A style icon on and off the court, the Air Force 1 white/white colorway launching in the Holiday 2011 Nike Sportswear collection pays homage to New York City basketball legend John Strickland. The ultimate entertainer, “Strick” brought an undeniable bravado and signature style to the game. Known for his phrase, “finish your breakfast,” meaning beating your defender off the dribble, Strickland’s passing in 2010 was a sad loss in the basketball community. Nike’s AF1 homage to the legend includes signature details reminiscent of Strick, a custom tongue tab with “finish your breakfast” is the highlight. The shoe launches globally at select retailers in October.
