As I promised.. I will blog about the horse… Here I am blogging about the horse I picked up yesterday, (Wednesday)..

Headed down to Pertama Complex on Wednesday slightly after lunch.. Reason? To get some post Chinese New Year pickups.. Well if there’s Pre Chinese New Year shopping, I’m sure there is Post Chinese New Year shopping.. I mean afterall it is just a pair of shoes… Ooops.. Yea I did mean it.. Shoes!

My recent pickup.. The Nike Air Force 1 Horse..  (My fourth pair of White/White sneakers..)

This pair was released in conjunction of the Lunar New Year back in 2002.. Why Horse you may ask.. It is because 2002 is the year of Horse.. Awesome huh? I first saw this pair in Pertama Complex when I was form 4 (2004) if I’m not wrong.. That was during Christmas season if I’m not wrong.. Didn’t expect that I will cop such a pair today..

It was the last pair, or probably the second last pair.. But this is definitely the last pair in my size.. Size 8US that is.. Woohoo! I’m happy! Owhh I forgot to mention that I got it at a steal price! It is the cheapest Air Force 1 I ever bought.. I just checked, some joker off the bay (eBay) is selling the same pair BRAND NEW UNWORN (which is the same condition/almost the same as mine) for a price of USD$300! Crazy! I seriously think that he is trying to rip off.. Well if any future buyer of that pair of sneaker ever know the price that I pay for, he will probably crying out loud..

More detailed pictures..

Red lining on the swoosh on the outer side…

On the inner side, blue lining on the swoosh..

Not to mention the ICEY sole and patent leather on the shoe panels and heel tab.. Owh for your information the ICEY sole were meant to be transparent, like seriously white! Mine is yellowed as hell! Vintage look!

Sizing tag.. The old way.. Slightly different from present Air Force 1’s..

The model number, on the other side..

And lastly..

The tongue.. Can anyone read what’s on the tag.. Care to share please! I really wanna know what’s the meaning of the two characters.. It is also printed on the insole..

I love buying stuff at good bargains! Pertama Complex is the place to get good bargains!
