Drops Date TBA
One of the most talked-about sneaker releases of recent times—the NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Certified Lover Boy," also known as "Love You Forever"—is set to make a comeback for the Holiday 2023 season — this time with the kids in mind.
The road to the original release of this iconic pair wasn't without its fair share of suspense and anticipation. Rumors and speculations swirled around for months regarding the potential collaboration between Drake's NOCTA label and Nike. Originally planned to coincide with the release of the Certified Lover Boy album in 2021, the exact details of the shoe's official release remained in mystery for a long time. Despite early indications suggesting that the shoes might not be available to the public, fans kept their hopes up.
When the NOCTA x Nike Air Force 1 Low "Certified Lover Boy" eventually graced the shelves in late 2022, it was everything fans could have hoped for. The shoe stayed true to the timeless "Triple White" colorway, boasting a premium tumbled leather upper. However, it was the unique touches that set this collaboration apart.
The heart-shaped toebox perforations gave a nod to its "Certified Lover Boy" name, while the NOCTA branding embroidery at the rear and co-branded insoles added exclusivity to the design. But perhaps the most endearing detail was on the sole units—the customary "AIR" markings were tenderly replaced with "Love you forever" in delicate cursive.
