The ‘Uptown’ effect is ready for a renaissance thanks to the arrival of these gems – or should we say “jewels”? Nike Sportswear is bringing back a regional hit in the Air Force 1 Mid ‘NYC’ in two colorways – the original Navy/Red and a new Grey/Volt variety. To be frank, the Mid version of the Air Force 1 was never as popular as the Low or the High, but not in NYC where the model became a cultural icon and eventually absorbed the nickname ‘Uptown’. These are arriving at retailers like Packer Shoes, so keep your eye out for these as they’ll begin to show up on shelves soon.

These kicks came out when the crossover dribble was regional ya dig back when my man Shamgod Wells was king of streetball . . . . . Who knows about the NYC in and out crossover or the DC crossover the most vicious of all... nostalgic for real
