Pandemonium At The Nike + R.T. Release

As streetwear and high fashion have become basically one in the same, no one has been more instrumental to this merger than Givenchy's Creative Director, Riccardo Tisci. His iconic graphic T-shirts and street sensibilities have put himself and Givenchy at the forefront of the fashion industry, so when his Air Force 1 footwear collaboration with Nike was announced, we knew nothing short of sheer pandemonium would ensue on release day. In anticipation of the chaos, we headed to downtown New York to check out the scene at both SoHo retail outlets: the holy sneaker temple that is Nike Sportswear's 21 Mercer outpost, and the 3-days-only pop-up shop dedicated to Nike + R.T. located at 151 Wooster Street. As expected, the scene was nothing short of a frenzy—another extremely successful Nike collaboration in the books.
