    My dude! What up?!

    Shout to anybody still around here.

    I know I'm gravedigging here, but I just want to give a tip of the cap to this pair. One of the best pairs released in, hell, probably the last 10 years. And it's no surprise because although the shoe is credited to Haze, one of the chief behind-the-scenes designers of it was a staple of this thread many years ago, who owned many a gem. He was too humble to say anything, and probably wouldn't want me to either, so I won't - but this is something of a TEAMAF1-made shoe.

    Love the Hazes. So simple, so clean and the arrow and AIR font on the side is so strong.

    Hello fellow Team AF Family,

    Any chance to get a legit check on this pair of Linen in the University/Blue c/w ?

    It's not the right thread to do legit checks, but I'll oblige you anyways. The toebox and the Swoosh on that pair seem highly suspect but there were so many AF1s released in 2007 that quality and shape were all over the damn place so there's no real benchmark. That said I don't think those were highly sought after in order to justify variants so I'll say they are legit and advise you not to pay too much for them.

    Thank you for your answer. I was also quite worried about the swoosh so finally decided not to risk buying them. They were at a BIN price of £26 plus shipping.

    That's a super low price, I'd actually be skeptical of it being so low. You'd definitely want to see pictures of the box just to be safe. Sometimes the boxes are a dead giveaway of counterfeit pairs.

    There is also the possibility that the seller just wants to clear out the pair so they've priced them super aggressively. If you look at the heel tab you can see some type of embossing - I don't think variants would have little details like that.

    I bought a pair of 82 air force 1 here in angola on a very credible store but they didn't came on the nike box and they are PAT so there's a high chance they are fake but they were kinda "expensive" so I'm a lot confuse. This store also sell other brands and i doubt they are all fake lol if they are that's a shame lol. Also I read on ebay that some PAT nike air force are real like the previous release or something like that but idk so maybe someone can confirm this to me. Is there any chance my AF1 82 are real? Because there's no chance i can go there and return my shoes. I'm so pissed off. I guess that's what it means to buy shoes in Africa. What a shame... smh.they look pretty decent and i believed the time i bought them but something made me search online because I don't like to wear fake stuff specially if they cost me a lot of money and i found they may fake... smh. I hope i get a notification if someone replies. Thanks.

    At first glance those look fake to me. Font on the tag looks off and overall shape of shoe. I could be wrong tho.

    Shapes for the XXV anniversary AF1s were all over the place. Those were the 'Basic' AF1s and they're a smaller size so they look bulky. The tag and the production dates on it are correct plus there's the embossing on the heel which the variants would probably have screen printed on.

    For 30 Pounds shipped it's not too big of a risk. I remember that 'Linen Blue' pair being somewhat desirable when it dropped in Jan/Feb of '07 but there's zero demand for it now and the price is reflective of it.

    Not sure if anyone else posted these in the previous 500+ pages...these are my AF1 Horse samples from 2002.  They were samples of the 2nd "Year of the Horse" AF1 to release that year (1st being the white ones with red swoosh).  These samples differ from GR version on the "HORSE" font and the bi-color clear sole.  The GR version's "HORSE" became more like "H O R S E" in a flatter font and soles were just plain clear soles.  It is the first time in 14 years that they've been out of storage and unfortunately the midsole has gone yellow.

    Just a heads up, but you can fix the yellowed midsole with some research and patience. If the patent leather yellowed you'd be straight out of luck but the midsole can be un-yellowed.

    I posted these on Instagram but basically I picked up these DS mushrooms today. The box says they're a sz 8.5 so they were posted as being 8.5 so I bought them thinking they'd be sz 8.5. They are actually 9.5. I'm pretty bummed. These are probably my holy grails and I was excited to cross them off the list. I'm looking to trade them for a DS 8/8.5 or sell them for what I paid for them. I can post more pics later or if you go under Worm Toykos Instagram store you can see more.
