After working together regularly over the past couple of years, Nike recently confirmed that it was once again collaborating with former Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci on a new capsule collection. Themed around basketball, the collection includes footwear — with Tisci putting his spin on the Air Force 1 High silhouette — as well as accessories and apparel pieces such as track pants, an oxford shirt and a varsity jacket.

The two colorways of the Air Force 1 High are both inspired by the NBA logo, with red, white and blue featuring on either a white or black leather upper. Both colorways come with a red, white and blue ankle strap, as well as a contrasting star beneath the Swoosh. The sneakers also feature Nike x Riccardo Tisci branding on the insole, the midsole, the heel and embroidered on the toe-box.

The sneakers — and the rest of the collection — launch in North America on October 12, Paris on October 20 and globally at all NikeLab stores and the web store on October 21. For more from Nike, check out our interview with Tinker Hatfield about the recently unveiled HyperAdapt 1.0.
