Sneakers

PlayStation AF1 _ 003.jpgEarlier today, NIKE posted an ‘Inside The Vault’ retrospective on one of their most coveted collaborations, the PlayStation Air Force 1. Within it, they briefly detailed the conceptual process and even teased about the future. It makes you think… can we see a retro release of the original full grain leather design? Either way, let’s take a look at MY story and how I acquired a pair of one of my favorite sneakers of all time…

With 2014 coming to an end, I already find myself reminiscing over the last year. The emotion highs and lows. Success and failure. What could have been and what’s to come. So much to think about. I’m going to think hard over the next few days as I’m actually on vacation (yay) and want to come up with some relevant data to present to the peeps in the street. Here’s what I’m thinking so far for my year in review!

20141124-air-jordan-11-columbia-1061It’s no secret that the Air Jordan XI “Columbias” are my favorite sneaker of all time. You can imagine just HOW excited I am for the Dec. 20th release of the Air Jordan XI “Legend Blue” ! The originals were released in Feb. of 1996 and they were later retro’d in 2001. The 2001 retro did not have the original blue tint to the sole, however the 2014 version will have the iced out blue sole (which is the single thing that has me going crazy) !

P.S. – Much love if you know that old Capcom game “Legendary Wings” lol.

Slam_Dunk_laydown_detailBack in August I posted about the upcoming Air Jordan VI that was inspired by the manga/anime ‘SLAM DUNK’ ! Just early today NIKE & Jordan Brand officially announced the JORDAN X SLAM DUNK collection… Yes. COLLECTION! You can see in the main image above that the collaboration project consists of more than just the Air Jordan VI that we saw previously. It also includes two unique shirt designs and the Jordan Super Fly 3, which have both been designed with the SLAM DUNK fan in mind. Click below for the full gallery and more information!

It’s a me! Mario on your sneakers! I’m just gonna leave this here. To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Converse One Star J sneaker model, Converse is teaming up with Nintendo to create two snazzy limited edition leather One Star J designs that feature Mario & Bowser from the original Super Mario Bros. Check out the awesome pics below! Slated to release this week in Japan only, best wishes trying to get your hands on these!

SLAM_DUNK_AJ6_001If you’ve been following sneaker news, you might have heard that a few months ago Jordan Brand was putting together something special for Slam Dunk fans! Takehiko Inoue’s classic ’90s basketball manga/anime was a cultural phenomenon for Japan. Much like what Eyeshield 21 did for American Football in Japan, Slam Dunk did the same for professional basketball. Basketball culture and everything that went along with it, was (and still is) in full swing all over Japan. Sneaker culture in particular made a big impression amongst fans of the show.
