21 Mercer still sees success with its Nike Bespoke studio even during these hard times. The man under the name of Alex came by to bring 21 Mercer back in time with his take on what dinosaurs probably wore back in the day, or back in the millennium. The Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke comes in a dark crocskin colorway, using black and brown croc on the upper, along with baseball-style stitching at the toe and side panel. The tongue tag is also donned in croc, while sitting on an olive green tongue. The clear sole finishes off this Bespoke, making this a nice shoe and a worthwhile trip to 21 Mercer for Alex. Let us know what you think of Alex’s personal one-of-one Nike Air Force 1.

  1. I'm the guy who paid to get these made. Maybe it'd be better if I explained my choices in the Bespoke:

    the gold lace locks say (right foot) 2009 (left foot) BC. I'm not sure about the fat joe comment, but I can promise you the idea for these is completely of my own device.

    The entire point of creating the 2009BCs is that I wanted to follow a prehistoric theme, keeping it right there with cavemen and dinosaurs. Thus, the croc leather represents the reptiles, and the canvas on the back and the tongue, represents the closest material I could conjure up thinking of neanderthal clothing. Which brings me to the baseball stitching. It reminds me of the sewing construction of materials (or tools) with the cross-hatching pattern, sort of like an archaic method.

    What the pictures don't show you besides the gold foil check, is the silver foil check on the inside of the shoe, that would bring us to how the two precious metals could've been a sought after item way back when.

    The Nike embroideries were chosen to be red because it symbolizes to me, the times being so rudimentary and bloodshed (ie. carnivores > herbivores, caveman for territory) happening all the time.

    Hopefully it clears up some questions, everything I put down has a purpose, AND I just wanted the chance to clear whatever up with whoever was looking at this!
