Introducing the Nike Sportswear x Livestrong x Mister Cartoon Air Force 1. To raise


Introducing the Nike Sportswear x Livestrong x Mister Cartoon Air Force 1.

To raise awareness for the global fight against cancer, Nike Sportswear has re-designed eight of its most coveted and iconic collaborations from the last decade and will re-release them as part of this exclusive LIVESTRONG Collection. Split into two installments, the first four-shoe pack drops in July during the Tour de France and features what can only be described as ‘holy grails’ of the sneaker scene.

Never released publicly, the original Mister Cartoon Air Force 1 was only available to select friends and family of Los Angeles’ most celebrated tattoo artist. Immediately acknowledged as an instant classic, die-hard collectors paid upwards of $3,000 for the limited pairs that made it outside. Comprehensively re-worked by Mister Cartoon for this release, the new look AF1 again deploys Laser technology to provide the gritty graphics reflecting its city of origin.

100% of the proceeds from this release go towards the Lance Armstrong Foundation in the fight against Cancer. The Nike Sportswear x Livestrong x Mister Cartoon Air Force 1 will launch at Midnight on July 2nd exclusively at Mister Cartoon’s tattoo shop in Los Angeles, with a wider release on July 4th celebrating the first day of the Tour de France.
