Nike Sportswear alongside heralded DJ A-Trak are paying tribute to their efforts on the Nike+ Original Run album, Running Man” as the two team-up on a pair of custom NIKE iD Dunks. The Dunks feature A-Trak chosen colors and a lasered logo on the heel. A-Trak’s album itself represented a new challenge for the Montreal-born, New-York based DJ who’s list of achievements include DMC World Champion at 15 as well as serving as DJ to Kanye West. While not coming from a running background, the album required some serious thought relative to A-Trak’s usual musical releases which cater more to short-attention span audiences. The electro meets hip-hop album offers many memorable beats and works alongside a runner’s progression from the warm-up all the way through the painful last few strides and really showcases both A-Trak’s current interests and hip-hop background.

A-Trak x NIKE iD Experience
As the two joined forces awhile back to create A-Trak’s Running Man” album, the 45 minute piece of hip-hop and electro genius was the 4th installment in the Nike+ Original Run series. The series of albums looked to create the perfect accompaniment for a work-out as the progression went from warm-up to full-intensity beats. As part of the whole project, A-Trak stepped into Nike’s famed New York iD studio to put his own touches on the all too familiar Dunk High. The final result seen here is a testament to A-Trak’s own bold and eclectic stylings.
