“In the ‘90s, athletes spoke volumes with their bold attitude and unique style in and out of the game. Today, OBJ pays tribute to ‘90s turf style, while making a statement all his own with the OBJ Air Max 720. The 'Young King of the People' colorway combines innovative design elements with a muted palette, reflecting both OBJ’s expressive taste and steadfast work ethic –a take on his leadership on and off the field.” - Nike.com
