Lil Yachty Channels Nigo, Reveals Friends & Family Air Force 1 For Coachella

Not long after his performance out in the Californian desert for Coachella, Lil Yachty dropped a first look at a Friends & Family iteration of his upcoming Air Force 1 collaboration with Nike. Going heavy on the patent leathers, the design could be viewed as an homage to A Bathing Ape founder Nigo as he emulates the Japanese icon in an infamous photo with a super-rare Bape Sta.

This particular iteration of the Lil Yachty Air Force 1 for the Concrete Boys is a time portal back to the mid-2000s when the Bape Sta was amidst its heyday. Loud pops of color and glossy exteriors match the rapper’s exuberant style and personality, more so than the retail versions that opt for a simple white leather and navy accents.

Lil Yachty also shared a look at several different colorways of his Air Force 1, including a white/yellow, black/purple, and black/red. This newest batch sticks with the standard leather exterior with sport mesh interior, complete with the embroidered Concrete Boys logo on the heel and the “IT’S US” on the tongue.

As it stands, a release date of the Nike Air Force 1 by Lil Yachty remains unknown, although a late Summer 2024 release seems likely given the uptick in activity.
