Nike’s Air Force 1 has always been synonymous with the city of Chicago. A city where hard work and dedication meets unapologetic style and charisma. In partnership with Girl Gaze, Nike is highlighting the untold stories of six Chicago-based creatives who are a manifestation of this mentality. Join Nike at the All For 1 Studio to celebrate these unsung heroes and the work they do for their community. With a donation of a gently used or new pair of athletic footwear, attendees will be able to unlock a special customization experience.

·      Malcolm London, Poet, Activist, Educator, Musician. He runs the largest youth open mic in Chicago alongside his friend, Chance The Rapper.
