The sneaker is of course pretty sick, no rx a limited run that gives props to Jersey’s Own ABA New Jersey Americans – the team that would eventually become the New York Nets, physician then the NJ nets, and now the Brooklyn Nets. Know your history boys and girls.
The stripes are in the Jersey Americans original colors, and the inside camo is for the Teaneck armory in Teaneck New Jersey where the Americans played in 1967 and 1978 . Teaneck is also the Home of Packer shoes.
But what is even cooler – is the mixtape by yours truly that comes with the sneaker . With EVERY Purchase of the Conductor HI Jersey sneaker you get the mixtape FREE . OR , if ya come to the store to visit in person, they’ll hook ya up for free while ya shop ;)
Packers X DJ Neil Armstrong – ABA Americans / Much love to Jersey
Liner Notes :
New Jersey, arguably the most slept on state of our country. This mixtape, like the sneaker release is all about giving props to Packer shoes, and Jersey’s forgotten history.
The Team Now known as the Brooklyn Nets has moved around quite a bit. But before they were called the NETS, they were called the Americans in the American Basketball Association.
And the Americans Played in Teaneck New Jersey from 67 – 68.
Like the Americans, every artist on this cd has “roots” in jersey. Yes – even SugarHill Gang, one of the pioneer hip hop groups was originally from Englewood NJ. The Song ‘Beggin’ by Newark born Frankie Valli came out in 1967 when The Americans made their ABA debut.
Shouts to Packer Shoes and adidas for bringing this all together.
