Shelflife #SneakOfTheMonth – August 2017

With the transfer window currently kicking my arse in my real job, this month’s #SneakOfTheMonth is a little bit late coming out, however it is still August so it’s not TOO late just yet.

I’ve taken a bit of a break from buying sneakers for myself due to time restraints – I have to restrict myself from visiting Shelflife because I don’t have the will power to not buy! – but it doesn’t stop me looking online.

This isn’t the first time I’ve done this trainer design, but it is a new colourway and I absolutely love this shoe, so this month’s Shelflife #SneakOfTheMonth is:

Nike Air Force 1 – Ultra Flyknit – “Sunset Rise”

af1-817419-601---side- (1)

I’ve got two pairs of Air Force 1 flyknits myself – one in blue and one in red – and they’re genuinely one of the comfiest pairs that I have. They’re also amazing in the summer months because they’re crazy breathable. Absolutely love this sneaker.


I’m not 100% sure I could pull off this colourway myself, but I love how they look. Even though they’re pink I think they’d look dope on guys as well as girls, and if rocked with a dark pair of denim jeans then they’d be ???. Got to be careful to keep them clean though, they’ll dirty up quick!


My Take: 9/10
I can’t rate them higher than my blue ones – because they’re amazing – but I really do like these sneakers a lot. I’ve only rated them down slightly because I think they might be relatively difficult to pair with things, but with the right outfit they’ll look incredible.

SNEAK FACT!! – The “Original Six” to wear the AF1 on court were Moses Malone, Bobby Jones, (both Philadelphia 76ers), Michael Cooper, Jamal Wilkes (both LA Lakers), Calvin Natt and Mychal Thompson (both Portland Trail Blazers).
