First shared earlier this week on her Instagram page, photographer Christina Paik now gives us an exclusive first look at her Nike Air Force 1 customs. Playing with a variety of different textures and tones, all of the shoe’s patches are rendered with different materials of white. There is also 3M detailing throughout the sneaker – the Swoosh on the side panel is constructed with patent and outlined with reflective lining, while the medial Swoosh is made with its inverse of a 3M base and patent lining.
CP’s hallmark block-font, orange logo is also used as a recurring motif throughout the custom. Along with CP branding on the heel tabs (which are also made with 3M panels), a color-matching Swoosh is on the tongue tab. The insole also highlights the same hue, and is emblazoned across its length with Christina’s handwritten name. Rounding off the look is a removable tag with gold-toned hardware that also features the lenswoman’s monogram.
Although these were solely made as a custom shoe, our fingers are crossed that the collaboration might see a wider release. Stay tuned here as we find out more. You can see more close-up images of the shoe in the gallery below.
