Nike has just released a tribute Air Force 1 Quickstrike sneaker to New York streetball player John Strickland, who passed away almost a year ago, at the young age of 38. The sneaker comes in a premium white leather with embossed graphics on the heel and a special tongue tag, as well as tonal lace-lock. The all white upper sits on a natural gum outer sole, making for an overall nice and clean look.
Strickland’s death last October left a profound indent in the basketball and streetball circle, with numerous figures in support expressing support and mourning.
While all-white in nature, the Air Force 1 Low ‘Finish Your Breakfast’ features a number of personalized details, like the tongue label, a Nike NYC logo on the insole, ‘Franchise’ molded into the leather on the heels, and ‘XI’ featured on the heel-tabs.
Apparently, the quality of the leather used is of premium grade, and reminiscent of Air Force 1 Low releases from over a decade ago. This ‘Finish Your Breakfast’ Air Force 1 will be available soon at selected stores.
