As a part of Nike's Greatest Hits Collection, some classic collaboration items from Nike X LIVESTRONG will be released this summer. One of the most coveted models is the Nike Sportswear X LIVESTRONG X Mister Cartoon Air Force 1, which is a reprisal of the original and legendary collaboration between the tattoo artist and Nike, and also infamously never released to public. The new collaborative piece is remade by the tattoo artist for the collection, drenched in LIVESTRONG's signature black and yellow. Graphics and details such as the spiderweb and iconic tattoo emblems of skulls and roses are laser-etched. The shoe also pays homage to Los Angeles as the cityscape is etched into the shoe upper and a 'LA' embroidery in a gothic fancy font adorns the rear of the shoe. Another interesting detail is the Nike Swoosh, which is finished in a smooth gradient transitioning black to yellow, contrasting with the rear and side panels.
These shoes are scheduled to drop first at Mister Cartoon's shop in Los Angeles on Jul 2, and released in more locations on Jul 4 in concordance with the start of the Tour de France. 100% of the proceeds from sales will go to fight against cancer. Below is a list of spots that will be releasing these kicks on Jul 4, so keep an eye out for them coming to your city! Via:: Nike Sportswear
