Elton John’s Custom Nike Sneakers Are Insane—And We Totally Want Them: SORRY, KANYE WEST!
Nike has created a special disco ball-inspired shoe for Sir Elton John, featuring an elevated sole and a slick rainbow stripe.
“The Nike AF1 Jet is a one-of-a-kind sneaker created to say thank you to Elton for his commitment to diversity and inclusion, and his long-standing relationship with Nike,” Nike said in a statement.
The shoes are inspired by the singer’s disco days, where he’d tickle the ivories under glowing mirror balls in the packed clubs of the ’70s, often in a pair of Nikes. The shoes also have a BeTrue-esque rainbow along the sole and a BeTrue logo on the tongue.
