Mike Krzyewski aka Coach K, has joined with other elite coaches for the 800th Win column on March 1st. To show appreciation and gratitude, Chi McBride and “JB” from Nike’s Innovative Kitchen were approached by Eric Lautenbach head of Nike college basketball, to design a special 1 of 1 Nike Air Force 1 for Coach K and his 800th win.
When the brain storming and creation was done, we have a beautiful pair of Nike Air Force 1 for Coach K featuring a flannel upper, and brass eyelets. They had “Duke” written with suede inserted between the upper leather and pushed through a cutout in the white coach leather.
Chi McBride, JB, and Eric Lautenbach also put together a wooden box which actually comes from old basketball floor boards. The names of Coach K’s parents, brother, wife and three daughters are lasered onto the box. Via Rockdeep at nt.
