RTFKT announced on its Instagram that it gifted a select group of 40 individuals a special Air Force 1 Low edition. This ‘What The’ edition features a captivating blend of details from all 10 of the April released AF1s, including two Takashi Murakami designs. The result is a striking mix of colors and prints.
