Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke – New Options @ Nike Harajuku

bespoke chysanthemum 0 Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke   New Options @ Nike Harajuku

Japan’s Edo period was marked by an isolationist foreign policy, a fact that gives you a sense of just how far ‘collaboration’ has come in a relatively short section of human history.  Japanese artists created distinctive styles during that period, including Ito Jakuchu, a Buddhist-inspired 18th century painter known for natural depictions and especially his birds.  In conjunction with Airside Nippon for Tokyo Designers Week 2012, Nike Harajuku in Tokyo is offering some spectacular Jakuchu-inspired chrysanthemum-print floral Nike Air Force 1 Bespokes  for one week only starting today, so have a closer look below and let us know how they compare to the impressive ‘Linen x Sakura’ Bespokes we just saw last week.

Nike Zoom Speed Cage+ 3

When one thinks of Japanese-exclusive sneaker releases these days, images of the old days of the internet, extravagant special edition packaging and searching eBay in a frenzy come to mind.  But aside from the super-limited collabos and otherwise top-tier releases, the AP market has quite a few designs that US sneakerheads would be forced to import, perhaps most notably in the running range.  One example is the series pictured above in its third iteration, none of which have managed to make it Stateside over the past five years.  The Nike Zoom Speed Cage+ 3 AP would probably be a hit over here too thanks to a breathable, lightweight construction and the still relatively unique visible Zoom Air in the heels of a Chicago-style colorup.  You can click through to see more of this exotic foreign model, and let us know if this stars-and-lillies-emblazoned, asymmetrically-colored design is something you’d cop from a US Nike Running retailer, or if they’re better left to the patrons of Nike Harajuku in fashion forward Tokyo.

Nike LunarSpider 2+ LT – Spring 2012 Colorways

After a couple of collections centered around Japanese running clubs kicked off the Nike LunarSpider 2 last October, it’s almost like the rain came down and washed all the new colorways out.  But with spring approaching, the sun will rise to dry all the paths where you might want a lightweight runner with eye-grabbing style, and Tokyo’s Nike Harajuku just got three new colorways in stock that fit that bill perfectly.  Each pair uses a very similar colorblocking pattern, with white/red/black and yellow/blue/black coming through along with the addition of a black/silver/blue makeup for wide sizes.  These aren’t common at US retailers, but does their distinctive look and feather-light, super-breathable construction warrant an import?

Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke by T.Y.

‘TY’ has become synonymous with expressing gratitude in this world of tweets and TXT messages, and we’re betting the guy whose initials share those letters is pleased with his output from the Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke Experience’s latest tour of Tokyo, Japan.  T.Y.’s AF1 Bespokes don’t bear his name as many others have, the only lettering on these reserved for ‘AF-1′ on the tongue and what looks like an abbreviation for his home country on the right heel tab.  This relative lack of text ensures your attention is directed to the black magic patent leather that makes up the upper on these orange and yellow accented Bespokes, though the true standout feature might be that material’s contrast against the traditional gum brown sole we’re used to seeing more often paired with nappy suedes.  Click through so you can see more angles on these and let us know how they compare to the best Air Force 1 Bespokes we’ve seen from Nike Harajuku.

Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke by M.T.

In the world of Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke showoffs, we move from a model whose digi-camo print underlay was ostensibly designed to obscure them from sight, to another model that makes no bones about its desire to mimick a wild animal pelt.  This new AF1 Bespoke designed during the latest round of limited appointments at Tokyo’s Nike Harajuku was designed by someone named ‘M.T.’, whose initials show up on the iridescent patent leather heels of these insane Uptowns.  There’s also a couple of laser-cut ‘Mickey’ dubraes on the laces, but the animal you’re most likely to notice here isn’t a mouse but rather the cheetah-colored zebra horsehair that makes up most of the upper.  The rich purple suede Swooshes do a great job of bringing everything together; where would you rank them against the other Bespoke Air Force 1s we’ve seen of late?  Click through to see some more photos and leave a comment, and schedule your appointment with 21 Mercer today.

Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke by HDPN

The latest Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke showoff comes from the ultra-premium customization service’s latest tour of duty at Nike Harajuku in Tokyo, Japan.  That’s where a guy whose name might be confused with some kind of newfangled high definition video cable came through and crafted his pair with a pixelated ‘camo’ pattern that’ll do anything but fit in.  HDPN’s AF1 Bespokes start with that tonal boxy graphic in a range of oranges and browns, and uses that as a base upon which a variety of colors from the middle of the visible spectrum are added.  The colorway itself manages to be cohesive while the combination of camo and patent leather overlays is somewhat jarring; do these give you any ideas of what you can create after making an appointment with 21 Mercer in New York?  Click through for some more angles and stick with Sneaker News for the latest Bespoke Air Force 1s.
