Shoe already falling apart after 4 wearsBought this shoe as a christmas gift for myself as it looks good and has a creative concept. I have only worn the shoe 4 times since I got it, three times to school, and once to a friends house. Shoe stitching began to fray first time I wore it and the "air vent" thing on the shoe fell off completely after the third time I wore it, and lace aglet fell off after the fourth time.

FantasticLet's be real. You're not looking at this shoe for the support or the comfort (both of which are quite adequate, just for the record). You're looking at this shoe because it looks super stylish. Bold yet understated. Futuristic yet simplistic. I will tell you that this shoe looks even better in person and is an absolute eye-catcher. I got these shoes yesterday and have already received more complements on them than I care to count. I find that the toe is often the problem area of a stylish shoe as it will fade/wrinkle over time from bending so often. Not on these. The pebbled leather hides the signs of folding/wrinkling, and white leather (I got the white/red pair) will not fade. Quite simply, these shoes are so stylish that you can't not look good in them. You better buy these shoes. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great StyleI've never been a fan of AF1, but love this modern, boot-like style with it's military elements, especially in the green colorway I bought (Sequoia). Here's the thing with the AF1 sole: It's very very chunky. It's a thick sole, wider than anything I am used to and the most difficult part about wearing these is they are not flexible in the slightest. They are very well cushioned and your foot will be comfortable no doubt, but at the cost of total isolation from the pavement. It's a really strange sensation that I've actually only ever experienced in really clunky winter boots. I've had to adapt the way I walk in them. First couple of times driving with these was really difficult also. Again, my foot is so isolated from the outsole that I almost could not feel the pedals or what was going on beneath my foot. I have to adapt to how I drive when I wear these. Since I can't really feel what I'm doing, it can be hard to properly accelerate behind the wheel too.
By the way, not sure if the description mentions this but the back of the heel (where the zip is) is padded. It's not terribly supportive, so if you are someone who walks heavy on the heel or likes it right up against the back of your shoe it's going to feel like there's nothing back there. The nylon upper is very collapsible. I walk more forward on my foot.
All in all I'm happy with these. Wouldn't buy another pair as I was planning on buying in another color, but I bought these for the style and they did not disappoint me in that category. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Strapped and LacedThe Nike Special Field Air Force is an awesome shoe. I picked up the White and Gym Red colorway and I am in love. I have worn this shoe in very extreme weather and my feet were very dry. The leather is alright, the product text on the side of the shoes is a nice touch and unique, the laces are nice and rope like, the zippers at the heel look cool and make it easier to get your foot in (major problem with the high top version of these) the strap also looks cool while providing an extra level of sereneness, and the sole is the classic Air Force 1 sole we all love. The shoe fits like an air force 1, so I did have to go down a size and a half from my true size. They fit snug on my narrow foot, definitely a good fit for all foot types. It is pretty comfortable considring the bulk it has. Overall, would've liked to see better leather on the shoe, but other than that, it is an excellent Fall/Winter shoe to have
