The branding has been done on the sneakers with the printing of the “Billie Eilish” lettering on the insoles. The design is completed with the traditional Air soles in a darker green tone.
The Nike x Billie Eilish Sequoia Air Force 1 High silhouette will be available on the official SNKRS e-commerce site on October 14, 2022, with a retail price of $180.
