Air Jordan Retro VII (7) White Orion Blue Infrared New Detailed Pics

The retro 7 will make it's return yet again in 2011 sometime early spring. These retro 7's are not an original color but yet a retro+ color that Jordan Brand will give to the street. We can expect the shoe to retail for about $150 once they release. From these early pictures the leather is looking a little stiff with very little flexibility. We will have the sneakers soon enough to do a review on but we are thinking the material are the same used on the "For the love of the game" 7 that released this past summer. Time will tell.....keep it locked!

New Lebron 8 Colors (DJ Clark Kent Personal Pair)

Nine times out of ten you can always count on the homie Clark Kent to preview the madness and keep the internetz buzzing. These are recent shots from Clarks twitter post over the past few days with a few little gems amongst many that sit in his possession. The streets are dubbing the first joints "Summit Lake Hornets" and the second picture "Entourage." No official word yet on if either of these kicks will release to the streets but we can now sit in awe at what we have posted. Keep it locked here once we get more info!

adidas Pro Model 2010 City Pack

The adidas Pro Model 2010 City Pack features four colorways of the Pro Model 2010 inspired by four major cities/team including a colorway for Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, and Orlando. Each of the colorways features the skylines from the City along with the colors of the Basketball team they rep. Look for some of your favorite NBA players to already start rocking these in a city near you! These are now available at select Adidas accounts.


The Lebron 8 is seriously becoming one of our favorite shoes for 2010-2011. Just the whole concept that Jason P. and team came up with having the shoe being broken down into different versions in genius in our opinion. The White/Black/Red pictures below are scheduled to hit sometime in January and retail will still be for $160. This is the second version of the Lebron 8 that will hit retail just as the "Christmas Editions" did in Dec. We look forward to these coming in as well and will definitely put up those comparison pictures once in our possession.

Air Jordan 2011 New Detailed Pic

We still are reserving our judgement till we have our hands on a pair within the up incoming weeks. Take a look a this detailed shot that has been floating around on the web for the last few days. Start to definitely see where the premium leather falls on this shoe. While these shoe pictures could still very well be samples, it still looks as if this is the silhouette that Jordan Brand is deciding to run with for the new year. Comment below.....

Dwyane Wade Previews the Jordan 2011

If you all were able to catch the Heat vs Lakers game on Christmas day you would have seen Miami own D.Wade rocking the new Jordan 2011 in red/white colorway. Details on the sneaker in regards to price and release date still remains unknown at this point. Funny thing is that just before half time D.Wade switched up and through the 2010's back on instead. Rumors say that he normally does that anyway during the game which is fine, but we found it pretty interesting.

Pre-game D.Wade was rocking the Blk/Wht color in the 2011 that we showed you a few weeks back. We also heard reports that day that he would possibly be rocking the Air Jordan Retro 3's in the blk/cement colorway but that did not go down. Take a look at the pictures below and let us know your thoughts on the appears that there is not much change from the pictures that have been leaked on the web.

Air Jordan V – Chris Paul Hornets Away PE

Now before you get too excited let me warn you all that these will NOT HIT THE STREETZ! LOL. These player exclusive 5's were date back in 2006 just before Jordan Brand launched CP3 sneaker line under the brand. The shoes have popped back on ebay and we are assuming the seller is trying to cash in. The dope part about these is from the low res pictures the outsole seems to still remain icy. Normally even if the shoe sits deadstock you sometimes see yellowing start to occur in certain areas, but not these. Good luck to anybody that is able to win the bid on them...we know the ticket is going to be serious on them.

Rice Highschool in New York will be hooping in the Kobe VI this season in a pretty unique color scheme. Over the last few years they always get broken off with the exclusive colorways for the masses. Expect these to hit retailers (More than likely House of Hoops) sometime early 2011. Retail will still be set at $130. Keep it locked once we get more info on the actual release date.

Jordan Brand Officially Unveils the CP3.IV

So what appears to take cues from the Jordan 22 with that outsole pattern, Jordan Brand officially unveiled the CP3 IV. Take a look at what the brand has to say about it's all star players 4th shoe.




All-Star point guard Chris Paul today, with the Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc., unveiled Paul’s fourth signature performance basketball shoe, the Jordan CP3.IV. Inspired by the quickness that is displayed by Paul on a nightly basis, the Jordan CP3.IV combines performance innovation with a sleek design resulting in a state-of-the art basketball shoe.

Paul was on-hand at New Orleans Arena to introduce the Jordan CP3.IV to a select group of national media at an event that shed light on the floor general’s lightning fast athleticism and strong basketball fundamental skills.

“The Jordan CP3.IV is an extension of my ability to be quick on-court, yet under control. The shoe not only allows me to elevate my game through a variety of performance benefits, but also reflects a special personal heritage and character qualities found in a winner – on and off the court,” said Paul.

A perennial MVP contender, Paul worked with Jordan Brand footwear designers to develop an intelligent basketball performance shoe that allows him to continue to excel both offensively and defensively. The JORDAN CP3.IV features the innovative midsole cushioning system called Podulon (pronounced PAHD-ju-lahn), which was featured in the previous JORDAN CP.3 III installment. As such, the JORDAN CP3.IV further builds on this platform by adding more performance features and technical elements, including lightweight synthetics for increased breathability and flex grooves for dynamic cutting and stopping.

Podulon was developed as an evolution to the Independent Podular Suspension system that was a cutting-edge feature of the AIR JORDAN XX. Podulon system’s breakthrough lies in the engineered shape of Cushlon foam that, when strategically placed under the forefoot area receiving high impact, provides cushioning exactly where needed without compromising the integrity of the shoe. Cushlon foam’s lifespan is long, so the Podulon technology is meant to sustain comfort and responsiveness.

Special design details are incorporated into the JORDAN CP3.IV that makes the shoe unique to Paul. The external heel graphic honors his grandfather, while the asymmetrical collar is modeled after Paul’s favorite AIR JORDAN, the AIR JORDAN XIII Low. In addition, the star graphic on the sockliner represents Paul’s attributes of quickness, heart, faith, family, leadership and community.

A special limited-edition of the JORDAN CP3.IV launched in select retailers on Monday, December 13, 2010. The JORDAN CP3.IV will launch nationwide on Saturday, January 1, 2011 for a suggested retail price of $118. Additionally, a Black-Orion Blue-Varsity Puple and White/Black-Orion Blue colorways will release nationwide in February 2011, with a fourth colorway White/Sunstone-Black releasing in March 2011.

Air Jordan 2011 First Look

We already know what you are thinking....what the hell kind of team shoe is this. LOL. Well, Jordan Brand is slimming down the overall aesthetics of next years Jordan's in line shoe. Now keep in mind that these are not the official productions pictures but the final version might not be too far off from this. Jordan Brand should be officially be announcing the breakdown of the technology side of the 2011 soon. The pictures do show what appears to be an interchangeable Zoom Air and Max Air insole which might be pretty interesting. Keep in mind that Jordan Brand has always and will be performance first before the fashion side of things. We will keep you posted once we get more info. Thoughts on these early pics?
