Official Images Of The Air Jordan 5 Low Fire Red

The Air Jordan 5 Low borrows a very familiar color scheme from its original high-top counterpart for this “Fire Red” edition. Exactly the same OG colorway of the standard Air Jordan 5 that you know, love, and saw on Michael Jordan’s feet back in 1990, the new low-top features a white leather upper with black and Fire Red accents throughout. In case you aren’t already familiar enough with the iconic colorway, here’s a look at the official images of the shoe that hits Jordan Brand retailers this Saturday, March 12th in full family sizing.

Get Up Close With The Upcoming Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag

Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 1 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 2 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 4 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 6 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 7 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 8 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 3 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 5 Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag 9

We’re only a couple months away from the release of this brand new colorway of the Air Jordan 10 that draws inspiration from the flag of Chicago.

We have already gotten a few different looks at this vibrant colorway of the Air Jordan 10 but today we get some new up-close images at the shoe which show that the material on the upper looks to be nylon instead of the traditional leather build that this silhouette uses. The only place where we see leather is on the mudguard with the inclusion of tumbled leather. Even the tongue and eyestay are composed of nylon.

Take a look at these new images above and let us know if you plan on picking up a pair come May 14th. Retail price will be $190. Also check in with our Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag launch page for additional images, videos and other updates regarding this release.

Author’s Take

The only reason I would pick up this pair of 10s is if I were from the city of Chicago or lived there because the inspiration/theme looks to be on point. But since I don?t these are a pass for me.

A Closer Look At The Air Jordan Kobe Pack

During the huge All-Star Weekend announcement of the Air Jordan Kobe auctions on eBay, Jordan Brand promised a “special announcement” at noon on Sunday, February 14th. Many presumed that the aforementioned announcement would be pertaining to a retail release of the Air Jordan Kobe Pack, but such an announcement never really came. Over the last couple of weeks, the white/purple/yellow Air Jordans have begun to appear on social media through certain celebrity channels, and today Michael Jordan’s son Marcus, who is poised to open doors to Trophy Room on late May, just unveiled some of the best photos yet of the Air Jordan Kobe Pack. It features model-specific dustbags, a double-sized box with two compartments for the shoes, and other markings that represent Kobe Bryant and, of course, Jordan Brand. A retail release hasn’t been confirmed yet, but if these were to drop, don’t be surprised if they become available near Kobe’s final game in mid-April.

WWEs Shane McMahon Gets Seeded Free Jordans From The Brand

The crossover between pro-wrestling entertainment and sneaker culture isn’t a small intersection. In fact, Shane McMahon, son of Vince McMahon, was known to do his signature trot and shimmy around the ring in Air Jordans, and for his surprising return to the ring last week, he whipped out the Chicago 1s in classic Shane-O-Mac fashion. Currently, the WWE minority owner is in Chicago for a taping of RAW, and he just revealed through Twitter that he gets hooked up with free Jordans directly from the brand. Our question is – what will he lace up during his monumental match-up against The Undertaker in Wrestlemania on April 3rd?

Two People In Minnesota Shot This Weekend Over Air Jordan Release

This past weekend we saw lots of Air Jordan releases which were highlighted by a white and pink women’s colorway of the Air Jordan 12 that for some reason many men were going crazy over and a brand new white and black colorway of the Air Jordan 2 inspired by an ad from the 80’s.

Just when we thought that all of the senseless sneaker violence was over since Jordan Brand has been making more than enough retros for everyone, another incident occurred this past weekend. Reported by CBS Minnesota two men were shot on Saturday morning when police received a phone call at around 10:00am of gun shots being fired off near a Foot Locker parking lot. Police marked more than a dozen casings on the ground following the shooting which resulted in two people being injured. Thankfully the two victims did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

CBS reports that the lineup at the Foot Locker was for either the Air Jordan 2 Wing It or the Air Jordan 12 GS Vivid Pink which caused chaos in different parts of the country.

Police do not currently have anyone in custody but have several witnesses they are interviewing to piece this together.

Author’s Take

Great idea by Warner Bros. and Jordan Brand to release apparel to accompany the shoes. If I do end up buying the shoes I might pick up a Tune Squad jersey or Space Jam hat. Bringing the 90’s back in style!

Air Jordan 2 Low Marquette PE

Marquette has been a Jordan Brand school for quite some time, but it’s rare to see the Big East school benefit from player exclusives in the same way that other Jumpman sponsored programs do. It looks like that’s all slated to change as the Golden Eagles head into the ‘Big Dance’ with their very own Air Jordan 2 Low PE. One of the rarer retros in the Jumpman archives, The AJ 2 Low returns with a smooth leather upper drenched in Midnight Navy while Varsity Maize and University Blue accents lend a helping hand. Marquette’s ‘MU’ lettering hits the tongue and icy outsole so there’s no doubting who this pair was made for. Check out more of this Jordan 2 Low exclusive below and we’ll keep you updated on more March Madness sneaker related news right here on Sneaker News.

Expect More Air Jordan 6 Retro Releases In 2016


You can expect more of the Air Jordan 6 in 2016. Today we get a preview of two upcoming colorways that stray as far as possible from OG territory, as unique color blockings and vibrant accents are your’s for the taking. The first pair utilizes a tonal Black and Grey leather and suede combination. The overall effect is reminiscent of the Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux”‘s base but accompanied by an icy blue outsole. Then there’s the outlier of a white leather upper featuring a semi-translucent Volt bottom. This vibrant aesthetic is something you’d find in a Space Jam related category for how bold the 90s era colors are, from the lime green to Bright Crimson speckling throughout. There’s no word yet in regards to the size run of each pair, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see these designated as GS exclusives. Which Jordan 6 colorway are you a fan of? Check out a full look below and we’ll keep you updated on the latest Jordan release dates right here on Sneaker News.

A New Air Jordan 6 GS GG Colorway Has Been Unveiled

Not only are the little footers set to receive this new colorway of the Air Jordan 6, they’re also set to get this other brand new iteration of the model. An image recently leaked of what is being called an Air Jordan 6 GS GG model. In other words, it’s an Air Jordan 6 for girls who wear grade school sizes.

The minute I saw this model it immediately reminded of the Air Jordan 5 Pro Stars. The shoe comes in a plain white upper contrasted by the bold hits made up of Volt and Fuchsia found on the sole, branding and tongue of the shoe. The rest of the shoe remains pretty subtle and the star of the shoe is definitely the sole. No release info has been provided but we will be sure to let you know as soon as that info is leaked.

Author’s Take

I’m okay with this being a GS exclusive. The neon colors and Jordans combination is not really something I’m into.

The classic Fire Red colorway of the Air Jordan 5 is now being utilized on this upcoming Air Jordan 5 Low release. With less than a week before the shoe’s release, today we take a look at the official images of the Air Jordan 5 Low Fire Red.

If you’re a purist and prefer Jordan retros in OG colorways, this Air Jordan 5 Low in the Fire Red makeup was made for you. The shoe comes in a white leather upper offset by the Fire Red hits placed on the midsole, lining, Jumpman branding on the tongue and lace lock. Black accents also make an appearance on the shoe as they can be seen on th tongue, netting on the side panels, shark teeth on the midsole as well as part of the midole. A translucent icy outsole and a white set of laced round out the main features of the shoe. Releasing March 12th for $175, is this one of the best colorways of the Air Jordan 5 Low.

Author’s Take

I would have preferred to see Jordan Brand release more Air Jordan 5 Lows in colorways we’re used to seeing on the midtop options. I think they would have sold better as well as  look better.

A Better Look At The Air Jordan 6 GS GG Cool Grey

Air Jordan 6 GS 1 Air Jordan 6 GS 2

Remember that black and grey Air Jordan 6 GS that we showed earlier this week? Today we get another look at the shoe and it looks even better than the first image.

Said to only come in GS (Grade School) sizing and made exclusively for girls, this is definitely and Air Jordan 6 colorway that many guys wish came in adult sizing. The shoe is constructed out of a grey nubuck construction accompanied by the black tumbled leather placed on the overlays and ankle collar/heel area of the shoe. White accents are seen on the branding as well as on the midsole of the shoe. The shoe is completed by the icy translucent outsole seen below. Although the shoe is fairly subtle, the colors used give it that classic look. Said to be dropping May 21st for $140, what little footers are looking to pick up a pair?

Author’s Take

I love the color blocking used on the shoe. Reminds me of the Olympic and Carmine versions. Really wish these released in men’s sizing.
