"The classic UGK sneaker. That was the shoe Pimp and I wore everyday for the first 8 or 10 years of our career, and especially for performances. In Texas, we call them the 'Gangster Nikes,' which you have to be careful about, because a gangster Nike in Texas is a Cortez. In Louisana, a 'G-Nike,' another term for a gangster Nike—is an Air Force 1. The Texas gangster Nike is a staple of UGK. It's the shoe of choice for street hustlers because it's sturdy enough to handle most gates and fences, but light enough for you to make that fast getaway if needed."
