Nikes is a critique of the trappings of materialistic hedonism, with frequent reference to Nike shoes, shiny gold/glitter, and fantasies of pleasure. The track features two competing voices, adding a sense of tension and conflict to the otherwise dreamy music. The lyrics include cultural references to the late A Yams (who is featured in the video along with A Rocky), Pimp C, and Trayvon Martin. The song is the lead single from Frank Ocean’s highly anticipated third album, Blonde, originally titled Boys Don’t Cry. Read more on Last.fm.
