The first time we found out of DJ Premier working with Nike was back in August when DJ AM passed away. Premier went on the radio to speak a little about AM and the upcoming collaboration with Nike they were both working on. We have since seen the DJ AM x Nike Dunk High and now we are blessed with some images of the DJ Premier x Nike Air Force 1 thanks to Dunk.cn. For his version of the Air Force 1 DJ Premier dressed the shoes up in a color combo of black, dark green and dark blue with an upper sporting a mixture of what looks to be premium leather, nubuck and some sort of textured material on the mid-panels and heel tab. Subtle contrast stitching in orange accents the upper along with a hit of white on the Nike Swoosh. Lased engraved onto the heel of the sneakers is DJ Premier’s calling with “DJ” on the heel of the left sneaker and “Premier” on the heel of the right sneaker. Premier also appears on the lace locks and on the lace tips of the white and black laces included with the sneakers. Wrapping up the DJ Premier x Nike Air Force 1 is a translucent outsole featuring a repeating design of turntables beneath it.
Watch for the sneakers to release soon as select Nike retailers.
