sn select collections afrokix cover SELECT Collections: AFROKIX

Within the world of sneakers, there are so many different options for consumers to choose from. There are countless brands, categories, genres, and sub-genres, and on and on it goes, so for many of us, it can seem overwhelming at times. Especially nowadays, with the culture flourishing like never before, it’s harder than ever to decide what to spend your sneaker dollars on. But for some collectors, the decision isn’t as hard as you might think. Amidst the infinite landscape of footwear choices, sometimes that one brand or category or even a model can emerge from the masses to speak to us in a way that no others do and become the focus of our attention.

There are plenty of sneaker connoisseurs out there who have a specific affinity for a certain silhouette or brand, going to great lengths to hunt down any and all make-ups of the shoe that they love above all the rest. In many of these cases, it’s the usual suspects in terms of brands and models. We’ve seen plenty of collectors who specialize in Air Jordans, SB Dunks, LeBrons, PEs,

but the granddaddy of them all might just be the legendary Air Force 1. Originally introduced in 1982, the Nike Air Force 1 is one of the most beloved models of all-time and was one of the first “collectible” sneakers in the sense that even back in the early ’80s, people would hunt all over for that hard-to-find colorway that no one around their way had.

Over the years, countless sneaker enthusiasts have fallen under the AF1′s charms and there are a substantial amount of collectors around the world who can boast quite the arsenal. But with so many colorways and variations released over the last 30+ years, it would be a nearly impossible feat to accumulate every pair in existence, making each AF1 aficionado’s personal collection unique unto itself. In the case of Los Angeles-based Afrokix, he might not have them all, but he’s damn sure got most of the good stuff covered. We recently had a chance to check out his incredible spread of treasures, so click ahead for a look at one of the most impressive Air Force 1 collections you’ll ever see.
