First Look: Lil Yachty x Air Force 1

Lil Yachty Air Force 1 0

Update November 15th, 2023: Lil Yachty’s upcoming Air Force 1 Low collaboration has surfaced in first-look imagery.

Lil Yachty may be well within his rights to be self-appointed as the rap industry’s biggest sneakerhead. Having shown off his vastly expansive sneaker closet(s) on a number of occasions, the two-time Grammy nominee is taking one step closer to cementing his top status with a reported Nike Air Force 1 collaboration in the works.

As Yachty walked through the aisles of Cool Kicks LA, he picked up Travis Scott’s recent AF1 Low “Utopia” and mentioned that he has his own version of the iconic circa 1982 silhouette on the way. While Darnell Boat quickly swerved any and all follow-ups knowing he had already shared too much, it was later revealed that Yachty has been pushing to collaborate on his own shoe for seven years.

The Atlanta-born artist previously signed with Reebok as a brand ambassador in 2017 but as of recently, Yachty has been sporting swoosh-exclusive footwear; from snacking on a box of Fruity Pebbles at the Nike World Basketball Festival in NYC to recently showing off a pair of the CPFM x Nike Flea 2 alongside the Nike ACG Air Pumori Snowboard Boots.

In the midst of November, Yachty revealed a first look at his upcoming collaboration via the Close Friends feature on his Instagram. Showing off the upcoming collaboration while at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, the low top trim bears a supple tumbled white leather upper with dark navy contrasts that adorn the tread and inner lining. Shout outs to his Concrete Boys label are found throughout the box and along the heel overlay’s stickman figure while Yachty’s signature adlib “It’s Us” adorns both the cobranded tongue tabs and photo blue insoles.

The Lil Yachty x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Concrete Boys” is currently expected to release in 2024. Could there be a potential initial drop at ComplexCon? Stay tuned for future details.
