“Everyone in the world needs identity so they are all making themselves into tribes.” Tisci continues, “ They are more Goth, more pure or more punk, more rap, more R&B…You can have a million different tribes, but its always one thing that unites them.”

THIRD & THE LAST

NikeLab presents the third and final installment of the Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 trilogy with the release of the Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 collection in beige. Joining the family of AF1s with the preceding Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 collections in white and black, all three colorways represent the power of sport to unite disparate tribes under one love – love of the Nike Air Force 1.

BEIGE COLLECTION

As with the earlier collections, the Nike + R.T. AF1 Collection in beige introduces four striking styles crafted with premium leather. The supple material provides comfort and durability, while a tumbled leather Swoosh adds eye-catching contrast. Similarly, the shoes’ tongues and heels are fashioned from synthetic suede, with heat-pressed TPU no-sew panels that enhance their strength and intensify their appearance—as do modified toe box perforations.

A new, low-profile midsole unites lightweight Phylon cushioning with Tisci’s trademark bravado—visible via progressive textures and detailed overlays—and joint R.T. and Nike Air branding. The shoes also boast a cup sole and a non-marking rubber outsole, which enhances traction and resilience, and underscores a focus on functionality.

TRIBE CULTURE

Tribe culture, as Tisci describes, is a reflection of the youth generation today.

“Everyone in the world needs identity so they are all making themselves into tribes.” Tisci continues, “ They are more Goth, more pure or more punk, more rap, more R&B…You can have a million different tribes, but its always one thing that unites them.”

The Nike + R.T. Air Force 1Beige Collection hits NikeLab locations around the world and nike.com/nikelab on October 16th.
