First and foremost I would like to say a few things before I get into the reason why I am here. Thank you to MaZe for having me on KATC. This is a dope website and I’m honored. Next I would just like to apologize to the readers, because it has taken me way too long to get started here, and last but not least, if it wasn’t for Nike and the ill kicks they have released within the last 34 years…I wouldn’t more than likely be known beyond my native Philadelphia.
I owe a lot to sneakers and the game that surrounds it. I always wanted to play basketball and be a known face on tv. Just yesterday, I received a call from one of my homeboys. He was in NYC at the Nike iD studio and he says out of the blue he’s watching me on a big screen talking about the history of the Nike Air Force 1.
All I can say is wow. Because I remember the days when I didn’t have any sneakers, let alone a pair that I wanted. But with hard work, family support, and ambition, I am able to live my dream, and aspire to dream new ones.
You can catch me in Sole Collector Magazine as I write a column entitled BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY , and I am also featured in the Air Force 1 editions of Sneaker Freaker (Thanks Woody) and PEACE Magazine (Good lookin’ out Harris), and oh yeah how could I forget my own site, www.anthonyxgilbert.com
