Nike Air Force 1 Low
Another month has flown by and it is time once more for impatient purveyors of fashion and timepieces to match a watch with a currently hot and trending shoe. Only just available on shelves right now are these Nike Air Force 1 Low sneakers. It is said one of the most coveted pairs of Nikes ever released are the rare Wu-Tang Dunk Highs. While it’s unlikely that the collaborative pair will ever see a re-release, these Air Force 1 Low’s are a close match. Outfitted in a black and “University Gold” colorway, these classic sneakers feature two-toned leather uppers. Set atop a white midsole, they could work even if you’re not looking for Wu-Tangs. Available at Nike retailers worldwide for around $90.00.
The question is, can we possibly find some watch wear for these strident yellow Nikes? Fear not.

Breitling Emergency II
For those times you take the Nike Air Force Lows outward bound, there’s the Breitling Emergency II watch. It comes with two emergency signal transmitters; the first features a 121.5 MHz frequency emergency signal transmitter that can be used to send out an “SOS” type signal. The second sends a signal to satellites. The second signal uses a digital 406 MHz frequency that is sent to low-orbiting satellites, allowing the wearer to be located no matter where they may be stranded. The Breitling Emergency II comes in a 51 mm titanium case. Around $15,000.00
