I just remember there being this really solid run of attainable AF1s and then it all went to crap. This was back when hazardshoes.com was the spot to grab overseas joints.
at the patent years. I'll admit I was caught up....had the first Halloweens, both Easters, the white/graphite gray Asia exclusive joints, Cartoons, Sheeds, etc. To this day I still remember plotting where to grab the Halloweens with the homie illphil via AIM on the Sidekick.
Some of those are dope to this day, but looking back at it, I looked foolish as hell with some Easter egg shoes on.
I went through the patent phase and man
I did look doofy as hell with a WHOLE FIT (Polo Bear T-shirt included) matching the second Easters. I even had a Lavender Members Only jacket to top it off.
I remember the exact moment I realized I was doing the most and sold the Easter's the next week.
I had the Patent low Sheeds with the blue toe and the patent black and white Sheed highs. I even have a pic of my daughter when she was a baby trying to walk around in them.
Looking back at all of the dope pairs that I no longer have, simply because I thought that NIKE would never stop dropping dope Air Force 1's kind of makes me sick.
A quick R.I.P to some fallen soldiers.
Brown and White Escape lows
Black and White Escape lows
Italian Lux Highs (Black)
Maple and Birch lows (dat leather
Inside out Lazer Mids (nature of communication)
And there was a dark cinder pair with wool on them and they came with some burlap looking laces and a pair of silky flat laces. I can't remember the name of them, but they were dope too.
Wishing I still had them all.
