While previously thought to be canceled due to production issues, an official look at Drake‘s NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 “Certified Lover Boy” has now surfaced. While no release date has been confirmed, the Certified Lover Boy album was released on September 3 of last year, so the timing may align for a one-year anniversary drop.
The upcoming pairs sport clean “Triple White” color-blocking with tumbled leather uppers and gunmetal “AF1” lace dubraes. Key features include cursive “Love You Forever” embossing on the rubber midsoles in place of the traditional “AIR” text, and NOCTA’s three-star logo embroidered on the heel tab. Collaboration co-branding can be found on the baby blue insoles and more subtle details include varying perforations on the toe box and heart-shaped grooves on the toe and heel section of the outsoles. Rounding out the offering is an extra set of metal-tipped laces and cube letter bead attachments.
Take an official look at Drake’s NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Certified Lover Boy” above and expect the pairs to release in the coming weeks at Nike’s website and select retailers for $160 USD.
