A couple of months ago we had the pleasure of testing out the new Nike Bespoke service, the appointment only service, that is currently only available at the Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer Flagship Store. A Nike designer guided us through the process of designing an Air Force 1. Plenty of materials, colors were at choice. We decided in the end to create an Air Force 1 that would look like a duck boot and we are more than happy with the outcome.
The process is certainly an experience and un-comparable to the regular Nike iD program. Already the fact that you are in the room touching all the materials and parts of the sneaker changes everything. Even though they have all the parts there, your design you can only see in the form of a printout after the session, so we did not really know what to expect.
The package arrived this week and we can say that this is without a doubt the highest quality Nike sneaker that we have ever had in our hands. Everything on the shoe comes in premium leathers, including the insole and the lining. Each sneaker comes in an individual dust bag and also with custom shoe trees.
Should you ever pass by the Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer store in NYC, make sure to check out the Bespoke service. It’s well worth it.
