Nike Air Force 1 Low I/O
This Low top Inside/Out was released during holiday 2005 as a tribute to the game of soccer from a Brazilian perspective in the aptly named “Truques and Tricks” Pack which consisted of the above shown AF1 Low and an Air Max 1. The pack was inspired by 3 Brazilian soccer stars whose names and likenesses are laser etched on the insoles. Images of the global game being played are also laser etched on the Sail colored frontal and eyestay portions. What makes this sneaker most unique is the colorway; very seldom are Baroque Brown, Varsity Royal and Sail used in combination, let alone atop a gum sole! This sneaker was also one of first Inside/Out releases, using a single solid piece of leather for the midsole (unlike today’s I/O’s which break the midsole up with seams at the front and rear of each shoe). The leather is premium grade, thick pebbled baroque brown upper and a great texture of supple Sail leather at the frontal and eyestay, as well as throughout the interior. So collectors if you have these, then you either love the game of soccer, or you just simply know a dope AF1 when you see one!
