mexico edition nike air force 1's

i don't think i've shown you these before
i love the colours on these old boxes.
in fact if ever the colours are available, it's my intention to make a pair of i.d's
using orange, khaki, white and grey. they'd look good don't you think ?

anyway, inside this box are a pair of deadstock mexico edition af-1's
the upper is constructed using white, green and red patent leather.

a nice touch is the mexico detail on the tongue tab
white patent leather tongue and green laces, though these also came with red laces.

another tidy detail is the aztec style pattern on the insoles
and the 1970 style footballs

on the green patent leather heel tabs, the nike air and swoosh are stitched in red
white heel strips complete the rear of the shoe

oh, a nice detail on the inside of the tongue tab
mexico and a swoosh. nice padded tongue by the way.

the tip and the foxing are finished in white patent leather. the mid section
uses green patent leather.
and the swoosh is in red patent leather.

i think these are the only af-1's i own where the line and the air on the midsoles are in different colours
white midsole, white outsole.

and a last shoe detail
quilted white sock liners. these are maybe the most padded af-1's in my crate.

oh and they came with this key-fob thing

and a golden envelope containing some little stickers of the teams included in the
world cup af-1 collection
fair enough.

all in all these are a magic darts pair of air force 1's
bringing heat to the streets of n7
