From the ground up

Over the weekend, NikeLab 1948 in London hosted an in-store drop of the Harlem-inspired VLONE x Nike Air Force 1, and Highsnobiety dispatched a video team so they could catch all the action in Shoreditch.

With lineups starting early in the morning, A$AP Bari himself was on hand to autograph pairs of the limited sneakers for those in attendance. Some fans were quick to lace up their fresh pairs in the streets, for our cameras to capture, while others kept their kicks box fresh, toting them off in special edition orange VLONE x Nike bags.

Rumor has it that the VLONE x Nike launch will be continuing in Los Angeles, so stay posted for more information, and make sure to check out our conversation with VLONE collaborator Andrea “FACE” Facelli.

Peep the event in full above, then dive into more original content from Highsnobiety’s YouTube channel below.
