Sneak Peak Of The Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar

Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 1 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 2

Any Neymar fans out there? If you said yes, I highly suggest you continue reading. We recently came across a leaked image showing a sneaker that is said to be named the Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar.

Paying homage to the 24-year old soccer sensation, Jordan Brand decided to design an Air Jordan 5 Low after one of the best in the game. This Air Jordan 5 Low manages to differentiate itself from all the other versions we’ve seen this year since its upper comes covered in a full 3M Cement print motif. That means when flash hits it, the entire shoe will light up! Joining the 3M upper are the black and crimson hits placed throughout the shoe. The image also shows personalized Neymar branding as a name tag appears inside the tongue and his jersey number is placed on one of the shoes ankle where the 23 is usually found. What are your thoughts? Is this the best Air Jordan 5 Low we’ve seen all year? Stay tuned to get more information regarding this potential release.

Author’s Take

The 3M Cement upper is definitely the star of the shoe. Although I’m not a soccer fan, I do know who Neymar is so it’s cool to see a player from another sport gets recognized by Jordan Brand. The personalized hits are also really cool. Can’t wait to see the rest of the shoe.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Metallic Navy Is Making A Comeback!

AIR JORDAN 1 RETRO HIGH OG 1 AIR JORDAN 1 RETRO HIGH OG 2

 

Jordan Brand will continue to release Air Jordan 1 High models in OG fashion. Last year saw the return of classics such as the Air Jordan 1 High Chicago and UNC. We also got a gem in the form of the Air Jordan 1 High Shattered Backboard. Jordan Brand will continue the trend by also giving the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Metallic Navy the retro treatment.

Considered to be an OG colorway being that it released in 1985, many people will be happy to see this shoe get the retro treatment. The color blocking of the shoe is fairly simple as the shoe comes in an all-white upper contrasted by the Metallic Navy hits palced on the OG Nike branding, collar, lining, outsole and Nike Swoosh. A set of white laces and a white midsole complete the minimalist look. Said to be dropping on June 4th for $160, how many of you see this release as a “must-cop”.

I’m a big fan of navy blue on sneakers. I’m definitely looking forward to picking up this colorway once it drop in a couple of months.

First Look At Neymars Air Jordan 5 Low

Global soccer star Neymar just so happens to be a big fan of Michael Jordan. In fact, his fandom is being reciprocated by the brand by way of an Air Jordan 5 Low designed by Neymar himself. You might’ve heard the rumors earlier this year, but today we get a first look at the Neymar x Air Jordan 5 Low; it features a full speckled upper with a black midsole and hits of bright crimson on the inner lining, but what makes these truly specific to the FC Barcelona star is that his number 10 is stitched on the left shoe in place of MJ’s 23, and a label of his name is featured on the inner side of the tongue. Grab a first look at the details here and stay tuned for release info.

Jordan Brand To Release The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Metallic Navy In June

Let’s see: White/Cement 4s with Nike Air already released, Space Jams and True Blues are coming back, the Air Jordan 17 is making a return, and now the Metallic Navy AJ1s? 2016 is all about reviving the original Air Jordan colorways, and there’s reason to think that the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Metallic Navy” might be the best of the year. There are collectors out there who only chase after 85 originals and they’ll tell you firsthand that tracking down every colorway in history is nearly impossible because there are as many unreleased samples as there are release versions. June 4th is the tentative date for these, so get a clear look here and let us know if these are a must-have for you. Can’t wait? The low-top version drops later this month.

The Saint Laurent SL/10 Is Once Again Inspired By The Air Jordan 1

SAINT LAURENTS 1 SAINT LAURENTS 2 SAINT LAURENTS 3 SAINT LAURENTS 4 SAINT LAURENTS 5 SAINT LAURENTS 6 SAINT LAURENTS 7 SAINT LAURENTS 8 SAINT LAURENTS 9

This isn’t the first time that Saint Laurent sneakers have grabbed inspiration from the Air Jordan 1. In the past the Saint Laurent SL/10 high top came in the same color scheme as the Air Jordan 1 in the Bred and Royal colorway. Saint Laurent once again seems to follow suit as their low top offering rocks the same look.

Coming in Bred and Royal colorways, the Saint Lauren SL/10 low top comes in a black and red or black and red premium leather upper. The same color blocking used on the Air Jordan 1 model is used on these pairs. Rounding out the look of both pairs are the black laces and white midsole. Completing the look is the Saint Laurent branding placed on the tongue of the shoe. Like what you see? A cool $595 gets you either of these pairs.

Author’s Take

It all depends on your preference, but personally I don’t want to buy a high fashion sneaker that looks like a Air Jordan sneaker. I want it to have its own look.

Another Look At The Air Jordan 1 Low OG Midnight Navy

Jordan Brand continues to release Air Jordan 1 Low models in OG fashion. Up next is the Air Jordan 1 Low OG Midnight Navy. Looking to mimic the success of the Air Jordan 1 Low OG Chicago, this Midnight Navy colorway release is only a few weeks away.

The shoe is very simple when it come to the colorway placed on the upper. It starts off with a white leather base that takes care of the majority of the shoe. Adding some color and contrast to the shoe are the Midnight Navy accents placed on the outsole, Nike Swoosh, lining, heel and tongue branding on the shoe. When it comes to the OG branding, Nike branding is placed on the tongue and the Wings logo is spotted on the heel. A white midsole and white set of laces tie up the look of shoe. Slated for a March 19th release, you can get a pair for the retail price of $130. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

I like the shoe. Although the colorway may not be as hyped up as the Bred, Royal, Shadow or Chicago pairs, the simple look of the shoe makes it very versatile.

Earl Thomas Stunts On Us With His Very Own Air Jordan 7 Gold Cleats

It looks like newly-retired NFL legend Charles Woodson is not the only one who was blessed by Jordan Brand with his very own pair of Air Jordan 7 Gold cleats. Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas also took to his IG to show the world that he’s got a pair as well. Although Earl Thomas did not take part in the Pro Bowl game (injury) this year, but Jordan Brand still showed him so love and gifted him a pair.

The Air Jordan 7 cleat comes in a gold upper contrasted nicely by the hits of white found on the tongue, laces and midsole. Would you pick up if these were to drop? Let us know in the comments below.

Dope clean and I don’t even play football! I’m sure these would sell well if Jordan Brand ever decides to drop them.

Travis Scott Gets Hooked Up With The Air Jordan Kobe Pack

The latest celebrity/athlete/musician to receive the Air Jordan Kobe Pack is rapper Travis Scott.

Earlier in the week Shinedown guitarist Zach Myers also posted the pairs he received from Jordan Brand along with both colorways of the Macklemore x Air Jordan 6. However unlike Myers, Travis Scott received the home white colorways of the Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8 instead of the black pairs that Myers received.

Are you a bigger fan of the black pairs or the white pairs? Let us know down below and keep it locked to Kicks On Fire to find out if this Air Jordan Kobe Pack will ever be getting a retail release.

The Air Jordan 10 Los Angeles Will Be Inspired By The Dodgers

We already know that and Air Jordan 10 City Pack will be releasing that will highlight four cities around the country. We have the Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag that draws inspiration from the city’s flag, the Air Jordan 10 NYC inspired by the Statue of Liberty, a Charlotte colorway, and now we have the Air Jordan 10 Los Angeles.

This Air Jordan 10 isn’t inspired by the Lakers though, instead Jordan Brand pays homage to the Boys In Blue and models the colorway after the LA Dodgers. The colors used on this Air Jordan 10 will be Ocean Fog, Blue Lagoon and Midnight Navy. The collar will also come with the “LA” embroidered logo instead of the 23 or 45 that we’re used to seeing.

The release date for the Air Jordan 10 Los Angeles is scheduled for May 14, 2016 for a retail price of $190. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for further updates and images once they release.

Note: There is no images of the sneaker yet.

Author’s Take

The Dodgers are my favorite baseball team but I already own the Royal 10s. So unless this pair is completely different then I intend on passing on them.

On-Feet Images Of The Air Jordan 4 PRM Snakeskin

Air Jordan 4 1 Air Jordan 4 2 Air Jordan 4 3 Air Jordan 4 4 Air Jordan 4 5

The Air Jordan 4 will be getting the premium treatment in 2016 much like the Air Jordan 1 did last year with all of its pinnacle releases. In addition to the black colorway of the Air Jordan 4 that will drop at the end of the month, we’ll also be seeing the pair that you see above hit retailers some time this year.

Instead of going with the slightly textured tonal upper and pony hair detailing that we saw on the black pair, this PRM Snakeskin colorway dresses up the shoe in beige and grey snakeskin leather with tumbled leather overlays on the tongue, wings and toe. Metal detailing has been added on the eyelets and heel for a luxurious look. Finishing things off is a white midsole/outsole unit that lets the upper do all the talking.

There is no firm release date yet for this premium Air Jordan 4 but they’re like to release some time this Summer with a hefty $400 price tag. It’s also important to not that there’s rumors that there only may be 5,000 pair available when they release so it won’t be an easy pick-up. Stay tuned for updates, but in the meantime enjoy these new on-feet images.

Author’s Take

Not a bad colorway of the Air Jordan 4 but if they do cost $400 then that’s just ridiculous. The only reason they’ll sell out is because there’s only 5,000 pairs.

NBA 2K16 Kicks: The Air Jordan 12 GS Dynamic Pink Looks Great In Bigger Sizes

In a special edition of NBA 2K16 Kicks (actually, the Foamposite Pro Pure Platinum edition was the special edition because it dropped early today), we’ve got a look at the Air Jordan 12 GS Dynamic Pink in a size most of the grown men reading this would appreciate because it’s in their size.

While we can all understand and respect Jordan Brand’s decision to keep the Dynamic Pink in GS sizes, we can’t help but wonder what the pair would look like if they got an men’s sizes release. One thing I know for sure is that they would not last long in stores because of their unique look. Don’t believe me? Remember how fast the Pearlized Pink flew off shelves when they dropped a few years ago? This would be no different.

Like last week’s look at the Air Jordan 12 The Master colorway in the game, some of the issues when creating a custom colorway remain, such as the difference of font on the “23” on the shoes and the lack of visible Jumpman branding on the heel. But those flaws are barely noticable in the game as Jimmy Butler pulls them off with ease.

The Late Charlotte Cummings, Who Stockpiled Jordans Since 1985, Has Her Collection On Display

When you think of vintage sneaker collectors, you’re pretty much always going to picture a male. It’s true, about 99% of the world’s community of vintage sneaker collectors are guys. And that’s what makes this amazing collection even more special and unique. On display now at the campus of Wallace State Community College in Alabama is the collection of the late Charlotte Cummings, who co-owned an athletic footwear store throughout the 1980s and ’90s with her husband Robin. Looking like a genius now, Charlotte began setting aside Air Jordans and other sneakers for safe-keeping beginning in the mid-80s, amassing the collection seen today in the museum environment. Unfortunately, Charlotte has since passed away, but Robin has kept her love for sneakers alive with the exhibition, even adding more sneakers to here original collection within the last two years. Those in the Hanceville, Alabama area can view the awesome collection until March 15th, 2016. You can also see more of the collection on Robin’s Instagram page.

New Details About The Air Jordan 3 Cyber Monday

Earlier this week rumors started circulating that an Air Jordan 3 would be releasing on Cyber Monday of 2016. That would be just three short days after the release of the Air Jordan 3 OG 88 True Blue which is scheduled to release on Black Friday.

Today new details have surfaced of this potential Air Jordan 3 release courtesy of reliable sneaker source @baltsneakershow. He has announced that they colorway of the Air Jordan 3 Cyber Monday will feature a “black upper and white bottom.” Sounds like it’ll be identical to the colorway that was seen on the Air Jordan 1 Cyber Monday last year.

Jordan Brand Wings It This Weekend With New Air Jordan 2 Release

Jordan Brand’s “Poster Collection” will come to a close this weekend with the introduction of the Air Jordan 2 “Wing It”. Mike’s second signature silhouette is one of his earliest models that is often looked over by fans due to the fact that he spent his sophomore season sidelined by injury. This Air Jordan 2 does manage to bring more than enough interest though thanks to a unique ‘Wing It’ heel branding based on an old school advertisement that ran in print magazines during 1987. The stark black and white contrast on the upper pays homage to the colorless ink the poster was printed in. Will you be grabbing a pair this Saturday, March 5th> Check out more photos below and reserve your pair on eBay.
