The Nike SF-AF1 Mid: An Interesting Take On The Original

The Nike SF-AF1 has become one of our favorite new shoes currently on the market.

But it didn’t start that way. We were iffy at first. We thought they were a bit too Yeezy-esque. We didn’t like the look. But they grew on us. More and more fire colorways kept releasing, and as we saw more street style shoots, we came around on them.

Because of that, we’re more willing to give the new SF-AF1 Mids a chance than we’d normally be. What made the SF-AF1 unique was its super high high top, something that’s not present on the mid. The mid looks like a cross between an AF1 Mid and an AF1 High … so it’s unique to say the very least. The ‘Tiger Camo” pair at the top of this article will be the first colorway to debut, and we’re interested to see what the response will be like.

Granted, the middle of the summer might not be the very best time for a mid-top, boot-esque sneaker to release, but Nike has surprised us before, and they may just surprise us once again. We’re not sure how these will look on-feet (no truly thorough images have surfaced just yet), but as we mentioned above, we’ll be willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

We’ll just have to wait and see … but we’re cautiously optimistic about these jawns. Hey, that’s a good way to be, isn’t it?
