Classics Revisited: Bobbito Garcia x Nike Air Force 1 High “Beef ‘N Broccoli” (2007)

air force 1 high bobbito beef n broc Classics Revisited: Bobbito Garcia x Nike Air Force 1 High Beef N Broccoli (2007)


While the population of ‘celebrity sneakerheads’ has skyrocketed over the last few years, the number legit influencers and tastemakers in the basketball and sneaker culture is rather small, as it includes an exclusive set of individuals who continue to be noble voices in the game. One such member of that group is Bobbito Garcia aka Kool Bob Love, a life-long New Yorker who made a respectable name not only for his verity as a sneaker connoisseur, but a curator of hip-hop music, streetball, b-boy culture, and anything that gave the urban New York City landscape true meaning. He’s authored a must-read book titled ‘Where’d You Get Those?’ and hosted a television program on ESPN2 called ‘It’s The Shoes’, where he explored the sneaker game through dope collections and stories from fellow sneaker connoisseurs.

In 2007, he continued his partnership with Nike Sportswear for a quartet of Air Force 1 Highs; the Air Force 1 High is another quintessential ‘NYC’ sneaker and a sure-fire staple of the fashion scene, but he brought in another local element and staple of the harsh NYC winter – the Timberland Field Boot in the famous ‘Beef ‘N Broc’ colorway. He adopted the Brown/Olive Green combination onto the equally rugged Air Force 1 High, complete with a leather square hang-tag (typically accompanied by Timberland footwear products) and identical suede and canvas materials. The final touches is his personal logo that depicts a hand over a spinning record, the pressed-leather mold of ‘LOVE’ on the tongue. This colorway was part of the ‘Winter Pack’, which also featured another Bobbito-designed Air Force 1 High designed after another significant footwear icon of NYC, and both released in December of 2007. More of this Air Force 1 High that definitely deserves its spot in Classics Revisited below, so take a look and let us know what you think!
