This Air Jordan 1 High “Wings” Could End Up Being A Charity-Based Release

The Air Jordan 12 “Wings” from last year is regarded by many as one of the model’s best iterations to have arrived in 2016. The sneaker looked like an amalgamation of the Air Jordan 12 “The Master” and the Air Jordan 12 “Playoffs. While the Air Jordan 12 “Wings” did not have uppers that wore off to reveal underlying “Wings” graphics, the pattern was featured over the heel portions and underneath the soles. Furthermore, Jordan Brand had dropped the sneaker so that all proceeds would go to the Wings Foundation. This year, it turns out that the Air Jordan 1 High is receiving the “Wings” treatment.

This Air Jordan 2 Is Inspired By Michael Jordan’s PE From June 1987

Many sneakerheads probably may not know that the Air Jordan 2 was the model that served as the base for Michael Jordan’s first Player Exclusive sneaker. MJ wore this Air Jordan 2 PE back on September, 1986. It was back on January 18th, 1986 when the Dean E. Smith Center became the home court of the North Carolina Tar Heels and by September of the same year, it became dedicated. A Carolina Pro Alumni basketball game was hosted as a part of the dedication, during which Michael Jordan rocked his Air Jordan 2 PE. That same Air Jordan 2 will be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2017. Continue reading This Air Jordan 2 Is Inspired By Michael Jordan’s PE From June 1987

Jordan Brand Will Soon Be Dropping Three Different Pantone Blue-Themed Air Jordan Releases

Jordan Brand’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2017 seem to include a trio of sneakers that feature the “Pantone” theme. The first of them is the Air Jordan 6 “Pantone,” which was initially believed to be a GS-exclusive. However, it turns out that the sneaker will also be arriving in two other sizes as well, namely PS (Pre-School) and TD (Toddler). The uppers of this sneaker are made up of premium leather, with perforations on the side. The Carolina or Pantone Blue shade covers this sneaker’s uppers entirely, but since it is a two-tone iteration it is equipped with all-White, full-length soles.

This Saint Patrick’s Day-themed Air Jordan 1 may end up making its retail debut among the Jordan releases 2017

Over the years, March 17th of every year has become associated with Guinness beer, leprechaun’s costumes, misrepresentative stereotypes, parades and themed cocktails. For those who are wondering, it is the day on which the annual Irish celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day takes place. Saint Patrick’s Day annually kicks off throughout the world, with both old and young partygoers participating in them. On that day, sneakerheads also get to show off their Green- and Gold-colored sneakers inspired by shamrocks and leprechaun’s hidden pot of gold. It should not come as a surprise that Saint Patrick’s Day’s lineup of sneakers included several kicks dressed up in Green and White so people could display their Irish spirit. For instance, New Balance designed a classic, almost entirely kelly-Green-colored 574 Heritage Sport colorway. Nike dropped a Free RN that had upgraded engineered mesh uppers dressed up in Green and featuring an ombré effect. Even Native released an iteration of the slip-on Jefferson for children, which was dressed in a bold Candy-Apple hue. Noteworthy Gold-colored kicks included an all-Metallic Gold Salt Water sandal and a high-top, Mirror-Metallic Gold-colored Giuseppe Junior sneaker. There was one other Saint Patrick’s Day-themed sneaker that was spotted but never made it to retailers, and it was this premium-looking Air Jordan 1 rendition. The photo of the sneaker featured above was shared on Instagram by Frank Copper (@frankcooper), who is a Jordan Brand employee. This Air Jordan 1 iteration appears to have faux croc suede uppers that are completely dressed up in Green, including the midsoles. Metallic Gold is the only secondary hue that appears, covering the Nike “Swoosh” logos on the side and it also seems to be equipped with Gum Rubber soles. Of course, Saint Patrick’s Day has passed, and while sneakerheads may have gotten to drink plenty of alcohol and wear green, they never got to rock this sneaker. Perhaps it is just a sample, or maybe this Saint Patrick’s Day-themed Air Jordan 1 may end up making its retail debut among the Air Jordan releases 2017 that arrive later this year Continue reading This Saint Patrick’s Day-themed Air Jordan 1 may end up making its retail debut among the Jordan releases 2017
