“John Strickland was street basketball for the last twenty years in New York City.”
Don’t forget to Finish Your Breakfast before you go out tomorrow morning to cop these super-clean Nike Air Force 1 Lows. Created as a form of tribute to John Strickland, the NYC streetball legend who passed away at the early age of 38, the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Strick’ captures the essence of NYC urban culture using the classic white-on-white as the base for the detail-heavy pair of Forces. With the NYC Swoosh logo stamped on the insole of the shoe, the AF1 Low ‘Strick’ is already off to a great start; add in the custom tongue labels and the molded leather imprints on the heel, and you’ve got a pair of kicks that can be celebrated by fans of Strick and followers of the sneaker game. These will hit select NSW retailers like Moe’s as well as 21 Mercer, Niketown NY, and House of Hoops on 34th and Harlem locations tomorrow, so take a look at these new detailed shots and don’t miss out on one of the best Air Force 1 releases of the year.
