words // Pierce Simpson:
Within the landscape of American Sports cinema, you have your fair share of notable franchises and feature length films. From the 30 for 30 lineage to He Got Game to the iconic Hoosiers, the variety of movies for sports enthusiasts is all-encompassing. However, a film that at times gets overlooked to many is the nostalgic â€œdramedyâ€ White Men Canâ€™t Jump. Featuring dynamic stars such as Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson and the lovely Rosie Perez, this early 90â€™s classic had its fair share of notable lines and brilliant acting.
With that in mind, noted custom sneaker artist Dezcustomz recently provided his artistic interpretation to a pair of towering Nike Air Command Forces that were featured in the aforementioned film. Arriving in an array of different color schemes, detailed imagery of the two main characters are painted within the upper of each model while resting atop of the usual Nike Air Command Force outsole.
