[Update 31 Oct 2022] Good news!

NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 Low Certified Lover Boy

[Update 1 Aug] What a time to be alive, we now have better views of the NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 through the official images released. Much like the namesake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes, it retains plenty of familiarity but to a discerning fan, nothing was the same. For awhile, the release was so far gone due to the heart-embossment on the tip and heel being too challenging to produce. But now it seems, is its comeback season.

There’re some fine distinctions that breathes more life into this classic like the aforementioned heart-embossment, and the “Love you forever” cursive text on the lateral heel; finding room for improvement while maintaining the austere triple-white dresscode.

If you’re reading this, hope it’s not too late to get your hands on this coveted pair. Another L on SNKRS would sting like a scorpion. No release date has been confirmed but considering the hype surrounding anything related to Drake, we’re pretty sure you’d have to stay up on this like the OVO owl. We’ll give an update once we get word! If you do miss the raffle, you can get it on the SNKRDUNK app, eventually. Thank us later.

Drake fans, did you spot the album and mixtape names imbedded in the update?

Honestly, nevermind. Take care.

LINEA special Air Force 1 collaboration celebrating the long-awaited release of Drake’s latest album!

With a sophisticated sound, sweet voice, and lyrics that sometimes seem to be bared of his heart, “Drake” is a charismatic Canadian artist who has created a new wave in the Hip-Hop world. He has been wearing Nike since he was a child, who has been developing “Air Jordan 8” and “Air Jordan 10” under his own street label, “OCTOBER’S VERY OWN aka OVO”. His brand also boasts an immense influence on street culture, as evidenced by its joint apparel collection “NOCTA” with Nike.

The latest release of the Drake’s album, “CERTIFIED LOVER BOY,” has been postponed, but at this time a special model has been leaked to celebrate its release the album. Based on the “Air Force 1”, the shoe is dyed in “White ON White”, a street staple and one of the most iconic colors. On the midsole, the standard “AIR” has been rearranged to read “LOVE YOU FOREVER”. The toe and heel grips on the back of the sole have been changed from the standard “star” to DRAKE’s beloved “heart,” and other special details have been added while retaining the charm of yesteryear.
