Di seguito la ricetta per un perfetto cocktail che chiameremo AKA vs. NIKE ID: prendi i ragazzi di AKA Also Known As, prendi Nike iD, prendi una causa nobilissima, prendi infine 7 scarpe esclusive e fiche. Shakerare per qualche secondo e servire in un tumbler ghiacciato. Ecco servita l'ultima magia in fatto di trainers in giro per il mondo. Scherzi a parte, le scarpe hanno delle colorazioni indovinate (anche se noi non ce la facciamo a farci piacere la patent leather...) e il sistema dell'auction porterà a prezzi folli per aggiudicarsele, con conseguente alto ricavato per le persone del freeartsnyc.org. Insomma, tutto è bene quello che finisce bene.

Charity Auction, May 10th — May 17th, 2006
Inspired by vintage spray paint colors as featured in ALSO KNOWN AS v1, this collection of seven patent leather Nike Dunk Lo's was created by NIKEiD exclusively for ALSO KNOWN AS. Starting May 10th at 7pm EST, the collection will be auctioned to the highest bidder, with all proceeds going to the Free Arts NYC, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the healing powers of the arts into the lives of abused, neglected and at-risk children and their families [freeartsnyc.org]. This collection is one of only five sets produced and will not be available at retail. Each shoe is US size 9 and will be exhibited at Alife Rivington Club from May 8th through May 17th, when the auction will conclude. The highest bidder will win this exclusive collection along with all three colorways of ALSO KNOWN AS v1 [including the rare gold foil cover version limited to 250 copies worldwide] personally signed by contributing artists KAWS, FUTURA and REAS.
