IS THE OFF WHITE NIKE AIR FORCE 1 MCA WORTH THE HYPE?!

July 29, 2019



hello and welcome to the workshop this pair of sneakers we got today may be the most hyped pair of sneakers all year I mean the buzz on these has been crazy if you follow me on instagram at mr. follmer simpson then you already saw these because i posted a picture of them on my Instagram story and pretty much anything that comes into the workshop goes up on my Instagram story so if you want to see things first get those behind-the-scenes looks then check me out on Instagram and with that said here are the sneakers bang-bang the Nike Air Force one off white MCA the release details on these have been a little bit hectic shouts the kicks are for us if you are interested in a pair definitely hit them up a lot of people have been asking about these they were supposed to release at complex concha cago but only like four pairs virgil gifted a pair to Serena Williams we saw that the whole time people are trying to figure out when are these releasing ultimately some pairs released in Chicago but only at Nike lab I believe now supposedly we're waiting on a sneakers release but who really knows either way the hype is pretty insane but are they worth the hype that's always the question so let's run through the details and then we will decide all blue pretty much as you can see but for some reason it pops a little more than I thought it would it's almost like deeper blue if that makes sense I don't really know how to explain it but the shade is absolutely perfect the leather is also really really good and of course you have the usual off-white ingredients zip-tie err on the side jewel aces on the shoe laces extra laces too by the way Frankenstein's stitching around the swoosh and I really dig how shiny the swooshes red tab underneath that off-white and Nike Air tab on the side of the tongue off-white stamp on the inside of the shoe underneath the swoosh and then the exposed foam around the ankle and tongue another cool detail but it's something really subtle is this strip on the heel that goes right over the embroidered Nike Air logo I really really dig that all blue bottoms nothing crazy there I'm gonna be honest these are awesome it's an incredible sneaker I've tried to talk myself out of liking these and I just have not been able to they looked good in pictures they look even better in hand so are they worth the hype I would say yes I think that they are worth the height are they worth the current resale prices of course it depends on your financial situation but for me I would say probably not so are those two things one in the same the resale prices and the hype you could kind of argue yes for me I don't know I'm trying to separate them the prices have dropped a little bit but still in that 2 grand range and that's a lot of money to spend on a sneaker having said that if someone told me and this is how I try to look at it here is this is a peek into the mind of a man who has a sneaker problem if you take 8 to 10 general releases are just regular sneakers that you don't really wear Jordans Nikes whatever and some of these sneakers behind me if you take 8 to 10 pairs and sell them for a couple hundred bucks apiece then you could go out hypothetically and buy this pair or it would warrant justify spending this type of money on this sneaker it's kind of like the Anthony Davis trade you know when when the Lakers got a D was it worth it who knows time will tell I don't know also something to keep in mind with more pairs releasing or supposedly releasing we don't really know what's gonna happen with the resale prices so you could wait until after that you don't know how that's gonna affect things maybe the prices will drop even more maybe they won't it's hard to tell I'm not an expert in that area so I kind of just am an onlooker like most of us are either way it might be the most hyped sneaker year so far maybe Travis ones were more hyped but the pure limitedness of these has created a different kind of hype and as some of you may know if you tuned in regularly I was out at complex con I was out in Chicago and so I kind of saw and heard the frenzy and buzz around these let us know what you think though buckets Travis ones are these which is more hyped I don't know hard to say let us know how you feel are these worth it is off-white incredible does it suck what are your thoughts however you feel leave a comment below and let us know always love to hear from you hopefully you found this video helpful got some enjoyment from it I mean it's a beautiful sneaker I mean I just like looking at the sneaker thank you for watching though you are very very appreciated we will be back tomorrow same time same place right here at the workshop until then adios

    I feel like somebody at Nike is following all the custom shoe pages on Instagram and following their trends. I've seen so many customizers do this all over baby blue

    Yea they’re not worth 2k they’re worth $150 retail but people resale it for 2k so I think it is worth the hype for people who were lucky enough to get them for $150

    No way am I selling 10 pairs to buy an all blue AF1 low! I have 85 pairs and value (money) aside I wouldn't trade any of them for these

    They’re dope, but no shoe is worth 2k imo.
