JB Classics x DJ Funkmaster Flex x Ford
I'm a fan of JB Classics. Not a fanatic necessarily (I reserve that for my New Balance obsession) but I appreciate the moves they make in an industry dominated by billion dollar multi-national corporations. Two sneakers drop in this 3 way collaboration. One with Funk Master Flex (the over hyped and under talented NYC DJ...and as I call him a DJ every real DJ on the planet cringes), and the other with one of those multi-national corporations i was just referring to, Ford.
I prefer the Ford colorway from an overall design perspective (the classic Ford Blue is really sweet), but there is somethin' about the FMF colors that really draws the eye. The lime green and blue just really work well together in this shoe, especially with the red laces and speckled mid-sole. Crazy colors on both and I always like the JB "fruity pebbles" sole.
Like all the special projects from JB Classics, the FMF shoe is packaged with two sets of laces, is individually numbered, and comes with a Certificate of Ownership and cinch bag. Limited to 240 pairs worldwide! Looks like the Ford version will not be available for sale at all...what's up with that?!?
