RAC and UBIQLab Team Up To Make Hybrid "Air More Force Noir"
Designer RAC has teamed up with UBIQ‘s customizer UBIQLab to create a one-off sneaker dubbed the ”Air More Force Noir.” The show combines two iconic Nike basketball silhouettes — The Air Force 1 and Air More Uptempo (Scottie Pippen’s)— resulting in a hybrid sneaker that is truly a love it or hate it result. RAC had initially drawn up a concept sketch before the duo’s prototype came into fruition.
RAC is a mentee of John Geiger, who is also a sneaker customizer. Overall the shoe leaves its influences very pronounced - sneaker fans can easily identify the source of the sole and upper. It’s the addition of a 3M swoosh that gives this shoe much of its intrigue. You can follow RAC at @RACSLIFE_ and view more of his work and process.
