Born and raised in the 7th Ward of New Orleans, Louisiana, Chavier Johnson, grew up during the 80's with the Treme as the backdrop of his developmental years.
August 29, 2005 changed what he and rest of the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas knew of their world when Hurricane Katrina blew through their homes, hearts and minds.
Fast Forward to 2014, as every new day continues to bring healing and plenty of good physical restoration, Katrina's damaging effects are still felt in the lives of so many people who have lost more than tangible comforts.
Nike came to New Orleans, February, 13, 2014, with their Nike Designer All-Star Weekend. Chavier sat down with Nike Designer, Eric Sandy, to come up with the idea of a unique Katrina series Jordan Brand/Nike series. This first series of its kind, done for the first time in the history of any sneaker company, will help to bring remembrance and continue the healing process for those who have felt so much in the wake of such a catastrophe.
Jordan Brand/Chavier collaboration will be dedicated to the estimated 1,833 lives lost and support Katrina events throughout the region.
