When you put a Nike SB model and an A Tribe Called Quest album in the same sentence you’ve got my attention and it just so happens that this Nike SB “Low End Theory” Blazer is a combination of two of my favorites. While ’09s Air Jordan 1 High Strap “A Tribe Called Quest” was a bit more literal this one uses tonal suede designs across the upper of the skate silhouette to invoke the feel of the groups trademark cover art. This subtle ode to the album that spawned “Scenario” and pummeled “sophomore slump” rhetoric is set to release in September.
Donwill may be better known as a member of Tanya Morgan and solo artist but he also harbors a pretty healthy addiction to sneakers. When he’s not creating soulful Hip-Hop songs he can be found writing about soles full of visible Air over at Kicks On Fire.
