Nike has awarded Sir Elton John with special Air Force 1 Jet sneaker. Silver shoes ae inspired by a British Knight’s Armor as well as a disco ball, which combines Elton John’s status as a knight and his influence on music.
The one-of-a-kind shoe is intended to thank the entertainer for his “commitment to diversity and inclusion, and his long-standing relationship with Nike,” the company said.
The special tongue label as well as the rainbow gradient on the sole represents Nike’s BE TRUE message, which promotes diversity, inclusion, and most importantly, equal rights for all.
Nike X Elton John Air Force 1 “Jet” was designed and produced entirely at the brand’s Beaverton, Ore., headquarters with manufacturing taking place in The Builder’s Lab. The exclusive sneakers were gifted to John during a recent visit to Eugene, Ore, and will not release to the public.
