Bespoke: a term used worldwide to describe an individually-tailored or custom-made product or service.
Derived from the word ‘bespeak’ (to speak or stand for something), it has been used as far back as the 16th century, to describe specially ordered goods.
In my opinion, it certainly is a fitting word to describe the piece below.
Without an ounce of exaggeration, this could very well be the most beautiful custom-made Nike Air Force One that I have ever seen.
For grown folks who have many “leather-bound books” & whose pads smell like “rich mahogany”…
All jokes aside though, a job very well done by The Maverick Project for Nike.

“Two life-long sneaker aficionados, Carlos Sanchez and Tim Rodrigues, secured the coveted winners’ circle on Marcus Troy‘s Maverick Project recently.
The prize, to collaborate on a one-of-a-kind Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke.
Follow an intense design session at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer, the result was a study of “grown”, “classy and original”, each a correlation to the 3 materials used – waterproof wool, leather, and Kevlar.
Like fine Scotch whiskey and cigars, a deep hue of mahogany brown translate each participants’ character perfectly.
For that added personal touch, the lettering on the lace dubrae spell out the names of Maverick Project‘s 2 winners.
A fine reflection of all 3 men’s curated pursuits.”
