Rewind: SWEAR Airs

January 25, 2013 at 3:52 am

Hooray for making shit up as you go along.  Just making days up will-nilly.

Alright, the need for a custom blog design is becoming more apparent.  Bare with me for a bit longer.  Meanwhile, the onslaught of SWEARS continues.  Yes, I think I pretty much have every pic of SWEARS currently on the internet, as well as many gleaned from years of ebay and a few too many hours on the Internet Wayback Machine.  It may not look like it from the Vintage Archive, but SWEARs are actually endangered species.  Need to catalogue this shit while we can.  Poor SWEARs are dying off every day :(

There’s some unidentified SWEARs at the bottom, and under Air 32.  Please comment if you know what model # they are.

Air 06 – these look suspiciously like Air 21s.  However they were found on reputable sources (ie. an archive of a SWEAR website or Mudshark)

    Your blog is awesome, I’ve just spent ages drooling over all the swears. I have a rainbow pair of Air 16’s that you don’t have a photo of (I’ve never seen another pair like them)- I can get a pic for you if you like?
