Above the rim

When it comes to ice creams, I’ve been an Adidas guy ever since I tried on my first pair of Gazelles 14 years ago. But as a teenager, I was all about the Nikes. My room was covered in Bo Knows, MARS and Air Force 1 posters while the closet was packed with all the Air Max, ACG Cross-trainers and Air Jordan’s my summer jobs let me afford.

And I wasen’t frontin’ either. This was before beer, so I was actually pretty athletic back then. In fact, my only addiction was to kicking ass on the courts or the soccer pitch. And yes, I could touch rim.

Aw crap, I’m starting to sound like one of those “this is your brain on” anti-fun ads.

Anyway, GQ’s slideshow on the history of Nike Air brings back memories I thought had been lost to boozin’. Remains to be seen if that is a good thing. woot?
