The Air Jordan 6 “UNC”….

…from NiceKicks….

Air Jordan 6 "UNC"

Michael Jordan’s first championship shoe, the 1991-released Air Jordan 6, has an extremely busy month ahead. There are, of course, the two “Like Mike” styles in White/Orange and green suede due out in December – the latter of which is considered the greater of the duo in terms of hype. Yet for many others, it’s the Air Jordan 6 that lightly honors MJ’s time at Chapel Hill that stands as the must-have release of the holiday season.

The Air Jordan 6 “UNC,” or more properly titled Black/University Blue, is a throwback edition of the Air Jordan 6. It is to the “Infrared” what the “Like Mike” in White/Orange is to the “Carmine.” Lush noir construction is perfectly offset by sky blue accents while a partially translucent sole unit captivates below.

Take an official look at the “UNC” 6s below and let us know if you plan to grab this must-have drop on December 2 via Nike SNKRS….

Nike Air Max 1 Jewel “White/Red”…

…from Nicekicks

Nike Air Max 1 Jewel "White/Red"

The Nike Air Max 1 Jewel is an interesting shoe, much like new versions of the Air Force 1 of the same moniker. The Jewel Swoosh, although an elder design element of the 80s centric silhouette, is as modern-day as it gets. Due largely to the fact that these 90s style aesthetics where far ahead of their time, the Nike Air Max 1 Jewel retro is as timely as any release today.

Originally debuted back in 1996, this White/Red colorway looks to be the first Jewel enthused Air Max 1 due in stores this summer….

Nike Air Jordan 2 Decon “Bordeaux”

…from Nice Kicks….

Often overlooked yet pivotal in Jordan Brand’s global expansion, and the continued progression of high-end sneakers, the Air Jordan 2 looks to take its rightful place in the sun with a new modern iteration — the Air Jordan 2 Decon.

Debuted earlier today in “Mint Foam,” the slimmed silhouette is removed from excess padding and weighty leather. Instead, the deconstructed model features a lightly textured suede fabrication with traditional midsole tooling below…..

Nike Air Jordan 1 “Royal’s” are available….

,,,from Nice Kicks….

-> Air Jordan 1 “Royal” For Sale <-

The Air Jordan 1 retro returns in “Royal” colorway for the first time since 2013 and is highly anticipated since it is the first time since Jordan Brand launched the Remastered Retro program in 2015.  The Air Jordan 1 “Royal” 2017 release featured the softest leather ever on the colorway since its 1985 debut release including tumbled royal leather.

The historic significance of the Air Jordan 1 Royal runs deep to the heritage of the Air Jordan line. The Royals were the first colorway to release in the Jordan lineup that had no tie to any team that Michael Jordan played on at any level. Despite the Air Jordan 1 being a staple in the retro line for years, the “Royal” Air Jordan 1s have only returned a total of three times since 1985 in high top form – 2001, 2013, and today in 2017….

Nike Free Train Force Flyknit “Dangeruss”
Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are on another title hunt this season. And for better or worse, with exception of the Dallas Cowboys, their chances of getting through the NFC look pretty good.

Wilson plays a key role in their successes, and Nike celebrates his dangerous abilities with a new iteration of the Free Trainer Force Flyknit.

Cleverly dubbed the “Dangeruss”, the shoe highlights a Flyknit base overlayed in camouflage. What’s more, the shades resemble the Seahawks home colors atop a chunky speckled midsole….

Air Jordan 31’s …..

…from  Nick DePaula @ NiceKicks…

Debuted by Jimmy Butler at USA Basketball’s training camp in Las Vegas, the newest Air Jordan model features a knitted upper, translucent outsole, Flywire strands and sizable Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot. Yes, that’s a fading Nike Swoosh logo at the midfoot, hearkening back to the original Air Jordan 1’s logo placement.

You can expect to see the Air Jordan 31 be officially unveiled soon, and stay tuned for more updates from USAB’s training camp as the Team USA players prepare for this summer’s 2016 Olympic Games next month in Rio De Janeiro.

New Air Jordan 10 Coming…..

…from Nice Kicks…

Air Jordan 10 Black Fierce Purple

The Air Jordan 10 City Pack will begin to take shape as the year progresses. But is this new Air Jordan 10 a part of the famed gathering? Well, it’s not likely considering all signs point towards its influence spanning outside the states.

Executed in black and purple with patterning throughout, the “75” embroidery at the collar likely indicates Parisian influence. The city’s center is known as the Paris 75 and there’s also the fact the shoe is showing up on the Foot Locker Europe site and no others at this point.

The Jordan Release Date for this Air Jordan 10 is scheduled for April 9. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details as they emerge….

Nike Kyrie 2 “Green Glow”

…from Nice Kicks…..

Interesting enough, the Nike Kyrie 2 “All-Star” was uploaded by one retailer yesterday but quickly pulled, with all orders being subsequently canceled. Now, it’s likely to believe the shoe won’t see the light of day anytime soon. But the Nike Kyrie 2 “Green Glow” will, and in very short order.

A popular colorway of the Kyrie 1 that has transitioned annually to the Kyrie 2, this predominately black silhouette is perfectly contrast with Green Glow at the tongue, branding and midsole. Set to release on February 17, give the Nike Kyrie 2 “Green Glow” a look below courtesy of Sneaker Politics….

Earlier today we offered a look at the Nike Kyrie 1 “Opening Night” which drops overseas next weekend. Likely the last release of the former Duke Blue Devils first signature shoe, that drop essentially make way for the forthcoming Nike Kyrie 2.

Images of the shoe have already begin to pop up across the web, with another bubbling to the surface today. The shoe in question has been deemed the Nike Kyrie 2 “BHM”, which should find its way to retailers sometime in February 2016…..

A shoe that features many of the brand’s most sought after technologies all rolled into a shoe holding up its biggest star not named Michael Jordan, the Nike “What The” LeBron 12 is essentially a who’s who of past and present Nike grail releases and creations.
