This was after the initial Nike SB launch and before things got completely out of hand. The second in Nike's artist series featured the N*E*R*D Dunk High by Pharrell and an absurd Air Force II with clear panels (and complementary socks) by acclaimed NYC artist ESPO. (There was also, inexplicably, a Halle Berry Air Rift which we doubt even Halle remembers.) It's worth noting both for the edgy collab, as well as the speed which they left shelves. The roots of Twitter RSVPs and raffles go deep.
