Nike is releasing tons of Air Force 1′s this year, I guess you have noticed that by now …
So here is the AF1 Berlin pack! Sneaker Freaker did an interview with Hikmet (Solebox) about Berlin, the 80ies and these AF1′s of course. Unfortunately there are no details on the price and release date yet.
Read the interview at Sneaker Freaker.
plus41 finally made these Mini Choco White AF1′s available to the public … but you’ll probably think about it twice before you eat a pair, they cost €30 for 3 pairs.
“Classic” is new track produced by Rick Rubin featuring Kanye West, Nas, Rakim and KRS-One, dedicated to the 25th year anniversary of Nike’s Air Force 1. I’m curious how much Air Force 1′s they got from Nike to do this …
Anyway this DJ Premier remix is dope!
In 2003, Nelly had a video called “Air Force One”, MTV refused to play it as they considered it advertising. So I guess we won’t see “Classic” on MTV either.
Nike is opening up the whole Air Force 1 iD thing. You can go to this website and design your Air Force 1 Low, the only hook is that you won’t be able to buy one unless you have a password. After adding your design to your shopping cart you will be able to sign up for a password. I really don’t have a clue on which base they will decide if you will get a password. Anyway it’s fun to play around with the Nike iD website! On the left you can see my try at it …
Today was Nike iD Studio day! Yay!
As soon as I found out that Nike would have the Air Force 1 Supreme Low at their iD Studios, I knew I wanted to do one. Especially with those material and color options it was a real no-brainer.
Everytime you design a sneaker on Nike iD, it’s a little like baking a cake. You pick the ingredients and hope that they will blend together and then you shove it in the oven. And then it bakes … you’ll have to be patient … it can take weeks … In the end you’ll be happy like a little kid!
White is the first color this season at the Nike iD Studio. White is not just white, there’s white, off white and antique white. Combine those with different materials (Weave, Crinkle, Ostrich, Diamond Weave, Dodo Bird, Basketball, Iguana, Cross Hatch, Pig Skin, Crocodile, Smooth, Pebbled, Patent, Kangaroo, Nubuck, Suede and Real Deal) you’ll get tons of possibilities … choices choices choices.
I decided to go with an all Antique White one. Here is a crappy picture of the screen at the iD Studio.
Base material: Antique White Cross Hatch
Secondary material: Antique White Weave
Accent material: Antique White Patent
Lining, laces, sidewall and sidewall stitching: Antique White
Thanks to Michael, right?, for his time and the mag!
So that’s the start of Nike iD 2007!
And what’s up next?
Premium Dunk high and lows.
The Air Force 1 Supreme Low will get a color treatment and thereafter an all black palette.
After the jump you will find some pictures of samples.
