The legendary Nike Air Force 1 is an unparalleled phenomenon on the global scale and our friends in Japan are just as smitten with the supreme-tier Air Force 1 Bespoke experience as fanatical followers here in the U.S. We’ve seen countless Bespoke creations from the land of the Rising Sun, and you can bet the limited Bespoke reservations at Nike Harajuku last year were scooped up with the quickness. MC Mickey took part in the Bespoke process when it was available in Japan and couldn’t resist a visit to New York City for another session. We’ve come to notice that animal prints are a widely popular choice of material on the other side of the hemisphere, as seen again here in this latest design by MC Mickey of Japan.
He selects synthetic zebra hair on the front end of the shoe with high-grade Mostrotto Patent on the heel and some complementary pink Coast Nubuck Calf accents on the Swoosh, interior lining and tongue. MC Mickey’s Bespoke is finished off with personalized laser-etchings on the heel and lace dubrae, completing yet another distinct final product unique from any others we’ve laid eyes on. We’ve got more shots of MC Mickey’s Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke below, so take a look and if you’re ready for your own Bespoke adventure, you can make your appointment now at Nike Sportswear’s 21 Mercer store in NYC.
