Summer promises to be really full of pleasant surprises.
After the successful launch of Jacquemus x Nike Air Humra in 2022 in a blue and pink version, the French label’s designer chooses another iconic Nike sneaker model for the next collaboration: the J Force 1. Obviously revisited in the unmistakable and refined Jacquemus style .
Ironically it was neither Jacquemus‘ nor Nike ‘s official website that gave us a preview of the eagerly awaited article, but rather the eBay platform, where the dirty_laces resale shop based in Cranston, Rhode Island, published the new sneakers at price around $200.
Therefore, through some teasers of the collab published on social networks and some photos leaked by EBay, it was finally possible to take a first look at the protagonist shoes of this partnership.
The new Jacquemus X Nike j force 1 collaboration has been described as “a sophisticated shoe with the spirit of an AF1”.
The classic shape designed by Bruce Kilgore has remained almost unchanged, except for the side swoosh, now replaced by a smaller metal one. Manager Simon Porte adds the Jacquemus brand’s unique DNA and a sense of high fashion by incorporating a woven covered midsole. The upper is made entirely of leather, with a mesh tongue and lining.
The outcome of the long-awaited collab is immediately recognizable by the natural shade of white of the upper. The shoe also comes complete with a co-branding logo engraved on the heel tab and is enhanced by the small metallic nike Swooshes that appear on the side panels.
The distinctive touch is finally given by the fabric weaving made with an enveloping nylon cord that ties the midsole to the upper and by the metal dubrae in which the writing “JF1” stands out. This particular midsole that characterizes the lower area of the silhouette, taking up that of the Air Humara, also features a pattern with blocks under which the “JACQUEMUS” logo is imprinted.
Even though we expected the sneaker to be made only in the white colourway, black variant is also present in the collection.
Jacquemus x Nike J Force 1 Low sneakers will be reportedly available for purchase from June 13th at select Nike retailers, on Nike.com and Jacquemus website at the price of $170 USD.
