I love sneakers. I love how they tell stories. I love how different designs can attract someone’s eye. I love how one modification of a sneaker can instantly make me fall in love with a sneaker and I love how one modification of a sneaker can instantly make me hate it (i.e. Aqua 8s).
However, there is very few shoes that people universally like and go crazy for examples, the Banned Jordan 1s and Yeezy 350 Boost. Seeing this phenomenon happen a classic silhouette such as the Air Max 97s, is dope.
Meet Sean Wotherspoon.
“Who is Sean Wotherspoon?” you ask. Sean Wotherspoon is a co-owner of the vintage store, Round Two, also co-owner of a Youtube channel of the same name and a HUGE sneakerhead. More importantly, he is the winner of Nike’s RevolutionAIR program.
Now, there was 11 more other winners, but as far as I know, his design of the shoe overall, in addition to how the shoe is built is the biggest standout by far.
Check out how it’s put together below, Sean’s thoughts on the process here, as well as the unboxing of it as well.
