The NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1s are finally here, 1 year after the release of Drakes's Certified Lover Boy album. These sneakers were initially supposed to be released along with this album. When that didn't happen, fans thought these sneakers might have been canceled for release. But hey... Better late than never right?
It may just be a classic silhouette, but a pair of sneakers is not to be missed. The NOCTA brand is subtly visible on the heel and insole of the Air Force 1 collab. The traditional "AIR" stamp is replaced with the phrase "Love You Forever," written in a script font. This a subtle detail that is not easy to see from afar, but it is essential because it plays into the themes of Certified Lover Boy. Nike and Drake also add some alphabet blocks for the shoe's laces. Alongside that a picture book titled Love You Forever. Perhaps these complimentary accessories are the duo's way of making up for the shoe's significantly delayed release. But besides the fabrication, it is the small details that draw attention.
