Over the years, many dedicated AF1 appreciators have come forward to map out and execute a Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke design. Those who have stepped up to the challenge have each set out to create a supremely unique design that not only expresses individuality, but also allows each creator to leave their personal mark on the hallowed Air Force 1 legacy with their very own 1 of 1. This latest offering comes from Vandal-A, who we know as an indie producer of some of the best sneaker-related graphic tees the game has ever seen. Shifting over from tees to the Air Force 1 as his palette, he presents a tasty concept that seamlessly blends elements of two of atmos’s most legendary Air Max 1 releases (the “Safari” and “Viotech”). The shoe is brought to life through some tasteful color and material choices, using predominantly earth-toned leather, canvas and suede, while incorporating some never-done-before Bespoke details like the embroidered mini-Swoosh at the forefoot and the massive lasered ‘AIR’ on the cork heel. Sneaker News has a full detailed gallery of Vandal-A‘s Air Force 1 vision after the jump, so continue on for a better look and let us know what you think and where these stack up against some of the other memorable Bespoke creations we’ve seen.
