With A New Jacquemus x Nike Collaboration, The ‘JF1’ Is Born

Say hello to this year's hype shoe

Attention Sneakerheads! The drop of the year is just around the corner.

Following the smashing success of Jacquemus x Nike‘s pink and blue Air Humara release last year, the powerhouse duo are back with another iconic partner project, this time reviving the classic Air Force 1 silhouette with a playful French flair, à la Simon Porte Jacquemus.

Dubbed the “J Force 1s,” the collab has been described as “a sophisticated shoe with the spirit of an AF1,” with first-look images of the sneaker surfacing via a sneaky eBay listing. Though the shoes were teased a few days ago on Instagram, with a ‘coming soon’ announcement, we’re just now getting a closer look.

Showcasing a leather outer with classic perforated vamps, mesh tongue and reworked ‘JF1’ branding on its metal lace dubraes, the shoe takes a whimsical turn with unique nylon weaving that wraps around the sole.

Elsewhere, the sneaker boasts Swoosh-branded leather aglets on its laces, debossed co-branding on its heel tab and small metallic Swooshes on its side panels, similar to the Humara.

While Nike has been known to collaborate with a host of heavyweight athletes, Jacquemus has only partnered with Danish homewares brand Tekla for a collection of cosy duvets, towels, bralettes, shorts, robes and other sleepwear in a range of crisp blues, tans and browns.

Sharing the news of his latest partnership with Nike on Instagram, the designer confirmed that we could expect a launch sooner than expected—June 13th, specifically.

“So excited to share with you JF1,” he wrote. “A hybrid of the very famous AIR FORCE 1 and the NIKE ACG TERRA, one of my fav shoes ever from Nike.”

The Jacquemus X Nike JFI is slated for a release on June 13th via Nike, priced at $170 USD ($229 SGD, approx.)
