Though bright colors and piercing whites aren’t the norm for fall footwear, Nike has gone against the grain, delivering both on this grade-school-sized release. Starting out on a classic white leather upper, this release rocks alternate-color Swooshes on the lateral and medial sides in orange and hot pink, respectively. But that’s not the only Check marks in attendance, with two extra embroidered icons on both sides. These feature in magenta and gold on the outside wall, while teal and champagne cover the inner. Then, there are aqua liners, special tongue tags, and sole unit splattered with all the aforementioned colors to complete the design.
Barlos Pagan –
I wear af1 a lot from November through March. The quality of these is the best I’ve ever owned. The most important thing is the fit.
