When it comes to making a color title "pop" Nike has to take it hands down every time! HA. These Air Max 1's are a honeycomb yellow with "blue spark" outsole. The upper is constructed of a canvas and suede mix sitting on a all white outsole. These are available at select Nike accounts now. Very dope for spring/summer line up.

So did you cop your Orion Blue Jordan 7's this past Sat? Or are you waiting for more 7 madness in the next few weeks? We personally decided to past on these dude to the yellow midsole on the majority of the pairs that got released here in the D. Don't get us wrong, we were actually impressed by the color itself once we saw it in person but the quality of where the midsole should be white had a tint of yellow instead. We are normally use to seeing some quality control issues on Jordan's but these we have to say were quite bad. For those of you that did grab a pair how do yours look? Send us pics to SoleSurvivorDetroit@gmail.com and let us know!

So we saw the Jordan Retro 2 release last year in Oct with it's own version of the candy pack...now we see the comfort 10 get it's shine. Releasing on April 9th just in time for Easter, Jordan will release all 3 colors to the public. What are your thoughts on the continued "candy pack" idea? It seems like to us they release this type of concept either on or near a holiday where candy seem to be involved. HA. Let us know what you think!
We kept trying to tell people that the Kobe 6 is killing it right when it comes to basketball sneakers. This color inspiration was taken from the Hornets-esque colorways but not technically the "draft day" sneaker as some would put it. The sneaker will release on May 26th for $130. Just yet another color to add to the Kobe 6 arsenal. Thoughts?

We showed you some other shots of the cardinal 7 the other day but now Jordan Brand announced June 18th as it's release date for these bad boys. Again, retail will be about $150 for these as well. June is heating up to be yet another hot month.
It's no secret where you can get these super early and pay almost double the price. For those of you that are like us and will want to only pay retail, June 4th is the official date for these beauties. Retail will be $150 and will come in the same cement print box just like the 3 release earlier this year. Keep in mind that we have not seen the retro hit the US since 2001. Are you grabbing a pair?
So if you have been keeping up to speed with us you should know that these sought after foams released today. Retail is $200 and they will go quick. Try and head on over to Nike.com or Eastbay.com to scoop your pair. Hit us up and let us know if you were able to grab a pair....or 2.

All we are going to say is...don't get your hopes up for these unless you are on that friends and family connect with these. If you are paying attention at all to the NCAA March Madness going on this month you should see these colors of the 2011 on court. Take a look at some shots that are floating around on the internetz for all the Jordan heads to gawk over.

Bring back some old school heat in a new colorway from it's original that we are used to seeing is the Wolf/Grey/white/red. These kicks will hit footlocker locations within the next 30 days and be available for online sales as well. If you are a fan of the Barkley's you can't let this one slip out of your collection.
So we all have seen some pretty crazy things Nike has done with the blazer in the past. Now, we get hit with this exclusive premium obsidian leather blazer with an safety color orange zipper on the side. Add the obsidian blue wax laces and you have one quality built sneaker. Again, these will only be released at Nike tier zero accounts come sometime this spring. Start making some phone calls if you are diggin em.
Had enough "detailed" images yet? Sure you haven't! The retro 7 keeps popping up on the net like nobody's business and we will keep posting em till the release date. LOL. These will be set to release towards the end of April for around $150. If you missed out on the last drop with these a few years back, now will be your time to grab em again. You obviously know where you can pay over retail for them now if you just have to get em. Stay tuned.

You can pretty much say "Game Over" for us over here @SSD if these foamposite 1's hit the streets. Nike knows exactly what to do when they leak images like the ones taken from RMK store overseas. The all black upper with electric green outsole and accents hits definitely make for a good looking shoe. No word yet at all if these will be considered a "Quickstrike" release or GR...stay tuned either way and we will let you know.
Taking a little from our last post around "simple" sneakers, it looks as if Jordan Brand is following right along. The Sky High will now see a low top version of the shoe next month sometime on April for around $75. Canvas upper followed by a leather toe cap makes for a pretty clean looking causal kicker. Add the classic Jumpman logo on near the heel area to make sure people don't get it twisted. Thoughts around the Shy High low?
Start to look for something more simpler in life as some sneaker heads would put it. After the crazy release of the Nike Toki they decided to stick with the "boat" shoe idea that will hit accounts soon. All canvas upper with simple colors like red, black, with white outsole is perfect for those who want something to lounge in. Retail should not be over $65 for these.
On March 26th for $150 you can own a pair of the retro 7's in this Jordan Brand newly released color. This will be one of the first retro 7's to release this year with plenty more to come. What are your thoughts around the new color added to and OG shoe?
So just in case you don't know too much of the background history behind this "Liberty Dunk" SSD is going to keep you up to speed. The obvious thing about this shoe is the color and the statue of liberty tag near the tongue. What is not so obvious is the fact that the shoes carries what Nike calls "distress leather." As you wear or either skate in these sneakers the green leather starts to turn bronze... this is a cool concept taken from the actual statue of liberty showing off it's age yet still beauty. Peep the video below by skate shop Premier in Michigan.

Looks like April is gearing up yet again to be another crazy month for sneakers!! The Jordan 2011 seems to be getting a ton of attention with all the dope marketing that they are focusing on. On April 2nd for $170 Jordan Brand will release the "Blackout" patent leather version in the 2011. Take a look below at some up close shots that hit the web not too long ago. Would you rock this colorway instead of the others? Are you diggin the fact that is has patent leather?
Fresh off of a few CMFT 11/12 releases we now take a different approach with Jordan on it's CMFT 13's in black/red. April 9th is the expected release date and the shoes will retail for about $115. What are your thoughts on these compared to the 11 and 12's the brand has brought out?
