NIKELAB AIR FORCE 1 HIGH X Riccardo Tisci BLACK/UNIVERSITY RED WHITE AQ3366-001
The basketball-inspired NikeLab Air Force 1 High x RT Men's Shoe pays homage to the hardwood's elite athletes. The all-leather upper features OG patterning, while a retro-style ankle strap lends flair to your look.
Designer Riccardo Tisci leaves his mark on the iconic silhouette with a large star panel behind the leather Swoosh. A signature RT and Swoosh embroidered patch sits on the forefoot, while his initials adorn the midsole.
The drop-in leather sockliner and heel Air unit make for a fit that's both comfortable and luxurious.
AIR FORCE 1 ORIGINS
This once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the U.S. President. In 1982, it was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood, to the blacktop, to the core of hip-hop culture. Today, the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning, but the Nike Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
