Simplicity is a concept tough to grasp when creating a Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke, but here’s a look at the latest creation to come out of the 21 Mercer studios – a Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke, designed by Aron Dayar, inspired by the Houston Astros. Simple is key, as the basic black upper is matched with a white swoosh and heeltab, but take a closer look and you’ll see contrasting materials of wool and diamond-embossed leather. The midsole takes on a solid grey with a translucent outsole, and the interior is lined with elephant print for an contrast to the tonal colorway. The slightest hints of orange are seen on the uppermost lace eyelet, the first ‘A’ on the AIR insignia, and a unique tongue, which features nothing more than an orange star stitched on black leather.
