An ode to the White Uptown

DJ E-Z Rock Wears AF1s on the "It Takes Two" Cover
Sneaker: Air Force 1
Year: 1988

Sneakers were becoming increasingly elaborate, and we pondered why he picked a plain, stack-soled creation like this over the air-bubbled Revolution or a Max, but now we understand. This was major exposure for a regional favorite.
