Nike Air Trainer 1
The Kid Mero: “Stylistically, my favorite sneaker of all-time is the Nike Air Trainer – the “Bo Jacksons.” Those are my favorite sneaker ever, because growing up everybody was like, “Jordan, Jordan, Jordan…” I grew up in the 90s as a Knicks fans, so I hated Michael Jordan. I actively looked for sneakers that Nike was putting out that weren’t Jordans just to be contrarian, even though the sneakers were dope.”
Desus Nice: “You remember the Shawn Kemp Kamikazes? The first ones? Yeah, those would have to be in there because I was a huge Shawn Kemp fan. He had just done damage on Team USA and I remember my cousin ruined it because he was like, “You know Shawn Kemp has mad children that he’s not taking care of?” Of course my response was, “What does that have to do with basketball?” So, my cousin kind of ruined it for me.”
