Nike recently put an end to the use of animal skins in its products, causing an adverse effect on some of its more premium-label sneakers. One such ‘victim’ of this change in policy was the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Made to Order’ Pack, a set of fourteen Air Force 1s partially constructed with dyed crocodile skin. Included in this rare, unreleased pack were seven white-based pairs and seven in black with the primary focus on the luxurious and now forbidden croc-skin material. Each pair was set to retail for $2,000, but Nike ultimately scrapped a release and the ‘Made to Order’ Pack was to be a legend that never saw the light of day. That is, until, Mayor, one of the biggest Air Force 1 connoisseurs in the world, got his hands on not one, not two, but all fourteen pairs from the set; he gives us a nice look at all fourteen pairs in a two separate videos so continue reading for a look at this extraordinary set of sneakers and let us know what you think.
