John Geiger has teamed with hand-dye duo Stealboyz for a collection of special dip-dyed takes on his GF-01. Founded by Chris and Andre James, Stealboyz has gained notoriety in the past for its hand-dyed takes on the Air Force 1, and now it’s whipped up four fresh versions — purple, yellow, pink and green — of Geiger’s popular silhouette, each of which is limited to 50 pairs.

The unique washed look of each pair is achieved by a thorough process. First, the Stealboyz remove laces, insoles and hardware, then carefully dip each shoe in a vat of dye. When enough color has soaked in, the shoes are air-dried, then distressed by hand. For a finishing touch, each is sewn up with a cross-stitch around the collar. All four pairs are completed with a black chenille “G” logo on the midfoot and a sparkling white midsole.

“Coming up in this industry, I would reach out to designers & brands I looked up to. I would usually not receive replies back or they would give me the runaround,” said John Geiger while discussing the collaboration. “I want to use my platform that I’ve grown over the years to support up-and-coming designers. Even if they have a following already, I learned that a simple co-sign can go a long way.”

All four colorways of the John Geiger x Stealboyz GF-01 will release via the John Geiger webstore on July 23 at 12 PM EST. The MSRP for each is set at $240 USD.
