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.
