Culture Influencer: Air Force One's July 30 2016, 0 Comments

Something most serious sneaker collectors from the late 90's into the mid 00's will tell you is how coveted the Nike Air Force One used to be. Instead of Nike pumping releases every weekend (Find A 2007 Release Calendar) the culture has shifted to Nike creating themes and pumping out subpar signature sneakers. The Nike Air Foamposite is a prime explain which has the seen the release of a few not so sought after colorways i.e. spiderman, thermal, yeezy, asteroids, etc. As a tribute to that golden age of AF1's this blog entry will be showcasing 3 very cool incredibly limited pairs that just happened to find their way into our store this week. 

Quest Love:

Much like the man himself Quest Love's air force 1's are bold, and definitely catch looks from those they pass. The biggest difference is that Mr. Quest gathers attention from his huge afro and the sneakers, while sporting a much smaller afro on their tongue, catch most of their looks from the electric green elephant print that adorns the midsoles. 

Doernbecher AF1's:

Nike's DB collection is always one of the most anticipated collaborations of the year due to their charitable cause and creative designs. That reputation continues to ring true for this very special pair of Nike's. The vibrant green paired with visually pleasing geometric patterns topped off by exciting 3m accents. One thing is for sure, these are for those real collectors out there.

"Year of the Dragon" III:

To the untrained eye, these may look like a slightly fancier white/white air force one's (not that that's a bad thing). But, if you take a more careful look, you'd discover that these are so much more! From the subtle scales covering the shoe to the whimsical artwork on the insoles I guarantee just as many, if not more, details are on this shoe as any premium Jordan, Yeezy, or collaboration ASics shoe you can think of.
