This week we got a few retro releases including the Foamposite One’s, Jordan VII’s and also some new kicks and a new colorway of the Air Jordan 2011 which you see here. NCAA March Madness has begun and unless you live under a rock you know that MJ went to UNC and of course the entire basketball program at the University of North Carolina is sponsored by Jordan Brand. This colorway accents the ‘University Blue’ we’ve come to know & love.
Hit the jump for the Metallic Pewter/Black Foamposite One’s, Orion Blue VII’s, Nike Air Max JR’s, and ANOTHER new colorway of the Zoom Kobe VI.
The Nike Foamposite One’s were released yesterday at Nike retailers in the US. The 1 Cent logo on the heel should remind you that this is a retro release and definitely a hot one. FootLocker.com shows they’re sold out already so you’ll have to hit up Ebay where you’re lookin at about $230+ for a pair.
The ‘Orion Blue Jordan VII’s drop next Saturday (26th) at your local Foot Locker. Definitely a nice retro release featuring a really nice blue/red/white color which will definitely look fly this summer. Price tag on these are $189.99.
The Nike Air Max JR drops next month. I don’t have too much info on these yet but they are confirmed to drop in the US but I’m not sure about Canada. These shoes are a hybrid of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 featuring a new 360 air max unit and Nike’s new Torch technology in the upper. The Torch technology allows for better stability in the shoe itself and also better breathing for the shoe as no leathers or canvas type materials are uses. I really want to get my hands on a pair of these as I’ve wanted a pair of hightop cross trainers for a long time.
A new ‘Playoff Pack’ (POP) Zoom Kobe VI has been slated for an April release. These 2 colorways play off of each other as one shows White/Black/Yellow and the other Black/Yellow/White.
