Jordan Flight 9 “Olympic”

22 Aug


The Jordan Flight 9 “Olympic” borrows the same inspiration as seen on the recent Rare Air and 2008 “Beijing” Air Jordan 6 using a white leather upper with red, green, yellow, blue, and black accents on the midsole to represent the Olympic Rings. A midsole reminiscent of the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 6 is placed below an upper with mesh reminiscent of the Air Jordan 4.

Jordan Sky High Canvas

23 Jul

The Canvas Jordan was once an extremely rare collectors item, the Sky High Canvas will release later this fall.

The Jordan Canvas is a strict casual, everyday shoe (something you wouldn’t want to wear on the court). White and black colorways will release in September, both of which feature Cement Grey and Varsity Red accents. How clean do these look, like realllly?? They would be my “go-to” pair of sneakers for almost all occasions. I like how the white swoosh pops on the black pair but the white ones are just so clean… I’m down to get one in each colorway…

Whether you knew about this shoe or are just seeing it for the first time, do you plan to drop a very fair $85 for a pair come September?

Air Jordan Alpha 1 “W3lCome Home”

17 Jul

The Jordan brand unleashed the Air Jordan 2010 “W3LCOME HOME” at the beginning of May, a sneaker that pays tribute to Dwyane Wade and his hometown of Chicago. Even though he’s staying in Miami this off-season, these Jordans continue to use Dwyane Wade and his hometown for the themed sneakers. This Air Jordan Alpha 1 “W3LCOME HOME” features a very familiar colorway seen on the Air Jordan 2010. The toe box is a perforated leather while the rest of the sneaker (side panel, heel) is done up in red perforated leather. The “W3LCOME HOME” hints are only seen on the insole where the word, ‘W3LCOME’ is seen on the left insole and the word, ‘HOME’ seen on the right. The Air Jordan Alpha 1 “W3LCOME HOME” is now available at  retailers overseas and  should surface stateside soon.

Air Jordan 6 Infrared Pack- Sneakerpicks

29 Jun

I finally came around to blog about sneakers.

Originally, sneakers were going to be my main topic/subject of interest for this blog space.

My first post wasn’t about sneakers though, it was about a shirt I liked. I wasn’t sure whether i could dedicate an entire site to sneakers. I didn’t own many pairs myself, so i was hesitant to blog about something that I had limited knowledge in.  As the days progressed I lost that focus that was my main drive to begin blogging in the first place.

Now, I decided to start and dedicate a segment called SneakerPicks for the site. It’s an integrated portion that will feature my favourite shoe of the week. The shoe will most likely be a newly released pair within the recent months.

This week, I chose the Air Jordan Infrared pack. In my opinion, this is a very solid pack which features one of the best Jordans that has ever come out, the VIs. I love these shoes because they’re infrared, and almost everyone loves infrared. I own  Infrared Air Max 90s, and I have worn them to death. These would be a nice replacement.

So the shoes come in a double decker box, the same concept as the “Toro Bravo” Jordan V pack (which I like more). So the boxes slide out one by one to reveal each pair enclosed in antistatic bags to prevent discolouration in the icy soles.

The pack comes with a white leather and black leather pair of Jordan VI’s. Both pairs look sick, together in a pack, they are ridiculous. Retro shoes have been very popular because they give people a second chance at copping a pair. The bad thing is that the re-releases are usually expensive, making most people who buy the shoes more prone to locking them up their boxes (I’m guilty of that).  However, this is an entirely different subject altogether.  What I meant to say was that these Jordan’s look great on feet, so wear them proudly on dry sunny days and prepare for a whirlwind of neck-breaking.
