Ghana and Sierra Leone Inspire the IDK x Nike Air Max 97 “Free Coast” F&F

Rapper IDK pulled up to his old high school to unveil his new Nike Air Max 97 “Free Coast” F&F. The exclusive pair was inspired by his parents and their heritages from Ghana and Sierra Leone.

Taking the colors from each country’s respective flag, IDK created his own flag which he named, “Free Coast.” Using the Free Coast colors, IDK integrated a gradient midstripe within the Nike Air Max 97. The sneaker is otherwise White with Black hits on the laces, Swoosh, and outsole. Finishing details include a full AIR unit midsole, gradient tongue tag, and Red insole.

IDK also created the Free Coast flag to serve as a reminder for African-Americans to not forget where they came from and the broader topic of slavery.

While the IDK x Nike Air Max 97 “Free Coast” F&F won’t be releasing to the public, you can check out the pair below. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Twitter.
