Sometimes it’s the quiet ones that deserve the most attention. Dressed in simple colors, this special set of Air Force 1′s from Nike Sportswear and London’s Dover Street Market speak big. Dressed in a new material called Ventile, this woven fabric commonly seen in apparel is naturally water and windproof and is built to withstand tearing and even fire without all the added bulk. Arriving in two colorways – classic navy and summer ecru – with a Tyvek tongue marked with 17-18, DSM’s street number in London and a nod toward a runner’s bib number, these are a fine way to continue the celebration of the AF1′s 30th Anniversary. Expect these to release on July 20 at the Ginza location in Tokyo and on July 28 in London followed by a wider release in mid-August.
July 20th, 2012 (Friday) – DSM Ginza
