my final pair of air force 1's of 2011 turned up yesterday.
the tip, toe box, mid panel, foxing, heel tab, heel strip, tongue and eye stays
are all constructed from the limited edition boot leather that nike were
offering for december 2011.
i ran with the olive green boot leather throughout, sitting on a grey midsole and gum out.
old gold laces and a white / olive tongue tab
pale grey sock liner ( as neither olive green and old gold were an option... grrr ! )
olive green stitching for the nike air and swoosh would have been handy
but it wasn't, so i figured black was the best option available.
the quality of these is incredible. it's a tough yet soft, waxed leather. perfect.
and i think going with a light grey midsole rather than white was a good call.
the gum outsole goes without saying.
all in all, these bad boys are just the thing for winter in n7
i'd better start wearing them now though, because pretty soon i'm going to
be somewhere hot, hot, hot... sitting in the sun like a boss !
oh i'm sorry... did i not mention my forthcoming holiday ?
