In celebrity circles, it’s being called “The List,” a presumed log of designers, athletes, musicians, and the like who have received a pair of the highly sought after “Friends & Family” Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 Lows conceptualized by the late Virgil Abloh. To date, that list has included everyone from LeBron James to DJ Khaled to Eminem to “Mr. 2 Pairs” Nelly and so on. In an Instagram Stories post last month, designer Don C, one of Virgil’s closest friends, suggested that Nike and Louis Vuitton are running separate lists, which resulted in him obtaining two different Friends & Family pairs. Despite the apparent dual lists, the mail hasn’t been kind to everyone—Meek Mill is probably still wondering where his “Air Force Louie sneaks” are at.
The “Friends & Family” Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 lineup consists of eight colorways, each bearing a solid-colored upper debossed with monogram print, contrasting white Swooshes and linings, Off-White-style tagging, and the classic sole setup with Virgil’s famous “AIR” lettering. Pairs were presented in special Louis Vuitton x Nike breakdown boxes and protected by custom dust bags.
