One more reason to check out BOFFO's upcoming pop-up shop for The Lake & Stars: The lingerie designers have just announced that they're working on a special collaboration with Nike, of all companies. Stop by the store when it opens on November 10th to check out The Lake & Stars/Air Force One sneaker, and bask in the knowledge that you're supporting a struggling arts organization while you're at it.

Update: While The Lake & Stars provided guidance on colors and other details, Nike didn't alter their classic Air Force One design in any way, making this a partnership rather than a collaboration in design-speak.
