Do We Need An Official Gucci Nike Air Force 1?

We've been seeing customs for years. Is it time for the real deal?

Custom/bootleg Gucci has been a thing since the 80s word to Dapper Dan. During the early 2000s Gucci print was seen on all types of clothing and footwear, including the iconic Air Force 1.

The moment that popularized the Gucci Air Force 1 was Jadakiss' "Knock Yourself Out" video. I remember watching that video on BET, seeing the shot of his shoes and my mouth hitting the floor from shock value.

However, history always repeats when it comes to fashion and trends. Don C recently shared a photo of Taz Arnold wearing a pair of Gucci Air Force 1 Highs. No surprise, right?!

My question is with the current state of Nike collaborations, is time for Gucci and Nike to officially collaborate? If Nike hadn't worked with high end designers I would say this collab would never happen.

It's just a thought that I had and wanted to present to TSG readers. Let's talk about!

Don’t think I would pay the cash it would cost for this collab.

this shouldve happened a very long time ago, this was definitely the craze when I was in high school with not just Gucci print, but Burberry and LV as well

Nah if Im Nike wants the upside to this?? I mean they've been doing Gucci colorways since before it was Blue Ribbon Sports...lol....I think with the exception of maybe the Gucci Sb's (which later released anyway) I dont think they've ever had an issue.....I mean lets see what happens with FOG...if the product moves then maybe we entered a new phase and a new way for Nike to charge a higher price point and get away with it....which BTW there is ZERO reason for FOGS to be at a $400 price point...But an official Nike x Gucci collab...nah why we need that??

I definitely wanted a pair back then but I think somethings are better left in the past. If they did do it I’m assuming they’d be super limited but I would pass no matter.

I could see this happening, but the most important question is what would the retail price be? This collab would appeal more to Nike's fanbase than Gucci so the price would have to be reasonable. I know reasonable and designer brands don't belong in the same sentence, but....
