Obama Dunks On McCain With Sole!

Obama is the new millennium politician. This dude is so viral it’s scary. He even has people selling bootleg shirts on the streets of Brooklyn, street artist throwing up pieces in cities all over America, rappers are dropping his name and giving him shout outs on records. I was at the club the other night and this chick had on a “Bee-dazzled” Obama hat, and a couple of other dudes had on some Shepard fairy knock-off tee shirts. It is clear that Barack Obama is the elected “hip hop generation’s” presidential candidate, and it is only right that he drops some exclusive kicks. Someone had to do it.

The Dunk on the McCain exhibit just opened last night in Portland. Yes Portland, Oregon! The exhibit was created by acclaimed Artist Jimm Lasser, and featured the Obama Force One. The Obama Force One is a half-art piece, half sneaker that was brilliantly displayed, garnering lots of attention and talk. The bottom of one sneaker bears the statement “A black man runs, the nation is behind him” while the other features a shot of Barack Obama. For the night of the opening launch, special limited edition Sole prints were available for purchase.
