GIRLGAZE X NIKE
All For 1

Celebrating Unsung Heroes Across North America

Nike Force x Girlgaze — see our latest collab.
Together with Nike, we recognized local unsung heroes who love the Air Force 1 and who are igniting change in their communities. Girlgaze chose eight female photographers to capture the imagery, creating an inclusive space in an environment historically dominated by men.

The Nike Air Force 1 has crossed the boundary from court to street since its 1982 launch with one thing remaining consistent: The communities and people who have adopted the sneaker and made it an icon praise the Air Force 1 for its toughness and resilience. The Air Force 1 has become a representation of hard work and determination just as much as style and fashion.

Whether in front of the camera or behind it, we are shedding light on unsung heroes in the community that are creating change to empower those around them. They are all voices who understand that we are greater than the sum of our parts as we move forward all for 1.
