Few have created their own Bespoke Nike Air Force 1; even fewer have done it two or more times.
We don’t know what Steven Pinkerton does, but whatever it is it pays him well. He not only created 1 Bespoke Air Force 1 during a visit to Nike Sportswear’s 21 Mercer Street location, but two. At $820 a pop that’s $1640 between the two, which is equivalent to buying 10 Retro Jordan’s at $160 a piece.
The first of the two features a 100% royal blue suede upper, a trait that’s gotten it the nickname “Cookie Monster”. A perforated, peanut butter-colored leather lines the lining, which coordinates nicely with a gum sole. Furthermore, yellow appears on the insosles and backside of the tongue as a reference to the old Nike SB Dunk’s, and a white Swoosh sits at the top of the tongue.
The second pair is much more complex and includes a varsity of materials and colors. The shoes include faux-crocodile, saddle leather and Italian patent leather in a brown, tan and red colorway inspired by the Nike SB Dunk Low “Bison”. The upper sites above a Supreme sole unit with a brown-tinted translucent midsole and a gum outsole.
20 some odd photos of the sneakers follow below. Take a peek and let us know which of the two you like the best.
