Paul Nguyen describes himself as relatively new to the sneaker game, having built a respectable collection of somewhere north of a hundred pairs.  But as you might expect from someone who makes rent as a nuclear medicine technologist -slash- photographer, Paul shares the sneakerhead-common characteristic of high attention to detail.  You can see this in the blog he created to show off his burgeoning love and particularly in Nguyen’s latest Nike Air Force 1 Bespokes.

The story goes that his parents required some kind of disciplined activity of young Paul so he chose scouting over martial arts or piano lessons.  Having seen the dope camo Bespokes from the ATF crew in recent weeks, he wanted to craft something similar but discovered that Mayor himself had provided the Gore-Tex  material, so Paul had to go in another direction to celebrate his scouting roots.  Looks like that was all for the best, though, cos even if he didn’t get the pair he first imagined, dude’s Bespokes are quite simply one of the best we’ve seen here on Sneaker News.

Their upper is entirely khaki waxed canvas with the olive green sockliner paired to match the scout uniforms he grew up wearing, plus purple on the Swoosh underlay and heel tab to echo the troop’s emblem.  Natural cork Swooshes subtly further this outdoorsy theme and Paul finished the design with “Gum bottoms because gum bottoms on anything is FIRE!”  We totally agree with you, Paul, and props for a job very well done.  More photos follow the jump so click through to see some additional angles and let us know how these compare to the other Air Force 1 Bespokes we’ve profiled, then set an appointment at 21 Mercer to make your own.
