Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke   The Gift By 21 Mercer | Detailed Look

After the mayhem last week over the release of http://freshnessmag.com/2011/12/23/niketown-new-york-air-jordan-xi-retro-concord-launch-event-recap/” target=”_blank”>Air Jordan XI Retro Concord, it was only natural for http://nikesportswear.com” target=”_blank”>Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer to do something much more subtle as a follow-up. Introducing “The Gift”, a special Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke created for the very purpose of thanking the store’s customers and supporters. The preliminary design concepts were drafted first by Iz Mateo, the Lead Design Consultant at 21 Mercer, and Gianni Mele, a sneaker aficionado with a penchant for good design and the winner of this year’s Nike Sportswear iD Royale Contest. The two men came to an unique design approach by drawing all of the inspirational aspects during the holiday season. From present wrapping to holiday treats, gathering of love ones, dinner among family, fireplace chats, and more… Then, to reiterate these emotions into components for the Air Force 1 Bespoke, but with a twist. Because both Mateo and Mele wanted each wearer to be reminded with their own memories of the holiday season, they left their imprints on the final design as ambiguous as possible. So rather than a Bespoke designed by someone else, wearer of “The Gift” By 21 Mercer can truly call their pair their own.

For a chance to win yourself a pair, simply follow 21 Mercer Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/21_mercer” target=”_blank”>@21_Mercer. No purchases are necessary, just heed to the store’s Tweet daily for instruction on how to win a pair. With four pairs in total up for grab, the contest will end by the week’s end.
