Streetball legend John Strickland has left a profound and lasting impression on those that surrounded him, as even Jay-Z himself used one of Strick’s coined terms in of his of songs. Strickland was one of those individuals who ‘walked’ the ‘talk’, and Nike Sportswear decided to honor the fallen hero with a pair of Nike Air Force 1 Lows in a classic White/Gum colorway. This ‘Classic for Classic’ approach was well received by sneakerheads and Air Force 1 connoisseurs in particular, and the ‘Finish Your Breakfast’ message on the tongue label was the perfect way to send his message to the younger generation; WEST in New York City has these available right now so head there quickly as supplies are limited, but if you miss out, grab a pair on eBay.

It seems as if a bunch of celebrity sneakerheads are turning to the never-fail Cement IIIs these days, and with a re-release going down in about two months, everybody wants to get in as many ‘wears’ as possible before settling for a fresh new pair.

You know by now that Jigga is a Jordan-head. Despite his propensity for luxury brands and the massive clout he has to dumb out on the high-end fashion tip, he is still caught in Air Jordans fairly frequently. Last time we saw Jay it was in the Otis video rocking the ‘Banned’ Air Jordan 1′s, and in the above shot we see him in 1′s again, this time the Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Celtics’. The photo is from an interview between Jay and industry old-guard Steve Stoute, aka the dude who Puffy was cracking bottles over back in the 90′s. Let us know how this ranks among Jay-Z’s other sneakerhead moments and take a look at listings for the Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Celtics’ after the jump. via Complex/AOL.

Nike Air Force 1 Low – John Strickland ‘Finish Your Breakfast’

September 6th, 2011 by | 9 comments

nike air force 1 low strickland eat your breakfast 05 Nike Air Force 1 Low   John Strickland Finish Your Breakfast

Few, if any at all, carry the amount of respect and tradition as the Nike Air Force 1 Low. It’s no wonder that it’s often used for commemorative releases and special editions, like this distinct all-white Air Force 1 Low made in honor of streetball legend John ‘Franchise’ Strickland. Strickland, who passed away last year, was also a childhood friend of Brooklyn-born hip-hop artist Jay-Z; Strickland coined the phrase ‘Finish Your Breakfast’, which described the act of ‘schooling’ your defender and scoring off the dribble, and was later used by Jay-Z in the ‘PSA’ track in The Black Album. Strickland’s death last October left a profound indent in the basketball and streetball circle, with numerous figures in support expressing support and mourning.

While all-white in nature, the Air Force 1 Low ‘Finish Your Breakfast’ features a number of personalized details, like the tongue label, a Nike NYC logo on the insole, ‘Franchise’ molded into the leather on the heels, and ‘XI’ featured on the heel-tabs. According to fendi_nyc on ISS, the quality of the leather used is of premium grade, and reminiscent of Air Force 1 Low releases from over a decade ago. He further states that the ‘Finish Your Breakfast’ Air Force 1 Low will be a very limited release in the coming months – possibly in October to recognize the one-year anniversary of his untimely passing.

The much anticipated debut of the music video for Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Otis’ went live, featuring the two hip-hop juggernauts dipping around an American flag back-dropped lot in a modified Maybach with a backseat full of ladies and a little stunt driving help from comedian, Aziz Ansari. Jay-Z and Kanye were both seen in Air Jordan Retros, which might not have been a huge surprise, but is obviously always a nice touch, especially when it’s a team effort. Kanye wore the Air Jordan VI, a shoe that we’ve seen the hip-hop mega-star wear time and time again, while Jay-Z, recently named the highest paid hip-hop artist in the world, wore a fresh pair of the Air Jordan 1 Banned. Check out a bunch more pics below and let us know who takes the “throne” when it comes to the ‘Otis’ kicks.
