Why did K1X hook up with Bobbito Garcia aka DJ Cucumberslice, and let him design his own edition of the Chiefgliders, which is named after his very own bball magazine.
Pick your reasons:
The Editor In Chief of the famous Bounce: From the Playground , bball magazine.
An accomplished Vibe magazine music columnist.
The critically acclaimed author of Where'd You Get Those? NYC's Sneaker Culture 1960-1987
A world-class club DJ.
A basketball performer at NBA halftime shows & on TV commercials.
The guy who self-produced a bball dribbling instructional DVD, Bobbito's Basics to Boogie.
The announcer for EA Sports , NBA Street Series .
A feature film actor, Prison Song , Summer of Sam and music consultant, 25th Hour , Sneaker Heads .
With the world-renowned Rock Steady Crew.
A die-hard bball fan and he played professional in Puerto Rico in 1987.
A talent finder. His Stretch Armstrong/Bobbito Show introduced the world to then unsigned acts like Nas, Jay Z, Big Pun, Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep, and many others that would go on to change the face of Hip Hop today.
From Bobbito's mouth, When I wear these kicks, people come up to me all the time and go Yo, where did you get those? When are they coming out? How can I get them? I get crazy reactions every time I wear them.
These babies are so PHAT that all sizes sold out in Japan in under 3 weeks. Respect given!
This is not a marketing gimmick, it is the truth.
Only 39 pairs will be sold in Hong Kong & China. So numbers are extremely limited. Once they are gone, they are gone.
