Air Force 1 Premium Georges ‘Entourage’ | Size 10.5
NIKE, NIKE AIR FORCE 1, SIZE 10.5
Rubber, Leather, Cotton
The sneakers are in deadstock condition and come with the original box.
Originally released in 1982, the Air Force 1 is named after the presidential aircraft. Designed by Bruce Kilgore, it was the first basketball shoe to feature revolutionary Nike Air technology. Today it remains as one of Nike’s most iconic, best selling sneakers. The Air Force 1’s ability to be the perfect blank canvas for iconic designs and collaborations has established it as one of the most desirable models for sneaker collectors.
This rare pair is a collaboration between Nike and Undefeated in commemoration of the hit HBO television show Entourage. The Blue Premium Georges ‘Entourage’ was the first sneaker Undefeated and Nike designed in honor of the show. It was made in addition to the Gold Fukijama Air Force 1 featured in the same episode, and in this auction.
In the show, Salvatore “Turtle” Assante spends an entire episode devoted to hunting down the Blue Fukijama Air Force 1 (this model). Though Fukijama is a fictional artist, the sneaker's pop culture history has led it to be a much sought after item for collectors. The striking Air Force 1 features a laser-etched design on Blue & White leather panels. The heels feature “LA” and “Queens Boulevard” text, referencing the character’s residence in LA, as well as Vincent Chase’s breakout performance in the fictional movie “Queens Boulevard.”
These sneakers are a rare find, and are highly sought after.
