Sir Elton John has been given his own custom made Nikes to mark his “long-standing relationship” with the sports brand.
The ‘Rocket Man’ singer now owns a unique pair of shoes called Air Forces 1 Jet made by the iconic sports brand after they decided to honour the 69-year-old star for his “commitment to diversity and inclusion, and his long-standing relationship with Nike”.
The trainers are said to be inspired by the ‘I’m Still Standing’ hitmaker’s knighthood with a silver upper part and as well as a disco ball and it also has the words Sir on the back end.
Elton received them as a gift last weekend when he visited the company’s head quarters in Eugene, Oregon in the US.
The ‘Tiny Dancer’ singer has been associated with Nike since the mid 70s when they started making custom shoes for him.
Meanwhile, late last year, Elton, who is known for his quirky style and trademark glasses collection, revealed he is launching a limited edition fashion range with Lady Gaga.
He joined forces with the ‘Born This Way’ hitmaker’s sister Natali Germanotta and fashion designer Brandon Maxwell on a limited edition clothing and accessories line called Love Bravery for the American department store Macy’s.
Speaking previously about their collaboration, the ‘Blue Wonderful’ previously said: “I love the idea of fusing who you are on the inside – your passions and dreams – with what you wear on the outside.
“Love Bravery is about the compassion on the inside to understand someone’s fears, and the bravery on the outside to stand up for them, and for yourself: to accept others for who they are and to be who you want to be. It’s what I’ve tried to do in my life, my career and with the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and it’s a passion Lady Gaga and I share. So I’m thrilled we are collaborating on this project and delighted Macy’s understood our dream to connect with people this way.”
