Hold everything, Virgil Abloh has just given us the holy grail for spring/summer 2022. Last night, Louis Vuitton presented its men’s SS22 collection via an epic cinematic film starring cultural icons such as Goldie, GZA, Saul Williams, Issa Perica, Caleb Femi and more. But one runway reveal really made fans go wild: Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Nike on Air Force 1 sneakers.
The sneakers will come in 21 colourways—including ones with the house’s iconic Damier check and the LV Monogram canvas—and have been given Abloh’s signature stamp as well. The word “Air” has been emblazoned on the sole and the word “Lacet” (French for laces) on the shoelaces in the designer’s recognisable quotation marks. Another detail on the shoes to mark the collaboration is a neon green tag on the side of the shoe, a label with the Louis Vuitton name and the Nike swoosh on the tongue, WWD reports.
