nike air force 1 i.d's

here are the other pair of i.d's i designed a few weeks ago.
you can almost feel the heat trying to get out of the box can't you ?

and here they are
the tip, the toe box, the eye stay the mid panel and the foxing are all in
a claret coloured luxury suede. the tongue is in pale blue leather.

the swoosh is in a pale blue suede ( these are pretty much west ham colours )
the shoe sits on a sail midsole with claret stitching and trim
and of course, a gum bottom

laces are a rich yellow... maybe an old gold colour
i opted to have the tips in gold rather than silver

the sock liners are in claret
with the special i.d. insoles

the heel tabs are in pale blue suede
with the same colour stitching on the nike air and swoosh
as you may know, i prefer the heel tabs to be blank and this was the closest
i could get to achieving that.

the hang tag is in gold with claret suede
representing n7

i got the spare laces in the same colour blue as used on the shoes
i'm not sure which laces to go with to be honest but once they're laced
the way i like them these are going to be a big on the streets of n7 this season.

so there you have it. if you like what i've done with these two pairs let me know.
and if you fancy a go at designing some kicks for yourself, why not 
check out the nike id website or better still make an appointment at niketown
london and design yourself some af-1's

  1. theses trainers remind me of a good old football song:

    "chim chim-in-ey, chim chim-in-ey
    chim chim cher-oo!
    we hate them ***ts in the claret & blue!"
