Air Jordan 9 “Space Jam”

air-1-19

Although the original colorway of the Air Jordan 9 has released numerous times since its debut back in 1993, it’s still a critical piece of Air Jordan history all the same. The shoe is MJ’s first retirement silhouette, and one he actually never wore in a game.

But the Air Jordan 9 holds much significant sartorial and cinematic value, as it’s one of the most avant-garde Jordans there is and appeared in Space Jam – the film starring Jordan that first appeared in theaters 20 years ago.

With that said, the Air Jordan 9 “Space Jam” will be releasing this Saturday, December 3rd. Take a closer look below. Read more

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Top Three”

air-1-23

For the past few years now, one of the most popular new themes in sneakers has been the “What The” makeup. Nike, through several heritage releases and new styles alike, have grown this clever execution into a hype-worthy release each time out. Now – although not technically labeled as such – the Air Jordan 1 gets its turn.

Featuring color blocking from the “Royal,” “Chicago” and Black/Red colorways of the classic 1985 style, the Air Jordan 1 “Top Three” arrives in stores tomorrow following much anticipation. Although met with lukewarm reception from purists who often feel such releases dilute the essence of the Air Jordan 1, it’s actually styles like this that add nuance to the shoes continued legacy.

Air Jordan 11 “Wool”

Confusion has surrounded the Air Jordan 11 “Suede” since the shoe first previewed earlier this year until the shoe released in limited numbers this past weekend at Kith and Concepts NYC. But it was the thought that the model was wool to begin with that started the confusion in the first place.

Now, the Air Jordan 11 that actually seems to be constructed in wool has surfaced. The charcoal colored upper is offset by a darker heel counter, while a translucent outer is seen below. The “23” heel logo is also visibly absent.

No official Jordan Release Date yet for the Air Jordan 11 “Wool”. Read more

Nike Air More Uptempo “Black Reflective”

While original colorways of the Nike Air More Uptempo helped propel this year in sneakers, the famed 90’s style still has a few tricks up its sleeve heading into 2017.

This blackout edition of the shoe with reflective detailing is certainly a modern interpretation of the shoe Scottie Pippen famously donned decades ago. No release details for this Nike Air More Uptempo “Black Reflective” are available at this time but stay tuned for more info. Read more

Mirroring the shoes that MJ wore during the 1995 NBA Playoffs, the upper sees black mesh overlays with a higher-cut patent leather design. Additionally, the number “45” is incorporated on the heel, while the insoles see classic Nike Air branding. Take a look at the photos below and mark your calendars for the December 10th drop date.

Kobe Bryant’s legacy is cemented in stone. He’ll go down as undeniably the greatest shooting guard of all time, only trailing Michael Jordan. The two share many similarities, with those forces combining here through the Air Jordan 9 “Kobe Bryant”.

Draped in Lakers home shades while resembling a Kobe sample that gained fame years ago, the Air Jordan 9 “Kobe Bryant” highlights a Jordan Brand theme that bridges rare gems with general consumption – one of the most beloved fan moves the brand has made in years.

And although the wait for the Air Jordan “Kobe” Pack soldiers on, the “Kobe” 9s will be here in a matter of days, set to release on November 19th. Read more
