When that promising display popped up at 21 Mercer featuring the guarantee of a few more special Nike Air Force 1 releases in 2012, there was plenty of speculation to be had, with the suggestive names leading folks to dream up possibilities. The ‘Presidential’ pair seemed at first like a possible election year tie-in, but it looks as if Nike has instead swerved around that with a sort of no-brainer, taking it back to the place where the sneaker got its name in the first place. Shown here is the Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Presidential’, a rather shiny pair that gets its patriotic colorway from the real Air Force One, the air traffic control designated fleet of vehicles for the President of the United States. More specifically it’s a nod to SAM 27000, the second Boeing model created for our Commander in Chief. Click through to get the full photo and stick with Sneaker News for release info.
What I don't get is why it's called the Air Force Bday, am I stupid or did that not get explained here at all?
I like it when there's a story behind a shoe or when there's a connection to something else but the shoes still have to look good at the end of the day and that's not the case here imo.
i can make better color ways of nike air force 1's and other shoes,cause this is not a good looking nike air force 1 at all.
@Jumpfan23 i agree, these are fresh, fuck the haters
