|1WORLD is a collection of Air Force One, created in partnership with global innovators in the fields of sport, music, art & design. Featuring 18 original styles, the collection will be released over the course of eight months and will see the Air Force 1 once again exploring new territory.
In August 2008, Nike Sportswear will release the Air Force 1 “Air Questo,” created for 1WORLD in partnership with Philadelphia???s Ahmir Thompson, also known as drummer, DJ, producer and innovator, ?uest Love
???These Air Questo???s right here are an extension of my personality. Kind of all-over-the-place??? said ?uest Love. ???I just wanted to start off with a very loud statement, a sneaker that sort of has 12 exclamation points behind it. Something that just screams ???Rahhhhrr??? so you know, this is an extension of my personality. The inside (of the shoe) is of me drumming. Yeah, inside art is very important to me. Even though you???re the only person that sees it from a consumer standpoint but, I sorta know you put a lot of work into it as a designer based on how your shoe is designed on the sole.???
???Working with ?uest was very inspiring??? said Nike Sportswear Design Director, Jesse Leyva. ???The creative process between sneaker design and his music creativity really made for a unique partnership.???
?uest Love???s Air Questo is the third Air Force 1 created in the US for 1WORLD, and joins Detroit forward Rasheed Wallace and artist KAWS as having had the chance to ???get up on the AF1??? as part of the 1WORLD collection.
The Air Force 1 “Air Questo,” created for 1WORLD in partnership with Philadelphia???s ?uest Love will release at:
