DJ AM Dunk High
We first heard of the collabo between Nike & Adam on AM's twitter account in early 2009. After AM's death, we weren't sure if this shoe would ever come out, but Nike pays homage to the influential DJ/sneakerhead with the DJ AM Dunk High.
Paying tribute to the DJ's weapon of choice, the turntable, the shoe features a perforated heel; mimicing the sides of a turntable platter.
The tone arm of the turntable is honored with the silver swoosh & the tongue tag features DJ AM's logo.
Simple, clean; there is nothing wrong with this tribute sneaker.
Thanks to Josh & Yann at NORML for helping me out and getting a pair into my hands.
