Sneaker Spotlight: Busy P x Nike Air Force 1 Low

Busy P x Nike Air Force 1 Low

In 2008 Busy P and Nike collaborated on an Air Force 1 Low that quickly became one of the most recognizable version of the sneaker. This Air Force 1 Low was part of the famed 1World pack from Nike. The 1World pack focused on working with 18 separate influences around the world and have them create a shoe that reflected who they were. A version released every month, Busy P may have taken cake with his rendition of the classic silhouette. Pedro Winters, more known as Busy P, is well-known all around the world but especially in Europe for working with famed act Daft Punk as a producer. He is also the owner of Ed Banger Records that has a star-studded roster of other artists under his belt.

The Air Force 1 Low silhouette was chosen to bring out Busy P’s vision on how he wanted his designed sneaker to look like. The upper is composed of premium black leather with a matching smoked black outsole. The real magic of this sneaker is the addition of color around this special pair. The upper shows a story between Busy P and Nike trying to come to terms on what he wants and what can be done. He did all the artwork found on this that is featured on the exterior as well as on the insole. The dialogue is quite hysterical as it looks like he is asking for more and more color. The midsole features an array of colors fading into eachother.

The Swoosh is composed of a violet patent leather Swoosh with pink contrast stitching. The insole of the shoe has a thank you note and says that this pair was his taste and he hopes that other will enjoy his creation. The Busy P collaboration caused quite a buzz and on its initial release at Collete Paris, very few pairs were available and many #sneakerholics were left wanting to cop a pair. The Busy P Air Force 1 is quite a prized pair for Air Force 1 collectors and over the years obtaining a pair has been quite a mission. Do you have a pair in your collection? We are very fortunate to have this gem on the wiki. What are your thoughts on this unique pair?
