This Upcoming Jordan Ultra.Fly Mimics The Air Jordan 11’s “Space Jam” Color Scheme

The Super.Fly signature model was introduced when Blake Griffin, the power forward of the Los Angeles Lakers, became a Jordan Brand-sponsored athlete. During the 2015–16 NBA season, Blake had rocked the Super.Fly 4 and near the end of last month, Jordan Brand had the latest installment in the series, the Super.Fly 5. Some sneakerheads are probably mistaken that the Jordan Ultra.Fly is also associated with Blake Griffin, but that is not the case. The Ultra.Fly arrived at retailers back in April and is inspired by Michael Jordan’s “Black Cat” nickname. Apparently, the Super.Fly will be the second Space Jam-themed to join 2016’s Air Jordan releases. Continue reading This Upcoming Jordan Ultra.Fly Mimics The Air Jordan 11’s “Space Jam” Color Scheme

This Air Jordan 9 Retro Is Also Among Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2016 Releases

According to e-commerce research, more than half of holiday shoppers sign up for newsletters, while less than half of them search for coupons or discounts on a retailer’s website. This is why retailers must ensure that their websites are easy to use on mobile devices since a majority of the online purchases during the holiday season are made via smartphones and tables. Of course, this is something that Jordan Brand does not have to worry about.  Continue reading This Air Jordan 9 Retro Is Also Among Jordan Brand’s Holiday 2016 Releases

The Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” Is Jordan Brand’s New Year’s Eve Release

Michael Jordan is known by many different nicknames but perhaps his most popular one has always been “Air Jordan,” the one that served as a source of inspiration for his signature sneaker and sneaker line.

No one really knows for sure where the term “Black Friday” originated from. Presently, it is the nickname widely used for the Friday after Thanksgiving Day when people all over the United States go on a shopping spree in order to take advantage of all the bargains, discounts and sales.

Unveiling The Air Jordan 31 “Banned” – Part Two: The Design & Performance Aspects

As far as the design of the recently unveiled Air Jordan 31 “Banned” is concerned, it is like a modernized version of the Air Jordan 1. Consequently, the uppers are a seamless blend between the traditional leather and the latest Flyweave technology, which makes them feel and look like they are knitted in certain portions. It is almost impossible to tell where one material transitions to the other. Even the Nike Swoosh has been blended into the side panels, which fades into a large Jumpman logo similar to that of the Air Jordan 29. This symbolizes the fact that the thirty-one-year-old Jordan Brand evolved from Nike. Continue reading Unveiling The Air Jordan 31 “Banned” – Part Two: The Design & Performance Aspects
