supreme x nike af-1

remember the supreme x nike af-1's i mentioned last week ?

they dropped on thursday morning. 
people queued overnight in the cold, supreme's website crashed
and all of a sudden the supreme x nike air force one became the shoe
( i should have put 'the' in capital letters there but you know how i feel )

moving on... look what i've got.
that's right.

the whole of the upper, every piece is constructed from a camo patterned
nyco material. it's extremely durable and water resistant and used a lot
by the military.
the shoe sits on a white midsole and gum outsole.
textbook stuff.

just below the swoosh is the traditional red supreme box logo
as you can see, even the sock liner is in camo nyco material.

there's a nike x supreme tongue tab
and as you can see, i fitted these out with orange laces

the shoes were fitted with olive laces and came with spare sets of both black
and white. it's just that i thought orange would suit better so i slipped
in a pair from my big bag of spares.
the special supreme dubres are a nice touch. 
it's also good that they are in olive rather than the traditional silver.

the heel tabs have nike air swoosh stitched in black
which is fair enough i suppose.

and the insoles are in the traditional supreme red
with supreme and nike branding

all in all, probably one of my top ten shoes of 2012
also one of the top ten most difficult shoes to get / top ten rarest shoes.

i picked these up on thursday and wore them on friday.
sadly though, these are definitely a release i'd like to have another pair of...
you know... one to wear and one to keep on display.

then i looked on ebay and...

one pair is fine thanks.
