Sneakers That Ignited The Sample and PE Craze: DJ Clark Kent’s “112″
When thinking about the rare sneaker samples that had collectors in the frenzy over the last few years, the name of DJ Clark Kent immediately comes to mind. In 2009, the Brooklyn-based producer and DJ got the opportunity to collaborate with Nike for a special release commonly referred to as the “112 Pack”, which features the Air Force 1, Air Max 1, and Air Trainer 1 dressed up in an incredible combination of Volt tones, Elephant Print, and Reflective panels. The three details are indeed honored figments of legendary Nikes of the past, but to see them all together at once? Gotta give credit to Clark for that.
Sadly, most of the coveted 112 joints were never brought to retail. After the initial triplet in 2009, only the Hyperdunk in 2009 as well as the Nike SB trio (SB Dunks and two P-Rod Highs) hit store shelves. In between those releases is a series of great Samples – mostly LeBrons and Trainers – that have the power to legitimize any sneaker collection out there. Truth be told, there’s probably a lot more “112″ out there that Clark himself and a select few know about, so check out this history of known “112″ samples penned by DJ Clark Kent and let us know which of these you either want badly or own for yourself.
DJ Clark Kents... are they releasing or are you guys just showing us shit most of us can't get our hands on lol
I like the idea. I do not like how it is over done. Like the Air Yeezy color ways people need to stop riding off other color way and be original! That is what the sneaker game is about
All hype this coloreay was good in moderation I remember seeing the lebron 8s at flight club those were nice
