Hip Hop Family Tree and X-Men: Grand Design creator Ed Piskor is teaming up with Nike to put his stamp on a special edition Field Air Force 1 Mid “For Baltimore” sneaker.
“If I do work for hire, I’m only going to work on dream projects or things that blow my mind,” he told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
The shoe “pays homage with B’More detailing, a custom-embroidered strap, an ’84 hangtag and comic-inspired insoles. The shoes come in a box illustrated by artist Ed Piskor, who also created a comic book telling the story of the key players who helped keep the Air Force 1 in production,” according to Nike.
Check out the comic, the box and the sneakers below:
The shoes will only be available at the Downtown Locker Room in Mondawmin Mall and on Monument Street in Baltimore. As part of the release, Piskor will create a mural on the site of the former Cinderella Shoes and Charley Rudo Sports stores.
