After bringing their touch to the popular Dunk High in October 2020, Italian shop SLAM JAM is once again partnering with NIKE and participating in the 40th anniversary celebration of the iconic Air Force 1 by presenting us with their own reinterpretation.

Just like the collaborative Dunk High duo, the famous Air Force 1 High has been presented in 2 colorways and in a simple and timeless color palette of white and black. Each of the versions will have different release dates and modalities, one being more limited than the other.

For the design, Luca Benini, the founder of the Ferrara shop, explained that he was inspired by what he saw and heard in New York during his first trip in the 1980s.

As is often the case with the Italian designer, it’s all about the detail, the subtlety and the unexpected.

He presents us with a shoe with a simple and classic design that ‘hides’ careful details and appears as an ode to his concept « so different, so similar ».

Opting for a monochromatic look, this special Air Force 1 High consists of a smooth leather upper, white or black, complemented by matching overlays. The originality of the pair lies in the mesh side panels, the perforations on the toe box that form the Slam Jam « A » logo inverted, the suede side Swoosh and heel tab also in suede (instead of the usual leather) adorned with Nike Air branding on the reverse and the double lacing that combines classic flat laces with thin rope laces. These different elements appear in the titular color, white or black, and thus add subtlety to the design. The pair also benefits from a co-branded « SJ AF-1 » graphic insole and SLAM JAM branding very discreetly on the tongue. The whole is based on a sole of identical color to the upper.

The Slam Jam x Nike Air Force 1 High « White » will first be available at a price of 170€ ($175) via an open reservation list from November 29, 2022 to December 3, 2022 only in stores (without entering the draw) and distributed only in Italy. It will then be available more widely via a raffle set up from December 5 to 8, 2022 on the Italian store This collab will arrive on the Nike SNKRS app on December 12, 2022.

The « BLACK » version is expected on January 14, 2023 in stores and online, then on January 17 on Don’t sleep !
