My consolation prize when I failed to get the Patta x Parras
A nice twist on an AM1 with a Clarks Wallabee-esque crepe sole. Makes them a bit heavier that a normal AM1 but they’re reasonably classy as trainers go. I’ve had them almost a year and this was only the second time I’ve had them out.
I remember these being £65 new on nikestore.com when they were released which is a rare thing for an AM1. Early photos made them look like they had a gum sole but in reality it’s just a plain brown one. Not the best of quality - the red bled onto the mesh after the first wear - but an okay shoe.
These were from last year’s Attack Pack - they sat on the shelves and I managed to pick them up for around £30 from Size? - a bargain. Can’t beat a bit of 3M. I’d already semi destroyed them cycling home in the wet a few months back and I finished the job off a few hours after this photo was taken cycling home in even more rain. :(
This pair of AM1s is from the 2009 safari pack. I think these were the pick of the bunch. I swapped out the laces for these yellow ones making it another killer summer shoe.
