Nike Lunar Force 1 “Sheed” Release with Rasheed Wallace

There are not too many players who can still sell out of their sneakers when they drop: Rasheed Wallace is one of them. Last week, Nike Sportswear at 21 Mercer held a special sneaker release – the Nike Lunar Force 1 “Sheed” in the two Knicks-based colorways. What made the evening crazy was an appearance by Rasheed Wallace. Sneaker heads along with Sheed's "cult-like" fans lined up the block hoping to cop a pair of the limited release kicks (only 100 pairs in each colorway were made).
Rasheed Wallace is the only player in the NBA to ever ink a deal with Nike to wear the Nike Air Force 1 as his signature shoe. In celebration of Sheed's sneaker release, his family and friends from Philadelphia came out to show their support, including Young Chris from the Young Guns who was in the building showing love to his hometown friend. There was tons of press on deck, and Rasheed held interviews with all of the top bloggers (including Russ Bengtson from Complex magazine) dishing out all the details concerning this classic release.
It was a great day and I got a chance to leave with a pair of signed AF1 Lunar Rasheed Wallace kicks. These sneakers will definitely not be on my feet!
