Nike Helps Out President Obama's Shoe Game

As a child, we all had dreams of becoming an astronaut, doctor, lawyer, or even president. For Barack Obama, that came true as he finishes his second term as the leader of the United States. On Friday morning, Obama left the White House and traveled westwards to Oregon to give a speech at Nike's headquarters.

After speaking on his plans to help bring back Nike production and labor, the Nike head honchos (Mark Parker and Tinker Hatfield) hooked up the POTUS with a pair of black Air Jordan 11Lab4. These aren't just a leftover pair from the April 25th general release; these were created with a special box. The box has hinges and so we can expect that to be a wooden box with the inside of the lids featuring the official seal of the US President. 


While we have an idea of what this was, there were reports that Obama was receiving a new Jordan model.  was in the works. That wasn't all. Parker also had a pair of red, white, and blue NIke Air Force 1, US created Flyknits, and the new Jordan MTM (Mark, Tinker, Michael)
