They only released one album back in 1998, but Black Star is still considered a classic hip hop group. The group, composed of Talib Kweli and Mos Def, was the inspiration behind the Nike Air Max 1 “Black Star” Custom by Dank Customs. The classic model is customized to feature a yellow, orange, red gradient color design on the upper. Green covers the toe box and tongue. Pronounced black coloring traces all of the seams, the Swoosh, and the sole. The ankle collar is painted with a yellow to green color pattern, and black laces finish the look. Other custom additions include a “Black Star” patch on the heels and portraits of Mos Def and Talib Kweli on the special made insoles. Finally, the same five point star design that was seen on the groups album cover graces the custom-made tongue decal on the Nike Air Max 1 Black Star Custom. Contact Jake Danklefs for all inquiries.
