The clash between the world of luxury high fashion and sneakers reached an absolute peak in 2022. The likes of Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Prada have all teamed up with global sportswear brands to elevate the sneaker collaboration, but sneakerheads have referenced these expensive labels for decades.
This upcoming Air Force 1 Low release, colored in a cream sail, dark green, and red, can easily be compared to the signature colors of Italian fashion label Gucci. Although that brand is officially linked with adidas, it’s hard to deny the connection. In fact, this Gucci x Nike pairing was dreamed up on several occasions — most notably with DJ Clark Kent’s Nike Dunk High of 2009, a similar SB Dunk High of the same year, and the far more obvious Black Sheep SB Dunks.
