Many of you may know of the Lebron 7 / 8 “112” sneaker, some may not know DJ Clark Kent designed those shoes.  Others may not know that he has collaborated on many other sneakers, way before the Lebron 7.

His first “112 pack” was releases in 2008 all with the same color scheme Silver 3M, Elephant Print, and that laser lime green accent.  112 Air Max 1 / 112 Air Force 1 / 112 Air Trainer 1

So questions of the day is, who is DJ Clark Kent? What does 112 stand for?  Good questions, lets dig in a little.  DJ Clark Kent is a hip hop DJ and Producer (not every DJ is a producer for those wondering, some play music, others create it).  He is cousins with “Foxy Brown”, helped discover the rapper “shyne”, oh and he did a little work with a guy named Jay-Z on “Reasonable Doubt”  It is fitting that the most popular track on that album (IMO) “brooklyn’s finest” was produced by DJ Clark Kent.  And for those that didnt know, “112” is the Brooklyn Area Code.  (thanks tblake for filling me in).

It seems that sneakers and DJs are almost synonymous. DJ AM, DJ Skee, DJ Clark Kent, DJ Hes (lolol) but there are some that will just be on that next level, DJ Clark Kent has proven he has been and remains in that spot.

Some of the other sneakers within the “112” area code collaboration:
