Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer – DJ AM Dunk Hi + DJ Premier Air Force 1 Launch Party | Event Recap

It took no time to packed the house last evening as Nike Sportswear’s 21 Mercer Street flagship in New York City marked the special release of 2 much awaited collaborations – the DJ AM Dunk Hi and DJ Premier Air Force 1. Though the official launch of both shoes will not be till this Saturday, January 9th.  However, 30+ sneaker addicts lined last night anyway for the special release pack, a limited edition box set which includes both editions and 2 Serato vinyl records (in matching colorways), all in a customize box.  For an added touch, DJ Premier autographed each box just ahead of the event.

The event also saw live performance from DJ Premier himself and the attendance of fans of both DJs, including DJ Jimmy “JVC” Connolly, who was wearing a pair of Nike Dunk Lo auctioned off from the recentDJ AM Memorial Auction.  All of the proceeds from the Sportswear release will go on to benefit the DJ AM Memorial Fund as well.  If you did not get the opportunity to purchase a pair last evening.  Both DJ AM Dunk Hi and DJ Premier Air Force 1 will be available tomorrow at Nike Sportswear locations in New York City and Los Angeles, along with 11+ retailers across the country.
