Bella Hadid Models Five of the Biggest Nike Air Force 1 Collabs
Our friends at Footwear News shared this tidbit of information with us to share with our sneaker and gorgeous women loving fans.
Supermodel and ex-girlfriend to the now single The Weeknd, Bella Hadid rocked the Nike Air Force 100 iconic sneakers in an exclusive interview and shoot with Footwear News for next week’s cover. Debuting this weekend, the AF100 is a limited edition five-shoe pack based off Nike’s iconic white-on-white sneakers. She admitted she’s a low-key “sneakerhead” who “pairs sneakers with everything… a gown, a short dress, a long dress, sweatpants, track suits, shorts.”
Bella Hadid knows how to make an entrance. On a rainy Tuesday afternoon in October, she glided into the lobby of FN’s Midtown New York headquarters wearing a striking red, white and blue Nike x Kith tracksuit and a crisp pair of Air Zoom Spiridons.
A few minutes later, Hadid, with an entourage in tow, was on-set spinning a basketball on her finger as tunes from Drake; Tyler, the Creator; and other hot musicians played in the background. The trendsetter, who’s just 21, rocked a statement look for the first shot, which included a Fendi gray silk bomber jacket with floral embroidery and Air Force 1 Hi Just Don by Don “Don C” Crawley sneakers.
Over the next hour, Hadid — who signed on as a Nike ambassador last November — effortlessly worked four more Air Force One AF100 collaboration styles. They’re all part of a 35th anniversary pack based on the shoe’s most important colorway: white-on-white.
Hadid, who has experienced a meteoric rise in the fashion world, might not be an obvious fit as an Air Force 1 frontwoman — or as a cover star for FN’s annual sneakerhead issue. After all, she’s most often seen walking the runway in heels for top brands including Versace, Fendi and Marc Jacobs. But if Hadid had it her way, she would probably be in sneakers. “I would pair them with everything,” Hadid told FN. “I’ve worn sneakers with a gown, with a short dress, a long dress, sweatpants, tracksuits, shorts. You could wear them with anything.”
What dominates her closet:
“It’s mostly sneakers. I love to have a heels moment, but sneakers always end up looking cooler…”
Getting in runway shape:
“I like to train hard, but still give myself cheat days and allow myself to eat the things I want when I crave them. Everything in moderation.”
