When it comes to sneakers and footwear we all have our favorite “Ride Or Die” pairs that we wear on a consistent basis. Going into making this pair of Bespoke Air Force One’s I was inspired by the few days leading up to the appointment. This bespoke was inspired by the Jordan 3 black/cement and the Jordan 11 “Spacejam” which are the two pairs I wear consistently no matter what, whether it’s to chill, run errands or party. The sunglasses and Advil part was inspired by the EPIC Nigel Sylvester Birthday party at the penthouse of Hotel on Rivington NYC which gave me the only headache/hangover the next morning which inspired the use of cement print symbolizing the head crack I had. Now I’m adding this pair to my “Ride or Die” pairs.

A few Pictures of the madness that was Nigel Sylvester’s birthday party. A definite “Sunglasses And Advil” kind of night.

Looks like another salmon colored Asics will be coming out from the ongoing and well executed collabs between Asics and Ronnie Fieg. This time we get two images from both Ronnie Fieg’s Instagram as well as Theophilus London’s. Both pictures show use of different shoelace colors and both look equally dope. This time unlike “Salmon Toe” Gel Lyte III’s instead of the toe it’s the whole sneaker that’s covered in a salmon colored suede or nubuck. Summer sneaker for sure.

UPDATE: via Ronnie Fieg’s Blog

A release date is upon us, thisFriday, March 2nd, 2012 at 11a.m. EST the Rose Gold will release for $130 USD.

As a “sneakerhead” custom making a pair of sneakers with the materials and colors of your choosing is a dream, so as a birthday gift I decided to indulge in the Nike AF1 Bespoke program. I decided to go with a colorway that reminded me of a Hawaiian sunset and also the Nike Air Yeezy tan colorway. The amazing Iz at 21 Mercer helped with the whole process and helped make this sneaker a reality he also sketched a quick AF1 along with the colors and materials in a “blueprint” style. The end result is this.
