Marcus Jordan Shares A Photo Of Himself Wearing The Jordan 14 “Oxidized Green”

The fourteenth Air Jordan model made its very first, original retail debut back in 1998-1999. Jordan Brand had designed and released the Air Jordan 14 right after Michael Jordan’s second retirement from professional basketball. The Jumpman had dropped a total of eight colorways of the silhouette, three of which were in low-top form. To date, merely three of the Air Jordan 14’s OG colorways have received the retro treatment, and the “Indiglo” and “Oxidized Green” ones were not among them. Fortunately for sneakerheads hoping to see them return, it was revealed back in December last year that they would be one of Fall 2016’s Air Jordan releases.

Drake Received This Air Jordan 8 PE After Receiving The Key To Toronto

The lyrics of Drake’s explicit rap song “Summer Sixteen” includes the line “I might get a key to the city and give it to Wayne.” On February 12th of this year, this particular line from his song actually ended up becoming a reality when John Tory, the mayor of Toronto, gave him the key to the city for being the “world’s most famous Torontonian.” Other illustrious celebrities and personalities who also hold the key include the Celine Dion, the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela.

The Jordan 9 Is Returning In Its First OG “White Black–True Red” Colorway

Michael Jordan never actually got to laced up in and rock the Air Jordan 9 on the court for an entire NBA season. The reason behind this is that Michael Jordan had already announced his retirement from the Chicago Bulls on October 6th, 1993. It was only later in his career when he had returned back to the world of professional basketball and was playing for the Washington Wizards that he ended up wearing the Air Jordan 9 on the hardwood, but in its “Cool Grey” colorway. However, it seems the very first, original Air Jordan 9 colorway might be among 2016’s Air Jordan releases. Continue reading The Jordan 9 Is Returning In Its First OG “White Black–True Red” Colorway

The Jordan 5 OG “Black-Metallic Silver” Joins The Remaster Retro Initiative In July

Last year back in December, Jordan Brand made an announcement about the second round of their Retro Remaster initiative. Jordan Brand claimed that retro Air Jordan sneakers tend to remind wearers of a particular game or moment from Michael Jordan’s illustrious career.

The main premise of their next Retro Remaster initiative was to bring back the heel Nike Air logo on retro Air Jordan sneakers. The latest sneaker from this initiative is among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2016 and it is the Air Jordan 5 OG ’90 “Black-Metallic Silver.” Continue reading The Jordan 5 OG “Black-Metallic Silver” Joins The Remaster Retro Initiative In July

Eminem & StockX Team Up To Give Away The Carhartt Air Jordan 4

The sneaker reselling business is booming, or so it seems, especially for StockX. It was back in mid-2015 when Dan Gilbert, the majority owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Josh Luber, a collector of rare limited or rare sneakers, had teamed up to establish StockX. The website, which can be described as “a stock market for sneakers,” provides a venue for buying and selling authentic sneakers. Considering that StockX is based in Detroit, which happens to be Eminem’s hometown, it is not surprising that the hip-hop legend and rap god is investing in the company alongside Paul Rosenberg, his manager.
