So after two days of inner turmoil and a conversation with Bowery Boy I've decided to write about the Shea White Air Force 1 Bespoke Yeezy.
I was initially drawn to these sneakers because of their interesting colorway inspiration, taken from a combination of the "Air Yeezy and Hawaiian sunsets". The grey/tan/hot pink combination is balanced well through the kicks and the use of tan boot leather on the toe box, mid section, eyelets and swoosh holds the kicks together really well.
Along with the colorway, an intriguing combination of materials in the form of boot leather, patent leather and premium suede also make for a pretty fascinating build. It's all too easy to overkill on this front as the options are seemingly endless at 21 Mercer, but this rich combination works well as a whole.
Highlights of peach and turquoise complete the make up and the snake skin branding on the heel section of the shoe subtly adds texture.
I have a love hate relationship with these and although I've been extremely undecided on them, they have been on my mind since I saw them. They could well be my guilty pleasure.
