Family Comes First on Zion Williamson's Air Jordan 34 "Noah" PE

četvrtak, 03.03.2022.

As Zion Williamson and his New Orleans Pelicans prepare to resume play, Jordan Brand has readied a new Air Jordan 34 “Noah” PE for Zion to take the court in. What makes the “Noah” special? It was “designed” by Zion’s beloved 7-year-old step brother Noah Anderson, and features special scribbles drawn by Noah himself during one of Zion’s meetings with the Jordan Brand design team.

Uppers are constructed of high-tech white mesh and synthetics, with each piece rimmed by thick black lines. Noah’s doodles are spread across the entirety of this top half, and appear in a veritable cornucopia of colors: orange on toeboxes and lateral quarters, yellow on medial quarters and around forefoot bumpers, green on collars, blue on eyestays, purple on tongues and throats and bright red on heels. These bright accents and bold black lines provide a cartoon-y look that calls to mind images of LeBron James‘s ultra-rare Nike LeBron 6 “Stewie Griffin” PE.

However, the most notable embellishment appears on the insoles thanks to a tear-jerkingly sweet “To Zion, Love Noah” spellout done up in Noah’s own handwriting. Branding is provided by a black Jumpman logo on the tongue and a black Nike Air hit on the heel. Unlike the upper, things are kept simple on the midsole with a white and black Eclipse Plate cushioning setup and an icy blue outsole.

Jordan Brand has used the Air Jordan 34 as a blank canvas for its team members’ expression over the course of the NBA season. The “Noah” follows up Zion’s “Bayou Boys” PE from February, and also joins the ranks of other grin-inducing makeups like Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum‘s “Taco Jay” PE.

Expect the Air Jordan 34 “Noah” to release on Nike SNKRS come July 30, priced at $195 USD.

Blake Griffin Takes the Court in a "McLovin"-Themed Air Jordan 35

On Wednesday night’s Brooklyn Nets’ home game win against the San Antonio Spurs, Blake Griffin stepped out in an exclusive “McLovin”-themed Air Jordan 35.

Designed back in 2019 during an annual team trip when Griffin was still playing for the Detroit Pistons, the idea was initially planned for the Air Jordan 34 but carried over to the new model.

The theme is based on one of Griffin’s favorite movies, Superbad. In one scene, Fogell, played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, creates a fake Hawaii driver’s license in order to finesse the liquor store.

Customizing the shoe like a fake ID, the Jordan team styled it in a white and blue colorway with the license on the tongue reading the usual information and slapping on the line “Chikka Chikka” on top of the toe, from when Fogell showed off the license. The cherry on top is the customized name section reading “McGriffin.”

Check out the “McLovin” inspired Air Jordan 35s on Superbad co-writer and fellow co-star, Seth Rogen’s tweet.

subota, 19.02.2022.

The 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend contributed to the rise in popularity of the Nike Air Jordan 1 Hi ‘85. Making its return to the sneaker scene, the beloved silhouette arrives in a “Georgetown” colorway.

The kicks are predominantly covered in “College Navy,” which is found on the leather overlays, ankle flaps, Swooshes and Nike Air branding on the tongues. The toe boxes, quarter panels and elevated collar arrive in a splash of “Summit White,” while the lacing system is dressed in cream. A defining element of the pair is the pre-yellowed tongues, which add a retro feel to its collegiate design. The crisp white midsoles and the signature ball-and-wings emblem on the medial side of the heels round off the pair.

Although details of the launch are not confirmed, fans can expect to cop the pair at SNKRS for $200 USD and other retailers in the next few months.

The Air Jordan 6 Low “Atmosphere” Is Releasing In Full Kids’ Sizing

Playful “Atmosphere” is set to launch on the Air Jordan 1 to create a bubble gum-inspired retro, but it’s also appeared on an Air Jordan 6 Low exclusive to kids.

Set to release in January, the upcoming sneakers are expected to launch in Grade School, Pre-School and Toddler sizes, with the smallest pair surely forgoing any visible Air Max unit at the heel. Base construction across all offerings, however, have been crafted to feature the titular pink tone, while synthetic leather overlays indulge in a contrasting white color. Traction zones on the outsole deliver the “Atmosphere” hue in a semi-translucent style, which differs from the fluorescent rose-colored detailing that animates the midsole, lace toggle, Jumpman logo on the tongue and accenting strip on the sportscar-inspired heel tab.

Enjoy official images of the G.S. pair here below, and expect the low-top Jordan 6 to hit on January 3rd.

Air Jordan 6 Low
Release Date: Feb 25th, 2022 (Friday)
Color: White/Infrared 23/Black/Atmosphere
Grade School: $125

An Air Jordan 7 “Citrus” Retro Expected On July 2nd

ponedjeljak, 07.02.2022.

Despite receiving a much more infrequent retro cycle than other silhouettes among Michael Jordan’s first 10 signature sneakers, the Air Jordan 7 has served as inspiration across other designs offered by NIKE, Inc. over the decades. As the model enters its 30th anniversary, however, it’s set to satisfy countless enthusiasts’ desire for a proper retro of some of its most iconic colorways, including 2006’s “Citrus” makeup.

Coupled with “Black” and “Varsity Red,” the aforementioned orange tone helped introduce non-Chicago-Bulls-inspired styles to #23’s seventh signature sneaker, which debuted in 1992. Pitch-dark colored nubuck set the stage for a mix of boldly-accented branding and midsole detailing, as well as the uncommon contrasting “Citrus” stitching found across all of the upper’s overlays. The neoprene-reminiscent mesh on the upcoming Air Jordan forgoes the multi-color and pattern tongues seen on colorways like the “Bordeaux” one, but branding on the spines and outsoles boast a series of geometric shapes covered in vibrant orange and red. Although Team Jumpman has been remastering handfuls of previously-seen offerings, it’s yet to be determined whether or not the “Citrus” release will follow a one-to-one build of its 16-year-old predecessor, or if it’ll fall short like last year’s Jordan 7 “Flint” retro, which featured different shades of the sneakers’ original colors.

Enjoy images of a pair from 2006 here below, as you wait for an official Nike SNKRS launch come the summer.

Air Jordan 7 "Citrus"
Release Date: Jul 2nd, 2022 (Saturday)
