Nike’s Air Force 1s have gotten multiple makeovers over the years, but the latest interpretation from American Express and Just Don comes just in time for NBA All-Star Weekend.
“We are always looking to reimagine access,” says Deborah Curtis, vice president, global brand partnerships and experiences, American Express. “Partnering with Don C on a limited-edition sneaker gave us an incredible opportunity to do just that for our card members, who may not be in Chicago for NBA All-Star.”
American Express and Just Don have come together to create a blue and red version of the Air Force 1s for the event, marking Amex’s first time working on a sneaker collaboration.
“I hope when people see the sneaker’s design, color and texture, it ignites a feeling – I want everyone to feel the love a kid from Chicago has for his city,” the designer said via statement. “It’s exciting to partner with American Express on a limited-edition sneaker for their card members that is also a nod to the brand’s signature blue.”
Amex members will be the only customers able to buy the sneakers, which will retail for $200. The limited-edition shoe was officially released Feb. 13.
