The Italian designer has designed an exclusive range of high luxe sneakers for Nike, available in a limited edition from March.
After collaborations with Parisian brand A.P.C. and British department store Liberty London, Nike has now teamed up with Givenchy's creative director Riccardo Tisci, for a covetable capsule collection. Drawing inspiration from streetwear, a big theme in his Givenchy Fall/Winter 2014-2015 menswear collection, the designer revisited the American sportswear brand's iconic Nike Air Force 1 sneaker model. The legendary shoe comes in four versions: low, mid or hi-top, and a knee-high style, featuring wide straps in vibrant colors for a tribal feel. The unisex appeal of Nike Air Force 1 has made it a feature on feet worldwide, including those of Riccardo Tisci himself, as he recently revealed to Vogue US that he owns more than 100 identical pairs of the sneaker. The four new models will be available in white first, sold in selected stores and on nikelab.com, and then in a black version from April 1.
