Over the last year Adidas has definitely lead the trainer wars, just look at some of my recent review; Tubulars, Primeknits, Ultra Boosts and of course, not forgetting the various versions of Yeezy’s. Nike trainers seem more focused on the Jordan ranges, basketball style looks, which, I personally don’t like.
At the end of last week Nike released the anticipated Air Force 1 Wheat Flax trainer (hi-top version). These look fantastic, very similar in appearance to the popular white versions but the light brown/yellow colour gives the look of a timberland boot and not of a normal trainer. The finish is very good, nice material and the whole look is high quality, when actually wearing the shoes they are very comfortable too – note the sizing, I bought a 9 which is what I usually go for is a 43 1/3 in euro size.
They are extremely reasonable to buy at £90 which adds even more bonus points to a very good trainer – buy them immediately!
Air Force 1 Wheat Flax Review
A modest trainer that has been revitalised by using an unusual colour and material
