Update 11/21: South Central LA artist Lauren Halsey will release her own Air Force 1 High which is part of Nike’s ‘All For 1’ line. It uses the same colors and familiar designs that can be seen around the city of LA.
The shoe remixes the Triple Black High into an ode to Los Angeles, celebrating the ones who cultivate community through creativity. Inspired by colors, familiar typographic design and iconic posters plastered around the city, Halsey’s collection is a visual and tangible tale of South Central LA. The shoe’s tongue tag is woven in with block text true to posters seen across the city for decades, its sockliner has a collage of South LA storefronts and it features dubrae with hand-lettered screen printing in font similar to Halsey’s Hieroglyph Crenshaw Project — a public installation of hieroglyphic carvings that allows communities in South Central LA to author their own stories.
The Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Los Angeles’ will release at select retailers in LA and Nike.com on December 7th.
