Mitchell Rose, a Brooklyn, NY resident is looking to change the footwear industry like Barack Obama changed politics (Quote curiosity of NBC). The former New York Golden Goves boxer has been on the grind for the past couple of months with a brand new hustle, pushing what he calls the official Barack Obama basketball sneakers.
Mitchell says Obama’s love and passion for the game of basketball inspired him to design and actually produce the Barack Obama basketball sneakers which he feels even the President himself would rock. The shoes obviously takes a few design cues from Nike and Jordan Brand. An Air Jordan 9 mid-sole can clearly been seen on high top sneakers along with a silhouette of Obama (which glows in the dark) placed on the side of the upper which reminds of a Chuck Taylor patch or the branding usually found on an And1 sneaker. The shoe lace holders on the upper are made up to look like boxing gloves cause according to Mitchell Rose Barack Obama is a “fighter the way he beat up Hilliary Clinton and Senator McCain.” 44 is printed on the tongue of the sneakers to represent Obama being the 44th present and Obama is printed across the heel of the sneakers.
