Ranking The A.P.C. x Nike Collaborations

APC-main

With a new Nike release set to hit retail tomorrow, we take a look back and rank the collabs Parisian brand A.P.C. has cooked up with the Swoosh over the last couple of years.

The A.P.C. x Nike drops have not been everyone’s cup of tea as some of the releases may seem a bit bland, but in reality it is the simple details which make them so great. In the past, you could only purchase these collabs at A.P.C., but Nike has decided to open up tomorrow’s (11/6) Free OG 2014 collection as they will be available in limited numbers via Nike Store’s NikeLab.

12: Nike Air Maxim 1 'Navy'

Released: Fall 2013

In the fall of 2013, A.P.C. switched it up a bit in terms of model choice by dropping a pack in the form of the Air Maxim 1. Not only did they use a modified model, but they stepped out of their boundaries by adding some color using lime & orange details which make this navy iteration one of the least desirable within the A.P.C. x Nike line.

11: Nike Air Maxim 1 'White'

Released: Fall 2013

Along with the navy pair that dropped, came an all-white colorway using those same lime and orange hues. Maybe it’s just the ballistic material on the toe box that heads weren’t so keen on.

10: Nike Dunk High 'Chestnut'

Released: Fall/Winter 2012

It’s hard to choose which A.P.C. Dunk is better than the other, as we’re pretty much partial to all of them. With that said, there is something about this shade of brown that makes it just a little bit less desirable among the Dunk releases.

9: Nike Air Max 1 White/Gum

Released: Spring 2013

In 2013, we saw a second round of releases between A.P.C. and Nike. Included in the four-pack was this all white Air Max 1, which was perfect for the warm weather ahead.

8: Nike Blazer

Released: Summer 2014

Released just this past summer, the Nike Blazer is a silo that is a must for any collection. With this being the first Blazer to release from A.P.C, will we possibly see a new colorway in the next round of releases?

7: Nike Dunk High Black/Gum

Released: Spring 2013

We don’t think we’ll EVER get tired of seeing that gum sole. Nuff’ said…

6: Nike Dunk High Off White/Gum

Released: Fall/Winter 2012

It’s hard to go wrong with an all-white Dunk High, especially when you see quality suede & leather being used. With that in mind, we think that makes this particular pair an easy grab when you need a pair of fresh all-whites to work with any outfit.

5: Nike Air Max 1 'Navy'

Released: April 2014

Earlier this year, A.P.C. went back to the original Air Max 1 model using the same minimalistic approach they are known for, but switched it up ever so slightly by using both mesh and synthetic suede on the uppers.

4: Nike Dunk High 'Navy'

Released: Fall/Winter 2012

This all-navy Dunk High from the original 2012 pack is one of our favorites. The matching navy leather Swoosh just pops right off the all-navy upper and the subtle gum outsole is the perfect compliment for the overall look.

PAIRS FOR SALE

3: Nike Dunk High 'Wheat'

Released: Spring 2013

With the recent Nike “Wheat” pack release still fresh in our minds, we can’t help but adore this all-suede pair on top of that contrasting natural gum sole.

PAIRS FOR SALE

2: Nike Air Max 1 Navy/Gum

Released: Fall/Winter 2012

This one is surely a top pair on our list being the first A.P.C. x Air Max 1, featuring a navy canvas upper, a synthetic suede mudguard and a nice contrasted Swoosh that works perfectly with the gum bottom sole.

PAIRS FOR SALE

1: Nike Air Max 1 Black/Gum

Released: Spring 2013

When you apply an all-black upper using suede & mesh matched with an all-black midsole sitting on top of a gum bottom in the form of an Air Max 1, you get an instant classic. What sets this pair off from the rest to us is the fact that A.P.C. used a full grain black leather tongue and collar, which really takes the cake.
