NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 3

Playing off yesterday’s feature of the ‘Scarface’ Air Force 1 Low is the ‘Halloween’ colorway that followed just a few months after that release. Halloween-inspired kicks have been a long-standing tradition for the Nike Air Force 1 Low, but this colorway stands out with the similar two-toned color-blocking in patent leather and the ghoulish logo placed on the heel, tongue, and insole. Like yesterday’s release Scarface release, these don’t command nearly as much some of the heavy-hitting Air Force 1s we’ve previously featured on Classics Revisited, but of the Halloween releases, these might be the best! Check out a gallery below and stay tuned for a new chapter of Classics Revisited next week.

scarface nike sneakers Classics Revisited: Nike Air Force 1 Low Scarface (2006)

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 3

Every hip-hop artist’s favorite gangster’s favorite movie is Scarface, starring Al Pacino, an M16 assault rifle, and a whole lot of confectioners sugar. In 2006, Nike Sportswear released one of the most polarizing Air Force 1 colorways with the ‘Scarface’ tribute, which featured the most alternative color-blocking ever done on a sneaker. Basically the sneaker was chopped in half with a White/Black colorway, going entirely white on the lateral sides and black on the medial (even the tongue label) to match the iconic Scarface movie poster. While these don’t have the massive drawing power as some of the earlier Air Force 1s featured on Classics Revisited, these deserve a spotlight for its unique design! More of the Scarface after the jump, so take a look and let us know what you think.

Classics Revisited: Nike Air Force 1 Low “Cocoa Snake” (2001)

cocoa snake air force 1 Classics Revisited: Nike Air Force 1 Low Cocoa Snake (2001)

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 3

The recent unveiling of the ‘Snakeskin’ colorway of the newly build Nike Air Force 1 Low Downtown reminds us of another AF1 banger – this Premium-grade build dubbed the ‘Cocoa’. The Air Force 1 re-issues were traditionally build with tougher materials like leather and suede until this amazing Japan-exclusive surfaced, with the cocoa brown colored luxurious material being matches with a basic White/Black colorway. In 2005, an unofficial ‘Retro’ of the Air Force 1 Low ‘Cocoa’ emerged, but with a different snakeskin pattern and a reversed Black/White upper. Forgot about these heaters? That’s what Classics Revisited is for! More of the Cocoa Snake after the jump.

2005 mr cartoon nike air force 1 los angeles Classics Revisited: Mr. Cartoon x Nike Air Force 1 Low (2005)

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 3

Very few individuals can boast the levels of success achieved by Mark “Cartoon” Machado. Mr. Cartoon, recognized for his intense graffiti and impeccable fine-line style of tattoo artwork, went from air-brushing t-shirts and cars at the age of 12 to being one of the most sought-after tattoo artists in the industry. The man is representative of all-things Mexican-American culture in Los Angeles, staying true to his heritage while forging a distinct, award-winning style of artistry that’s been sought after by the hardest of thugs to the most well-respected of international brands.

Mr. Cartoon worked with Nike in the early-mid 2000′s, completing a series of Air Force 1 designs that paid homage to the city of Los Angeles; each of his designs featured the fine, pinstripe-style brush strokes, but one pair in particular that stands out above the rest is the LA Dodgers-inspired “Blue Tattoo” release. It featured navy and grey with spider-web detailing on the toe-box, a graffiti-style LA embroidery on the heel, and several other graphics that made these one of the most sought after Air Force 1s of all-time (the insanely-rare Hyperstrike version commands nearly $2,000 in the open market). In addition, this design was later revived in 2009 as part of LIVESTRONG capsule of these highly-regarded Air Force 1s. Continue on for a look at this legendary Air Force 1 Low for tonight’s Classics Revisited and stay tuned for more AF1s on the following days!

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 2

Closing out this week of Classics Revisited isn’t one particular pair of the Air Force 1 Low, but a concentrated capsule of Forces that pay tribute to five countries competing in the 2006 World Cup. Each pair was designed with the trendy patent leather materials, color-blocked to match South Korea, Brazil, Holland, Mexico, and Portugal. Each Air Force 1 of the World Cup Pack featured a custom insole that displayed imagery of each country’s football kit, and inside each box was a small booklet detailing the teams of the 2006 World Cup. 2006 saw plenty of Football-themed releases, like the Japan Club Kashima Antlers Pack and other country-specific Nike Dunk Lows. Nike iD also featured the five countries as part of the customizable options. We’ve got a look at the entire set of the 2006 World Cup Pack, so take a look and let us know which of the five you’ve got in your stash!

mita nike air force 1 Classics Revisited: mita x Nike Air Force 1 Low (2004)

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 2

Let’s go back to back features of Air Force 1 Lows designed by Japanese retailers by following yesterday’s Classics Revisited of the atmos x Nike Air Force 1 Low with this 2004 design my mita. At the point of its release, this Air Force 1 Low was among the most outrageous colorways ever created, but along with a visual distinction this mita design must be recognized for its supreme selection of materials. White leather toe-boxes were contrasted with the luxurious ostrich-skin toeguard, a dark black nubuck on the mid-panel, Swoosh, and lace-placket, a glossy patent leather on the heel, and one under-represented decision of Nike Dri-Fit on the interior lining completes this amazing design. The mita x Nike Air Force 1 Low is heralded as one of the greatest ever, and even Nike used the mita-bred colorway to create it’s own general release in 2006. Fortunately, deadstock pairs are available around $200-250 these days (an alternative to the $200 AF1-XXX releases that have been dropping every month or so).

atmos air force 1 Classics Revisited: atmos x Nike Air Force 1 Low (2001)

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK PART 2

It’s gotten pretty clear why the same names keep popping up in Classics Revisited collaborations. atmos, mita, Stash, Parra – these units of creativity are all responsible for building up that ‘specialty sneaker’ genre that made the sneaker game what it is today. Japan-based atmos continues to play a major role today with ongoing sneaker collaborations with various brands as well as a retail presence in multiple spots in the world, but it might’ve started with their Air Force 1 Low colorway of 2001. It’s about as basic as an Air Force 1 Low can get – a two-toned colorway in a history Navy/Grey ‘Georgetown’ colorway – but credit the amazing leather materials and the rather hidden surprise in the green insole to give these that kick. The atmos x Nike Air Force 1 Low is considered by many as one of the greatest AF1s of all-time, and considering the simplicity has yet to be duplicated in the same manner, these will continue to hold onto that distinction. More of the atmos x Air Force 1 Low is just ahead!
