Welcome to Art Piece Friday…….
This week is all about Nigel Sylvester and his collab with brand Jordan for the iconic Jordan 1 edition. Nigel best known for his skills riding his bike throughout the city of New York. Mr. Sylvester was born in Queens , New York and unlike other professional bike athletes he do not compete, instead built his career through social media and You tube.
Already being sponsored by the legendary brand Nike, I feel this collab was a no brainer. Nigel having over 700,000 followers on Instagram and millions of video views it was likely that this SB Nike lover would have a cultural push towards the sneaker world.
First ever to be featured in ESPN Body issue he’s defiantly knocking down incredible doors for the next big BMX Professional. I personally thought the shoe was trash before I understood it was a collab and the dingy distress look was all do to the fact he was a dope bike rider. Now of course knowing the back round and the detail that this Jordan OG 1 come with I might pick up a pair, much success to him and his future endeavors, this sneaker is dropping tomorrow everywhere don’t sleep.
See next Friday, no Ice Cube
