These drop tomorrow and I was completely convinced that I was going to pass on these. Yeah. Pass. On the re-release of the shoes Jordan wore when he captured his 6th and final championship. After watching so much old Jordan footage it really was the perfect way to end....after putting so many other teams out like that in the same situation. After watching this commercial it's got me thinkin' though....2011 has been absolutely ridiculous for Retro's and 2012 is looking big already. Hey why you gotta do that Jordan?
Although the Knicks are down 3-0 to the Celtics we have an epic game 4 ahead of us despite whether Amare is sore and Billups is out (damn). But with that we have Jordan Brand's special packaged (supposedly 21 only made) Melo M7 Advance. Paying tribute to Melo returning home to NY (and playing in Brooklyn in a couple years) these were specially made and given out to a few special media outlets also pairs given to Melo's family and friends. Hit the jump for this weeks edition of Sneakers Corner.
D Wade got his own signature Jordan show finally! Unfortunately the Air Jordan 2011's he's been rockin' lately look better but do they FEEL better? The Fly Wade has an all Phylon midsole along with a combination of Zoom & Max Air....in regular words that means its 13 ounces and more comfortable than whatever your wearing now. They were unveiled recently in Miami where Jordan Brand held a tiny event and 4 upcoming colorways were displayed. Hit the jump for a few flicks along with release date info and some other nice flicks of dope kicks.
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 Pewter/Black Foamposite One's, Orion Blue VII's, Nike Air Max JR's, and ANOTHER new colorway of the Zoom Kobe VI.
