Bryson Tiller is up to something super cool. He has recently partnered and collabed with Nike. He is helping to create the Air Force 1 Bespoke iDs. This shoe is inspired by his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
Nike describes Bryson by stating that “…Tiller’s attention to detail and focus on relating his journey repeatedly rings true.”
Tiller grew up with his grandma and has always been into fashion. He wore a uniform to school so the only way he could express himself was through his sneakers. The classic black-on-black Air Force 1 became his go-to shoe.
Tiller walked into the Nike studio and was blown away by the endless possibilities. All of the different leathers, textures, and colors that can be used are immense. He exclaims “It’s inspiring to see what’s possible, and I designed a pair based on my hometown boxing tie’s to the city.”
His hometown boxing heroes are the main inspiration for this shoe. He came up with the main color of the shoe being university red-grain leather which represents the look and feel of boxing gloves. The tongue on the shoe is yellow also representing the same pair of boxing gloves. There are gold accents on the shoe and the sole is white. They are super fresh and are truly an amazing.
For Tiller the word possibility is a word he knows all too well. He was able to find possibility and flourish in his hometown. This shoe means a lot to him and we are excited to try them out.
