Update: A previous draft of this post claimed that this was a collaboration between Rochambeau and NikeLab, but i turns out that Nike instead enlisted the fashion imprint to help unveil the model at a recent runway show. The photos pictured here are general NikeLab Air Force 1 High Tech Craft colorways.
Nike is going all out for NYFW, as they’ve enlisted a who’s who of top designers to reinvent Bruce Kilgore’s iconic basketball silhouette and forever lifestyle staple, the Air Force 1. From VLONE to ACRONYM and back again, today we get a look at yet another luxurious takeover in the form of the Nike Air Force 1 High Tech Craft, recently unveiled during Rochambeau’s recent runway show.
The New York City menswear label is the first to introduce the new Nike Air Force 1 tooling, as the NikeLab helmed creation was first revealed during their recent runway show. Known officially as the NikeLab AF1 Tech Craft CMFT, the focus here is on the premium materials, as a smooth leather comes in Black for men’s sizes and a simple off-white Sail shade for women’s. Two different Jacquard-like woven toolings appear on the respective toeboxes, as a herringbone aesthetic adorns the white women’s option and a bolstered Kevlar-esque woven material hits the men’s. The ankle straps are noticeably thinner too, while new ventilated perforations land on the side panels. A deconstructed ankle collar hides a more supportive inner-bootie.
Do note that this isn’t a collaboration between Rochambeau, but rather an official unveiling with the help of the respected New York City fashion imprint. Both Nike Air Force 1 High Tech Craft pairs are slated to release as soon as February 16th at select retailers.
