I recently had the privilege of working with my friend iZ at 21 Mercer to create my own version of an AF1. It's become common practice these days to create your own Nike's, so I wanted to do what I could to separate this pair from the rest. I started by bringing in all of my own fabrics. Every fabric we used, excluding the sole and laces, are fabrics from our original Classified Collection as well as our collaboration project with Boylston Trading Co. They include 1680D ballistic nylon, lycra coated neoprene, 1000D TPE for the swoosh and lace holes, and even our webbing is used on the tongue. These shoes are crazy comfortable too, as the entire interior of the shoe is lined with neoprene.
This being my first pair of custom Nike's, I also decided to take it up a notch by having my man Jonathan Mannion shoot them for me. Here's what we came up with.
