Booba is no stranger to sneaker culture and hip hop and how the two intersect. As only one of 18 artists asked to participate in the project, he decided the design had to represent himself to the fullest. So the Air Force 1 Low’s started off with a premium red leather upper, his favorite color, that featured a tattoo print from Laura Satana, his favorite tattoo artist and companion. Breaking apart the red was a classic white midsole and matching white tongue with an 09 tag referencing his next album. Representing his home country of Senegal the flag was added to the insoles as well as spotted through the translucent outsoles. Waved laces and special locks finished off this 1World design.
