Of the hundreds of Air Force 1 Bespokes we’ve seen, how many were directly inspired by consumer products? Joshua Slovin recently received not one, but two Bespoke creations he designed, one inspired by the high-end champagne Dom Perignon, and the other by Dutch Masters, which are easily attainable at any corner bodega. For the Dom Perignon design, Joshua imitated the luxurious bottle design, with custom heeltabs that print ‘Vintage 1984′, a likely call-out to Slovin’s birth year. The Dutch Master has a bit more of a rustic colorway, with an oat and brown upper mimicking the Dutch Masters box. Which of the two do you like better? Do you relate more to Dom Perignon, or to Dutch Masters? Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think.
This dude was in the Fresher Than Your Avrge Sneaker Battle a couple months back, The Don P pair is really SICK.....
This dude got eliminated in the first round by a pair of jeremy scott flaming wings!!!! Eventhough everyone thought he should of won!!! It was such a joke. They prob didnt kno what a bespoke was, rookie shit!
yeah clear alot of thought went into these from the cork tounges on the dons to the brown top eyelets and white swoosh underlay on the dutch masters...both make me wanna rock some khakis ahaha classy shit
this is what bespokes should be like, a well executed theme, you can tell that there was a lot of THOUGHT prior to showing up and just guess designing an $800 sneak. Slovadon, you truly did it the right way, thank you so much for showing us ALL how it is done. LIKE A BOSS...123123123
I'm diggin the luxury theme. The sleek and subtle Bespokes like these are usually the best ones, in my opinion.
I agree, love the theme, but its weird they chose Dutch Masters. Its some of the most expensive champagne with some of th cheapest cigars.. Dom P and Cohibas (or somethin like that) would be the way to go. Whats next the Cristal and Backwoods? Anyway they both r fresh as hell.
A glass of Dom P and a rolled up Dutch Master! Doesnt get any better than that. And by the way, no one buys Dutch Masters to actually smoke as a cigar, u clown!
Perfect execution on both pairs but I like the dutch Masters more, more color. But both are flawless. Good stuff mane.
