New Images of Spike Lees Air Jordan 6 Gold Oscars PE

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

Remember the gold Air Jordan 6 that was gifted to Spike Lee back in November that was inspired by the Oscars? Well today we get a much better and detailed look at the shoe.

According to Spike Lee there was only one pair of existence, so either Spike Lee wasn’t aware that there’s more pairs or he let someone borrow his pair to take these new shots of them. This Air Jordan 6 features a gold leafed upper with a translucent tongue, outsole and heel tabs. As you can see in the photo the see-through tongue and outsole have also been hit with gold speckling to go along with the ?Oscars? theme.

What are your thoughts on the Air Jordan 6 Gold Oscars PE now that you have a better look at them?

Author’s Take

Definitely a nice colorway of the Air Jordan 6 but this is more of a collector’s piece to me that you display on your shelf like a trophy and not something you wear on your feet.

The First Ever Air Jordan 11 Mid For Girls Will Release At The End Of The Year

The Jordan Brand holiday season is going to be lit and it’s barely February. With Jordan Brand already announcing the return of the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam as well as the Air Jordan 3 True Blue OG, there’s no denying that Jordan Brand is playing no games this holiday season. Want more? Add in the first ever girls-exclusive Air Jordan 11 Mid to the calendar.

J23app just let it be known that the first ever girls-only Air Jordan 11 Mid will be releasing in December. Sure, we’ve seen girl colorways on the Air Jordan 11 Low, but never on a mid. No word on what the colorway will be on the shoe, but here’s to hoping that it’s a color that the men can also wear. Keep it locked for more updates regarding this future release.

Looking forward to see what Jordan Brand has for the ladies. I just hope it’s not a pink colorway.

Jordan Brand To Release First Girls-Only Air Jordan 11 Mid In December

2016 is shaping up to be a great year for Air Jordan purists because several grail-level Jordan Retros have already or are slated to hit stores over the next ten months. You already know about the Space Jams and True Blue 3s, but Jordan Brand’s got an additional treat just for the new girls demographic of MJ fanatics in the form of the ever-popular Air Jordan 11 Mid. The colorway has not been revealed, but we expect some softer tones or perhaps a release that aligns with its most well-known female athlete, Maya Moore.

Chris Paul And Allyson Felix Bring Out Jordan Heaters To Bowl In

Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 1 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 2 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 3 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 4 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 5 Chris Paul & Allyson Felix 6

I don’t know about you, but every time I go bowling, the bowling alley makes me tak off my shoes and wear some of their generic three-toned bowling shoes. I guess Chris Paul and Allyson Felix don’t necessarily have to follow that rule as they were recently spotted wear some Jordam Brand heaters during a bowling event.

During yesterday’s CP3 PBA Celebrity Invitational hosted by Chris Paul, he along with Allison Felix decided to bring out some pretty dope kicks that none us get to see on a daily basis. Paul opted to go with the Jordan CP3.IX Blue Suede reserved for only friends and family, while Allyson Felix made sure she broke necks as she chose to wear the elusive Air Jordan 5 Tokyo23. Yea, it’s safe to say that both of them killed it when it comes to the sneaker part of the game.

Author’s Take

I love the Friends and Family releases of the CP3.IX, and the Toky23 5s has to be one of the best colorways ever made on that model. Too clean.

Heres A Detailed Look At Spike Lees Air Jordan 6 Oscars PE

Spike Lee received the biggest honor in the film industry – an honorary Oscar award for his contributions to cinema, and Jordan Brand was right there with a pair of shoes worthy of the achievement. Spike first revealed these golden Air Jordan 6 gems on his Instagram and was even later spotted wearing them at certain events – most recently sitting courtside throughout the scheduled events during NBA All-Star Weekend. One pair has managed to reach the hands of The Collection Miami, who offers up a nice detailed look at this pristine pair. Peep the photos just below.

Sneaker Artist, Shannon Favia Uses Her Air Jordans As Her Canvas

SHANNON FAVIA 1 SHANNON FAVIA 2 SHANNON FAVIA 3 SHANNON FAVIA 4

Shannon Favia is an artist known for her pop art sneaker paintings. Her unique style is easily recognized every time you see it on a canvas. She’s been able to share her artwork with the world and has even managed to share it with NBA stars such as Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler. For her latest creation, she’s trying something new. Instead of doing a painting of a sneaker, she actually painted on her sneakers. The end result is another Shannon Favia classic!

Shannon Favia let it be known that she only owns one pair of Air Jordans. With that being the case, she decided to give her only pair a of one-of-a-kind look! Using the same style she’s known to utilize on her paintings, Favia went to work on her Air Jordan 1s covering the sneakers in an array of colors in a freestyle manner that helped put her on the map. Check out the images of the custom Air Jordan 1 above and let us know what you think.

#TheGamePlan By Champs Sports: Feel The Excellence Of The Air Jordan 12 The Master Collection

Black, white and gold. These are the colors of excellence. They symbolize winning at the highest level and a mastery of a craft that many strive for, but few ever achieve. Michael Jordan is The Master of the court and in this edition of The Game Plan by Champs Sports, we take a look at his latest retro release, the Air Jordan 12 The Master. Featuring a rich black leather upper and mudguard mixed with white and gold accents, the shoe pays homage to an Air Jordan 12 poster that features Jordan doing what he does best.

Air Jordan 12 Flu Game (2016)

Release Date: May 28, 2016
Price: $190

The popular black and red colorway of the Air Jordan 12 will be releasing on May 28, 2016. This colorway has been dubbed Flu Game due to the time that MJ wore them during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz. Michael put up 38 points and lead his team to a victory while suffering ?flu-like symptoms.? There’s no word yet on whether they’ll be composed of leather or nubuck yet, but since Jordan Brand is continuing their remastered initiative we expect them to be done in leather like the original.

Jordan Brand Gives The People What They Want This Holiday Season For A Price

One way or another I’m going to end 2016 crossing two retros I’ve waited a long time for off my list. On Black Friday, the Black/Cement True Blue Air Jordan 3 will have sneakerheads camping out outside of malls across America as the beloved classic returns with the much-desired “Nike Air” branding. Meanwhile, our annual Christmas Air Jordan 11 is going to be the big one as the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam has now been confirmed to be making a comeback right on time for its 20th anniversary. Needless to say if things fall into place, 2016 is going to be 30th anniversary of Jordan Brand that we should have gotten in 2015.

But at what cost? Jordan Brand increased production, quality and price of retros across the board in 2015, using classics like the Air Jordan 8 Aqua, obscure gems like the Air Jordan 6 Maroon and a new Air Jordan 11 colorway as test cases for what the market will support. The results were clear; people will buy retros at a higher price, but Jordan Brand can’t get away with releasing just any colorway they can crap out anymore if they want immediate sell-outs like the halcyon days of 2010 through 2014. Drop the right colorway, like the Air Jordan 4 White/Cement and give it “Nike Air” and you will move units in the hundreds of thousands, possibly millions. Meanwhile, a Maroon 6 will languish in stores waiting for somebody to inevitably bite or for a price drop to happen. So Jordan Brand is going for the sure sure things this holiday season.

Right now, general release retros are going for $190 with “Nike Air” branding apparently worth a $30 premium. Assuming things don’t change between now and the Holidays, that’s $220 for the Air Jordan 3 True Blue and that doesn’t even include taxes. As for the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam, expect to pay a little bit more than the $220 you did for last year’s Air Jordan 11 72-10, which went up from 2014’s Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue that was priced at $200, which was an increase from the $185 price tag of 2013’s Air Jordan 11 Gamma Blue. See the trend? So it’s possible you could be looking at $240 or maybe $250 even for the Space Jams before taxes. That’s nearly $500 for two retros and you have to “work” twice as hard to get them and they won’t come in a special box like a retro pack would. And we’re all going to buy them because we’re suckers fans. It’s the price we pay to stay in this sneaker game. Save for this weekend’s Air Jordan 12 The Master and the Flu Game 12s, I can see myself not really buying too many kicks between now and Thanksgiving just to both save up money (not really a problem) and patience (little problem), energy (actual problem) and good will to connects (biggest problem).

Yay?
Yay?

While I am glad that the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam is returning, there’s still the issue of the Air Jordan 3 making an all-too-soon comeback. If you’ll recall, Jordan Brand’s David Schechter said towards the end of 2014 that the 3 would be “going back in the vault.” In my mind, going back in the vault means that we won’t be seeing a new retail release for at least a minimum of five years. But then we started hearing rumors of an Air Jordan 3 and Air Jordan 8 pack that pays homage to Kobe Bryant’s career which turned out to be true, although the talk of that pack eventually dropping at retail hasn’t slowed down. There was the Air Jordan 3 Black/Cement at the Air Jordan XXX launch that looked way too new and clean to be the 2001 retro. And now word of the True Blue making a return is all but confirmed with the only thing missing is a leaked sample. Not that we’re saying the Jumpman is being a little disingenuous when they claim something is going away for a while, but maybe their definition of “going back in the vault” could use a little clarity.

Needless to say, this Holiday season is going to be a very busy time for sneakerheads. Actually, we always say that, but this one might top all of the previous seasons that came before. Two certified classics dropping in the same year? You could say that 2011’s Air Jordan 3 Black/Cement and Air Jordan 11 Concord combo or 2012’s Air Jordan 4 Playoffs and Air Jordan 11 Playoffs two-fer were better, but their Black Friday releases didn’t have “Nike Air” branding. The True Blue will more than likely have it. But what if it’s not the True Blue 3s that we have to worry about? What if it’s something else we weren’t expecting at all?

Welp, what could that mean? Is that the “price” we’re going to pay this time around?

Air Jordan 11 Space Jam 20th Anniversary (2016)

Sound the common sense alarm, Jordan Brand might actually be giving the people what they want this holiday season. That’s right, the annual Christmas release that sets the world on fire (except maybe last year) could quite possibly be the much beloved Air Jordan 11 Space Jam. The release would be right on schedule too as the eponymous movie is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary this year as well. Combine that with Jordan Brand’s willingness to get Warner Bros. and Bugs Bunny back on board, and it just sounds right.

Now that the shoe has been confirmed as this year’s Holiday Air Jordan 11 release, we can only hope that this purported pair has received the remastered treatment on the level of the award-winning Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard or Air Jordan 6 Maroon (and that it has “45” on the heel).

So now we have 12 months or so to eagerly wait the return of the Air Jordan 11 Space Jam. If we had to take a guess, the release date would either be on December 17 or if they want to cut it real close to Christmas, Jordan Brand could set it for December 24. Now a potential wild card date could also be November 15, which was the original release date of the movie.

Air Jordan 11 Space Jam Releasing December 2016

It’s only February, but better get your Holiday season spending in order because Jordan Brand has not one, but two must-have Retro releases in the works this winter. Along with the Air Jordan 3 “True Blue” for Black Friday, Jordan Brand will release the Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” this December. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that 2016 is the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam, and we already gave you a heads up on it in our 2016 Predictions from early January. You can bet pricing will be similar, or perhaps higher than, the Air Jordan 11 “72-10” which was priced at $220. Your thoughts on the Space Jams being confirmed for December? Let us know in the comments below.
