Discussions about the Air Jordan 1 High “Un-Supreme” and the Air Jordan 1 High “Red Elephant” have been going on for quite some time now, considering the resemblance and similarities between them. Jordanheads have likely had their eyes set on both sneakers ever since the beginning of this year, especially because one of them is being rumored to hit the shelves very soon. Although Jordan Brand has not announced or confirmed precisely when these two nearly identical sneakers will hit the shelves, its Jordan releases can be expected to take place before this month comes to an end. Continue reading The Almost Identical AJ1 High “Un-Supreme” & “Red Elephant” Are Yet To Release
It was back in November when an all-red exotic Air Jordan 1 featuring elephant print detailing was previewed. However, official photos of the sneaker also popped up too a few days before Christmas, which apparently means that the sneaker will be making its retail debut very soon. Even with 2015 coming to an end, Jordan Brand’s commemoration of their historic 30th Anniversary still continues. So, it is not surprising that the first installment from the iconic Air Jordan line is a brand new lifestyle treatment. Next year could mark the Jordan release 2016 of another colorway of this Air Jordan 1 variant. Continue reading A Black & Grey Lifestyle Air Jordan 1 Variant Arrives In January 2016
This year, one of the most enjoyable and significant moments that took the sneaker community by storm was without the collaboration between Jordan Brand and Supreme. A substantial amount of hype was surrounding Jordan release dates of the three Air Jordan 5 pairs that were a result of the collaboration. It should be obvious why, considering that these two brands are leading the way in their respective industries and both of them have proceeded to expand their reach beyond merely the basketball and skateboarding markets. However, the latest Air Jordan 1 High from Jordan Brand draws inspiration from another Supreme collaboration. Continue reading This Latest AJ1 High Is Inspired By Supreme’s SB Dunk Low From 2002
The three colorways of the Air Jordan 5 from Jordan Brand’s and Supreme’s collaboration hit the shelves on different. Hopefully, Jordanheads were able to grab a pair of their favorite Supreme x Air Jordan 5 iterations, whether from Nike’s online store or select retailers. One particular collector with the Twitter username @optimus517 even received his Supreme x Air Jordan 5 “Camo” not quite as he would have expected, i.e. it came without the original box, apparently a mistake by UPS. While their Jordan release date has already taken place, the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 sneakers have also encouraged avid customizers like SoleOnCanvas to modify them.
Jordanheads should actually consider themselves lucky if they were actually able to cop one of the three renditions that were included in the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collab. While apparently SoleOnCanvas was apparently was not one of them, he decided to come up with a unique version for himself that is nothing like sneakers thath it the shelves. This is not the first time a Supreme x Air Jordan 5 pair has been customized. Sean Wotherspoon who owns Round Two, a Richmond-based sneaker shop, applied red paint over the front half of his all-white Supreme x Air Jordan 5 pair back in October. While his “custom” job was rather basic, SoleOnCanvas has done something extraordinary.
From the looks of it, it appears as if SoleOnCanvas may have managed to grab all three of the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 iterations, but that might not be the case. Likely inspired by Nike’s “What The” series, he apparently used a regular Air Jordan 5 pair and borrowed motifs from all three of the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 renditions to add onto its upper. Thus, SoleOnCanvas’s custom appears more of a Frankenstein-like sneaker crafted by combining all three Supreme x Air Jordan 5 colorways into one. Even though their Jordan release 2015 took place a while back, the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 sneakers might still be available.
Around the beginning of the second week of November, the Air Jordan 1 High was previewed in photos revealing a brand new colorway that many Jordanheads are referring to as the “Unsupreme.” However, perhaps a better nickname for the sneaker would be “Black Cement,” considering the cement/elephant print detailing that covers the sneaker. It probably even reminds them of the Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low “Black Cement,” which sported a design. Now it seems that this upcoming Jordan release 2015 of the Air Jordan 1 High could mark the retail debut of another cement/elephant print-covered iteration, which makes two versions of this kind that are on their way. Continue reading The Cement/Elephant Print Makes An Appearance On Two Different Jordan 1 High Colorways
Stateside Jordanheads are likely glad that they did not have to head out to a retail store in order to cop a pair from the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 collaboration. The U.S. upcoming jordan releases 2015 of Supreme x Air Jordan 5 took place online and collectors within the nation should definitely be thankful about it. However, sneakerheads in London and Tokyo were not as fortunate since the Supreme x Air Jordan 5 was released in-store in the two cities. Of course, this meant that they had to step out in order to grab a pair and it should not be too hard to imagine what it may have been like.
