This is some of the benefits that NBA champions get, a shoe created in their honor. Nike have collaborated with Israel Mateo, a designer at the NIKEiD studio of the “21 Mercer” store in SoHo, New York, for a special edition of the iconic Air Force 1 commemorating Dirk Nowitzki and his first NBA championship.
Dirk’s victory is forever immortalized on the shoe which features various themes from the 2010-11 NBA season for the Mavericks : the colors of his team, his famed basketball signature move, the so called “fadeaway,” his shirt number and the date on which he became world champion.
And because such a special shoe does not belong in an ordinary box, the “Dreambox,” was created: made by hand with wood from a basketball court and engraved with Nike’s message to Dirk and every athlete who has a body: “All dreams are crazy until they come true. Dirk did it.”
What do you guys think of the shoe?
