It made sense that Nike Sportswear would hook up with Dover Street Market as part of the London Olympic celebration, but it might have been too much to handle with these dropping along with all the other heat in recent weeks.

If any pairs are left, they’ll be made available online later during the weekend, so click through to get a look at this pristine white leather deconstructed Air Force 1 Low and let us know if you’ll add the Dover Street Market collabo to your AF1-XXX collection.
