It’s honestly been a while since a pair of AF1′s caught my eye. I’m still a staunch lover of the kicks but actually wearing them is a different story because of the lack of good color schemes being released. That said, the appeal of the two pictured here may be that they both rely on colorways and materials previously used.
The use of leather & woven canvas is a suave move, providing good contrast. The birch colorway brings to mind the Jones Beach joints from last summer (and maybe the Linens if you were around for those). The Lucky Greens can be traced back to the all-canvas joints with ice soles that were pretty tough to come by a year or two ago. I ended up with several pairs of those, a couple still on ice, otherwise I’d be clamoring for these.
Both of these are available now @ ExtraButter. Hit’em up.
