When the Nike Air force 1 debuted in the early 80’s the brand wasn’t sure of the sneaker’s future. But in Baltimore the AF1’s were poppin and fans of the kicks helped keep it alive. It’s was B-More’s love for the kicks that would that would eventually lead to more variations of the model being produced.
As a homage to the city of Baltimore, Nike has created a commemorative edition of its Special Field Air Force 1 Mid’s called “For Baltimore”.
The “For Baltimore” kicks come in a black textured colorway on the upper sitting on top of a classic gum sole. “B’More” is embroidered in big letters on its strap with “’84” embroidered on its lateral side and on its hangtag as well. These kicks look nice!!
Now for all my HipHop art lovers out there, these kicks will be coming in a box with illustrations Ed Piskor (Creator Of the HipHop Family Tree comic book series). Ed also made a comic that will be accompanying the kicks which highlights the notable names who helped increase the popularity of the AF1 during the 80’s. And it’s looking like it’ll be done in that HipHop Family Tree style, that’s wassup!
The Nike’s SF AF-1 Mid “For Baltimore” will be dropping tomorrow, September 30, exclusively at Downtown Locker Room’s Mondawin Mall and Monument Street locations in Baltimore!!
Now we remember when people use to ask us “Why does SugarCayne.com feature HipHop, BMX & Comics? They don’t really go together” LOL!! And Now here we have some kicks that are inspired by HipHop culture, come with an illustrated box and comic book and the kicks are perfect for flat pedal pushing on your bike 😉
