Nike has unveiled official images for its upcoming collection with Parisian retailer PIGALLE, featuring a duo of Nike Air Force 1 styles and matching tank tops and shorts. Dubbed the Nike x PPP collection (Pain O ChoKolat, PIGALLE Paris and Pompon), the goods celebrate the brands’ mutual love of basketball, as well as the game’s ability to bring together members of diverse backgrounds and communities. Developed with creative guidance from founding PPP crew member Stéphane Ashpool (an erstwhile professional basketball player), the AF1 Hi and AF1 Low are distinguished with leather uppers finished in a waxed coating that will break down with wear, emblematic of the patina that a well-worn basketball court takes on over time. The kicks are joined by cotton shorts and tanks, featuring special tie-dye treatments in two different colorways, along with a two-tone black-and-white basketball and matching cap. The collection launches in stores starting April 26th.
Release Date: April 26, 2014 (Saturday)
