    Taking a departure from the Disney/Pixar lineup I’ve done, I wanted to make a shoe for a city I once called home, Boston. Went to BC and fell in love with everything about Bean Town. This ones for the fam and the countless times we woke up on the weekends needing a Dunkies run.

    Orignally had the sketch and idea for logo “America runs on Nike” along with two half eaten donuts that resemble the letter “D”. loll corporate flagged the idea but honestly liked how these came out better. Tweaked the tongue liner to resemble and read like a Cup Sleeve “Caution: Product Extremely Hot”.

    Id paint the lines on the mid on those.

    Too dark and needs a break up to match the vivid uppers.

    Cool concept.

    Such a DOPE concept! I’m very interested in designing a bespoke at 21M. How long after you submitted your design was your idea flagged? How did you make the changes? via Email?

    Thanks, Sir! We finally agree on something LOL!

    Better shape, better comfort, a more vibrant red, complete volt outsole. Overall, just a better shoe compared to the OG from the dark ages.

    Haha thanks bro I actually wanted to paint lines crazy coincidence but it's not an available option except for the air window. I wanted the red background but yeah the picture makes the midsole look almost black loll but they're much more brown in person

    Thanks bro! Yeah it was several weeks in but it got very delayed as this was my 2nd design done but the 5th one in. I'd say about 3 weeks in was when it was flagged but I was able to remedy the issue quick since I've gotten close with some of the staff and the alerted me via text about it.

    So it seems like that vaulting of the AM1 thing was real.

    They were pumping out new AM1 gr's every week for like 2 years. Now it's nothing. In the last 3-6 months, we've had a few themed shoes like the Windbreaker, Atmos, Susan, and the Sketches but that's really it.

    Look here, the last non-themed or collab AM1 was the "cut out swoosh" pair back in May. That's when the mint green and the photo blue dropped too. Nothing since then.

    Here in the UK it is more noticeable. We have had a lack of new releases and we missed out on a lot of those special releases like the Have A Nike Day pair and the Swipas.

    That just means now is the perfect time to go back and pick up the pairs you missed or passed on for whatever reason before prices creep up.
    Finally copped the blue Have A Nike Day pair this week. I have quite a few bids in for different pairs on StockX, but feel like they keep getting further out of reach!

    Right, I'm not complaining about it. I needed a break. I was just commenting that it seems like the vault talk was legit.

    Dang I just had a bid accepted for $175 total on goat for DNA screams greens that I forgot about. Meant to cancel my bid last week. Got a fraud alert from PayPal to accept or decline payment. I declined lol. I mean I like them but I feel like that’s too much. Did I make a mistake? Do y’all think these will have an actual release?

    I never post pick ups - but I'm proud of this one

    It's so hard being my size - the older pairs are cooked or non-existent

    Not looking like it. Such an odd release, or lack thereof.

    I definitely agree with you. We haven't had the two you've mentioned, the Inside Outs, the Not-So Inside Outs, the Puerto Rico's, the USAs' and I'm sure I'm missing some out too. All that being said many of these pairs are sitting on stockx close to or below retail so once you account for fees you can get a pair like the Have a Nike Day for retail including fees.
