While a few retailers already received and sold their inventory of the Nike Air More Uptempo in this classic colorway recently, it seems that the model will finally be available at the Swoosh’s online shop starting at noon, EST.

The model is essentially defined by its enlarged “AIR” branding gracing the outer and inner side panels, while juxtaposed against a clean white leather base with slight perforations in between to increase ventilation.

All resting atop a distinctive full-length air bubble enhanced sole unit, you can purchase this pair once again at Nike, starting today.

Author’s Take

I was a big fan of these sneakers when it initially released. I remember it very well on Scottie Pippen. Aside from the favorable colorway, I just like the overall design.

I like the silhouette overall. I?m over these type of finishes but this execution is pretty solid, especially since the colorway is really appealing.

Another Colorway Of The Swooshless Air Jordan 1 Low

Air Jordan 1 2 Air Jordan 1

Recently we showcased the first Swooshless Air Jordan 1 Low in a classic colorway of black and white.

Now, a fellow JB employee has published another rendition of the revised silhouette via social media and reveals that an “Arctic Orange” edition will be offered to the public as well. Composed of a premium textured leather upper with tonal laces, stitching and a clean white rubber sole unit, the model is essentially cleaner with the absence of the iconic check gracing its side panels.

While a release date has not been officially announced yet, sources suggest it should debut at the end of this month for $150.

Stay tuned in to KicksOnFire for additional details.

It looks more like a designer label sneaker. I’m all for simplicity and minimalism, but I’m really not that interested in purchasing this style.

The Air Jordan 12 Flu Game Returns To Stores Later This month

Michael Jordan’s “Flu Game” in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals is often regarded as one of MJ’s best performances in the history of the Playoffs. For the youngsters who aren’t familiar with that game, but are still planning to cop this Jordan Retro release, you might be well suited to hit YouTube and enjoy some clips from that legendary outing. While wearing this black/red Air Jordan 12, MJ scored 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block while stricken with the flu (hence the name, the Flu Game 12s). You have a few weeks until these officially hit stores, so get familiar with the game and the shoes with a video clip and photo gallery below.

Air Jordan 12 Air Jordan 12 1 Air Jordan 12 2 Air Jordan 12 3 Air Jordan 12 4

Another popular variation of the Air Jordan 12 is scheduled to debut at the end of May, as this particular pair garnered its fame during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz, while MJ was playing with flu-like symptoms.

Last reintroduced back in 2009, this forthcoming edition of the sneaker is essentially a remastered variation of its OG profile from 1997. Flaunting a premium tumbled leather composition, tonal black dominates the majority of the upper, inner lining, tongue and laces, while red converges along the forefoot, throughout the sole, rear portion and accenting the tongue as well.

Priced at $190, you can expect to find this standout pair at select Nike and JB accounts on Saturday, May 28th.

Air Jordan 1 Bred / Banned

Release Date: September 3 2016
Price: $160

The Air Jordan 1 Banned is making a comeback in 2016. Aside from sporting the dope and beloved black and red motif, the theme behind the shoe is just as amazing. One look at the shoe and it appears to be an Air Jordan 1 in the Bred colorway, it’s only when you take a look at the heel of the shoe that you will find the major difference between the two.

The Air Jordan 1 comes in the timeless black and red leather upper. This banned edition of the Air Jordan 1 references to the time ex-NBA commissioner, David Stern, forbid Jordan from wearing the sneakers due to the bold palette the high-tops came in. The major feature on shoe the lies in the ‘X’ branding found on the heel to represent the ‘banned theme of the shoe. There is also a famous quote from the JB commercial found on the insole of the shoes as well as the date that the sneakers were banned placed on the lining of the shoes.

This Nike Tennis Classic Nai-Ke Shows Love To China!

Nike Tennis Classic 1 Nike Tennis Classic 2 Nike Tennis Classic 3 Nike Tennis Classic 4 Nike Tennis Classic 5 Nike Tennis Classic 6 Nike Tennis Classic 7 Nike Tennis Classic 8 Nike Tennis Classic 9

The Nike Tennis Classic Nai-Ke is the latest model to show China some love by coming with unique character branding on them. For the most part, the iconic tennis shoe remains true to form as a white leather upper is accompanied by the perforations on the side panels that act as the Nike Swoosh branding. Debossed Nike branding is placed on the tongue, while the main attraction appears on the heel tab, where you will find a Maroon heel with white Nai-Ke stitching on it. Lastly, an all-white sole unit completes the tonal look of the shoe. Thoughts on the shoe? Stay tuned to find out when these get a release date.

Author’s Take

I passed on the Air Force 1 Nai-Ke when they dropped, and I’m a far bigger fan of that model than this one. I think it’s safe to say that I’m dropping on these too.

Another Look At The Jordan Flow Black / Cement Trainer

JORDAN FLOW 1 JORDAN FLOW 3 JORDAN FLOW 4 JORDAN FLOW2

In need of a new training shoe with a bit of retro appeal? Look no more as the Jordan Flow Trainer in the Black / Cement colorway just dropped.

The cross-trainer draws obvious inspiration from the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement, as the upper comes in a black base nicely contrasted by the Elephant print on the lateral forefoot and the Gym Red placed on the Jumpman branding and lining of the tongue. White takes care of the majority of the midsole to complete the Air Jordan 3 inspiration. The retro-inspired trainer is now up for grabs at select retailers for $125.

Author’s Take

I tend to stay away from Jordan Brand Cross Trainers, but the retro-inspired look on this pair caught my attention. I’d like to see they feel and look on feet, but for $125, they’re not too bad.

Author’s Take

I’m a big fan of the original Nike Air Huarache and this Ultra version looks a lot like the original. This colorway has a nice pop to it but I don’t like it enough to actually cop a pair.

An Official Look At The Jordan Horizon Midnight Navy

JORDAN HORIZON 1 JORDAN HORIZON 2 JORDAN HORIZON 3 JORDAN HORIZON 4 JORDAN HORIZON 5 JORDAN HORIZON 6

Fans of the Jordan Horizon will be happy to hear that more colorways of the lifestyle model are on the way. One colorway you can expect to see at the end of the month is the Jordan Horizon Midnight Navy.

Coming in a Midnight Navy mesh upper, the tonal look of the shoe is offset by the Pure Platinum hits seen on the threading of the mesh. Below you will find an Air Jordan 13 sole unit in which the midsole comes in white and the outsole comes in Midnight Navy to balance out the aesthetics of the shoe. Jordan branding is spotted on the tongue tag and outsole. Slated for an end of the month release, let us know if you plan on scooping up a pair.

Author’s Take

I have this same colorway on the Jordan Future. Picking up this one would really not make any sense since both models are very similar.

The Nike Air Max BW has been given the premium treatment this Spring and if you’re a fan of the silhouette you’re gonna love it. If you’re not then you’re probably going to be tempted to make this your first pair.

This newest colorway of the retro runner from Nike takes a straightforward lifestyle approach by getting covered in an Obsidian denim upper with suede detailing on the eyestay, toecap and mudguard. Contrasting tan/orange lands on the suede tongue as well as on the laces. Last but not least we have a gum outsole finishing things off.

If you’re interested in picking up this denim-covered Air Max BW you can do so now at select Nike retailers.

Author’s Take

The Nike Air Max BW never really caught my attention in its regular build, but this denim pair looks pretty nice. Great job by Nike with this colorway.
