Last year, Drake set the sneaker world abuzz with the release of his NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Certified Lover Boy." Now, fans of the Canadian superstar have reason to rejoice, as a restock of this highly sought-after collaboration is just around the corner.
The original release of the Drake x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Certified Lover Boy" is a story within itself—leaked information hinted at a white-based colorway with premium materials and Drake's signature touches. Initial imagery revealed subtle tweaks to the classic Air Force 1 design, with "AIR" branding on the lateral midsole replaced by "Love you forever" in cursive. The outsole featured star molds replaced by miniature love hearts, adding a romantic touch to the design. The sneakers also boasted leather liners and were to arrive with special graphic insoles and packaging.
After lengthy delays — almost for a full 12 months — there were rumors of a potential cancelation, but industry insiders eventually confirmed that the release would go ahead in November 2022. Now, twelve months on, Nike US will be restocking the minimalist link-up, with the Drake x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Certified Lover Boy" scheduled for November 24, 2023, on Nike SNKRS.
Until then, you can reacquaint yourself with the release below.
