heel, we see these same colors implemented in an abstract collage with “Nike Air” embroidered in the middle and a shaggy suede panel just underneath. Extra stitching in bright yellow thread appears on the toebox and tongue like the beloved Union x Air Jordan collaborations and the collage motif is implemented once more on the tongue tag with green piping acting as a final bit of flair to the tongue. Expect these Air Force 1 Lows to hit select retailers later this year.
