NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HIGH WEEK

Nike’s made a number of significant advancements in nasketball design in the 21st Century. Born out of the 00’s were a number of memorable Shox, Posite, and Huarache designs, but one eccentric player and Nike athlete grabbed hold of an early 80’s model so tightly that Nike had no choice but to concede to his demands and give him what he wanted. That player, of course, is Rasheed Wallace – the UNC standout who started his bright career with the Washington Bullets, became the noted leader of the troublesome mod-squad in Portland, and became a world champion in Detroit. Sheed loved to play ball in the Air Force 1 High over any other model, so eventually Nike acquiesced to his penchant for old-school over new and a number of Air Force 1 High ‘Sheed’ colorways released with one of the dopest PE silhouette logos in Nike history. Rasheed’s unorthodox style made him a serious offensive threat around the league, but it was his Tech-friendly babbling and post- and in-game commentary that made him one of most colorful players of all-time; he mastered the art of the post-game interview with “Both teams played hard” and brought the streetball rules to game by shouting “the ball don’t lie!” while the player who he allegedly fouled missed both free-threw attempts.

Tonight’s particular model for Classics Revisited is the 2006 release of the Sheed’s All-Star colorway; 2006 was a special year for Rasheed and the Detroit Pistons, as he was one of four Pistons starters named to the 2006 NBA All-Star team. During that game, Rasheed wore a slightly different colorway of this Air Force 1 High PE, although this version did release to the public in extremely limited quantities; it featured an ostrich-skin forefoot with a unique two-toned patent leather heel (using the tail-end of the Swoosh as a border), and is considered by many Air Force 1 collectors as one of the best High-tops to have ever become available. The ’06 All-Star Game was one of his four All-Star Game Air Force 1 appearances, as he wore his own shoes in 2000, 2001, and 2008. In addition, the term ‘Sheed’ has become common verbage in Air Force 1 discussions as well, and no Air Force 1 collection is complete without at least one pair of the ‘Sheed-away’ Forces stashed away. More of this rare Air Force 1 High below, so take a look and let us know what Air Force 1 ‘Sheeds you have in your collection!
