Platon Photographs Colin Kaepernick for Nike #TrueTo7 Air Force Ones Campaign
On Monday, December 23, Nike released a pair of Air Force One sneakers inspired by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The shoes include a portrait of Kaepernick embroidered on the heel, his personal logo on the tongue, and a number 7 hangtag (Kaepernick's jersey number). The shoes sold out the same day they dropped.
Platon was commissioned by Nike to shoot Kaepernick in a series of black and white portraits for the campaign. Platon's full portfolio is available upon request.
