Air Jordan


Kids have been blessed again by the Swoosh gods with this colourful Air Jordan 1. ‘Mulburry’ steals the show on this one, playing out across the upper to excellent effect, and easily complimenting the ‘Blue Lagoon’ laces. Add to that the black hits that pop on the jumpman logo and Swoosh, and you’ve got some happy young’uns. You can find these at Rock City Kicks now. No related posts.

Public School Teases Brand New Jordan Collaboration via Instagram

Following an already impressive line of past collaborations, New York-based Public School and Jordan both took to Instagram yesterday posting two fairly ambiguous photos showing Jordan's signature shoe tag rendered in a high quality suede with embossed Jumpman branding over one side and Public School typography on the other. With captions simply reading "Jordan x Public School" and "Group project. Jordan x Public School.” it will be interesting to learn how this potential release develops - could it be the duo's highly anticipated Air Jordan 12?

UPDATE: The Air Jordan 1.5 ‘Bred’ is dropping this weekend fam and we’ve got some tasty new images for you to take a squiz at. Are these shots enough to persuade you to overlook the Air Jordan 2 sole unit? Better decide fast – these will be gone in a flash! November 21st release. Come on fam, quit playing! You can chastise the Air Jordan 1.5 all you like, but you’re a fool if you willing to pass up these ‘Bred‘ coloured beauties all because of a little sole-switcheroo. These 1s might be repping an AJ2 sole but, as true heads know, the model is a true OG – worn on-court by His Airness as a wear test sample for his second signature shoe. Black and red up top, ‘Nike’ on the tongue … sleep all you like, we’ll be stocking pairs for days! The Air Jordan 1.5 ‘Bred’ drops November 21st at selected Jordan Brand stockists.

UPDATE: In-stores this weekend, fam. Who’s Mary Coppin? This year’s Air Jordan Doernbecher release is one that has had collectors conflicted since its reveal. Patent leather has certainly fallen out of favour with sneakerheads in recent years and is a far stretch from it’s peak-popularity in the mid 2000s. That said, you’ve gotta remember that this wasn’t a shoe designed to cater to the tastes of Jordanheads – this is one kid’s dream shoe! That kid is 11 -year-old John Charles. John’s one of the unlucky 0.0032% of the US population stuck living with Crohn’s disease and its eternal suckiness, so the opportunity to design a shoe for the 2015 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection was a chance for him to express the daily struggle that comes with the inflammatory disease to the remaining 99.9968% population. Stuck downing seven pills every morning (which John has got down to one big gulp!) to fight the condition, the pills have been immortalised on the shoe as a expression of this constant battle. ‘Crohn’s’ is printed all over the outsole as a way for John to ‘literally stomp out the disease with every step’, while the words “Courage’, ‘Strength’ and ‘Fight’ stand between them as a reminder to keep on trucking! The shoes are packed with loads more details of great personal meaning to the young battler, but we don’t want to give them all away. If you’re keen to open your heart to a bit of patent love then you better be ready to swoop like a hawk when these drop stateside November 21st at select Nike stockists and Nike.com (10am EST) – these will be gone in an instant! Both mens and GS sizes will be available, along with a matching Jordan cap and hoodie. - Originally published on November 14, 2015. No related posts.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter… or so we hear – we’re happily welcoming a rising thermometer down here in the Southern Hemisphere. For those you gearing up for a lovely three months of bitter cold snaps, torrential downpour and just about every sneaker-hating weather condition going round, you know the deal. It’s time to tuck away those summer jawns, bust out the beaters and pray for blue skies. But if you don’t feel like sacrificing your sneaker game just cause of a little bit of rain and snow, then it’s time to bulk your rotation with a pair of sneaker-boots. Nike have taken multi-talented sports star Bo Jackson‘s signature Air Trainer SC II and given it a boot conversion, kitting the shoe out with a range of winter-ready hardware, including a grippy rubber outsole with aggressive lugs for improved traction. This is not the first release of the tweaked model to hit stores, but this new colourway is bound to be an easy-sell with its ‘Black Cement‘ vibes – no Jordanhead in their right mine wants to mess up a pair of AJ3s! Available right now at select Nike Sportswear accounts including Nohble. No related posts.
