The Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1s by far the most highly anticipated sneaker debuts this year and for good reason. The Nike Air Force 1 by Virgil Abloh will be available in 9 colorways. In the end, there will be 21 colorways available in various Louis Vuitton retail stores.

Specifically, the Air Force 1 Low will be available in 7 makeups while the Air Force 1 Mid will be available in 2 versions. The Air Force 1 Low is expected to retail at $2,750 while the Air Force 1 Mid can be accessed for $3,450.

Fans were allowed to purchase the sneakers online. However, there were rules that had to be followed. For instance, customers looking to purchase the sneakers were placed in a virtual waiting room that gave customers access to opportunities to purchase a pair. Once selected, a customer was given 10 minutes to add their chosen style to the cart and checkout.

As one of Nike’s most recognizable models, the Air Force 1’s has become a lasting cultural standard. The sneakers enjoy continued relevance in not just the fashion industry, but also in music and art.

Why Virgil Abloh?

Iconic fashion designer passed away at 41 after battling a rare type of cancer known as cardiac angiosarcoma, which he had been dealing with since 2019. One of the most creative designers, Abloh was praised for bringing street fashion to the catwalk.


He reimagined the duties and responsibilities of a fashion designer, successfully linking streetwear, music, as well as high fashion. Apart from redefining modern fashion as we understand it, he also made history when he was appointed the first black creative director of Louis Vuitton.

Abloh’s friendship and partnership with rapper and designer Kanye West catapulted him into the greatest heights in the luxury fashion industry, first by introducing his label Off-White and then becoming the creative director of one of the most enduring fashion houses in the world.

Abloh was diagnosed with this rare cancer just a few months after he was appointed as head of men’s wear but that did not stop him from taking the Lois Vuitton brand to greater heights. Indeed, Virgil Abloh was one of the greatest designers and visionaries that the world has ever seen.
