DJ, hardtop basketball player and Rock Steady crew member Bobbito Garcia knows his kicks. It 2006 the New York native penned the book “Where’d You Get Those?: New York City’s Sneaker Culture: 1960-1987” and he served as host of ESPN2’s “It’s the Shoes” segment.

So when we had “Kool Bob Love” in the office we had to have him help us settle an old school sneaker debate: Nike Air Force 1’s or Dunks?

“I’m old enough to say that I’m the first generation of AF-1 wearers,” he tells “The basketball community accepted that shoe years before the hip-hop community knew anything about it. I challenge any hip-hop head to show me a photo of them wearing AF-1’s in ’83…the Dunks came out two or three years later in ’85 or ’86 but they had a thin midsole. So as a performance shoe there was no comparison…but they looked fly.”

So which sneaker did he pick for ultimate props? Watch the clip to find out.
