Carhartt WIP x Nike-1

Carhartt & Nike Have Collaborated For These Air Force & Air Max Releases

Introduction

Carhartt WIP x Nike-2Founded way back in 1889, Carhartt WIP is referred to as “a subcultural phenomenon” today and has become a symbol of contemporary style. Even after 129 years, their heavy duty garments continue to remain durable, of the highest quality, and stylish. Back in March 2018, Australia-based “bespoke atelier” BespokeIND a custom Nike Air Max 1 inspired by Carhartt WIP, which was specially designed in celebration of Air Max Day 2018. Its detachable heel caps had “W.I.P.” embroidered over them. Until recently, a custom pair was the only way a Nike sneaker would feature Carhartt WIP branding. Now though, it seems that Carhartt WIP and Nike are actually teaming up.

The Carhartt WIP x Nike Air Force Low Releases

The Carhartt WIP x Nike collaboration consists of three sneaker models, including the Air Force 1 Low and the Air Force Utility Low. As you can see, the images above are illustrations rather than actual photo, but that is what these iterations will look like. The Air Force 1 Low will be dressed up in Ale Brown and Sale, and the Air Force Utility is dressed up in Camo Green, Gum Light Brown and Total Orange. So far, just the retail price of the Air Force 1 Low is known, which is $135.

In addition to the two Air Force Low releases, Carhartt WIP and Nike seem to have collaboratively whipped up an Air Max 95 colorway as well. Like the other two, the image above is also an illustration shared by @py_rates. As can be seen though, its uppers are dressed up in a combination of Black, Sail and Total Orange. Black also appears to be covering its entire soles, while Total Orange can also be spotted over the visible Air units. As the image above suggests, you can expect this Carhartt WIP x Nike Air Max 95 to make its retail debut somewhere in October 2018, perhaps near Halloween.
