Nike collaborating with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci will come at a premium cost for consumers. Rihanna was recently spotting rocking kicks from the collection, but prepare to dig in your wallet if you want your own. 

Says The Smoking Section:

Not sure how it came about, but Riccardo Tisci is throwing down three Air Forces in a tag team of epic designer proportions with Nike. The price tag for the Givenchy Art Director’s latest effort are equally opulent but still not as high priced as some other fugly designer sneakers we’ve all seen. Tisci took a hands on approach to the quartet of shoes in his upcoming drop, utilizing different materials and patterns to give each shoe its own character. Tones of yellow, orange, blue and black are common in all four kicks.

The Air Force One Lows stayed true to the original shape, but the rest of the collection got an overhaul. The Lows are priced at $230, the mids at $260, the highs at $320, and the”boots” at $340. Lovers of the Kobe 9 will definitely like the highs…

$230 for some glorified Air Force 1s? Read the rest of the story over at The Smoking Section.
