Nike has teamed up with New York-based creative Ferris Bueller on a capsule collection for Sneaker-Lab. Bueller, who has worked with with the likes of Kanye West, Pharrell Williams and No Vacancy Inn, was asked to choose three of his favorite Nike silhouettes before giving them a rework — ending up with two takes on the Air Force 1 and a version of the Air Max 90 Ultra 20 Flyknit.
One of the Air Force 1s is titled ‘Bond’ and is a tribute to the James Bond films. Bueller explains that “the shoes represent all the actors who embodied Bond and what they represented for me as a kid. This is also my petition for Idris Elba to be nominated to be the next James Bond.” The updated Air Max 90 also sees Bueller take inspiration from a film, with the ‘Cameron’ sneaker referencing the movie from which the creative takes his own name – chosen for Cameron Fyre, Ferris Bueller’s best friend. The third and final sneaker in the pack is titled ‘Halo’ and is described soberly by Bueller as “a tribute to those we have lost along the way.” The white and grey colorway is inspired by an image of the late Prodigy of Mobb Deep, while the gold Nike Air on the heel tab represents the halo.
All three sneakers are available now from the Sneaker-Lab web store, with prices ranging from $120 USD to $200 USD.
