Drake and Nike are rumored to be working on releasing an OVO-branded Air Force 1 together at some point next year. The rumor comes via leak account @zsneakerheadz, while Complex has corroborated that Nike and Drake will be dropping another sneaker, though couldn’t confirm that it would be the Air Force 1.

Drake and Nike have a long-standing partnership that reaches back to 2013, when the Canadian rapper signed with the Oregonian sportswear giant. Several co-branded sneaker releases followed, before there were rumors that Drake would be jumping ship to adidas. That move ultimately never materialized, though it was reportedly close to being official when Drizzy’s adidas collection was pulled into the infamous Pusha-T beef.

Following the beef and nixed adidas partnership, Drake went back to wearing head-to-toe Nike, though neither side has officially confirmed that they are working together again. Drake was seen at Nike’s Forum 2020 product showcase in February.

As always, nothing has been officially confirmed just yet, so stay tuned for any updates.
