Cactus Plant Flea Market x Air Force 1 Low
The Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike Air Force 1 Low “White” is one of two colorways imagined by the eccentric streetwear brand as part of its continuous partnership with Nike. Subdued only in color thanks to its classic “White-on-White” design, the Cactus Plant Flea Market x Air Force 1 borrows the look of the big “Air” branding popularized by Scottie Pippen ‘s old signature shoe, the Air More Uptempo.
Bringing a signature Air More Uptempo element to the classic basketball shoe, the Cactus Plant Flea Market x Air Force 1 Low Premium “Black” released as part of a collaboration with the Los Angeles streetwear brand.
Built entirely with leather, the upper appears in black/white, with the large “Air” lettering on the lateral side of the right shoe sporting reflective detailing.”Flea” in the same style appears on the left, while underfoot, Air in the midsole provides cushioning.
I’ve spoken to a lot of people about Air Force 1s. For me, they run big. I normally order 13 in Nikes. With AF1s, I order a 12. Some people say they’re true to size. Not for me. But they’re consistent. Love the feel. Very comfy. But very supportive. Old school heavier feel. Little extra height. Classic. Footlocker online order and delivery went well. I was also impressed by the inventory. Had some models that I couldn’t find anywhere else – at least, at MSRP.

Alright, fine, a little more detail. These are super comfortable, I’m on about my 5th pair now, and I just can’t stop buying them. I tend to wear these and keep them nice for a while, but eventually, with daily use, they get bad creases, dirt, scuffs, etc., and then I tend to let them get pretty beat up. They’re just too comfortable to put in a closet or on a shelf because they’ve got a couple of blemishes on them. The insoles come up into the inside of the arch of your foot, unlike some others – Nike Air Indie – which really make you feel the perimeter of the insole, which can get annoying.

Daily use (pretty much the only shoe that I wear), winter and all, I still got about a year’s worth of wear out of those shoes before they got bad enough that I didn’t want to wear them in public. They’re still pretty comfortable, though. I wear them to and from the office, even though the tread is worn pretty bad, just so that my dress shoes can stay clean. Great comfort, great quality, a little pricey, but they look great when they’re new, and feel great for a long time after.

I have always owned a pair and have worn them a ton. Very comfortable and stylish. Couldn’t find an outfit that didn’t go with them. I would buy 1000 pairs to wear if I had the money. Such a classic shoe. Have worn them with fancy clothes and just regualr outfits. Casual, Athletic, you can do whatever you want in them. I have a bunch of the af1 colabs and they hold their value well. They don’t break, very reliable shoes.

I love the AF1! I’m a female and they were out of my size in the female version, so I just ordered my size in the male version. They look the same to be honest, but the fit is amazing.

I bought these for my 13 year old son. He loves them! I was worried about buying a boy white leather shoes for fear of them getting dirty too easily, but he has been great about wiping off any dirt of smudges easily with dish soap and water. He reports they are comfortable and true to size.

I love my white AF1, the first pair of nikes I bought a month ago.
I wear them to work every day, and if your company doesn’t mind nice sneakers, buy these too. They are super comfortable; about the same firmness as a pair of white Newbars I used to wear on the sole, but the Nike has more side and top support (I guess because the fabric/quality is much better) so your feet hold up well and comfortable. And they don’t look like the others will bend over time.

I bought these shoes mainly for work. I need a good, sturdy pair of shoes that will provide comfort during long workdays since I’m standing most of the time. The sleek white looks so good that no one even noticed it was meant to be a running shoe. I have to admit, I don’t run in these shoes, but as you can imagine they are so versatile and I love them so much that I wear them until the soles wear out. Then my daughter bought me a new pair, just like the first pair. I can’t tell you how happy I am to get them! Best birthday present ever! I definitely recommend this product!
I buy these for my boyfriend every holiday, birthday, etc! He always needs at least a new pair in the box as a backup when he needs to change his play. I wear the kids Air Force because I have tiny feet, but I love them too! My only complaint is that as a petite woman, they can be big and heavy on my feet. If the women’s/kids version were less bulky, I could have paired them more with my clothes, but I still love them. Always will. My boyfriend’s only complaint is the creases after a lot of wear, which doesn’t happen to me since I have small feet, but since his feet are bigger, they creases unless you want to move around. But we are the nike family.. we always have a fresh pair of nikes with the kids.. all day baby

I got a pair of white AF1’s, and they’re true to everything that’s been said about them. They run one size bigger, but they’re quite comfortable and light. The sole has some cushion, so they’re good for walking and going about your day. I haven’t worn them for basketball, but have for work, at school, at the library, in the city, at restaurants, and at nightclubs. They look very fashionable and feel great on the feet. They’re very comfortable and stylish; very versatile.

These sneakers are better than expected. I ordered them online based on their photo. They looked so unique & different from the standard white Air Force 1 sneaker; they are exactly that! They feel more durable; which is great!

Air Forces are favored in my house; but are expensive. Therefore, they are not bought & replaced often. In my house, we wear our sneakers until they are no longer wearable (even if they are only good for “outside chores”, such as mowing the lawn; we find a purpose for ’em). Seems to me these shoes won’t be ready for outside chores for a long, long time … So I hope!

Anyway, the soles are thick & the outer body of the shoe is unique to the touch. Like I said, they are different than the standard Air Force 1 sneaker. They’re also much more attractive, in my opinion.
