Nipsey Hussle's influence transcends music, touching the hearts and minds of individuals across various industries, including sports and fashion. Garren Strong, deeply inspired by Hussle's journey and ethos, shared his 1-of-1 Nipsey Hussle-inspired Air Jordan 1 High 85 sample that celebrated the album Victory Lap. Now images have emerged of a second sneaker that pays homage to Hussle, this time on the Jordan Air Ship PE SP.
The Jordan Air Ship PE SP The Marathon Continues commemorates Nipsey's sixth mixtape, The Marathon Continues, which was released in 2011. The white leather upper is accented with aged details and stitching, evoking a sense of nostalgia and timeless appeal. The side panels are adorned with graffiti-like text in bold red, featuring inspirational words and motifs that echo Nipsey's lasting impact on his community and beyond. The Victory Lap branding on the lace tips directly nods to Nipsey's acclaimed work, while the insole bears The Marathon Continues branding, further solidifying the tribute. The aged midsole and vibrant red rubber outsole round off the design, creating a visually striking homage that resonates with fans of both the artist and the sneaker culture.
While this Jordan Air Ship PE SP The Marathon Continues by Garren Strong is a 1-of-1 creation and not available for public purchase, its existence is a powerful testament to the enduring legacy of Nipsey Hussle and the impact he continues to have. It's a reminder of the marathon of life, the struggles faced, and the triumphs achieved through perseverance and dedication.
