With summertime pretty much here, it’s about that time when sneakerheads flock to their local retailers to cop some new heat for their summer rotations. Nothing says summertime like a fresh, crisp pair of white on white AF1′s. Whether low of mid top, the white on white AF1 has and will surely always be a must have for the hot weather.
In considering those who want the classic white on white colorway but with a slightly modernized touch, the good folks at Nike have created this “Spike” version of the Nike Air Force 1 Downtown.
That’s right, you read that last sentence correct. This slimmed down silhouette that is the AF1 Downtown is fully equipped with some silver spikes about the toe box, middle and heel of the shoe.
Just in case that isn’t enough of a modern touch, the aforementioned pair of AF1′s will also come rocking the infamous icy sole about its bottom. With the creative envelope clearly being pushed beyond its limits, how do you sneakerheads feel about this latest pair of AF1 Downtowns? Do you appreciate the creative ingenuity? Or are these truly a monstrosity? Check the pics after the jump and sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts.
