Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ 2012   Benji Wilson Pack | By ILoveDust

The recent spurt in gun related violence across the U.S. have many revisiting the senseless loss of lives over the years. One such was Benjamin “Benji” Wilson, Jr. Simply known as Benji to his friends and family, Wilson played for http://simeonca.org” target=”_blank”>Simeon Vocational High School in Chicago and led them to its first http://ihsa.org” target=”_blank”>Illinois State Championship in 1984 against http://eths.k12.il.us” target=”_blank”>Evanston Township High School. A promising basketball star in the making, but that journey was cut short when he was shot to death just at the start of his Senior year. As a tribute, http://nike.com” target=”_blank”>Nike and the London-base creative agency http://ilovedust.com” target=”_blank”>ILoveDust created the Benji Wilson Pack in honoring the memories of Wilson. Featuring a pair of http://nikebasketball.com” target=”_blank”>Nike Lunar Hyperdunk 2012 in Game Royal/University Gold-Obsidian, a colorway closely related to that of Simeon Vocational High School. Other parts include a plaque with Wilson’s jersey number, 25, and a specially made shoe tag. Finally, all are packaged with a custom wooden case, created from reclaimed gymnasium flooring. To truly complete design, ILoveDust laser-etched variation of markings, from Illinois State Championship to Simeon’s own, and last but not least, one created on behalf of Wilson, on all sides of the case.

Benji I don't know you but I know your story it's really unfortunet that you have past but like your mother said its not how long you live but how well you do. Your very very strong mother is right and you Benji lived your life to the fullest, and I strive to be like you Benji and I wish that I will become like you not the number 1 player in the country in basketball but I want to live my life to my best potential. I know you didn't get to but if you did people would be talking about you not Michael Jordan, YOU! R.I.P Benji!
