ON SCREEN: Just for Kicks

2005. Directed by Thibaut de Longeville & Lisa Leone. Runtime: 82 minutes.

This documentary celebrates sneaker phenomena and its history, as told by “sneakerhead” hip hop legends, including Grandmaster Caz, Reverend Run, and Missy Elliott. From the legendary Nike Air Force Ones, affectionately dubbed ‘Uptowns’ in New York City, to the genesis of Air Jordans, Just for Kicks chronicles the evolution of sneaker culture. Explore the roots of hip-hop’s influence on sneaker fashion, as pioneers Reverend Run, Jam Master Jay, and DMC had everyone wearing Adidas with their smash hit “My Adidas.”


DJ Klyph is a veteran of terrestrial radio in Portland Oregon, building a brand that has promoted the local music scene through FM broadcast [The Numbers FM & XRAY FM], podcasts [Klyph Notes] and live events [No Requests & Mic Check PDX].

As a selector, he leans heavily towards lyrical content and classic boom bap due in great part to his early years in the Northeastern corner of the US. After spending prominent years in the South, he relocated to the Northwest and has become a fixture in the local scene.

“The Rhythm” radio show on The Numberz FM allows Klyph to continue the mission of bringing great content to listeners, highlighting music you won’t hear anywhere else in the city. “Welcome to the Neighborhood” on XRAY FM provides a platform for artists from within the region and national artists as well. The “Klyph Notes” podcast brings long form interviews, diving into the stories behind the art. Klyph works to create platforms representing the underrepresented from the Northwest and worldwide.
