NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 2

For a fresh week of Classics Revisited, Sneaker News will revisit the Air Force 1 Low for a second time (simply because one pair of Forces per night for five days simply was not enough)! Right smack in the middle of the 2000’s, the Air Force 1 Low took a distinct turn; the shoe was made popular by earlier releases thanks to durable yet delicate leathers and suedes, but most of what came out of the Nike Sportswear production line featured patent leather galore. Kiwis, Easters, LeBron James Premiums, Scarfaces, Halloweens – all of these great Air Force 1 releases had ‘patent leather’ in common. Perhaps the most coveted of these shiny Air Force 1s is the ‘Houston Astros’ version; this particular pair, like the aforementioned models, utilizes the glossy patent leather on the upper in the colors of the Houston Astros throwback uniforms. The Houston Astros Air Force 1 Low was part of  Houston Tribute Pack that also included a Zoom LeBron III (Houston Oilers) and Air Zoom Kobe 1 (Houston Rockets). This limited edition set was never released and instead were handed out to VIPs during the 2006 NBA All-Star Game in Houston, TX. More of this amazing Air Force 1 Low below, so take a look and prepare yourself for another streak of awesome AF1 goodness!

good article but these were an easy pass in 06 and still are that year the Kiwis, Easter Eggs, Holloweens, pixie sticks, all shut these down.
