Garren Strong’s Special Edition Jordan Air Ship PE SP Honors Nipsey Hussle and his Legacy

February 12, 2024

Nipsey Hussle’s influence extends beyond the realm of music, resonating strongly with individuals from various industries, including sports and fashion. One individual deeply inspired by Hussle’s journey and ethos is Garren Strong, who recently shared a one-of-a-kind Nipsey Hussle-inspired Air Jordan 1 High 85 sample, paying tribute to Hussle’s album “Victory Lap”. And now, new images have surfaced of another sneaker designed by Strong, this time paying homage to Hussle on the Jordan Air Ship PE SP.

The Jordan Air Ship PE SP “The Marathon Continues” serves as a commemoration of Nipsey’s sixth mixtape, titled “The Marathon Continues”, which was released back in 2011. The sneaker features a white leather upper with aged details and stitching, giving it a nostalgic and timeless feel. The side panels are adorned with bold red graffiti-like text, featuring inspirational words and motifs that reflect Nipsey’s lasting impact on his community and beyond. Additionally, the lace tips bear the “Victory Lap” branding, while the insole showcases “The Marathon Continues” branding, further solidifying the tribute. The aged midsole and vibrant red rubber outsole complete the design, resulting in a visually striking homage that will resonate with both fans of the artist and sneaker culture enthusiasts.

It’s important to note that the Jordan Air Ship PE SP “The Marathon Continues” by Garren Strong is a one-of-a-kind creation and not available for public purchase. However, its existence serves as a powerful testament to the enduring legacy of Nipsey Hussle and the impact he continues to have. It reminds us of the journey of life, the struggles we face, and the triumphs we achieve through perseverance and dedication.
