Model: Air Force 1 High
Key Features: ALYX delivers its elevated take on the Air Force 1 high in two black colorways. Crafted from premium tumbled leather the collaboration includes an all-black iteration and another black option with a white Swoosh. Both sneakers feature ALYX's signature anodized aluminum buckle for closure on the front, as well as 1017 ALYX 9SM stenciled in gold on the lateral heel, and an embroidered Nike swoosh on the back.
Release Date: October 24
Buy: 1017 ALYX 9SM web store and Nike SNKRS app
Editor’s Notes: This release brings 1017 ALYX 9SM's street goth aesthetic to one of the most iconic sneaker silhouettes. Matthew Williams' refined take on the legendary design marries minimalist touches with tactical suave. ALYX’s avant-garde design language is immediately evident in the form of the signature rollercoaster buckle and minimalist branding.
Williams teased the luxurious high-tops ahead of 1017 ALYX 9SM‘s FW20 runway show at Paris Fashion week last January. Of course, the designer is no stranger to working with Nike, as he’s created everything from co-branded apparel collections to Vapor Street Flyknits. However, this marks a new, less tech-focused lane of collaboration for the two partners.
