nike air force 1 ( 30th anniversary editions )

last week i skulked over to 1948 to buy a pair of 30th anniversary edition air force 1's
they are pretty sweet and pretty clean.
the main material used is a black denim.

here you can see the tip and the toe box
the piping is black nubuck leather by the way.

the heel tab and heel strip are also in black nubuck leather
with the nike air and swoosh etched into it

the same material and tactic on the tongue tab
with the tongue itself finished in black denim, and black waxed laces

the waxed laces have white metal tips
and the shoes also have black metal eyelets

they come with special 30th anniversary dubres
i'm glad it's not the twentieth anniversary because kaws would get the right hump

the swoosh is in black nubuck and there's nubuck piping on all the joints
but perhaps the most interesting design aspect of these is the black denim midsole.
that's right... a denim mid... amazing !

finally, 30th anniversary insoles
and that about wraps it up.

more to come from the 30th anniversary of the air force 1 later this month.
