#1 Lunar Force 1/Acronym ‘17 by Errolson Hugh - available from December 3

“At the beginning, when we first were approached by Nike to look at the Lunar Force 1, the first thing we asked ourselves was, 'Why should we do this? What could we possibly bring to the table that Nike doesn't already know how to do?’ In the end, we decided to approach it just like we approach the apparel, which means: Look at a problem, or look at an aspect of the functionality, and see if there's a way we can improve it." says Errolson Hugh, the Acronym founder.

 

 

#2 Air Force 1 ’07 Off-White by Virgil Abloh - available from November 4 (on Complex Con)

"I like to start with something established and then iterate on a process to edit it. What I love about the three Air Force 1s I’ve worked on with Nike, so far, they encompass one idea executed in three different ways", explains the Off-White founder.

 

#3 Air Force 1 Hi Just Don by Don “Don C” Crawley - available from December 1
