Amidst all the Air Jordan releases 2018, it is somewhat rare to see a LeBron 15 pair drawing inspiration from Jordan Brand’s signature line. Earlier this month, Nike launched the #LeBronWatch campaign. As a part of it, LeBron James appeared on the court laced up in special LeBron 15 colorways drawing inspiration from Nike’s illustrious history. These included colorways inspired by the Air Diamond Turf Air Max 95 “Neon,” Air Mowabb, Ken Griffey Jr., and even a Nike shoe box from 1972. Unexpectedly though, LeBron James was recently spotted rocking a LeBron 15 iteration that features the color scheme and detailing of a highly coveted Air Jordan 5 colorway.
Jordan Brand‘s latest signature sneaker model finally made its retail debut, joining the Air Jordan releases 2018 last month. This model was the highly-anticipated Air Jordan 33, which was officially introduced on September 20th, 2018. The Air Jordan 33 initially arrived exclusively in China in the “Tech Pack” colorway. It eventually became available worldwide on October 18th, 2018 in the “Future Flight” colorway, which retailed at a price of $175. The colorway was named after its “Future of Flight” tagline. Following its release, you have already seen a couple of Air Jordan 33 PEs. The next Air Jordan 33 colorway to hit the shelves will be the “Visible Utility.”
It seems one of next month’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018 will include a sneaker colorway that is receiving the retro treatment for the very first time since its debut back in 1995. The colorway being referred to is the Air Jordan 10 “Orlando” from the City Series Pack. The year before the pack’s unveiling, i.e. 1994, Michael Jordan shocked everyone when he announced his retirement in order to pursue a professional baseball career. Michael Jordan was absent when the Air Jordan 10 was introduced. Hence, Jordan Brand whipped up the City Series so that NBA’s most prominent rising stars could rock the model on the court.
The opening night of the 2018–19 NCAA Division I men’s basketball season took place on November 6th, 2018. In the past, there have been complaints that the college basketball’s opening night has not been adequately celebrated, but that is no longer the case. The recent opening night was very eventful, with the highlight being the two top-10 matchups of the 2018 Champions Classic. The Duke Blue Devils dominated opening night and defeated the Kentucky Wildcats with a score of 118-84. However, the Georgetown Hoyas, Marquette Golden Eagles, Michigan Wolverines, and the North Carolina Tar Heels also stood out for being laced up in Air Jordan 33 PEs.
You may not know this but Michael Jordan initially was not interested in signing with Nike and that is how the Air Jordan 1, and consequently the entire Air Jordan line, came to be. It may shock and surprise you that back when he was still a member of the North Carolina Tar Heels, Michael Jordan preferred playing in Chuck Taylor All-Stars by Converse. At the beginning of his NBA career, he was quite eager to sign with Converse, but as you know that never happened. It has been 33 years since its debut and NIKE SNEAKERS recently hosted the “Week Of Ones” in celebration of this iconic model.
Back in 2016, Jordan Brand unveiled the Air Jordan 1 Satin as a limited edition variation of the model, which made its retail debut on October 18th that year at a price of $175. This was the first time that a majority of the Air Jordan 1’s uppers were made up of satin material instead of the traditional leather. At the time of its debut, the Air Jordan 1 Satin was dressed up in the “Banned” or “Bred” color scheme. For the very first time, the Air Jordan 5 is also receiving the Satin treatment and it will also be dressed up in a “Bred” color scheme.
