Faisal is a hip hop dancer from Sydney and I spotted him with his Charles Barkley Collection Air Force 1 Hi Tops while he was walking around Surry Hills with his girlfriend.

He purchased the shoes from Hype DC last year, and they have been a popular addition to his shoe collection which is predominantly Nike based. Due to their rarity, these classically styled shoes with great neutral colouring are some of Faisal’s personal favourites and he doesn’t wear them too often, so I was lucky to catch him in them.

Faisal and his hip hop crew compete in local dance competitions, and his footwear of choice for the dancefloor are white on white Air Force 1′s, so if you get a chance to see them in action keep an eye out for Faisal’s moves, and his classic footwear.
