You may have heard ASAP Bari’s streetwear brand VLONE being shouted out by the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, ASAP Rocky, and more in recent records. If you haven’t, you’ll definitely hear about their collaboration with Nike to celebrate the silhouette’s 35th birthday.
For a brand new fashion label to ink an official project with Nike is unheard of. However, it has been a long time coming as Harlem is the home of the Air Force 1 and ASAP Mob. The shoe is such a staple in New York, it has been nicknamed “Uptowns” for decades.
The sneakers feature premium tumbled leather throughout the uppers with a mostly black upper and vibrant orange accents finished off with waxed laces. VLONE branding is found on the tongue and heel tabs. While a release date is still unclear, Nike does look to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the AF1 with special projects. Grab an exclusive detailed look at the VLONE x Nike Air Force 1 below.
