Is this a possible Air Force 1 High of the future? Here’s a first look at the Nike Trainer Clean Sweep – an upcoming Holiday 2012 NSW release that borrows the trademark architectural styles of Bruce Kilgore’s Air Force 1 High; it features a super-high tongue and a slimmed-down silhouette that pinpoints the current trends of high-top, tongue-out sneakers, but there’s no denying the AF1 DNA here. These four lifestyle-driven colorways feature clever mixes of materials and colors, like the brown-toed version with the glossy black detailing and the Navy blue pair with the metallic silver swoosh and yellow outsole. We’ve got individual shots of each below so take a look and let us know what you think!
looking forward to trying a pair on...reserve my judgement til then,I do like the high top tho,kinda android homme- Rick Owens like,buth with better tech im sure.
Looking like those greedy genius vaders from a couple years back. Way to bite Nike, way to bite.... http://sneakernews.com/2008/10/23/greedy-genius-c...
these might not look that bad with some jeans covering up that hooker boot-esque high upper. I like the color arrangement.
Use to when JB would released crap we could blame Gentry. Can't do that anymore, but we can sure blame him when NSW does. Good job, Gentry, for staying par for the course. LOL!
