As a means of saying thank you for his commitment to diversity and inclusion, as well as his long-standing relationship with the brand, Nike has awarded Sir Elton John a one-of-a-kind Nike Air Force 1 PE.
Dubbed “Jet,” the sneaker boasts an overall 1970s feels paying homage to the early days of disco and the relationship between Elton and Nike. The chrome effect featured on the shoe in turn acts as a nod to John’s knighthood, while the upper draws inspiration from a British Knight’s armor and a disco ball. The Forces are then capped off with Nike BETRUE color inspiration and graphics.
Elton John’s relationship with Nike began in the mid-70s when Geoff Hollister designed several shoes for the iconic musician.
