Earlier this month we introduced the Be True Collection, a collaborative effort between Nike Sportswear and legendary artist Futura that pays homage to the New York Yankees. With paying tribute to last year’s 27th World Championship for the Yankees in mind, Futura and Nike Sportswear created a collection of Yankees inspired shirts, jerseys, jackets, and now one of the most popular sneakers of all time, the Air Force 1.

Considering that the Nike Air Force 1 is arguably the most popular sneaker of all time in New York City, it makes sense that Futura and Nike would choose it to be a part of the Be True Collection. In all, three colorways of the Air Force 1 were created, fittingly in the Bronx Bombers colors of white and navy blue. Each of the colorways feature Futura’s graphics including his Bronx Bomber caricature seen on the Be True Collection tees, jerseys, and jackets, as well as some other creative details that include baseball bats on the heel and his signature on the tongue tag.

Available now: Futura x Nike Be True Air Force 1 Collection
