What’s the chance that Tony Baker is a big fan of early Air Jordans? With his utterly amazing new Nike Air Force 1 Low Bespoke, Baker takes us back to the late 80s by way of 1993, mixing ‘Aqua’, ‘Grape’ and ‘Cement’ into one cohesive design. As with all Bespokes brought to life at Nike Sportswear’s 21 Mercer St. flagship in NYC, the quality is immediately visible on the super rich nubuck toe. This area is a nice minty shade of green, practically begging for the purple hits on side panels, laces and heel tabs to come complete the Aqua/Grape look. And they can go either way, thanks to a white leather Swoosh and the cement grey elephant print that all at once adds depth and balance. Kudos to Tony for such a well thought-out design. Is this the best of all Bespoke Air Force 1s?
