Kickers Fancy Footwork

Posted in Film, Music with tags , , on December 19, 2008 by Jaybo

I can remember back in school a friend rocked up on no uniform day wearing a bright red pair of Kickers, he was the envy of the playground. South London has always seemed to be one of those areas where micro trends evolve, even today all kids are still sporting kickers. From the rave scene years back till present day, Kickers has had a massive presence in youth culture.

Thanks to Kickers and Splendid for inviting us to the preview of the Fancy Footwork video. The video was produced by Nottingham duo, Lovebite and featured vocals from Chromeo.
