Graffiti artist and native New Yorker Eric Haze has a new collaboration with NikeLab. Rumors of a collaboration were going around because of a tweet from Nike a few days ago, and it turns it out they were real. Today, January 30th, marks the release of the Haze X NikeLab Air Force 1 and they are available exclusively at NikeLab’s 21 Mercer location in New York City.
Using a back to basics approach the kicks' overall motif is an always classic black and white color combo. The all-black upper is made from tumbled leather. The tongue, laces, heel tab, and swoosh contrast the upper's black motif with white. The heel tab houses the Haze logo -- an asterisk -- and the inner lining features a white base with black graffiti which from afar resembles an elephant print. The sole of the shoes look like traditional Air Force 1s, but Haze adds his trademark black arrow to the thick all white sole with Nike’s logotype.
