This special edition of the NIKE SF AIR FORCE 1 MID (AKA the Nike SF-AF1 Mid, depending on who you’re talking to) shows the urban utility boot in an exclusive construction and colourway designed specifically for the 12 O’Clock Boys: Baltimore’s notorious dirt bike crew.

As a new update of the Air Special Field Air Force 1, the mid-top edition of is just the thing for those who found the original design a little too hefty. Designed by Nike Sportswear designer Ben Kirschner, the original SF-AF1 design was inspired by military work-wear, utilising durable and relevant materials such as ballistic nylon and tough leather details. Following the successful run of colourways on the original SF-AF1 and its mid-top sibling, this special edition was designed for the well-known urban dirt bikers from Baltimore, the 12 O’Clock Boys. Having starred in their own documentary back in 2013, the crew hail from all parts of the inner city, invading the streets and clashing with police, who are forbidden to chase the bikes for fear of endangering the public.

For this customised version of the shoe, additions to the design include ‘RAISE IT UP’ ankle straps, small Swooshes on the lateral sides of the forefoot and eye-catching red/black or blue/black colours throughout. Whether these are strictly for the crew members remains to be seen: we hope to see them reach the shelves at some point, as the colours and design additions really do enhance the original silhouette. We’ll keep you posted on any news of a wider release.
