Air Force Ones available on NikeiD

Posted by samplekickz on 28 February, 2007

nike-id-air-force-ones-1.jpg

Our prayers have been answered – Air Force 1 lows are now available on NikeiD.com.  For a few years, one was blessed to receive a 255 Studio invite where they could make their own Air Force One mid.  Only Nike VIPs had the privilege of the ability to make low cut Air Force Ones, but now NikeiD has invited many members of the public to make their own Premium Air Force Ones.

Though the shoes are available online, you do need a special invite.  Regardless of whether you received the invite or not, head over to this special section of NikeiD to cook up your own colorway.

hyperstrikeallstarsheedyo0.jpg

Though Rasheed Wallace didn’t make the cut for the for the NBA All Star team, Nike still made up hyperstrike All Star Air Force Ones with his logo on it. Since these are hyperstrikes, getting ahold of these will be more challenging than the gold package All Star Air Force Ones, but they will probably be less than $2,000 too. The shoes also feature the NBA All Star logo on the back of the shoes.

nike-fall-catalog-2007-1.jpg

Here are some images of a few Nike shoes coming out for fall this year. Once again, Nike will be doing a lot of variations of color and material on some of their more popular retro models. Expect to find models such as the air stabs, air max 90s, max 90 boot, air DT max ‘96, air tech challenge dunks, air max light and air assaults in a different light. I’m leaning towards the Air Max 90 boot as a personal favorite.
