Cop The Jordan 11 Low “Cherry” & “Navy/Gum” Before Everyone Else

Ever since 2016 kicked off, retro Air Jordan releases have been hitting the shelves almost week after week. Many Air Jordan colorways that have already been dropped a couple of times over the past decade or so have either already arrived at retailers or are scheduled to be available sometime this year. These sneakers include the Air Jordan 1 “Bred,” the Air Jordan 5 “Black/Metallic” and the Air Jordan 7 “Olympic.” Generally, the Air Jordan 11 is one particular model that does not make frequent appearances on retail shelves in a year, but two new colorways of its low-top form will be available soon.

The Air Jordan 6 GS “Cool Grey” Resembles Several Sneakers From The Past

Apparently, the Air Jordan 6 is somewhat becoming a children- and women-centric model, or at least so it seems. Just last month when April came to an end, the last Air Jordan release date of the month were two GS-exclusive colorways of the Air Jordan 6, namely the “Bright Mango” and the “Green Glow.” By now, many kids and ladies probably own a pair of both or either of these two sneakers, but now they might decide to add another pair to their collection. It turns out that Jordan Brand has dropped the latest Air Jordan 6 GS colorway, the “Cool Grey” one. Continue reading The Air Jordan 6 GS “Cool Grey” Resembles Several Sneakers From The Past

An Entire Collection Of 1×1 Air Jordan Sneakers Was Showcased At Trophy Room

Ever since earlier this year, there has been tremendous hype surrounding the opening of Marcus Jordan’s very own Jordan Brand-only sneaker store, “Trophy Room.” Early on the morning of May 21, thousands of sneakerheads lined up inside the Disney Springs shopping complex to receive the wristband that would enable them to enter the store and chop any of the exclusive and limited Air Jordan sneakers that were available there. Before the doors of the store were opened for the public at 5:23 AM, an exclusively Friends & Family event took place, which includes members of the Jordan family, Marcus’s staff and a number of invitees.

This Air Jordan 12 GS “University Blue” Was Once A Carmelo Anthony PE

The Air Jordan 12 GS “University Blue” has finally joined this month’s Air Jordan releases 2016 by making its retail debut and the sneaker has quite the back story behind it. Children and women should definitely rejoice, considering that Jordan Brand is dropping an Air Jordan 12 exclusively in their sizes. It is probably very disappointing for old-school male Jordanheads since many of them have been waiting for this sneaker to receive the retro treatment once again so they could lace up in it. This is because Carmelo Anthony once rocked a variation of this iteration on the court during the 2003–04 NBA season.

Another AJ1 Low “No Swoosh” Emerges As First Three Colorways Arrive At Retailers

It was back in 1971 when Carolyn Davidson, a graphic design student from Portland State University, had created the Swoosh logo for Phil Knight, the founder of Nike. The Nike logo apparently symbolizes motion and speed. “Swoosh” apparently also refers to the sound possibly heard when an NBA athlete like Michael Jordan moves at high speed across the basketball court and. Perhaps that is why the Swoosh was present on Nike’s first Jordan Brand sneaker, only to be absent from the Air Jordan 2 onwards. Now it seems even that even these new Air Jordan 1 iterations will not feature the silhouette’s trademark side Swooshes.

A majority of those sneakers have already been unveiled and have made their retail debut ever since this collection was first unveiled, with the exception of just one.
