It is not a surprise that Bobbito, a Hip-Hop legend and member of the infamous Rock Steady Crew, is addicted to this sneaker as well. Bobbito has had multiple collaborations with Nike before but this one is different and more special. This Nike Air Force 1 is a 1/1 custom designed by us and made by @blunt_shank and shows Bobbito’s characteristics. The different shades of blue in the swoosh symbolizes the five elements of Bobbito: Writing, DJing, Basketball, Filmmaking and sneakers. And the orange highlights represent his hometown New York City so that the colorway pays homage to the New York Knicks. In addition, you can find the five elements shown as icons on the heelcap. And on the insole, there are the cast of his movie “Rock Rubber 45s” shown by name.
