Over the course of Nike’s history, we have seen the Beaverton, Oregon-based sportswear giant span its reach across the globe with Japan being one of the regions that have birthed some of the most iconic and unique collaborative efforts. This is thanks to the likes of fragment design who was founded and still ran by one of Japan’s most influential designers, Hiroshi Fujiwara. Following years of projects together, including the infamous Travis Scott x fragment x Air Jordan 1 High and an upcoming three-way collab with CLOT on the Dunk Low, Fujiawara took to Instagram to tease a possible new collaboration with a sample pair of a collaborative Nike Air Force 1 Low.
Seen here in a two-tone white and black build, the silhouette appears to be utilizing high-quality tumbled leather in white throughout its mudguard, toebox, eyestays, and heel overlay while black canvas accents along the quarter panel, Swoosh, and heel tab. Tonal white laces and a plastic AF1-branded lace dubrae match the tongue and sockliner and even without a detailed look at other portions of the sneaker, expect to see some form of co-branding details either on the tongue tag, insole, or back on the heel. Rounding out the design is the white-on-white midsole and outsole combo.
The Hiroshi Fujiwara x Nike Air Force 1 Low sample may see a release in 2023, though at this time exact details surrounding this possible collaboration are still a mystery. Take a look at the teaser photo below and keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app to stay updated on the pairs possible release and more in the sneaker and streetwear world.
