What is the highest form of honor one can receive? That depends on the field of influence. In the military, there exists a number of ribbons. In the world of science, there is the Nobel Peace Prize. For NYC streetball legends, nothing’s higher than the Nike Air Force 1. John Strickland’s unfortunate passing in October of 2010 has led to a year-long remembrance of the streetball legend, and this weekend, Nike Basketball will pay tribute to one of the pioneers of the NYC streetball scene by releasing a special edition pair of the Nike Air Force 1. As detailed earlier by Sneaker News, the Nike Air Force 1 ‘Strick’ features a number of significant details, namely the ‘Finish Your Breakfast’ tongue label. These will officially drop this weekend at 21 Mercer, Niketown, and House of Hoops at both 34th St. and Harlem locations, so don’t miss out on one of the best white-on-white AF1s we’ve seen in a long while!
