I’m not big on team sports but even I know that its pretty impressive to be able to play two sports at a professional level. This is exactly what Bo Jackson did with American Football and Baseball in the late 80s/early 90s, making him the perfect front man for Nike’s cross trainer ads of the time. The ads starred a host of sports stars and spawned the catch phrase “Bo Knows”, which I remember hearing at the time but never knew what it meant.
Nike is currently honouring their former ambassador with a line of Nike Dunks. I’m such a sucker for dunks. They have some kind of hypnotic effect on me. Each new colour combination turns my head and these are no exception. My favourite is the grey/black/yellow ones which can be purchased from Size?’s on-line store. [via Nice Kicks]
