Next spring Forget about heels and flats. With Chanel show the way with the haute couture collection, the trainers will be the ultimate shoe for fashionistas everywhere. The trainers, therefore, have their honor and Riccardo Tisci of maison Givenchy comes to do even more coveted by releasing a collection in collaboration with sportswear company Nike.

The first samples of of this cooperation will be released on the first day of spring and is a version of the classic Air Force 1 in four designs in white color (one of them reaches to the knee). A month later, on April 1, will be released this version in black.
As for Riccardo Tisci, choosing the Air Force 1 is not fortuitous.
“The shoe is universal yet somehow very personal,” says Tisci. “I travel all over the world, and I see people wearing the Air Force 1, and they wear it in so many different ways. And so I was thinking, what is the essence of the Air Force 1? And how do I take that essence and make my own statement?”
Tisci continues, “For me the Air Force 1 is not about gender, it’s not about a particular city, nor is it about a certain style. The community decides. It’s democratic. It’s love.”
