Making a name for himself in controversy, Colin Kaepernick‘s Nike backing has seen him right on the billboards of NYC streets to small facets of your daily media consumption. And while his career playing in the NFL is still largely up in the air, he’s taken his name from the back of his jersey straight to a pair of Air Force 1’s.
Giving us a tease of the silhouette as Kaepernick made the grass for his workout, we’ve now got a full look at the collaboration as its release nears on the 24th of December.
Premium leathers wrap the upper of the classic Air Force 1 silhouette, with the waxy leathers accented by a white gradient swoosh, CK7 tongue tabs, and embroidered profile amongst the heel tab. Rolling through to the iced out sole, Kaepernick and Nike add the subtle detail of the date he took the knee in protest.
