Spotted in innocuous, budget UK retail surroundings when it originally dropped, this basic looking AF1's stitched glossy swoosh and sparing use of University Blue make it look like some kind of lost cult favorite. Drops from this era are often seen on the feet of older men, twinned with dad jeans, oblivious to the fact they're wearing such a hard shoe. In an odd way, that makes these even cooler.
