Check Out Sneaker Freaker Founder Woody’s Nike By You Air Force 1 ‘Green Lotus’!
Sneaker Freaker head honcho Woody has a particularly soft spot for the Nike Air Force 1. With a hangar filled with myriad Uptowns ranging from triples of old favourites to more than a few one-of-nones already in the stash, the tally has just increased by (Air Force) one. Freshly delivered is this minty fresh colourway created via the Nike By You program (formerly known as Nike iD).
Christened the ‘Green Lotus’ – a moniker plucked from the creative writing contest hosted by Woody's Instagram comments section – these AF-1s are an exercise in ‘less is more’. This sensible approach is defied with the unorthodox colour clash of strawberry red garnish atop mint toothpaste – they sure look tasty, but don’t eat them!
On the material front, Air aficionados will appreciate the bump in textural quality. The ‘Green Lotus’ blooms from a clean tumbled leather and flat twill mix, paired to the period-correct specification of a nylon tongue – an option previously long absent from the Nike By You AF-1 program.
As Woody remarks, ‘I was not just pleasantly surprised, I was totally chuffed! The materials are first class all round and the quality is perfecto.’ Sat atop a solid white sole, these fresh Forces are finished with silver Swooshed dubraes, threaded through laces that are, of course, kept loose.,
P.S. ‘Squashed Frogs’ narrowly missed out as a nickname.
