At the end of last month, prestigious New York City jeweler Tiffany & Co. totally broke the internet by revealing that it was officially collaborating with Nike for the Tiffany & Co. x Nike Air Force 1. While some sneakerheads weren't impressed by the shoe's sheer simplicity, others, like us here at Ox Street, were head over heels with the premium project. That said, with the sneaker industry being as fast-paced as it is, even before these drop we're already taking a look at an alternate colorway with the Tiffany & Co. x Nike Air Force 1 "Friends & Family," and here's everything that we know so far.
The "Reverse" nickname is as appropriate as it gets. Not only has the Fifth Avenue accessories brand flipped the colorway from black to blue, it has also switched the materials around as well. This means that the Air Force 1 is crafted predominantly from "Tiffany Blue" tumbled leather, while the Swoosh along the lateral and medial sidewalls opts for a slick black suede instead.
Elsewhere, "Tiffany" is still written across the tongue in a cursive font, while the genuine slab of 925 silver continues to make a cameo around the back, just like the original pair. All of this sits on top of a crisp white Air midsole, and it's finished with a complementary blue rubber outsole, finalizing the design.
The Tiffany & Co. x Nike Air Force 1 "Friends & Family" was made exclusively for the brand's inner circle. However, if these do manage to get a public release, Ox Street will be the first to let you know. Let us know which pair you prefer, and while you're here, here's everything you need to know about the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Paris."
