Gamma Green Colors The Jordan Eclipse
The lifestyle Jordan Eclipse is introduced in a new colorway of Gamma Green this season, which is particularly a grade school exclusive only.
Essentially aimed for the warmer seasons, the defining tone is prominent across its mesh upper, which offers a lightweight feel and superb comfort during daily wear. Additional pops of lime green are applied for its piping on the side panels and behind the tongue to further pronounce its already vibrant palette as well.
To top of its eye-catching profile, the model rests atop a clean white sole unit, although accentuated with slight green speckling to perfectly coordinate with its theme, the outsole receives enhanced grooves to ensure sufficient traction as well as cushioning. Other notable details include miniature branding on the tongue tab, as it’s rounded out with matching laces and Jumpman branding on the rear.
You can purchase this latest colorway of the silhouette at select JB stockists now for a price tag of $85.
Other than rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis, it looks like New York Knicks fans don’t have much to look forward to (yet again) this year. But if you happen to be a Knicks fan that’s also into Air Jordans, than here’s one bright spot for you in the latter part of the 2015-16 season: the all-new Air Jordan 5 Low in a colorway for your squad. The blue, orange, and white combination will be the perfect match with your new Kristaps jersey all summer long. We still have no confirmation on a US release date for the Air Jordan 5 Low “Knicks”, but it looks like they’re dropping in Asia on March 1st, so expect them on or around that date in New York and everywhere else in the States.
WWE Kicks: Shane McMahon Returns To Raw In The Air Jordan 1 Chicago
It finally happened; the prodigal son has returned. After a long absence from WWE television that saw him stake out his own place in the world, Shane McMahon made his long-awaited return to the wrestling ring to take what he claims is his rightful place as next in line in the family business. Despite sister Stephanie and brother-in-law Triple H and of course, Vince himself taking the company to new heights (or lows depending on how you view the product these days) in Shane’s time away, the “kid” doesn’t see it that way, citing the drop in TV ratings, stock prices and overall quality of the show as factors for his reemergence on the scene.
Yeah, it’s been too long since I heard “Here Comes The Money”. Thanks to a little behind-the-scenes dealings (aka retconning of past events), Shane was able to justify his sabbatical and had no problem pretty much demanding control of Monday RAW, the WWE’s flagship program. In what might be the smartest piece of writing the show has done in months, Vince turns Shane’s desire and ego into a potential blockbuster Wrestlemania main event, which as many people know is currently devoid of main event talent due to a laundry list of injuries. With no promotion or heads up, we now have a headliner match in Shane against the Undertaker inside Hell In A Cell. If ever there was a rabbit to pull out of the hat, this was it. Considering Shane was in enough shape to rock skinny jeans on Monday night, the plans for this were probably set in motion the moment guys like John Cena and Seth Rollins starting hitting the injured list.
Of course, this is a sneaker blog and we have to talk about Shane’s choice of footwear. To go along with those skinny jeans was a shiny pair of Air Jordan 1 Chicagos. And judging from the video up top, there is no Jumpman to be found so those are last year’s Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Chicago versions, which made me shed tears of sneaker sadness more than a few times last year. As many longtime fans of the WWE will no doubt remember, Shane used to rock OG Jordans all the time including a personal favorite of mine, the Air Jordan 3 True Blue.
Hyper Turquoise Covers This Upcoming Air Jordan 1 Low
There’s a new colorway of the Air Jordan 1 hitting retailers soon and it’s one of those colorways that’s ideal for the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons.
Covered in Hyper Turquoise on the majority of the leather upper, this Air Jordan 1 Low is then contrasted by Black detailing on the inner liner and Air Jordan branding on the tongue and heel. We then see the shoe finished off with a white midsole/outsole unit that complements the bright upper.
Already making its rounds overseas you can expect this Air Jordan 1 Low to arrive in the states in the near future.
There’s nothing too special about this colorway of the Air Jordan 1 so much like every other pair that releases I expect it to get discounted soon after it releases. In my opinion this looks more like a women’s colorway.
Our Best Look Yet At The Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag
Today we get our best look yet at the Air Jordan 10 from the upcoming City Pack that takes inspiration from the city that Michael Jordan called home for many years, Chicago.
The Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag was inspired by the actual colors from the flag of Chicago. White leather covers the majority of the upper with University Blue and Bright Crimson detailing landing on the laces, tongue, eyestay, outsole, heel tab and branding. A black outsole wraps things up along with ?CHI? written by the ankle in Bright Crimson and Black.
Take a look at the latest images above and let us know if you plan on picking up a pair come May 14th. Also make sure you visit our Air Jordan 10 Chicago Flag launch page for the latest images, videos and other updates.
Jordan Brand is scheduled to release another City Pack that will feature the Air Jordan 10 paying homage to a handful of cities that Michael Jordan has had an impact on. One of the shoes in the pack will pay its respects to the city of Chicago. Said to be inspired by the colors found in the Chicago flag, the shoe will come dressed in a white tumbled leather upper contrasted by the smooth leather hits coming in Crimson and Light Blue. Jumpman branding appears in crimson and is found on the heel, while the tongue comes with embossed Air Jordan branding on it. The letters “CHI”, which represent the city of Chicago, appear embroidered on the ankle collar of the shoe. Rounding out the major features of the shoe is the black lining and white midsole paired up with the crimson and light blue outsole.
Juan Carrillo, News:If this is in fact inspired by the Chicago flag, Jordan brand did a great job. Only thing is, I’m not too fond of the colors used on the Chicago flag. Aside from that, the Air Jordan 10 is one of my least favorite Jordan models.
There will definitely be whispers of “Tiffany” in regards to this upcoming colorway for the Air Jordan 1 Low, and we’re not talking about the ’80s pop singer. Of course, the Tiffany comparison for this turquoise and black look for the low-top 1s is the now-iconic Diamond Supply Co. color scheme on their famous Nike SB Dunks. If the Dunks in question have still eluded you to this point, are these a worthy substitute? Check out the “Hyper Turquoise” Air Jordan 1 Low in detail here, and expect them to his US Jordan Brand retailers soon.
If you can think back this is the same colorway that was spotted in the video where Don C went sneaker shopping at RIF L.A. with Complex. This Jimmy Butler PE colorway of the Air Jordan XX9 Low features a Chicago Bulls-inspired colorway as red and black elephant print dominate the entire upper with additional black detailing covering the inner liner, tongue and laces. A red midsole, icy blue outsole and Jimmy Butler’s logo on the tongue of the left shoe finish off the look on this XX9 Low that is scheduled to release on February 24th for $190.
In just a few more days, the much-anticipated Air Jordan 12 The Master will make its official debut at retailers worldwide.
As previously reported, the sneaker’s classic makeup essentially takes cues from the brand’s ad campaign which debuted in the late ?90s. The stealthy tone of black covers almost the sneaker’s entirety which is comprised of premium leather, while it continues towards the tongue and sole unit.
In addition, accents of grey on the miniature side panels, branding on the tongue and pull tabs subtly offset the makeup, followed by metallic gold accents on the upper eyelets. Priced at $190, you can purchase a pair at select Nike and JB stockists on February 27th.
Get ready folks, because this year’s return of the Air Jordan 12 is about to begin. One of the most celebrated Air Jordans of all is back in a big way in 2016, and it all kicks off with the impressive “The Master” colorway this weekend. Drawing inspiration from an iconic poster from the shoe’s original ad campaign in 1997, the shoe features an all-black leather upper with grey accents and metallic gold detailing. With a look that should be easily accepted as one of the best non-OG Air Jordan 12 colorways ever, these should be a hot commodity this Saturday, so take a good look at them here and mark the 27th on your calendars.
In this edition of Sneakers In 4K, we take a look at the upcoming Air Jordan 12 The Master. An elegant rendition of the iconic Air Jordan 12, The Master colorway takes its cues from an old school Michael Jordan Nike poster featuring His Airness in position to strike fear into his opponent like only the GOAT can. With a luxurious remastered tumbled leather with white and gold hits, this is sure to be a treasured pair with the Air Jordan 12 fans who have been waiting a long time for a proper wide release of the beautiful silhouette.
The Air Jordan XX9 Low Jimmy Buckets Has A Release Date
The Air Jordan XXX may be on the scene, but there’s still at least one release of the XX9 to look forward to. Just previewed earlier this morning, we now have a release details for the Air Jordan XX9 Low “Jimmy Buckets”. The shoe is a special edition for Jimmy Butler, one of the brand’s biggest ambassadors currently on the NBA court. With an obviously Bulls-themed colorway, the Flyweave upper sports a black and red elephant pattern with red leather heel panels complete with 3-D “23” on the heels. Jimmy’s logo is found on the right shoe’s tongue to finish them off. Enjoy a detailed look at the Air Jordan XX9 Low “Jimmy Buckets” here, and take note that they’ll be dropping this Wednesday at select Jordan Brand retailers.
Jordan Brand is making serious moves on the retail level. Just a few years ago, the only Jordan Brand in-store retail experience was inside NikeTowns and other retail partners, but it’s clear that the Jumpman logo is powerful enough to cultivate a standalone retail experience for its consumers. 32 South State was a major step forward as was the confirmation of 36 Yonge in Toronto, and today the largest Jordan store in Asia is now open for business. Located in the hustle and bustle of the Central District in Hong Kong, Jordan Brand at 8 Wellington offers unique experiences for shoppers such as reservation-only services, a Jumpman mural by Michael Lau, and much more. If you’re a Jordan-ite in the HK region, stop by today.

Central, Hong Kong
Time sure flies, doesn’t it? Seems like just yesterday Jordan Brand unleashed the six-part “Kilroy Pack”, which placed the Air Jordan 9 Retro as the centerpiece of an impressive collection inspired by MJ’s alter egos during his retirement. In 2016, Jordan’s first retirement shoe will be a big hit once again as the low-top version will be made available in a variety of colorways, like this bright red pair that features dark grey speckling and lining for that obvious appeal. You can expect these during the Summer seasons, when low-top Air Jordan Retros reign supreme. Peep another photo alongside the “Bred Snakeskin” pair below.
Jordan Brand Releases An Air Jordan XX9 Low Jimmy Buckets PE
As one of Jordan Brand’s top NBA performers for about the last year now, it’s about time the brand hooked Jimmy Butler up with something special. And that’s exactly what they did with this awesome Air Jordan XX9 Low PE, featuring a vibrant red elephant pattern across the Flyweave upper. Accompanied by a “Jimmy Buckets” t-shirt, the shoe will not only be a PE for Butler himself, as it’s hit retail in the Chicago area already. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for any info on a wider release, and get a hold of your Chicago friends in the meantime if you need a pair.
