Nike Air Force Ones have been around for decades and we’ve seen them produced in a variety of different colorways and silhouettes. There have been low, mid and high-tops, Air Force 2s, and a myriad of special editions. These shoes have been through a lot. Heck, Nelly even dropped a song about them. But now, there’s a car out there driving on Nike AF1-inspired tires.
Lexus partnered with streetwear designer John Elliott to create a special pair of tires for the first-ever UX, the new luxury compact crossover. These tires were designed to mimic the John Elliott x Nike AF1 shoes and they definitely pull it off with white on white layers and double-stitched leather. Yup, there’s leather.
“We were excited to merge the streetwear narrative and design cues of our Air Force 1 with a brand like Lexus. We’re thankful they’ve allowed us to use this moment to celebrate the arts and to bring extra energy to our take on a classic,” said John Elliott. “It’s fun to partner with brands that typically live outside the fashion community because it allows us to evolve and continue to push our own boundaries.”
