TJ is a super talented hip hop dancer. He shares his craft at a number of studios around the Portland area on a weekly basis – I often take his class at Urban Arts in NE Portland on Monday evenings at 730pm. You are welcome to swing by, drop in and see what TJ has in store!
Kicks in TJ’s hands: Nike x CassettePlaya Dunk Hi Premiums
He purchased them at Compound in 2009. They were on sale and the only pair left…miraculously, in his size! He loves the bright colors, the three pairs of laces and the detailed graphics on the tongue tags and the toe box. Thanks for sharing your unique kicks, TJ!
Who, what, when, where, why? Nike teamed up with CassettePlaya, a label of London-based designer Carri Mundane, to create this Nike Dunk High Premium. Cassette Playa aims to reflect the air of excitement flooding through London’s young and amazing; the brand draws inspiration from 90’s skater fashion, Japanese anime, African prints and neon. Way cool!
