More than just the Times Square Ball in New York City will be dropped on New Year’s Eve. Some very interesting and strange items will be dropped throughout the United States to celebrate and countdown the end of 2016. For instance, Hard Rock Cafe Memphis on Beale Street will be hosting their New year’s Eve Guitar Drop for the 9th time this year, which involves dropping a 10-foot D’Angelico guitar from hundred feet. Of course, Jordan Brand will also be doing some dropping of their own. They are going to drop the Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” on New Year’s Eve, so it will be 2016’s final Jordan release.
In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Just Born Quality Confections will be hosting the annual PEEPSFEST, where a PEEPS Chick will be dropped that weighs 200 pounds. For those who do not know, PEEPS are marshmallow candies that come in shapes like chicks and rabbits. To celebrate the coming of the new year, even a live possum will be dropped in North Carolina by the convenience store Clay’s Corner. Before the lowering of the possum at midnight, the store will also be hosting an evening of entertainment and music. Idaho is somewhat the state of potatoes, so a huge potato will be dropped at Boise, the the Idaho State Capitol.
The Air Jordan is one of Jordan Brand’s most popular retro models and is fitting to be the last Air Jordan sneaker that they will drop by the end of this year. The “Black Cat” nickname of this iteration should make it obvious that its premium micro-perforated leather uppers are almost entirely dressed up in ominous Black. However, it also features 3M reflective underlying accents and its midsoles also sport some plain White-colored detailing. Sneakerheads already known when this sneaker is scheduled to be available but they are probably wondering where they will be able to cop a pair.
The Air Jordan 6 “Black Cat” is set to make its retail debut on December 31st and will retail at a price of $190. The sneaker is already available at Stadium Goods, on eBay and to Nike+ users, while it will arrive on New Year’s Eve at END., Finishline, Kicks USA, Nikestore, and several other places.
