Nike Air Penny 2 Orlando Magic Home Returning Soon


Nike Basketball is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Nike Air Penny 2 by bringing back a number of classic colorways this summer. Penny’s signature line is second only to Michael Jordan’s in the pantheon of 90s basketball history, and if it weren’t for numerous injuries, who knows how many more Penny signatures there’d be. The latest colorway slated to release is a simple Orlando Magic Home rendition, one that sees a sterile white upper accented by just a few hints of the “Atlantic Blue” shade on the heel and lining. Black does most of the heavy lifting on the outsole, piping, and tongue while ‘1 Cent’ logos can be found prominently stitched on the side panels. Catch a detailed look at the latest Penny 2 retro colorway below and we’ll keep you updated on a release date in the near future.

Air Jordan 30 Air Jordan 30 1 Air Jordan 30 2 Air Jordan 30 3 Air Jordan 30 4 Air Jordan 30 5 Air Jordan 30 6 Air Jordan 30 7

With the Oklahoma City Thunder currently leading (2-1), in a best-of-seven series against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the NBA postseason, OKC’s star guard, Russell Westbrook has been seen sporting exclusive variations of the Air Jordan 30.

A notable JB advocate, two pairs are highlighted, particularly in the “Away” OKC colors with predominantly photo blue and orange accents with the netted motif on its heel.

The other model flaunts a pristine makeup in all-white, alongside silver detailing. Additionally, the model flaunts the word “Dangeruss” on the insoles as a reflection of his personality on the court.

Unfortunately, these colorways won’t be available to the public. Check them out on court as the Thunder pursue an NBA Championship.


Author’s Take

I’ve shared before that I’m a fan of the model’s simple makeup. Out of the two, I’d have to side with the white pair just because it’s more versatile and stylish.

The Best NBA Draft Day Trade In NBA History Celebrated Through Kobe 11 Release

The story never gets old: Kobe Bryant, drafted thirteenth overall out of Lower Merion H.S. by the Charlotte Hornets, gets traded on the night of the NBA draft to the Los Angeles Lakers in a move that, in hindsight, looks like highway robbery. Jerry West, who orchestrated the trade, believed Kobe would be a massive star and took the opportunity to get the future Black Mamba in yellow and gold. Still, it’s fun to think of a possible scenario featuring Kobe as a Hornet, but it’s clear that the man would’ve achieved the pinnacle of success wherever he played. Get the latest rendition of the Kobe 11 “Draft Day” next Thursday, April 28th at select Nike retailers like Deadstock Canada.

This Years Air Jordan 7 Olympic Release Was Tinker Hatfields Alternate Design From 1992


Did you know that Tinker Hatfield designed multiple variations of the Air Jordan 7 Olympic for Michael Jordan’s trip to Barcelona in 1992? This summer, Jordan Brand is celebrating the near quarter-century anniversary of the Dream Team as USA Basketball readies for the Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro by releasing the rare Air Jordan 7 Olympic Alternate pair. The feature that stands out the most has to be the unique Air Jordan 7 heel construction featuring an American flag with Michael Jordan’s Olympic number 9 placed prominently off-center. The heel tabs even alternate between Fire Red and Deep Royal Blue for a unique twist. The Olympic Alternate Jordan 7s will release on August 16th for $190 USD.

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

Following the recent French Blue and Wings iterations, the Air Jordan 12 is set to be offered in another brand new colorway this season.

Essentially flaunting a simple finish, wolf grey consists as its dominating tone across the leather upper, tongue and laces, while white converges onto the forefoot and rubber sole unit to create an aesthetically pleasing combination of shades.

To further pronounce its profile, the defining contrasting element is evidenced on the miniature side panels and Jumpman branding on the tongue tab, as metallic silver are utilized for the top eyelets to finish off its makeup.

Priced at $190, the sneaker is scheduled to drop at select JB accounts on June 25th.

Head over to our official Air Jordan 12 Grey/University Blue launch page now for more information.

Author’s Take

I like the simplicity of the silhouette?s profile. In this colorway, it?s solid, but I would have preferred it more without the touches of Blue.

The Nike Kobe 11 Draft Day Drops Next Week

Nike Kobe 11 Nike Kobe 11 1 Nike Kobe 11 2

Originally drafted by Charlotte Hornets, this latest variation of the Nike Kobe 11 reflects what could have been, as it essentially pays tribute to Kobe Bryant’s very brief stint with the team back in 1996 before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Featuring the Hornets’ signature colors respectively, white and light grey overlays are utilized for its breathable engineered mesh upper, while the theme is prominently seen on the tongue, laces, inner lining and larges Swooshes on the side panels in vibrant shades of purple and blue lagoon.

All resting atop a clean white sole unit, you can purchase this forthcoming pair at select Nike accounts on April 28th for $160.

I?ve shared before that I?m a fan of the silhouette?s design. This colorway is a nice homage and it?s pretty appealing in general. Fans of the Black Mamba should consider purchasing.

Nike-kyrie-2-team-red-suede 1 Nike-kyrie-2-team-red-suede 2 Nike-kyrie-2-team-red-suede 3 Nike-kyrie-2-team-red-suede 4

We got our first look at the Nike Kyrie 2 Team Red a couple days ago, and today we’re here to provide you with the latest images.

This latest version of the Kyrie 2 comes in an all-Team Red motif, but what really sets this version apart from past Kyrie 2 releases is the fact that it comes with a suede mid-foot strap, which is something we’ve never seen before on the model. The used of suede on the shoe ends up giving it more of a premium look and feel. Additional features include the speckling on the Team Red sole unit, and the tonal branding on the tongue, strap and heel. Set to drop April 27 for $120, is this Kyrie 2 on your radar? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

Big fan of Team Red and I really like the way it looks on the Kyrie 2. Although Nike has not yet confirmed it, I heard these will drop in GS sizing only, which totally sucks if it ends up being true.

Nike Air More Uptempo 2 Nike Air More Uptempo 3 Nike Air More Uptempo 4 Nike Air More Uptempo 5 Nike Air More Uptempo 6 Nike Air More Uptempo 7

Although Nike hasn’t “officially” released the Nike Air More Uptempo White / Varsity Red, there are already a handful of people who have managed to get their hands on a pair.  While we wait for a wider release, today we get our latest look of the boldest colorway on Scottie Pippen (un)official shoe.

The shoe starts off with a White leather upper. The White palette is beautifully contrasted by the Varsity Red hits placed on the ‘AIR’ branding on the side panels, which happens to extend all the way to the heel region. The bottom of the ‘AIR’ letters also happen to reach the midsole region, resulting in a larger than life branding hit. Additional red hits found by way of the Nike Swoosh branding can be seen on the midsole, toe and tongue. As stated before , these are beginning to arrive at select Nike stockists, so be on the lookout if you’re aiming for a pair.  Is this better than the Black and White OG colorway? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

Not a big fan of the silhouette, but this colorway definitely pops. The red hits really help accentuate the unique features on the shoe.

air jordan 10 nyc 1 air jordan 10 nyc 2 air jordan 10 nyc 3 air jordan 10 nyc 4 air jordan 10 nyc 5 air jordan 10 nyc 6

Okay, now that we know what the Air Jordan 10 NYC’s latest release date is, who is planning on picking up a pair? As we’ve gotten closer and closer to the release date, it appears as if the shoe’s popularity is gaining more and more momentum. Being that it comes in a very versatile colorway, it’s fairly easy to like the shoe.

The NYC colorway of the Jordan 10 comes dressed in a tonal black upper constructed out of two different types of leather. The black leather is accompanied by even more of the same hue placed on the eyelets, laces, lining and tongue. Creating minimal contrast as well as a classic color combination are the gold hits strategically placed on the Jumpman on the outsole, the “NYC” embroidered on the ankle, and the striped (black/gold) heel pull tab. There’s even a bit of gold speckling placed on the black and dark grey outsole. A blacked-out Jumpman appears on the heel, and the Jordan branding on the tongue comes in embossed fashion. Dropping April 27th for $190, who’s copping? Be sure to bookmark our official Air Jordan 10 NYC launch page now for additional information on the upcoming release.

Author?s Take

I like the use of two different leathers, but when it comes down to it, it?s an all-black shoe on a model I?m not too fond of. It?s a pass for me.

Compton Is Well Represented On This Nike Cortez QS

NIKE CORTEZ QS 1 NIKE CORTEZ QS 2 NIKE CORTEZ QS 3 NIKE CORTEZ QS 4

Growing up in the Los Angeles area during my entire childhood, not a day went by where I didn’t see at least one kid in my school rock a fresh pair of Cortez. The Nike Cortez may not be as well known as a Nike Air Force 1, but there’s no denying that the shoe has made a big impact in Southern California street culture. Barrios and hoods such as Watts, East Los Angeles and Compton were all well represented with the Cortez. This time around, the Cortez is going to represent one of those cities. Let’s take our first look at the Nike Cortez QS Compton.

Coming in two tonal offerings, the Cortez come in all-white or all-black rocking the nylon and leather construction. The shoe honors Compton by using the type font synonymous with the city on the branding placed on the heel as ‘1972’ is embroidered in tonal fashion. Tonal branding, laces and sole units complete the simple look of the shoe. Said to be dropping on April 29th, let us know if you plan on picking up a pair.

Author?s Take

It’s dope to see one of the cities that reps the Cortez the hardest get some love from Nike. I was always around the Cortez, but I was never one to rock it. I was more of an AF1 guy. Easy pass on my end.

White On White Air Force 1s With New Materials

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 5 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 6 Nike Air Force 1 7 Nike Air Force 1 8 Nike Air Force 1 9 Nike Air Force 1 10 Nike Air Force 1 11 Nike Air Force 1 12

Nike has given the Air Force 1 a new look courtesy of the Woven version that we’ve previously seen in an all-black colorway.

Now the same look shifts over to the low-top rendition of the classic Nike silhouette. This Air Force 1 comes in the beloved all-white colorway with woven, pebbled leather and patent leather detailing all featured on the upper. The woven details land on the quarter panels and the toebox, the pebbled leather appears on the midfoot, eyestay and on the ankle and heel, and the glossy patent leather covers the Swoosh and heel tab. Silver detailing has been added on the branding to give the shoe a nice pop.

If you like the modern version of the all-white Air Force 1 then you can pick up a pair at select Nike retailers now for $100.

Author’s Take

There’s a little too much going on as far as the materials go. I think the shoe would have looked better without the patent leather hits.
