Joining alongside the AJ 12 French Blue and AJ 12 Wings tomorrow, will be this bright rendition of the Air Jordan 2 Low.

While it may not be more desirable than the aforementioned pairs, this variation of the silhouette certainly catches your attention. Essentially covered in red, the bright and eye-catching hue subtly emphasizes the sneaker’s reptilian-like leather upper.

The only notable contrasting element is seen on the iconic wings logo gracing its tongue, although the insoles are also colored in turquoise. Finished off with matching laces and a full-length rubber sole unit, purchase at pair at JB and Nike stores tomorrow, April 2nd for $160.

This weekend’s releases is highlighted with this premium variation of the Air Jordan 12, while the AJ 12 French Blue and AJ 2 Low Gym Red will certainly receive its deserved attention as well.

Unlike the aforementioned silhouettes, this model is extremely limited to 12,000 pairs only. Sporting a simplistic and timeless black and white colorway, the punctuating element consists of a unique feather graphic on the leather upper, which is revealed when wiped or agitated on its surface.

Further detailed with touches of gold on the lace stays, miniature side panels, insole and outsole for a touch of luxury, alongside a poster-inspired overlay on the heel, you can purchase a pair exclusively at Nike’s The Draw app tomorrow, April 2nd for $225.

Author’s Take

I pretty much admire the silhouette. Aside from its classic palette, the application of gold has been well placed, plus the revealing wings graphic on the upper is a pretty cool touch.

Air Jordan 12 French Blue Releases Tomorrow In Full Family Sizes


After a number of setbacks and delays, the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” is finally releasing at retailers this Saturday, April 2nd. Following up the iconoclast that was the Air Jordan 11 was a difficult feat, but Tinker Hatfield manages to bring a refined sensibility with the Air Jordan 12 by implementing premium leather, an asymmetrical mudguard inspired by Japan’s rising sun flag, and carbon fiber on the outsole. The heel read ‘Quality Inspired By The Greatest Player Ever’ and showcased a mature outlook from the Jumpman that recently claimed brand independence in 1997. Are you excited about the pairs arrival after all of the delays? If you can’t wait for the French Blue 12s to release tomorrow, check for your size right now via eBay.

Air Jordan 1 High Nouveau Takes On The Pure Platinum Look


The Air Jordan 1 High Nouveau is returning in a colorway that will certainly bring back Kanye’s whole ‘Yeezy jumping over the Jumpman’ claim. If the colorway looks familiar, it’s because it is. A Pure Platinum monochromatic upper is accented with a Bright Crimson lining for a look reminiscent of a certain Yeezy 2 colorway. A synthetic reptilian texture adds a lifestyle feel while the Swoosh takes a departure from the norm to add ventilation through a dropped mesh construction. Check out a detailed look at the latest Air Jordan 1 lifestyle colorway and we’ll keep you updated on a release date right here on Sneaker News.

The Most Premium Jordan Horizon Release Is In Stores Now


Jordan Brand has introduced the Jordan Horizon through a premium collaboration with Public School NY, draped the woven upper in tribal patterns for Black History Month, and now is bringing a premium synthetic Croc Skin leather to the table. And yet, the overall response to the lifestyle offering hasn’t been nearly as large as it was for its predecessor, the Jordan Future. Perhaps the switch to a higher silhouette construction and Air Jordan 13 outsole still pales in comparison to the iconic Air Jordan 11 inspiration. But you can’t fault the Jumpman for continuing to be creative with textiles and this “Black Croc” offering is proof of that. Ominous croc-skin leather matches an all black midsole while touches of Infrared 23 hit the bottom for a unique look. Buy the latest premium Jordan Horizon offering today from select shops like Sneaker Politics for $185 USD.

Is The Air Jordan 2 Low Gym Red A Suitable Red October Replacement (Video)

Try as Jordan Brand and Nike might, there is no replacing the Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October. That shoe was what we would like to call a moment in time that can’t be replicated, no matter how hard anybody at any brand tries. Since that controversial sneaker dropped, we have seen multiple efforts by Nike to recreate the magic and while some are closer, it just doesn’t feel the same. Now that we are in 2016, is it even worth the effort? It looks like the answers point to “yes” because here’s Jordan Brand with an almost all-red effort with the Air Jordan 2 Low Gym Red. It’s got hints of Turquoise and Black but there’s not mistaking what shoe it’s trying to replicate. Can it even compare to the Nike Air Python that dropped in a similar style a while back?

For more information and news and images on this upcoming release, be sure to bookmark our Air Jordan 2 Low Gym Red launch page.

The Jordan Ultra Fly Hyper Turquoise Hits Stores Soon


Jimmy Butler isn’t a signature athlete with Jordan Brand just yet, but the two-way skillset he carries is tailor-made for superstardom.

In addition to the AJ 12 French Blue, this bright rendition of the Air Jordan 2 Low will be arriving at retailers this weekend as well.

Essentially defined by its bold reddish hue, the eye-catching tone engulf’s the model’s entirety. A reptilian-like leather material is utilized for the upper, while tonal synthetics are applied on the heel for additional reinforcement.

All resting atop a matching rubber sole unit, the sneaker’s notable contrasting element is evidenced by its wings logo on the tongue in black, in addition to turquoise-colored insoles.

To follow up on a scaly iteration, the iconic Air Jordan 1 High is offered in another classic finish, although this time offered in GS sizing.

Flaunting a premium build, white canvas is utilized for its underlays, tongue and laces, while the upper is adorned with black suede overlays that flow across the toe cap, along the eyelets, towards the ankle and rear. Additionally seen on the Swoosh branding and outsole, a clean white midsole unit solidifies the overall construction.

Finished off with subtle pink hits on the iconic wings logo, tongue and heel via branding, you can purchase this pair at select JB and Nike accounts now for $95.

Will You Be Picking Up The Air Jordan 11 Low Varsity Red This Summer

IMG_4565 IMG_4564 IMG_4563 IMG_4562 IMG_4561

Later this Summer we’ll be seeing the release of the Air Jordan 11 in the Varsity Red colorway.

Many people consider the Air Jordan 11 Low the best low-top Air Jordan silhouette of all-time so we expect for many people to go after this release. Looking at early images of this Air Jordan 11 Low we can see that the majority of the shoe is done in the traditional ballistic nylon mesh in white while Varsity Red covers the patent leather mudguard and some of the pods on the translucent outsole.

There is still no exact release date yet for this upcoming colorway of the Air Jordan 11 Low but we’ll keep you updated with the latest information here at Kicks On Fire to stay tuned.

Author?s Take

There?s only a couple of colorways of the Air Jordan 11 Low that I would consider buying and this white/red version isn?t one of them. I?m sure lots of people will be hyped to pick up a pair though.

This Premium Air Jordan Horizon Is Already Arriving At Retailers

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

Jordan Brand has given the new Air Jordan Horizon a brand new look with this recent release that replaces the old woven upper with a new croc textured leather.

As you can see the reconstructed upper now features black leather all over the shoe that comes with a croc texture to give the shoe a premium look. Other parts of the shoe including the inner liner, midsole, laces, tongue and outsole have also been done in black. The only hit of contrast comes on the outsole where we see sections of the shoe done in Infrared 23.

If you’re interested in a pair they’re beginning to arrive at select Jordan Brand retailers now for $185. Is this a cop or a pass for you?

Author’s Take

To be honest I think I prefer the woven mesh version instead of this leather pair. This looks like a luxury sneaker gone wrong.

Whats The Inspiration Behind The Air Jordan 17+ Bulls

AIR JORDAN 17+ 1 AIR JORDAN 17+ 2 AIR JORDAN 17+ 3 AIR JORDAN 17+ 4 AIR JORDAN 17+ 5 AIR JORDAN 17+ 6

We all know what the Air Jordan 17+ Bulls looks like, but do you happen to know what the inspiration is behind the shoe? Although many of you may know, there’s still some out there who don’t.

As you should all now by now, the shoe is slated to release on May 29th for the retail price of $250. But why did Jordan Brand decide to release this model in this colorway? Well, it turns out that the Bulls colorway of the Air Jordan 17+ pays tribute to the time Michael Jordan scored his 30,000th point. By this point in his career, he was no longer a part of the Chicago Bulls franchise. He was actually playing for the Washington Wizards. So, why the Bulls colorway? He happened to score his 30,000th point while playing against the Chicago Bulls. As you can see, when all is said and done all things come full circle. Now that you know the theme behind the shoe, does this make you want the shoe more? Less? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

The theme is cool, but in my opinion the shoe would have made more sense if Jordan would have showed love to the Wizards instead of the Bulls. Either way, still cool.
