Speaking from a personal perspective, when it comes to choosing a new pair of sneakers there is nothing quite like the experience of shopping in a Nike id studio. Apart from, that is, a visit to 21 Mercer and the creation of bespoke AF1's.
Well if you know anything about 21 Mercer you will know that when choosing colorways and materials the choice was pretty much unlimited.
These choices have now been made a little more difficult with the introduction of a new palette inspired by the team colours of basketball squads from '82 (the year the AF1 was introduced.) Along with these new colour options original materials such as full grain leather, soft genuine suede leather and heritage mesh are new additions to 21 Mercers make ups.
The AF1's here were created by the team at Nikes flagship.
