NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HIGH '07 - GYM RED
Transcending foot coverage since 1982, this once hoops shoe was coined after Air Force One—the aircraft that carries the President of the United States. It was the first basketball shoe to house Nike Air, revolutionizing the game for players like Moses Malone and Charles Barkley while rapidly gaining traction around the world, from the hardwood to the blacktop to the core of hip-hop culture. Today the Air Force 1 stays true to its roots with soft, springy cushioning and a massive midsole, but the Air technology takes a backseat to the shoe’s status as an icon.
Avalible online and at all locations.
NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE PRO PRM - PURE PLATINUM
It’s been nearly two decades since the Air Foamposite Pro first hit the hardwood. Rugged in form thanks to a full Foamposite upper, the shoe has lived on to become the court warrior it was built to be. The shoe's legacy continues to extend beyond basketball, as the style's soft grey hues blend with bright crimson accents and glow-in-the-dark detailing.
In advance of N.E.R.D’s upcoming album, Pharrell opens up about how
Kelis helped diversify his wardrobe and discusses his style influences,
from lumberjacks to hip-hop icons like A Tribe Called Quest.
