Year Released: 1995

"Back in the day, the UK was devoid of AF1s. You had to visit spots like Passenger and there'd inevitably be small sizes of imports coming through. In the mid to late 1990s, I remember Foot Locker got some highs and the mid got a push in 1998 before a slew of Lows followed. I guess the UK was considered a low and mid market. It really was the kind of thing you'd grab on a US holiday and the all black sole Hi and the all red sole Hi were objects of desire. The Carolinas are that kind of shoe - what you saw on Junior M.A.F.I.A member's feet in 'The Source' wasn't necessarily available at JD down the road." - @gwarizm
