From the ground up

Last month the much-anticipated Nike x Riccardo Tisci Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 collection was launched globally at select retailers with an online release having followed about a week ago. Now the brand and the Givenchy creative director are getting ready to launch the second part of their first collaborative project – the Black Air Force 1 Collection. The drop consists of the same four styles, just what was white before, will be black this time around – Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Lo, Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Mid, Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Hi, and the Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 Boot. Also they will release a black version of this T-shirt with the second drop. The first release was more athletic and the second release will be a little more subtle and dressed up, one could say. An exact release date has not been communicated yet by Nike, but the sneakers will release at the same retailers as the first drop, as well as, in the first week of May.
