Classics Revisited: Bobbito Garcia x Nike Air Force 1 High “Mac ‘N Cheese” (2007)
Following up on Monday’s Classics Revisited feature of Bobbito Garcia’s ‘Beef ‘N Broccoli’ is the ‘Mac ‘N Cheese’ Air Force 1 High; these were also designed by Bobbito as part of his personal ‘Winter’ Pack of December 2007, drawing inspiration from two significant pieces of NYC-popularized footwear. The ‘Beef ‘N Broccoli’ was a reference to the Timberland Field Boot, but the ‘Mac ‘N Cheese’ (also referred to plainly as the ‘Wheat’) was a tribute to the Timberland Classic 6″ Work Boot – perhaps one of the most popular footwear selections in history. For decades, the work-boot aesthetic spoke to the rugged horizon of the NYC streets, alluding not only to the weather, but to the lifestyle and culture of the city’s urban plateau – no surprise that these iconic boots, despite the ever-changing landscape of trends, continue to hold a firm place in fashion. The ‘Winter Pack’ was truly a treat for New Yorkers designed by one of the truest inhabitants in the culture, so there’s no question that Bobbito’s personal take on Air Force 1s should be a treasured classic!
