Growing up in Brooklyn in the early 80's, it was always about style and looking fresh, whether you saved lunch money that your parents gave you, went boostin or caught somebody on the A trin late night, you stayed fresh! And no matter how far we strayed, NIKE always played a large part in urban footwear throughout the years. I always loved my Jordans. I remember getting the 3's as my first pair and was ecstatic when I got them as a gift. They were so comfortable and light plus, YesSir, I was looking F.R.E.S.H. as Doug E Fresh use to say.
Today, I still try to get my hands on a pair of fresh Jordans although my focus is photography. So, I decided to create this image as a combination of to things I "paid" a lot of mind to growing up as a child and now as a man. I was playing with graphic editing around this time in my early stages, so the Jordan man had to emerge. I was open when I originally created this, all I gotta say is "PEEP the SHADOW!"...LoL!
