The hardest pair of Air Force Ones to find in deadstock condition.

When these shoes came in to my house after weeks of waiting for them, I had the biggest smile on my face.  They are by far the hardest pair of Air Forces Ones (in my experience) to find in dead stock edition.  These shoes were released in Japan in 2001, and so no retailer in the US had them in stock. 

The Wheat COJP editions are made of brown suede that is just a bit softer than the kind of leather suede you find on Timberland boots.  Inside,  you can still feel the same padding and insole used on all other standard uptowns, but it is truly the exterior look and feel of these shoes that make them extraordinary..this brown colorway gives this pair a rugged look with athletic feel and support.

True retail is unknown for these shoes just because they were never available here in the United States, and when they released in Japan - they became collector status immediately.  I'd estimate a value anywhere from $250-$300 right now for these Air Force Ones.  Beware of false pairs that aren't authentic - as I've run across many of these fake pairs in particular with this series.

it's more of the lighting of the camera...in actual person they're a light brown shade, almost to go with the attempt to make it look like dirt is smeared on the gum of the shoe..
