for the love of nike

the gateway to crazy

Isn’t that nuts?! They built this sucker in the mid 60s and plopped it right on the edge of the Mississipi River. Back then it cost $13 million to construct. That’s equivalent to $180 million these days.

When I finally saw the arch in person, the first thing I thought of was someone trying to climb it or fly through the darn thing. Which has actually happened. Some maniac even tried to fly a hot air ballon under it and ended up hitting the structure. Another guy climbed the arch with suction cups and parachuted off the top.

Instead of doing some daring feat to take in this architectural masterpiece, I just laid back on the ground and threw my feet up in the air, as only a true sneakerhead would do.
