Air Force 1
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Air Force 1, Nike created this AF1 Popsicle mold. Apparently during the development stages of Nike‘s Lunarlon sole, designers from Nike Innovation Kitchen stabilized the mold by freezing it. In case you forgot, Nike just put a Lunar sole on an Air Force 1.
We showed you a preview of this upcoming Supreme X Nike collaboration a couple months ago. Now we have some much more detailed pics of these highly anticipated Air Force 1’s. The AF1’s are constructed out of NYCO fabric, an extremely durable and water-resistant fabric. Three colors are available – black, olive and camouflage.
Apparently, Layupshot is just going crazy with the Bespoke Air Force 1’s lately. This is the third pair I’ve seen from him in the last month. This time around he pays tribute to Ray Allen, and judging by the colorway it’s from his time spent with the Milwaukee Bucks. I like the way these ones turned out.
These kicks don’t look right now that Steve is in LA playing for the Lakers, but they are still pretty dope. These were done through the Air Force 1 Bespoke program at 21 Mercer.
It looks like Supreme and Nike have hooked up once again for what’s sure to be another highly sought after release. This time around, Supreme chose the Air Force 1 as their canvas. The upper is constructed from CORDURA which is a military-grade fabric known for its durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. These AF1’s will be available in 3 colorways — Olive, Black, and Camo.
Layupshot.com recently hooked up with Nike Sportswear to make a pair of Bespoke Air Force one’s dedicated to Paul Pierce. I’m not too familiar with that website but they designed some dope shoes. The white/green AF1’s feature a premium leather upper, baseball stitching, and a cork sole. Paul’s number, 34, is stitched on the side of the shoes and the heel tabs read “PP” on one shoe and “7/21M” on the other. Unfortunately these are a 1-of-1.
There have been several Gold Medal inspired releases as of late, but this my favorite so far. The Team USA Gold Medal edition AF1’s pay homage to Team USA’s Gold medal performance in the Olympics. Besides the white/gold colorway, these kicks are rumored to feature a pull tab on the heel which you can hook onto a striped ribbon accessory that comes with the shoes, allowing you to hang them around your neck like an actual gold medal. Only Nike.
Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki was the recipient of this special Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke designed by Nike iD designer Israel Matteo. Nike Sportswear presented the AF1’s to Dirk in a hand-made wooden box built constructed out of actual wood from an NBA court. The kicks are an ode to the NBA Championship Dirk won last year. Do you think the Mavs got what it takes to win it again this year?
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Air Force 1, Nike is releasing these Camo AF1 Max VT’s. The limited edition kicks feature Nike’s Max Air sole and Vac Tech (VT) technology, as well as a camouflage colorway. The Camo AF1 Max VT will be released at 21 Mercer on April 20th. The price tag is set at $200.
We got some good news for all you sneakerheads out there. Starting April 1st the Safari print option will be available on NIKEiD. Besides the Cement print, the Safari print is probably the most iconic silhouette offered by NIKE. The Safari design option will only be available for a limited amount of time so you better act quick if you are trying to get your hands on a pair. Check out the NIKEiD website for all the details.
It’s been awhile since we have featured any Bespokes on the site but today we have a brand new pair designed by French sneakerhead, Haroun R. Tazieff. The custom Air Force 1’s are constructed from primarily tan leather which is complimented nicely by turquoise lizard skin on the heel and light blue suede on the Swoosh. Props to Haroun. These turned out really nice.
Not that material items like these should outshine the meaning behind Black History Month, but you do see some pretty dope product drops this month usually. This is a pack from Nike featuring some of their dopest shoe models in a BHM theme. The pack will be available February 11th at select Nike Sportswear retailers.
If you haven’t heard Nike iD is adding the elephant print option to the AF1 model starting February 1st. They are only going to have 750 pairs available. So, if that’s something you’re wanting to add on your custom shoes you should get their fast. These are some samples for you to check out featuring the elephant print.
