New York artist Aurora Anthony is grabbing attention with both his music and his streetwear brand 100 Wolves, so much so that Nike just put him in touch with an Air Force 1 exclusive to his friends and family. .
Designed to coincide with the release of his album Tunde, Aurora Anthony’s 100 Wolves x Nike Air Force 1 Low pay homage to her Nigerian heritage. It uses white and green as the base colors – a reference to the country’s flag – as well as black on the sole and details. A personal touch is added to the heel of the shoe, which features 100 Wolves logo embroidery on the outer sides while the right heel tab is embroidered with the album name in red.
Sources tell Complex that only 25 pairs of these 100 Wolves x Nike Air Force 1 Low have been made.
” I reversed [the flag colors] and I made the interior nail in the shoes and the interlocking green with suede to show the luxury where I come from, âAurora Anthony told African magazine Native. “I want everyone to have an all-white shoe and feel comfortable owning an all-white shoe without having the issues of wearing an all-white shoe.”
This is not the first time that the rapper has worked with Nike. In addition to community initiatives and modeling work, Aurora Anthony participated in the Custom Cultivatator Series in 2018, where he created an Air Force 1 High in white and green leather (pictured below).
