Over the last couple of weeks we’ve given you some looks at a few colorways of the all-new Jordan Reveal silhouette, including the Spring-appropriate Hyper Turquoise pair.

The silhouette is still very new so many sneakerheads may not even know about it, but Jordan Brand is already giving it the premium treatment. This new colorway of the Jordan Reveal that you see above features a grey mesh upper with tan leather detailing on the heel and tongue. The Vachetta Tan detailing definitely gives a more premium look and feel to the shoe.

Author’s Take

I already thought that the Jordan Reveal was a pretty nice looking shoe with the mesh along, but this new pair with the Vachetta Tan leather detailing makes them look even better. Now I NEED to see these in person.

A handful of Air Jordan 2 models have already dropped this year, but this is the first time that the shoes comes with the top down. In other words, this weekend will bring us the first Air Jordan 2 Low release of the year, the Air Jordan 2 Low Gym Red.

Not only will the Gym Red colorway be the first Air Jordan 2 Low release of the year, it’s also the boldest and most vibrant looking pair from all of the Air Jordan 2s that have dropped. This time around the Jordan 2 Low is dressed in a Gym Red aesthetic from head to toe. That Gym Red is placed on the full-grain scale-like leather upper, the entire sole unit, lining, laces, tongue and heel tab. The only part of the shoe that does not come in red happens to be the black accents placed on the Jordan Wings branding on the tongue. With so many releases dropping this week, will this be a Jordan retro you will be going after? With the shoe dropping April 2nd for $160, don?t forget to check out our Air Jordan 2 Low Gym Red launch page for additional images and updates.

Author’s Take

The Air Jordan 2 Low is a Jordan retro that I don’t mind seeing in low-top fashion. It actually works quite nicely. Although I like the cut, the shoe just has too much red for my liking. Perhaps a more subtle version will catch my eye in the near future.

Lamar Odom Returns To Staples Center In A Fresh Pair Of Air Jordans

Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade faced off for the final time last night in Los Angeles. And while Kobe was limited to only nine minutes, the game was very entertaining and came down to the last seconds. Lakers came out on top by the way if you didn’t already know.

In attendance at the game last night was a former NBA player that used to be a familiar face at Staples Center and played for both the Heat and the Lakers, Lamar Odom. After going through a rough patch in his life the last few months, Odom was spotted sitting court-side and was doing so rocking the Air Jordan 4 OG 89 White Cement.

While we’ll probably never see Odom step foot on the court again, it’s definitely a good thing to see him in good spirits. By the way, nice kicks Lamar!

One Of The Best Michael Jordan Pictures Ever Has Been Turned Into A Tattoo

Where do you draw the line in terms of being a fan of someone and being obsessed? Many of us buy shoes that belong to a certain player, that’s completely normal. Even jerseys or posters are the norm. But what level of dedication/fandom would warrant someone to get a tattoo of another person? Would you call that crossing the line?

That’s completely up to you to decide, but some fan recently got a tattoo of Michael Jordan, and it’s epic! Pictured above, the tattoo is of MJ’s free-throw line dunk from the 1988 NBA Slam Dunk Contest that is perhaps his most popular picture of all time. The work was done by tattoo artist Steve Butcher. You can even tell that MJ is wearing this same shoe in the tattoo that he did in the actual picture, the White Cement Air Jordan 3s.

What do you think? Would you get this permanently inked on your skin?

Jordan Brand Brings Back The Air Jordan 2 Low With A Bang


Jordan Brand is bringing back the Air Jordan 2 Low in a big way thanks to this weekend’s all-red colorway. The lifestyle aesthetic of all-red sneakers has been a go-to for quite some time now, and by adding a splash of Gym Red atop one of their lesser-known and revered retro models, the Jumpman has updated the Jordan 2 Low to be a relevant offering worthy of your attention heading into the weekend. If you can remember Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s “Legend of the Summer” exclusive from a few years back, then this Air Jodan 2 Low “Gym Red” should bring back memories of those exclusive PEs thanks to the shade and premium scale-like leather upper. All that’s missing is a touch of suede. Check out additional photos below and know that you can always find your pair early on eBay.

Joining alongside the AJ 2 Low Gym Red this weekend will be the remastered variation of the popular Air Jordan 12 in French Blue.

This time depicting the silhouette in a matching basketball court to complement its aesthetic, the sneaker’s defining hue is essentially prominent on the forefoot, outsole and rear portion to perfectly coordinate with the ground. Pristine white covers the majority of its premium tumbled leather upper, while hits of grey and silver round out the theme.

In case you were wondering, full family sizes will be available at JB and Nike retailers on April 2nd, with its original listing set at $190, followed by GS $140, PS $80, TD $60 and an Infant Gift Pack at $50 respectively.

Still On Top: Michael Jordan Is The Richest Athlete In The World

Even though His Airness retired for good way back in 2003, Michael Jordan is still as powerful and influential as ever. Oh yeah and he’s also filthy rich!

According to a new report by Forbes, Michael Jordan is the richest athlete in the world. In 2015 Michael Jordan made $110 million and in 2016 he’s expected to make “at least $30 million more than any other athlete in the world, active or retired.” Forbes also reported that Jordan right now is the most marketable person in the U.S. ahead of Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Bill Gates and every other celebrity you can name.

?Michael Jordan is defined by what he did in basketball and his NBA performance is the benchmark to which other great players are measured,? says Repucom executive Peter Laatz. ?He has stayed relevant and in the news more than a decade after retirement through other things like the Jordan brand, his ownership of the Charlotte Hornets and the viral ?Crying Jordan? meme.?

The majority of his earning comes from Jordan Brand which hit $3 billion in sales last year in the U.S. with a market share of 64% in basketball as well as being the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets NBA franchise.

Heres An Up-Close Look At The Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar

Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 1 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 2 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 3 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 4 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 5 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 6 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 7 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 8 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 9 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 10 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 11 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 12 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 13 Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar 14

Later this Summer we’ll be seeing another new colorway of the Air Jordan 5 Low arrive at retailers. After seeing the blue and orange pair inspired by the Cavaliers release this past Monday, this next colorway takes inspiration from a whole different sport.

This colorway of the Air Jordan 5 is inspired by one of the youngest and best soccer players in the world at the moment, Neymar. The Brazilian soccer star is only 24 years old and is already one of the most recognizable faces in the sport. His colorway of the Air Jordan 5 consists of a grey cement upper that features black speckling all throughout. As you can see in the images the entire upper of the shoe is also 3M. In addition to the flashy 3M upper we also see Infrared detailing on the outsole, the inside of the tongue, and the ?10? and ?23? branding on each of the ankles that represent Neymar and Michael Jordan?s numbers respectively. The rest of the shoe including the tongue, laces, inner liner, eyelets, midsole and side panel mesh netting are all done in black. Capping things off is an icy blue translucent outsole.

There is no exact release date yet but this Air Jordan 5 is expected to release in June 2016. Stay updated with this release by bookmarking our Air Jordan 5 Low Neymar launch page for the latest images and news.

Author’s Take

The only pretty cool thing about this colorway is the full 3M upper. Other than that I don?t expect this colorway to sell very well.

Take A Look At This True Blue Sample Colorway Of The Air Jordan 3LAB5

Air Jordan 3LAB5 Sample 1 Air Jordan 3LAB5 Sample 2 Air Jordan 3LAB5 Sample 3 Air Jordan 3LAB5 Sample 4 Air Jordan 3LAB5 Sample 5

Back in 2013 we saw the release of the Air Jordan 3LAB5. Part of the Elements series, this new hybrid sneaker takes components from the Air Jordan 3 (elephant print) and the Air Jordan 5 (the silhouette) and fuses them together. Even though the shoe released in a handful of different colorways it receive mixed reviews from sneakerheads.

Today we show you a sample colorway of the mash-up silhouette that never made it to retailers. This colorway features a True Blue upper with Black elephant print all throughout the upper and Cement Grey on the midsole, inner liner and the Jumpman on the tongue. The final touch of color comes courtesy of Fire Red on the lace lock and the Jumpman on the translucent outsole.

What are your thoughts on this colorway of the Air Jordan 3LAB5? Do you like it better than some of the colorways that did release at retail? Let us know down below and if you’re interested in this pair it’s a size 9 and can be purchased from Index Portland for $3,500.

Author’s Take

There’s such thing as too much blue or maybe just the wrong shade of blue. If this looked more like the royal blue from the Air Jordan 5 Low that released this week they would have been better. Regardless I don’t think I would have bought a pair.

The Jordan Galaxy Rocks The All-White Look

Jordan Galaxy  1 Jordan Galaxy  2 Jordan Galaxy  3 Jordan Galaxy  4 Jordan Galaxy  5 Jordan Galaxy  6 Jordan Galaxy  7 Jordan Galaxy  8 Jordan Galaxy  9 Jordan Galaxy  10

A new Jordan Galaxy has been spotted, and this pair appears to be the complete opposite of the pair we went over yesterday. Opting to go with an all-white upper made out of two different materials, let’s take a look at this readily available colorway from Jordan Brand‘s latest lifestyle offering.

The shoe comes constructed out of an upper made out of white full-grain leather used on the lateral side and white nylon mesh used on the medial side. Adding to the tonal look of the shoe are the rope laces, heel pull tab and the embossed Jumpman logo on the heel. A small gum colored Jumpman is placed on the tag attached to the collar, while the gum bottom outsole give the clean looking shoe a classic look. Available now, pick up your very own pair for $135.

This one is cool too, but there’s no doubt that I’m liking the black/gum pair better.

Author’s Take

There was only a couple o colorways of the Westbrook 0 that I considered buying since i didn’t really like it. Now that the shoe has been transformed into a low top it kind of has a Vans look to me. I don’t see myself buying a a certain colorway makes me change my mind.
