NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HIGH WEEK

Classics Revisited continues to touch on the Nike Air Force 1 High for the week, this time with a look at one of the most significant sneaker collaborations in the history of the ‘sneakerhead era’ done by a true legend in the game – Josh ‘Stash’ Franklin. We’ve focused on another one of Stash’s Nike Air Force 1 works before, but before he transferred the BW-born sublime ‘blue’ colorway, he delved into his personal life by revealing this unique story of the spray nozzle head; Stash rich history in the graffiti/street-art scene was retold in this grey/white graphic print on the upper comprised of a wild scattering of nozzles.

The Stash x Nike Air Force 1 High was limited to just 1,000 pairs and distributed in three cities – New York City, London, and Tokyo. NYC and London received just 250 pairs each, while Tokyo had a larger crop of 500. In addition, each regional release was distinct from one another, as each city featured a different colored suitcase box with matching colors on the outsole graphic seen through the translucent sole. What makes the Stash x Nike Air Force 1 High much more interesting is that this collaboration was ‘Retro’ed’ in a sense, as a limited run of 231 pairs were made available in late 2007 during the Nike Air Force 1 25th Anniversary celebration. Stash is duly credited as a true pioneer of the sneaker-led madness of the early 2000’s, with the ‘spray nozzle’ Air Force 1 Highs being just one of his many ground-breaking partnerships with Nike. More of this classic below, so take a look and stay tuned for more high-top Force treasures tomorrow!
