“This is how we take the old from new, the new to the old, the old from the new!” Yes we’re about to take you back….. Way back…… into time! Once again this week’s Thursday Throwback takes us overseas to the UK’s JD Sports. Last week’s throwback showcased a predominantly white AF1 with high end materials, as you can see this week’s throwback shares some similarities. The above AF1 released in the Spring of 2004 and provided collectors with a perfectly color blocked low top to start the season off right. The JD Sports wizards of colorways and materials decided to adorn this AF1 with supple pebbled white leather and loads of nubuck. The swooshes are a perfect shade of medium grey and while they are nubuck they terminate at a matching pebbled leather heel tab. The side panels and toebox are perfectly balanced with midnight navy nubuck with matching midsole stitching. The embroidered accents use a rare color of blue that Nike calls photoblue. This bright aqua-like accent adds just the right amount of flare to this perfectly balanced sneaker. This sneaker earned the nickname “Cowboys” as its colorway is suspiciously similar to the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. Leave to the brits to honor U.S. Football the right way, go figure! Once again for those who began collection after JD Exclusives were all the rage, “step your game up!” and GET SOME! But good luck finding this particular pair as classics like this are surely recognized by throngs of OG Collectors who dare not let loose their grasp of these beauties.
