In a time of social distancing, the two came together through Zoom, a video conferencing app. The photographer managed to shoot Lorenzo's son, Jerry Lorenzo Manuel III, wearing the sneakers and doing an assortment of poses and activities including playing backyard basketball, video games, baseball and skating. Part of Nike's #PlayForTheWorld campaign, the message encourages everyone to stay at home and help flatten the curve while still staying active and living a healthy lifestyle. Selects were captured in black and white as well as color. We can expect the sneakers to release soon.
