Release details are still unknown for Drake’s highly-anticipated album Certified Lover Boy, but if there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that he’s going to be dropping some collaborative footwear with Nike to coincide with the new record. After previewing some of his NOCTA x Nike Hot Step Air Terra colorways, the OVO rapper is now bringing light to his Air Force 1 “Certified Lover Boy”.From a bird’s eye view, these simple look like any other all-white Air Force 1s, but he’s made some slight constructional modifications to its design that allow it to stand on its own. Instead of the smooth white leathers that you’d find on the crispy white Forces at your local mall, these are crafted with a premium leather build. If you move down to the midsole, you’ll notice that the midsoles have traded out the customary “Air” branding on the lateral heel and instead bring in a debossed “Love You Forever” spell out. It’s unclear as to whether or not this may be a lyric or a song title, but it’s overtly speaks to the “Lover Boy” mantra that the unreleased record possesses. To further expand on this motif, the textures at the front of the shoe has been altered from triangles to heart shapes. Early reports have these scheduled to drop sometime during the Fall season, but Drake and Nike have not confirmed this.If you’re interested in more sneaker news, be sure to check out a first look at the Pass~Port x Nike SB Dunk High “Workboot”.Click here to view full gallery at HYPEBEAST
