Although the Celtics lost in an ill fashion yesterday all I could think about was Rasheed Wallace’s Nike Air Force 1’s. I’ve admired this man for wearing this iconic shoe even though its technology is obsolete in 2010. I was more impressed with his “Gumby” colorway today than Kobe’s new White/Gold “Big Stage” Nike Kobe V. I had to pause my TV a few times to get a good look of this model because I was so intrigued. All I could think about was how I had a Bobbito moment and sooner or later I would be telling my kids about these Forces. This man plays 48 minutes not counting how many times a week he practices in them; this man’s feet must hurt on levels I can’t imagine. Read More »

David Park, a graduating senior from the Parsons School of Design created this motion graphics piece as his senior thesis project. Titled “Sole 2 Soul”, the piece examines the intersection of hip-hop, hoops, and grips in urban youth culture. In the video, Run-DMC rocks out in adidas, Bugs Bunny appears in “Hare” Jordan VIIs, b-boys glide in PUMA Clydes and Dr. J. administers the funk in Chuck Taylor All-Stars.
The presentation and graphics work are so precise it’s criminal. Seriously y’all, Park killed this joint. Consider it 3 minutes and 14 seconds well spent. The cohesion of colors, sounds, and music are the most explicit form of resplendence possible. You dig?!
The long awaited Black Friday Nike Air Force 1 by DJ Clark Kent landed at Nike Sportswear, 21 Mercer Street at 4AM. Clark Kent designed the Black Friday Nike Air Force 1 with black pony hair throughout eyelets and toe box. Metallic silver is etched at the heel, Swoosh, and heel tab. To polish off the kicks, the midsole gives a glossy black shine which changes colors with the light. A glaring rainbow effect is reflected when the light hits the mid-sole.
Suggested Retail Price $150
Batteries not included.
Thanks to DJ Clark Kent for letting me in the door.
Manhattan keeps on makin’ it… Brooklyn keeps on takin’ it!
