nike air force 1 year of the rabbit

i've shown you my af-1 year of the horse kicks previously

and my pair of year of the monkey af-1's

last week i showed off my rare year of the dog editions...

so now let me introduce you to this year's model. the year of the rabbit.
they were originally to be an asia only release but supposedly there were 
quite a few pairs released in new york too.

so here they are...
the tip, the eye stay, the tongue and the foxing are in premium soft white leather.

they come fitted with waxed blue laces, but also have a spare set of white and red
the sock liner and trim of the tongue are in blue so i'm sticking with blue laces.

the mid panel is in a white luxurious suede
the swoosh is in red chenille on the outer side of each shoe, and blue chenille on the instep.
these bad boys sit on an ice white sole with red nike air details.

the insole is a specially printed year of the rabbit design
with 2011 and a few swooshes thrown in.

in place of nike air and the swoosh, the heel tab has a rabbit

no nike branding on the tongue tab either...
it has been replaced by a red chenille tab with white stitching which i'm guessing
denotes the year of the rabbit.

the toe box is also in the white suede and the dubres are engraved with 2011
maybe it would have been a nice gesture to have spare dubres in red and white ?

all in all these are a problem
bringing heat to the streets of n7

like a boss !
