Air Jordan 4 “Taupe Haze”

Here are some more looks at the Air Jordan 4 “Taupe Haze” which are slated to release later this month on January 28th for $200! 

At first glance, the upcoming pair features a color palette much more understated than those that been revealed via authorized and illegitimate channels. The titular “Taupe Haze” works in-tandem with “Oil Grey” detailing to create an arrangement reminiscent of a mythical Friends & Family pair by Travis Scott. Hits of “Infrared 23” across the tongue and outsole deviate from the understated schemes prevalent in La Flame’s collaborative catalog. Yet, the Jordan 4‘s most note-worthy component has been the cracked construction throughout the forefoot, midfoot, and tongue. Given how many wear and tear-away propositions dropped last year in 2020, speculation has emerged that the imperfect paneling may reveal different hues underneath.

Enjoy detailing on-foot images of the forthcoming retro ahead, and expect pairs to arrive at Nike SNKRS at the end of the month. Continue reading “Air Jordan 4 “Taupe Haze””

Dior Reveals Their Air Jordan 1

The ever-growing crossover of luxury and sportswear is inching closer to its apex this month as Nike officially reveals a first look at the hotly anticipated DIOR x Air Jordan 1. The Italian-made shoes feature a white and grey upper with ‘Air Dior’ punched into the iconic Wings logo, while an all-over print in high-quality jacquard acts as the Swoosh logo of the silhouette. A translucent icy sole with a graphic beneath, subtle contrast stitching, and metallic chrome hangtags accompanying the rumored $2,000 sneaker, while nine eyelets confirm that the canvas in question is indeed that of a High. The choice of light grey is a nod to the French atelier’s history as the hue was a mainstay of the brand since its founding in 1947.

It’s no surprise that the shoe emerged today, given Dior’s first-ever US debut of a men’s seasonal line was scheduled ahead of Art Basel shenanigans in Miami. Nike confirms that the shoes will release in April 2020 at select Dior stores; an MSRP has not been revealed. See the official images below. Continue reading “Dior Reveals Their Air Jordan 1”

Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard 3.0”

There’s always discussion surrounding the best original Air Jordan 1 colorways, nowadays there’s an equal amount of talk regarding the best non-OG 1s. By in large, the very-first “Shattered Backboard” tends to land somewhere near the top of that list. As it should.

Jordan Brand, keen on the fact that the Shattered Backboard is a trending style in tumbled leather or satin, looks to have plans to release a third colorway of the coveted style in 2019.

This third pair is reported to remove the white balancer and simply feature a black and orange upper.

Those same reports indicate the tentatively titled Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard 3.0” will release during the fall/winter 2019 season.

Its been reported that the Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard 3.0” will release this October. The drop is tentatively scheduled for October 26, 2019. Continue reading “Air Jordan 1 “Shattered Backboard 3.0””

Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It”

Colored in a wide array of shades that coincide with the timeframe in which the style’s moniker was created, this ’90s inspired theme is punctuated with “Dream It, Do It” on the tongue.

Interestingly, and very pointed, is the vintage Coogi sweater-esque theme of the shoe and its March 9th release date. As any good Hip-Hop fan would know, it’s the date the Notorious B.I.G. passed. Could there be a connection? Possibly. But if nothing else, the coincidence is worthy of a second thought.

Take a look at the Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It” below. Continue reading “Air Jordan 9 “Dream It, Do It””

Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown”

Over the last few years, Jordan Brand’s celebrated holiday offering has largely been anchored by adoring Air Jordan 11 releases. The latter months of 2018 likely won’t stray from that tradition. However, one of the most anticipated Air Jordan 11s of this year won’t release in November or December.

Taking on “Blackout” and “Prom Night” themes before being officially referenced at the Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” edition, the noir centric style takes its inspiration from the shoe’s ability to play both on court and in formal settings.

Often times brand aficionados have laced up Air Jordan 11s at prom and other ‘tux and tennis’ functions. Thus, the Air Jordan 11 over time has become something of a dressy sneaker when given the opportunity. By all measures a premium iteration of the Air Jordan 11, the upper is enhanced with suede materials alongside a metal Jumpman logo and laces inspired by graduation cords.

The Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown” will release on May 26th and retail or $220. Continue reading “Air Jordan 11 “Cap and Gown””
