NIKE AIR RIFT 1 NIKE AIR RIFT 2 NIKE AIR RIFT 3 NIKE AIR RIFT 4 NIKE AIR RIFT 5 NIKE AIR RIFT 6 NIKE AIR RIFT 7 NIKE AIR RIFT 8 NIKE AIR RIFT 9 NIKE AIR RIFT 10 NIKE AIR RIFT 11 NIKE AIR RIFT 12

As if the Nike Air Rift wasn’t “unique” enough already, NikeLab has taken the sneaker/sandal and given it a brand new look by removing the strap.

Known as the NikeLab Rift Wrap, this modified silhouette features a seamless upper that is constructed out of a ventilated mesh for some added breathability. Another new feature/addition is the Swoosh on the toe that gives the shoe some added flair. Coming in two tonal options of either all-black or all-white, you can expect the NikeLab Rift Wrap to release at select NikeLab locations in the near future.

What are your thoughts on this new “updated” version of the Nike Air Rift?

Strap or no strap, I’m not a fan of the Air Rift. These are an easy pass for me.

Last seen in 1994, the Air Jordan 2 Low Chicago will be making its triumphant return 22 years later.

Worn by Michael Jordan back in his early days in the NBA, the Air Jordan 2 Low Chicago is one of the few low-top sneakers that Michael actually wore on the court. Dressed in a White leather upper with textured detailing around the ankle, the Chicago theme is then completed with Varsity Red and Black detailing throughout the shoe. If you’re a person that likes to collect classic sneakers that MJ actually wore then this is a pair that you don’t wanna pass up on.

Cop yours at select Jordan Brand retailers on May 21st for $160. Also make sure you visit our Air Jordan 2 Low Chicago launch page for all of the images, news and release information we have on this release.

I’m still mad that these are releasing in low-top form and not the original Mid version. If that were the case I would have grabbed these without thinking twice.

This is my least favorite colorway out of the entire pack. That red upper looks more like orange which I’m not really a fan of.

The second colorway from the Air Jordan 1 Low No Swoosh collection is this Arctic Orange pair that is clearly the best option for the Summer thanks to its vibrant upper.

Equipped with a premium tumbled leather all throughout the upper that looks like something we would usually see on a designer shoe, this low-top version of the Air Jordan 1 is then covered in an Arctic Orange hue that screams Spring/Summer. As you already know there is no Swoosh on this pair of 1s so the only branding comes with the Nike Air on the tongue and Wings logo on the heel. Last we see a Sail sole unit added for contrast.

If I were to pick up one of the pairs from this Camo Pack it would be this one of the black/gold colorway. However I’m a bigger fan of the tonal options.

The Carpe Diem Colorway Returns On The Nike Kobe 11 Tomorrow

The Carpie Diem theme/colorway will be making its triumphant return on the Nike Kobe line tomorrow when it lands on the Nike Kobe 11.

Instead of going with the traditional Flyknit upper, Nike decided to dress up this Kobe 11 with an engineered mesh upper that we’ve seen on a couple of recent Kobe 11 releases. This Nike Kobe 11 Carpe Diem features a Black mesh on the upper with contrasting hits of White, Court Purple and University Gold throughout different areas of the shoe. Serving as the icing on the cake is the quilted stitched pattern that shows up on the inner liner and Kobe Bryant’s signature on the heel of the right shoe.

Arriving at select Nike retailers tomorrow, May 21st, will you be picking up the Nike Kobe 11 Carpe Diem? Retail price has been set at $160.

Author’s Take

The colorway on this Kobe 11 is cool if you’re a Kobe/Lakers fan, the only thing I’m disappointed with is the engineered mesh upper instead of Flyknit. Why?

Tomorrow Jordan Brand will be giving the iconic Air Jordan 1 a completely new look as they plan on releasing three tonal colorways of the Air Jordan 1 Low.

If you were planning on picking up either of the three colorways today we show you some on-feet pictures of all three to get you ready for the release. First we have the Black pair which features tumbled leather all over the upper with a contrasting Sail midsole and Nike Air branding on the tongue. A nice finishing touch is the gold aglets that give a nice pop of contrast. And of course we can’t forget about the absence of the Swoosh branding.

Author’s Take

I expect this to be the pair that sell out the fastest because you can match up black with anything and have it look good. I still can’t get over how nice that leather is.

It doesn’t look like Jordan Brand will be following the “champagne & cigar” theme on the Championship which I think it a good thing. Time to switch things up.

I’m kind of stuck between grabbing these or the Cherry 12s. I haven’t heard updates on the Cherrys releasing this year so I may have to pick up these Gym Reds.
