i got a buzz from reception yesterday afternoon...
"mark, package has arrived for you... looks like trainers"
a few minutes later i was staring at this box.
standardly i took a photo of this with my phone and sent it to my mate neil.
( it's what's known in the game as 'the tease' )
another tease ? my pleasure
by now you've seen the title of this post so you can probably anticipate...
that's right. the limited edition material for the month of april was safari print.
i used a similar method to how i treated the limited edition elephant print...
no subtle touches for me, just all over safari print.
( those laces are going to need sorting out by the way )
talking of laces, i opted to have the dark brown laces fitted with gold tips
gold dubres too
here's a close look at the safari print material
it's funny stuff. leathery but with a soft almost suede finish
i chose not to have contrast stitching by the way... i didn't want to make these
too lairy after all !
i got the lining and heel tab stitching in dark brown to match the laces
and to make the nike air and swoosh merge into the pattern as much as possible
i was debating if i should choose a white midsole with a gum out
but i'm not a fan of a white mid to be honest so i picked a dark brown midsole
with a gum outsole
dark brown stitching on the midsole
dark brown trim too
all in all i think these are perfect for summer ( if we ever get one )
as ever, the final touch is a gold tag with brown leather inlay.
