Nike Air Trainer 1 (Denim)
UPDATE: Still one of our favourite Air Trainer 1s from 2015 thus far, if you still haven't copped a set yet Sneakersnstuff just landed stock, but don't expect them to stick around for long!
There is a certain feeling you get when your shooting hoops with the squad, not wanting to be that guy to let the team down you're doing your best crossover, cleanest through the legs – trying to keep it one hunnid in front of the homies – you see the opportunity to score but you got D heavy up in your grill. In an un-coordinated spasm of greatness, you hurl the ball at the ring from behind the arc, and somehow, god only knows how, that rock meteors down at the backboard, splashing all net, no steel. It's a pure, magical moment, and evokes instant adulation from the squad, but you know deep down there isn't a chance in hell you’re pulling off something that good again even if you tried. Being said, we got those feels for these Air Trainer 1s – these brain-benders double check every single box you would want to categorise them in; perfect panelling, sublime material choice, outstanding colourway – a flawless 10/10 on all accounts. We might even go as far as saying this is the nicest AT1 we've seen all year! Find pairs over at SNKRS now (ed's note: that B-Ball story seems to have questionable relevance now, brud, I'll leave it in for entertainment purposes).
