We partnered with iconic sports and lifestyle photographer Gary Land to re-imagine some of his most iconic and intimate images of my hero, allen iverson… ironically the color blocking of this sneaker was inspired and informed by allen’s “the question”…as we embark on chicago this weekend for NBA All-Star 2020, I wanted to celebrate the kid who grew up on Jordan Drive in Virginia and aspired to be like his hero… similar to AI the creator places forks in all our roads. where what came before can only inspire to a point, therefore leading to THE question… do you in fact listen to the questions of doubt in the arena, and allow that to be your truth? or do you recognize this moment that God has plans that far supersede your wildest dreams… although you played in your idols shoes in college, the responsibility of standing in your own signature design requires the faith and conviction to walk in your own destiny…whats for you may not come in the form you expected or prepared for, and without visible answers your faith must be rooted in the unseen… how do you handle yourself surrounded by uncertainty? one faith step can make things clear… AIR was called to carry the game to new heights. AI was called to carry a people and a culture to new heights… Mike may have more rings, but once you’re in line with your creator you realize your rings come in different forms… where the absence of answers live, faith is born… i hope this encourages all of us to celebrate our heroes, but to have the insight to hear God’s still voice when he directs our path away from our plans and into His destiny.
