For the Love of the Shoes

It has been a while since my last installment, but today I am back with a truly special pair of shoes: the Jeremy Lin Nike Air Force 1s. Since the shoes debuted, Jeremy Lin has taken the mega contract offered by the Houston Rockets, but that does not stop his AF 1s from being truly awesome.

The shoe has a great combination of denim and nubuck overlays for material and is colored in the famous NY Knicks blue and orange hues. It has “LIN” on the tongues, and on the backs, one shoe has his jersey number 17, and the other has “JL.”

The shoes are striking and will probably prove to be fairly collectible, since Lin has now signed a three-year contract with the Houston Rockets for $25 million. He took his opportunity and made the most of it in New York, parlaying that into a sizable payday for himself. Shows the value of that Harvard education.

Enjoy the pictures, and I hope you find a pair—I know I am looking.
