Tiffany & Co. shook up the internet on January 24 by revealing a Nike Air Force 1 Low collaboration. What spectators didn’t know at the time, however, was that the iconic American institution had also worked on a “Friends & Family” version of the pair – that was, until today.
The “F&F” edition of Tiffany’s Air Force 1 favors a high-quality leather, abandoning the nubuck found on retail versions. Furthermore, the upper is covered in the luxury label’s signature Pantone 1837, making some netizens wish they could buy the “Friends & Family” style instead. Starkly contrasting black lands on and around the tongue, as well as the logos on the sides and upper heel. Below, the made-for-basketball sole unit keeps things on-brand with its white midsole and Tiffany Blue® outsole.
Other details found with the exclusive Air Force 1 include an inverted color arrangement to the pair’s shoe box. Silver ornamentation appears on the spine, and may be accompanied by other silver accessories for those close to the brands. In any case, the “F&F” take on Tiffany’s Nike project makes a bolder statement than versions for retail.
Enjoy a closer look at the shoes ahead, while you try your luck on the made-for-the-public style on March 7 via the SNKRS app.
