His Airness’ second signature sneaker is getting an overhaul this month as Jordan Brand is set to debut a “Deconstructed” rendition of the Air Jordan 2. Hot on the heels of Don C’s luxurious “Arctic Orange” release, the new drop once again comes in a monochromatic look — this time in “Mint Foam.” This time around, however, the design ditches the silhouette’s usual collar padding in favor of a less bulky look while the leather construction has been swapped out for suede.
Look for the Air Jordan 2 Deconstructed “Mint Foam” to hit the likes of ONENESS this upcoming Wednesday, May 24, for $160 USD.
Nike retailers will be stocked with the new Air Uptempo “Obsidian” later this summer. The sneaker boasts a dark blue body all the way from the pull tab to laces and all the way through the upper, complemented by a gum sole and white trim around the giant “AIR” letters along the side. The signature Nike Swooshes are also well represented on the shoe, making appearances on the heel, as well as along the side and bottom of the sole.
The Nike Air Uptempo “Obsidian” will be available on June 29, starting at $160 USD. While you’re waiting for those, check out some of the best Instagram pictures of the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempos.
After receiving a quintessential black and white rendition, the Nike Air Max 90 model makes another appearance in a “Dark Obsidian” colorway. This time, the retro shoe’s Premium iteration boasts a mixed material upper consisting of indigo denim, navy leather and multi-color print textile on the Swoosh, tongue tab and throat. Yellow stitching throughout gives the colorway a denim-like appearance, while a white midsole and gum outsole keep the shoe classic and comfortable. The Nike Air Max 90 Premium “Dark Obsidian” is available in-store and online at Titolo for around $180 USD.
Jordan Brand’s Air Jordan 11 Low model is primed to release in a new colorway option. Closely following a pair of designs aimed to commemorate two of MJ’s alma maters in the “Barons” black and white model and the UNC-inspired “University Blue” iteration, we now take a look at this GS exclusive. Hits of “Blue Moon” land all along the upper replacing the traditional mesh outlay, while a cracked leather “Midnight Navy” mudguard does away with the usual patent leather trim. Rounding out the basketball classic is the clean white midsole and the icy blue translucent outsole. Retailing for $130 USD, the Air Jordan 11 Low GS “Blue Moon” is set for a release date of May 27.
As we enjoy the warmer weather, design teams are already gearing up for the next cold season. With this in mind, adidas Originals has revealed a new winterised take on its popular NMD_XR1 silhouette. The new model sports an extended bootie collar, longer heel pull tab and rope-style lacing system, while maintaining the original’s upper mesh construction, cage overlay, EVA plugs and BOOST midsole. So far, the new NMD design has surfaced in two colorways, “Grey Two” and “Scarlet,” which are expected to drop sometime in October.
Stay tuned for official release dates and prices and, in case you missed it, check out the new NMD XR1 “Oreo.”
Long associated with the likes of Charles Barkley, as well as Michigan’s Fab Five, Nike‘s Air Force Max is making a comeback later this year with a brand new look. This fall, the old ’90s kicks are getting the “Wheat”-like “Flax” treatment. Like past “Flax” drops, the design is marked by a look reminiscent of work boots and comes with a predominately nubuck upper. Additional details include the likes of a contrasting white midsole and gum rubber outsole.
The Air Force Max “Flax” will hit NSW spots in the latter months of 2017.
The championship chase continues for Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors. Despite KD’s tenth signature shoe being revealed, that won’t stop the Swoosh from launching Elite editions of his ninth silhouette. Next up is the Nike KD 9 Elite “Hyper Orange.” The upcoming colorway is reminiscent of the Bay Area’s popular baseball squad thanks to its mix of black, hyper orange and grey throughout. Its full-length Zoom Air cushioning is placed between a white midsole and black outsole that supports a Flyknit-based upper. You’ll also find exposed Dynamic Flywire in hyper orange/black to lock your foot in.
The Nike KD 9 Elite “Hyper Orange” is currently available at select Nike Basketball retailers and nike.com for a price of $150 USD.
