Nike Turns Fortnite into an ‘Airphoria’ Island for Sneaker Heads

Fornite absolutely nails it with its collaborations but our favourites have to be the fashion or sneaker brand links. Whether you’re talking about the Fortnite x Ralph Lauren collection that added a touch of Llama or the hilariously controversial Balenciaga collaboration that launched with $600 black and white t-shirts, they know how to ruffle some feathers and make some noise.

The game’s latest collaboration with Nike might be our favourite yet, taking the idea of Air Max to new heights (literally) with a floating city, Airphoria, that features venues like “Station 97,” “Shoebox Tower,” and “Museum Max.” All of which have plenty of missing Air Max Grails to uncover.

If you want to visit Airphoria, type in the island code; 2118-5342-7190.

There’s a host of new items being added to the Item Shop in time for the Nike x Fortnite Airphoria island, this includes ‘Airie’ and ‘Maxxed Out Max’ Outfits that are now available as part of the Airphoria Pack. The pack also includes the Pure Sole Boombox and Maxx Stacks Back Blings.

Individual items include the ‘That Ice Pickaxe’, ‘Maxx Axe Pickaxe’, ‘Maxx Drop Glider’, and ‘Keep ‘Em Crispy’ emote that’s also available individually or as part of the ‘Airphoria Gear Bundle’, which additionally includes the ‘Air Wave Emoticon’, ‘Maxx Volume Spray’, and ‘Airphoria Loading Screen’.

Those who don’t want to fork out some real-life money for VBUCKS can pick up the Air Max 1 ’86 Back Bling starting 28 June, 2 pm AEST for playing 10 minutes of game time on the special island.

If you’re looking to play the Fortnite x Nike Airphoria event, you’ll have to be quick. It’s running from now until June 27, 2023, at 8 PM ET. And a reminder, use the island code 2118-5342-7190. Finally, those who link their Epic Games and Nike accounts between June 20 at 12 PM ET and June 27 at 8 PM ET will be able to claim an Achievement on .SWOOSH by August 8, 2023.
