Author’s Take

This silhouette is one my favorite sneakers, but, this colorway isn?t that appealing in my view. I?m not a fan of the colors and I guess it?s a good thing this is limited to GS pairs only.

It started with a live auction in Hong Kong that just came to a close, and according to a live stream video posted in the SneakerheadUK Facebook group, the winning bid was 84,872 GBP, which converts to $104,267 (according to Google).

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Top 3

Release Date: November 28, 2016 
Price: $160

Originally believed to be some kind of Air Jordan 1 High “What The Release”, this upcoming release is actually named the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Top 3. The shoe gets dubbed the “Top 3″ colorway because it is defined by utilizing three of the original Air Jordan 1 colorways we all know and love. Those colorways include, Chicago, Banned/Bred and the Royal colorway. Each colorway/theme is blended across the silhouette?s premium leather profile. In addition, the number 3 also signifies the draft spot that Michael Jordan was select in the 1984 NBA Draft. The left shoe is completely different from the right shoe, while one shoe has a Red outsole and the other has a Royal outsole. Nike Air branding on the tongue and Wings branding on the collar round out the main features of the shoe.

Juan Carrillo, News: The theme of the shoe had potential, but the execution could have been better. I wanted to like the shoe, but I don’t think it’s a pair I see myself picking up.

Air Jordan 12 3M Reflective

Release Date: TBA
Price: TBA

The Air Jordan 12 3M Reflect is a brand new colorway set to drop on Jordans 12th signature sneaker. Said to be a special version of the retro, you can expect the release to be a limited edition one.

The colorway consists of a White upper taking care of the majority of the base. Gving the shoe a unique motif is the hits of 3M placed all over the shoe. Subtle yet noteworthy details include the wooden lace tips, the minimal Gold accents. Although it’s not confirmed yet, features such as the special foreign branding on the tongue leads us to believe that this drop could end up being a China exclusive. No word on when these drop, but stay tuned and we’ll have that info for you as soon as it becomes available.

Author’s Take

Juan Carrillo, News: I’m not crazy about the 3M upper, but when it’s not lit, it’s just a Jordan 12 with a White upper. Nothing to innovative about that, right?

Even the upper eyelets, inner liner, tongue, midsole, and outsole have also been done in Deep Royal Blue. The only contrast comes on the branding which appears on the tongue, heel, and outsole.

Author’s Take

The suede upper is pretty cool, but I’m not a fan of the all royal blue look. Jordan Brand should have added more contrast to this colorway. I’ll pass on them.

WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne Has Here Own Hyperdunk 2016 PE


So far, this year’s Hyperdunk silhouette has garnered attention mainly for the Nike Hyperdunk 2016 Elite model thanks to a brand new construction featuring premium doses of Flyknit, a high-arching sock-like fit, and a dynamic Zoom Air cushioning system that makes it one of the more luxurious basketball models to come out this year. You can’t dismiss the regular entry-level Nike Hyperdunk 2016 though, especially when it comes in a special PE colorway in honor of WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne.

The small forward had an incredible year both with the Chicago Skye and with the women’s USA Olympic National Team in Rio this past summer. This particular colorway features a clean white upper with accents of a minty Green Glow shade on the outsole, laces, and lining. The heel construction features a unique graphic print with cartoonish doodles and phrases like ‘The Path Less Traveled’ and “No Excuses” meant to motivate.

There’s no word yet on a stateside release date, but you can grab your pair today from select shops like Kickz.com. More photos below.

An Array Of Flags Are Featured On Victor Cruzs National Hispanic Heritage Month Cleats

Victor Cruz was celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month last night as the Giants faced off against the Green Bay Packers. Cruz’s mother is Puerto Rican and his father is African- American, which makes him half Latino.

Sneaker customizer Kickasso cooked up some custom Nike cleats for Cruz dubbed the Hispanic Heritage Month cleats. Seen above, the cleats feature a grey upper with red and blue detailing on the laces, branding, and outsole, all which represent the colors of Puerto Rico. The Swoosh logo has been filled in with the flags of a few Hispanic countries, while the outsole has the Puerto Rican flag on it.

Great gesture by Cruz to represent and show love to his culture, and also great work by Kickasso for yet another dope custom cleat.

If Nike Auctioned The Mags, How Much Would They Sell For Heres What 10,000 People Think

Today is the final day for entrants to submit tickets to the Nike Mag raffle. Just 89 pairs will be given out on random, with winners being notified on October 17th. But what if Nike decided to auction them off on eBay, just like what they did with the 2011 release? For one, not many would be happy, because the shoes would be almost unattainable given the predicted prices. We asked the Twitter community what they thought the final average selling price for the self-lacing Nike Mags would be, and with almost 10,000 votes tallied, we have a better idea of what the sneaker community values these shoes at. Of course, there are some philanthropists with deep pockets whose sole focus is to benefit the Michael J. Fox foundation, so these numbers could be higher.

We posed four price ranges, starting from $10,000. See what Twitter thinks the average selling price would be, and remember, Nike is planning on doing live auctions for three more pairs in November (London, Shanghai, and New York City). You can still enter the raffle here until October 11th, 2016.

The Air Jordan 3 Returns This Weekend With An All Black Colorway

air jordan 3 air jordan 3 2 air jordan 3 1

The Air Jordan 3 will be making a return this upcoming weekend after a pretty long hiatus.

Jordan Brand will be releasing what many consider to be the best Air Jordan silhouette of all-time in a new tonal colorway that covers the entire upper of the shoe in a premium black leather. The signature elephant print detailing has been left off of this colorway which many people aren’t too happy about. Down below we have a contrasting white sole unit to finish things off.

You can look for this blacked out Air Jordan 3 at select Jordan Brand accounts beginning on October 15, 2016. The shoe will be available in full family sizing.

Click and bookmark our official Air Jordan 3 Cyber Monday launch page now for more images, info and release details.

Author’s Take

Gone for two years and this is the colorway that Jordan Brand decides to come back with. Way too plain and boring. Easy pass on my end.

Puts Some Pep In Your Step With The Reebok Fury Adapt Iridescent Cage

REEBOK FURY ADAPT 1 REEBOK FURY ADAPT 2 REEBOK FURY ADAPT 3 REEBOK FURY ADAPT 4 REEBOK FURY ADAPT 5

The Reebok Fury Adapt Iridescent Cage is a fairly new Reebok model. It’s said to be an adapted version of the Insta Pump Fury. Up next for this women’s exclusive model is the Reebok Fury Adapt Iridescent Cage.

Just like the nickname of the shoe suggests, the Reebok Fury Adapt Iridescent Cage features an all-Black upper accompanied by the iridescent coating on the cage. Constructed out of mesh and neoprene, the shoe is till comfortable, it just comes with a little more flare this time around. Additional features include the bungee-style lacing, the Hexalite cushioning and the aforementioned TPU midfoot cage. Ladies, what do you think? Would you rock these?

Author’s Take

I actually like this model more than the Insta Pump Fury, it just looks a little more wearable. I really don’t care for the flashy cage, but it is what it is.

The Reebok Classic Leather Solid Pack Is Simple Yet Effective

REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER  1 REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER  2 REEBOK CLASSIC LEATHER  3

We recently went over the The Reebok Classic Leather Quilted Pack, now we’re going over another tonal pack that goes by the name of the Reebok Classic Leather Solid Pack. If you’re looking for a pair of versatile and tonal sneakers, any of these will do.

The Reebok Classic Leather Solid Pack takes the tonal route as three different colorways of the model are all done in monochromatic fashion. The shoe comes in your choice of either, White, Red or Dark Green. The tonal hue takes care of the entire leather upper, including the laces, branding and lining and even more of the same hue can be seen on the entire sole unit. A unique feature on the shoe is the tonal rubber branding noted on the panels and tongues of the shoe. Which pair do you like the most? I’d have to go with the Dark Green. Expect these to arrive stateside in the near future.

Author’s Take

Dark Green is one of my favorite colors on sneakers. I don’t own this model but I’d be down to pick up this pair.

Odell Beckham Jr. Makes A Statement For His Critics With Custom Cleats

Odell Beckham 1 Odell Beckham 2

The New York Giants were on prime time last night as they faced the Green Bay Packers during Sunday Night Football.

Odell Beckham faced lots of criticism this week after making comments that football wasn’t fun for him anymore. The star wide receiver made a statement by wearing a custom pair of Nike cleats designed by customizer Kickasso which featured portrait images of of Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. The caption under Kickasso’s picture reads “Gametime baby Ray Charles to the bullshit” which could be a reference to Beckham not paying attention and ignoring all of the critics as of late.

What are your thoughts on OBJ’s cleat game for this week?
