Year: 2004

One of the best JD Sports Air Forces ever, the denim tones on this colorway were complimented by that small does of pink. At a time when we thought the Diplomats' reign was unstoppable, wearing pink was perfectly acceptable and these made the feminine shade so low-key that even the most self-conscious goons weren't afraid to break a pair out. These were a nice counterbalance to British shelves of the usual all-whites, black-on-blacks and pallid greys - an entire Harlem hip-hop outfit of the time, big jeans, embroidery, white tee and pink fitted in one shoe.
