i don't usually like to talk about the price of things on my blog
but with these af-1's i'll make an exception.
this year nike have been celebrating the 30th anniversary of af-1's
and have launched some really nice editions.
they have also taken the opportunity to charge extremely high prices
for a few of these editions. it seems like it's paid off for nike because
people are willingly paying the high prices and resellers are laughing.
it seems like there is now a massive gap between general release af-1's
and quickstrike limited editions in terms of price and materials used.
then last week i bought a pair that are just a general release
( in the usa anyway )
and are made from some very nice premium materials.
i swear if nike had put them in the special 30th anniversary box and used xxx
dubres on them, they could have sold them for £170 a pair and people
would have queued up overnight for them.
here they are.
ok they don't look that special but...
the outsole is glow-in-the-dark
and the midsole has glow-in-the-dark flecks on it with the stripe and air
in glow-in-the-dark too.
i have only ever seen this used on yeezys before these
the rest of the shoes are in a dark blue leather
and they have decent dubres
no penny pinching on these. they look and feel like a top release
yet these cost me £56
