Top-ranking Japanese sound system/musical empire Mighty Crown is celebrating its 20th anniversary with two pairs of new shoes: their fourth and fifth special edition sneakers for Nike. “The Far East Rulers” have had unprecedented international popularity in the reggae/dancehall scene and are the only sound system to have a deal with Nike. The new kicks, Dunks and Sky Forces, sport the Mighty Crown logo on the tongue and are made even more exclusive by the images of Mighty Crown’s sound clash trophies on the sole. The sneakers are just the latest addition to the Yokohama-based group’s already growing empire, which includes the sound system, a record label and brand of clothing. Check out some more photos of the sneakers here.
