STASH has had a longstanding relationship with Nike and in this video he discusses his sneaker career, starting out as a relatively uneducated shoe store owner to where he is today. The graffiti artist opened Recon boutique in 1998 and he discusses the STASH x Nike Air Classic BW, that he still calls his favorite shoe. He explains the origin of the colorway, saying that the MTA subway was a key influence for the shoe and how it was part of a charity package.

He also discusses his love of GORE-TEX and how he’d always wanted to use the fabric on the shoe. He also discusses his later collaborations, such as the Air Max 95. Watch the video above to see how the artist feels about his collaborations, how Nike’s engineers are unsung heroes and more.
