ATTENTION TO DETAILS....
I'm not a big fan of AF1s, but here's a fresh pair that has some seriously DOPE details. Pay attention!!!
"Berlin based artist Feride Uslu (and his own brand: Uslu Airlines), well known for his quality air brushing has worked with everybody from the good folks at colette to Bernhard Wilhelm. This collaboration with Nike for an AF-1 HI was inspired by airplanes, note the sheep skin lining reminiscent of old school fighter plane jackets. The green tongue, an homage to the green signals normally found on airport control towers, the yellow tongue, straight off airport security vests, the pink laces replicate parachute cords, topped off with a reflective 3M Nike check and airplane seat belt-like top strap."
