Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke: The “AACG Bespeaux” by Aaron Kr.

September 9, 2013 BY / 7

Nike’s Air Force 1 Bespoke program provides the ultimate sneaker customization experience, going well beyond the achievable limits of Nike iD. The Bespoke design studio at 21 Mercer offers up hundreds of different color and material choices that can be mixed and matched to your every whim and applied to each different panel of the shoe. There are pretty much no restrictions on what you can do to your shoe, and that’s what makes it not only the most premium sneaker customization opportunity available, but also any sneaker aficionado’s dream come true. While the lofty price for a pair of Bespokes is nothing to sneeze at, the chance to have a shoe that you design from scratch actually produced by Nike is hard to top, and it doesn’t hurt that the shoe is the Air Force 1 Low, one of the most timeless and iconic silhouettes in sneaker history.


It’s not often here at Sneaker News that we write stories from the first person, but what better excuse could there be than a Bespoke. I’ve whipped up my share of Nike iDs over the years, including some AF1s, but had really only daydreamed of taking the actual plunge into Bespoke territory. Some stars aligned and the time finally came to step up to the plate, but after scheduling the appointment, the reality set in that now I had to come up with a color/material layout worthy of Bespoke status. You’ll see what I eventually arrived at in the pages that follow, but we also thought it would be fun to bring you along for the ride by taking you through the thought and design process. Keep reading for the inside story on my Air Force 1 “AACG Bespeaux”, and contact Nike’s 21 Mercer store in NYC if you’re ready to bring your own vision to life.
