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.

Last month for my birthday I was taken to Nike’s 21 Mercer shop for an ID session as a birthday present from Joci. I have a huge obsession with suede and especially grey suede. The bye product of this birthday trip and present was these tonal grey suede Nike Air Force 1 with a teal leather tongue and gum outsole. My goal was to keep it simple and clean with a subtle pop of color. I’m very thankful to Joci for the birthday gift and the crew at 21 Mercer for being so helpful while I made these.
