Artists Reimagine John Elliott’s Nike Air Force 1

Designer John Elliott recently shared his upcomming collection/collaborations at NYFW. The talk of the show being his collaboration with Lexus, where he created custom tires inspired by his AF1 collaboration with Nike.

The John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1, used a layering technique to create the illusion of colour through shadows. During the event, they showcased a few artist’s interpretations of Elliott’s AF1. From externally wrapped socks, to dipping the shoe in cement, artists Yung Jake, Hassan Rahim, Actual Source and Matt McCormick each added their twist on the shoe.

You can see a couple of the interpretations below, for all of the shoes head to the Highsnobiety Sneakers IG.
