2012 was a crazy year for the sneaker game.
december was the craziest month of 2012
saturday 15th was craziest day in december.
on that day, nike released 30 new af-1's to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the shoe.
i took my business to footpatrol that day.
i like footpatrol.
it's a very stylish shop with friendly staff and it's close to my favourite coffee shops.
oh and the manager is from wales... what's not to like ?
they had a special display in footpatrol that day.
30 pieces made by a 3-d printer.
30 pieces all to do with my favourite shoe. the nike air force 1.
in the display cabinet. all made from a 3-d printer whatever that is.
he explained all about how the pieces were made...
... but it's kind of difficult to explain here.
