Nike Air Max LeBron VII Michael Jordan

We showed you some sample pictures a few days ago from Ty @Leaders. Pictures now of the official "non sample" Lebrons have been floating around. Keep in mind these will NOT release to the public. Check out the official versions of these! Gotta love the Jordan 11 inspiration on these. The thing that intrigued us the most was the fabric material that lays over the flywire on the side panel of the shoe. On top of the black premium leather that also surrounds the shoe, it looks amazingly comfortable!

Air Jordan 1 + Air Jordan XX

The beat goes on!!! These Jordan retro 1's are inspired by the Jordan 20 with it's wht/red/blk color scheme and overall look/feel of the 20. Taking the laser print on the side panel and the luxury red sock liner this make comfortable retro 1. Expect these to be in stores on May 15th for $115.

Nike Air Penny III – Black – Metallic Silver | HOH Summer 2010

I never was a huge fan of the Penny 3 just because at the time it was not a comfortable shoe at all. This revised version which is said to only being released at the House of Hoops locations in April looks to be the exact opposite. Silver on this black is always an eye catcher. I still have a feeling that the elastic in the tongue area might be a problem with some people that plan on rocking them just cause and not for a hooping shoe. I knew cats back in the day that use to cut the elastic off, but that is another story. Lol. Thought?

Air Jordan 1 “Foamposite” – Sneak Peek

Shout out to the homie G-Roc @TheShoeGame for coming through with the Jordan Event with Jason Mayden where he previewed the Foamposite Jordan 1. These will be out sometime for Holiday 2010 release for Jordan Brand. We keep trying to tell you that the Jordan 1 saga is not going to stop. These appear to be the same exact foundational structure as the retro 1 but laced with the "foamposite" material. Don't know how well these will be received but time will tell. Thought?

Air Jordan IX (9) Premio – Bin 23 – New Images

Just when you thought the "quality" control issues were a problem Jordan Brand is sure changing the beat of the drum with these types of releases. Following after the Jordan Retro 2 we showed you all detailed pictures of last week, we now see a retro 9 done up in some premium materials. The sock liner appears to be the ones used on the 25th anniversary 9, white premium leather with a touch of the gold accents and red wax "bin23" stamp in red of the side. No official word yet on the release but sure we will see them hit shelves with a $150+ tag on em! Keep you posted once we get more solid info.

Air Jordan 25th Anniversary III (3) IV (4) IX (9) Available!

So this past week the "All White Everything" released at select retailers. So we guess it wasn't as "limited" as Jordan Brand was hyping it up to be. We stopped in a few stores over the weekend and they had plenty in stock! What we did capture is that the Jordan 9 was selling quicker than the 3 and the 4 which was a little surprising. You can still grab these on {Nike.com} if you were not able to grab the ones you wanted in your city!! Let us know what you all think of this release.

Nike Air Max 180 White Cyber Yellow

So this is one sneaker that seems to get overlooked due to so many of the other retros on the market at the momemnt...air max 95, air max 1, etc. This white/cyber yellow is a classic OG color way in a shoe that I believe most heads will sleep on this spring. If you want to truly add some OG flavor to the collection of kicks then the Air Max 180 is def the one to do it with. This color should be in NIke retailers by the end of the week!

Air Jordan VI White/Varsity Red – June 12th

Here it goes. We showed you a few different pictures of the Jordan 6 in Wht/Varsity Red and now we have the official release date....June 12th! The kicks will retail for the $150 price point as well. Get ready...going to be a hot summer!

Air Jordan Retro 1 KO (AJKO) In stores

AJKO is one of those truly old school shoes that was a special to the school collectors of the game. While trying to stay true to the vintage theme the AJKO features canvas/leather combo with the "vintage" treatment already done up on the midsole and outsole of the shoe. These should be in stores sometimes this week!
