This exclusive collection, known as the “Chicago Pack,” was born through a collaborative effort with LDRS, Notre, RSVP, Saint Alfred, SVRN, and Succezz, paying homage to the resilience of Chicagoans, both in the past and the present. These sneakers narrate the tale of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 and how the community united in its aftermath.
The Nike Air Force 1, a key highlight of the collection, showcases a color palette inspired by the city’s pre-fire architectural charm, featuring Summit White, Gym Red, and Coconut Milk hues. The fire’s origin story, rooted in folklore about Mrs. O’Leary’s cow accidentally knocking over a lantern, comes to life with a cow-print Swoosh on the medial side panel. The distressed leather and vintage-style midsole lend a time-worn aesthetic to the shoe.
