Fans of Louis Vuitton’s highly anticipated Nike Air Force 1 collection will finally have the opportunity to get a pair this month.

After 47 pairs from the project were displayed at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York, in May, the French luxury fashion house has confirmed this week that the first set of its collaborative Air Force 1 styles will launch before month’s end.

The Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 collection was designed by the fashion label’s late artistic director Virgil Abloh, who passed away in November 2021 from cancer. The first iteration of the collab was released exclusively on Sotheby’s in February via an auction, with proceeds benefitting Abloh’s “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund.

The nine Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1s that will be up for grabs include seven low-top colorways including in tonal white and black looks as well as several two-tone color schemes. The drop will include two mid-top styles as well including one pair featuring Louis Vuitton’s signature Damier Azur print on the leather upper.
