In the first episode of this three-part mini-documentary series, Elza Jo follows the origins of the Nike Air BW through the eyes of the first original gabber, bubbling, and grime DJs and producers. How did the Nike Air BW become a symbol of these genres? As part of their uniform, an essential expression of identity.
Since we cherish so many memories of the BW, this is our ode to a childhood icon for Nike. We made this series as a team, being fans of this legendary shoe ourselves. Check out grime, bubbling, and Gabber OG’s like Jammer, DJ Target, Mc Pester, DJ Moortje, Paul Elstak, Gizmo, and Darkraver.
