The Slam Jam Socialism teamed up with Basement to launch an official video teaser that explores the themes that inspired Riccardo Tisci in creating his Air Force 1. Tisci’s love of the Air Force 1 runs deep. The shoe is an everyday staple for the noted couture designer, and it is emblematic of his childhood.
His love for the game of basketball created an emotional link to Nike from the very start, making the Nike X R.T. AF1 collection deeply personal. Sport is about connecting through collectivity, and the game of basketball is a leveller that unites every background. Tisci’s vision of sportswear is spun from the same philosophy of tribal unity.
