After a MAGIC STICK x Nike Air Force 1 surfaced at Paris Fashion Week — worn by UNITED ARROWS & SONS director Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi – more details of the sneaker have now emerged. The standout detail of the shoe is the neon yellow Air Force 1 ankle strap, which is designed to look like VIP wristbands given out in nightclubs. The strap is made from the same material — Tyvek — as these wristbands, and even features a snap-hole fastening system.
Other features of the sneaker include its all-white suede and leather construction, as well as reflective yellow detailing on the tongue and heel tab. MAGIC STICK’s Naotaka Konno also took to Instagram to announce that the sneaker also features touches of 3M and Volt.
Take a look at the MAGIC STICK x Nike Air Force 1 “VIP” above, with the sneaker set to drop via Nike stores and the NikeLab web store on February 10, before making its way to other retailers a day later. The sneaker is set to cost ¥16200 JPY (approx. $150 USD) and is a Japan exclusive.
