As a result of quality issues, the August Jordan release 2015 of the Air Jordan 1 KO “Bred” had been cancelled. Jordan Brand published a general, nonspecific statement regarding the reason the release was cancelled, which was cited in tweets posted by some of the leading sneaker retailers, such as Finish Line. However, months later the Air Jordan 1 KO “Bred” is once again in the headlines. A month ago the sneaker made its retail debut in Korea, not so long ago new editorial photos of the sneaker emerged, and now the has even arrived at retailers throughout Europe.

To date, the Air Jordan Future and the Air Jordan Eclipse have hit the shelves made up and sporting of all sorts of different, unimaginable materials and colorways, respectively. It has all been a result of Jordan Brand pursuit to capitalize on and expand their reach into the lifestyle footwear market. Even when it was time for Jordan Brand to introduce the very first signature model for Russell Westbrook, they unveiled an off-the-court silhouette in the form of the Westbrook 0. So for next year, Jordanheads can be expected one Jordan releases 2016 after another of the Jordan Horizon.

Jordanheads are probably well aware by now that the Jordan Spike 40 is the latest sneaker with Spike Lee’s name associated with it. However, what they may not know yet is the fact that Tinker Hatfield did not design the sneaker, but a sketch from Tinker’s vault did serve as the inspiration and source material for the Spike 40. Along with borrowing features from the Air Jordan 5 from the ’90s, the Spike 40 is basically a combination of elements from Tinker’s lost sketches. After hitting the shelves in several different iterations, an even more unique and vibrant colorway of the Jordan Spike 40 has been unveiled. Continue reading A Vibrant Jordan Spike 40 Colorway Has Arrived Before The End Of 2015
Some very memorable sneaker-related events have taken place this year, or rather this very month. Jordan Brand and Public School NYC collaborated once again to release two sneakers and a bunch of apparel. This year’s Holiday Jordan release of the Air Jordan 11 was inspired by the Bulls’ ’95-’96 season. Furthermore, the Air Jordan 8 “Chrome” is also making its comeback in a few days. However, now some enthusiastic Jordanheads are speculating that the Air Jordan Jumpman Team II might actually hit the shelves in 2015 instead of next year, and it might just be December’s best Jordan release. Continue reading Rumors Suggest That This Jordan Jumpman Team II Might Arrive In December 2015
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.
Jordanheads probably do not realize that the “Chrome” iteration is not an OG version of the Air Jordan 8. In fact, it is recognized as the first non-OG edition of the model. This colorway of the Air Jordan 8 was never worn by Michael Jordan during an actual game, considering that it made its retail debut back in 2003, long after MJ had retired from the sport. Yet, the model is undeniably iconic and when combined with this monochromatic color scheme, it became an instant hit. However, there is another reason behind its popularity, which makes the Jordan release of the returning Air Jordan 8 “Chrome” even more special. Continue reading What Let The Jordan 8 “Chrome” To Become Such A Popular Non-OG Iteration?
