THE PRETTIEST NIKE’S I OWN
Shoes make me happy. Sneakers make my euforic. I can go on an on about how much I love sneakers, but I guess I’m not going to tell you anything you didn’t know yet then. But these sneakers in particular though.. They are hands down the prettiest kicks I own. They have been in my possession for a little while now, but I didn’t even dare to take them out for a spin and break them in so far (because: rain. Snow. Dirt. You get what I mean), so I thought they deserve their own little photo shoot, right?
What Nike says about them: “The NikeLab Air Force 1 Mid Men’s Shoe gives an iconic design the ultimate premium update with deluxe materials and the addition of Phylon cushioning for lightweight, flexible comfort. Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was named after Air Force One — the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionising the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the tarmac to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.”
What I would like to add: they’re just perfect. The Vachetta Tan colour is just about the right nude tone – not too pink, not too yellow – (yes, I’m a nitpicker like that), the leather (also on the inside!) is just perfect, it smells so good (ok, I get carried away a bit here), the finish is absolutely gorgeous.
I’m in love. I should have written a Valentine’s letter about them. Get yours here (if you’re lucky), but they’re amazing in all the other colours too.
