I've had these for about 2 1/2 months now trust me there FIRE! the leather is crazy nice not some regular GR crap but SN fix your post man thats crazy how you gonna write he died in 2012 smh
Very nice AF1 but if the guy isn't going to die until October 2012, at least wait til dude has passed before you release the comemorative cw....
oh and another thing SN, Mr. John Franchise Strickland died in Oct. 2011 not "Oct. 2012".....I just thought about that, Oct. 2012 isn't even here yet smh, get it together SN!
All they did was put the "Breakfast" stamp on a pair of white gum bottom AF1's..All the old sneaker heads know that gum bottom AF1's are timeless classsic!
