Michael Jordans Concord 11s From The 72-10 Season Are Being Auctioned Off

Twenty years ago, Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to the single greatest season in NBA history. Their 72 wins was the record for most triumphs in a season, until Golden State shattered that mark just a few months ago. What makes the ’96 Bulls a superior team is that they took home a Championship, which matters far more than regular season wins. That season, Jordan rotated the “Concord” and “Bred” colorways of the Air Jordan 11, and SCP Auctions will feature a game-worn, autographed pair on August 3rd. How much will these sell for? Give us your predictions.

The HYPEBEAST x New Balance MRT580 Is Revealed


Hypebeast has been on a collaborative tear throughout 2016. Their latest work of art comes in the form of two upcoming Hyepbeast New Balance MRT580 pairs dubbed the “Land And Space Pack” set to release on August 6th.

After a teaser that showcased an asteroid falling to earth in a grim hint at what the Hypebeast New Balance collaboration’s theme would be, we finally get a detailed preview of the upcoming collection courtesy of My Wife and Kicks. Both shoes come in an oversized black box with individual packaging showing off translucent covers for an interesting twist when compared to traditional boxing choices.

The first New Balance 580 “Land” represents a post-apocalyptic Earth featuring an eerie grayish green upper. The shade pays homage to the exploration of abandoned buildings that ‘captivates the explorer’ in everyone. A hairy suede construction pairs nicely with a ripstop nylon on the toe and ankle collar. The model comes equipped with the updated REVlite midsole for extra cushion in the ride.

Then there’s the updated New Balance 580 Re-Enginered “Earth”, a modern take on the retro running model that utilizes laser cut panels for a lightweight, lifestyle inclined take. The black matte color features white speckles for a starry twist.

What do you think of the latest Hypebeast New Balance release? The New Balance MRT580 “Land And Space” Pack will arrive via Hypebeast.com on August 6th followed by a global release at select shops on August 16th. Check out the full unveiling video below.

The Nike LeBron Soldier 10 With Multi-Color Straps Releases Soon


Summer is still serious thanks to this LeBron Soldier 10. Even though LeBron James is taking a break from the Olympics, he’s keeping busy this summer at the Nike Basketball Academy out in Los Angeles where he’s schooling some of the best prep ballers in the country. He even debuted a brand new colorway of his Nike LeBron Soldier 10 model. While it’s unlikely that that particular pair hits retailers anytime soon, today we get a look at an upcoming Nike LeBron Soldier 10 “Summer Soldier” pair slated to release on August 4th.

This LeBron Soldier 10 utilizes a simple black mesh upper complete with its laceless construction, but with a twist. The Swoosh branding utilizes a tropical theme in reference to summer with palm leaves and gradients galore. That accent matches perfectly with the ankle strap’s Multi-Color pattern. Zoom Air adds lightweight cushioning perfect for a quick first step. As for the laceless design, it still remains to have a polarizing appeal with the three oversized straps offering up lockdown support.

For more of the Soldier 10, check out his latest “Academy PE” right here on Sneaker News.

LeBron James Laces Up The Unreleased Soldier 10 Academy PE


Reigning NBA Finals MVP LeBron James is taking a ‘relaxing’ approach to summer after bringing Cleveland its first championship in over 50 years. If by relaxing you mean potentially plotting Space Jam 2, sitting out the Olympics, and training some of the best High School ballers at the Nike Basketball Academy through the heat of summer. We already know that LeBron’s a fan of the Nike LeBron Soldier 10 given his gold-flaked PEs throughout the epic seven game series against the Warriors. Now he has a new colorway to flaunt – the Nike LeBron Soldier 10 “Academy” PE.

Nike Basketball has been giving the LeBron Soldier 10 plenty of interesting color-blocking choices.

Side By Side Comparison Of The Banned Air Jordan 1 And Air Jordan 31


How does the Air Jordan 31 “Banned” stack up when compared to its inspiration? Today we get a look at a side-by-side comparison of both models slated to release on September 3rd as the iconic Black and Red look that was yes, ‘banned’, during Michael Jordan’s rookie season returns in both new and retro form. The overriding thematic element of the Jordan 31 has been paying homage to the Air Jordan 1. What better way to do it than through the implementation of his iconic “Banned” colorway?

Right off the bat, you can see that this year’s signature Jordan takes a lifestyle aesthetic with the overall shape of the silhouette mirroring the traditional contours of the Air Jordan 1 despite the updated woven upper throughout. The heel and tongue especially showcase this similarity. While there’s a subtle gradient of a Nike Swoosh on the side panel of the Jordan XXX1, the colorway is actually where these pairs make creative differences. The Jordan 31 “Banned” utilizes a gradient where a black heel fades into a more vibrant red on the toe. The ‘Banned’ callouts come in the form of bold lettering on the sole and inner tongue.

While traditionalists will undoubtedly prefer the Air Jordan 1 “Banned” due to its historic context, what do you think of Jordan Brand’s effort to make the Jordan 31 both a performance juggernaut and a pair you can wear off the court with ease? Check out more photos below and grab your pair on September 3rd.
