It's been a long time coming, but the Tiffany & Co x Nike Air Force 1 Low is finally on its way. It's already hailed as the release of the year, but does it deliver? We're not entirely sure, but you decide.

The Air Force One Low was the shoe of choice which shouldn't surprise anyone. The silhouette is the go-to for many collaborations in the past, such as Supreme x Nike, Off-White x Nike, and Louis Vuitton x Nike, you get the drift. It was a no-brainer.

One thing about the collab that's got people talking - and not in a good way - is the black Air Force One. Suede aside, Black Air Forces don't exactly have the best reputation. With people light-heartedly bantering that if you wear black AF1s you're up to no good, are dangerous or can't be trusted. That's not exactly something you want to be associated with a luxury jewellery brand, but here we are.

An all-black suede material covers the upper, with a rich Tiffany blue swoosh stealing the limelight. 'Tiffany' in a swirly font replaces the usual Nike Air logo on the tongue, and Metallic silver detailing on the heel ties the luxury look together.

Four-time NBA champion, LeBron James, was spotted in the Air Force 1 Low and a never-before-seen varsity jacket on 31 January 2023, ahead of tip-off against the New York Knicks.

Who doesn't love an accessory? The sneaker streets have shown more interest in the accessories than the Air Force One, which tells you everything you need to know about this collaboration. Sterling silver accessories include a whistle, shoe horn, sneaker toothbrush and deubre.

No sneaker release is safe from critique, and this Tiffany & Co x Nike collaboration has had its fair share. The main question is why Tiffany & Co, a luxury jewellery brand, has chosen to dip their feet into streetwear instead of taking a different path. Is it because they want to expand their market? Maybe. Or is it because they see other brands' success by collaborating with Nike & they want a slice of the pie? Possibly. It could be a number of things, but let's see how it plays out.
