In Paris back in 2021, Louis Vuitton revealed a wide assortment of Nike Air Force 1s, all designed by the late and beloved Virgil Abloh. Part of the Off-White founder's last efforts at the luxury Maison, the collaboration saw Bruce Kilgore's creation rebuilt from the ground up, dressed in iconic LV fabrics, patterns, and colours. Friends & Family make-ups were then shared back in February 2022 as celebrities received their pairs ahead of the Damier Monogram colourway's limited 200-piece drop through Sotheby's. The Nike Air Force 1, celebrating its 40th year, was designed in 1982 and is one of the most successful and iconic shoes ever created. On the occasion of the Louis Vuitton Men's Spring-Summer 2022 runway show, Virgil Abloh collaborated with Nike to design 47 pairs of bespoke Air Force 1s, fusing the sneakers classic codes with the insignia and materials of Louis Vuitton in homage to the hip-hop culture that shaped him. The sneakers were made with materials employed in Abloh's Louis Vuitton men's collections, and styled with his signature quotation marks, echoing the written graphics Abloh often used in his work. The individual styles designed for the show were made by Louis Vuitton in its shoe manufacture in Fiesso d'Artico, Italy. A total of 200 pairs were made available for this auction in an exclusive colourway and in a range of sizes. The sneakers, entirely made in premium Italian leather, are embellished with Louis Vuitton's emblematic Monogram and Damier patterns with natural cowhide piping. Each pair was sold with an exclusive Louis Vuitton pilot case, also from the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2022 collection, which was reinterpreted from the Maison's archive in an iconic orange colourway and made of Monogram Taurillon Leather. The pilot case features Louis Vuitton's classic S lock closure in white metal finishing and includes a luggage tag in the shape of the Nike Swoosh. The pilot case adapts to every shoe size, based on an internal cushion system. Louis Vuitton's proceeds from the sale will benefit The Virgil Abloh Post-Modern Scholarship Fund, which in partnership with the Fashion Scholarship Fund, supports the education of academically promising students of Black, African American, or African descent. The fit is true to other Nike Air Force 1 models.
