On Saturday night I attended a special event for the 25th anniversary of Nike’s Air Force 1 sneaker line. The venue was the new Star Ferry pier located on the waterfront in Hong Kong’s Central neighborhood.

Star Ferry is Hong Kong’s answer to the Staten Island Ferry in New York – you get an amazing view of the city and it’s the cheapest deal in town. Star Ferry recently relocated for the first time in fifty years from Queen’s Pier to pier 7 of the outlaying island ferry piers, accross from the IFC complex.

The event and exhibition, which featured over one-hundred Air Force 1 shoes was held above the ferry terminal in a two-story open space that was divided into rooms. Nike also flew out sneaker collector / personality / street-ball player Bobbito Garcia to D.J. for the night. A crew of dancers (featured in the photo above,) as well as Hong Kong’s own D.J. Tommy also performed.

Although I had to leave just as most guests were arriving, I was able to snap some photos of the shoes and the party set-up!
