Celebrating 10 years in the neighborhood bizzo, we have teamed up with @bespoke_ind to bang out a belcher of a classic Nike silhouette.
With the back bone of an AF1 low, and riding the tip of the deconstruction reconstruction wave by bashing a number of products together to reinvent our own AF1 with thanks to craftsman from Bespoke.
Merging apparel with the 10th anniversary woven tag, sacrificing 2 Saint Side basketballs per pair and refitting oversized Swoosh’s either side taking inspiration from the sizing of the Nike Cortez to marry up the basketball shoe, basketball texture.
Rear SFFS heal tab embroidery, new calf tumbled leather tongue with SB style padding and Choppin’ n Lockin’ tongue tag branding in contrasted white leather. Final touches include 3 sets of custom laces and engraved lace dubrae from Lace Space, suede footbed liner with the all important morning reminder to Fsck Every Csnt as you slide these stompers on.
Staying on brand with the timeless black and white throughout, a lasered inner tongue message is left for those special someones who manage to secure a pair.
Dubbed the Chop Lock 1, with only 10 units made in total (all lasered on the numbered heal tab in case you forget), and priced at $1010.10, these bad boys go on sale midnight, March 20th on saintside.com
We have also been working with Lace Space and will be releasing the custom lace sets for individual purchase, at $10 each, everyone will be able to add a little Saint Side flavour to their rotation
