Jordan Brand Signs Maya Moore to Team Jordan

Got hit with this info early this morning but just had a moment to post it up. Congrats to Maya Moore for getting signed to Jordan Brand and being one of the first female basketball players to join the brand! CLICK HERE TO READ HER RESPONSE!


Even thought the Lakers got swept from the playoffs does not mean that Kobe Bryant and team are taking any days off from his sneaker release. These are a switch up to the colors that were put out in the past by keep the color scheme real Call of Duty like! HA. Expect these khaki/olive color 6's to release one June 4th (same day as true blue 3's) for $130. We actually like what they did with this color mockup seeing as how we aren't huge fans of camo.

Nike Air Foamposite One Electric Green Release Reminder

Just a heads up that select House of Hoops locations are going to be releasing the black/electric green foamposite this Thursday May 19th. Retail will more than likely be $200 and word on the street is that quantities should be decent enough for them not to sell out in the first hour like past releases. With so many shoes coming out over the next few weeks are you thinking about dropping the cash or are you going to hold out for now?

ShoeZeum Tour ‘Golden Ticket’ Auctions on eBay

We decided to post this up because one it's going to a really great cause, and two...this is a perfect example of really taking the sneaker game to another level. If you don't already know by now Jordan Geller (Guy holding the dog) took years and years building up his very own sneaker paradise in a warehouse in San Diego. It's been dubbed the "ShoeZeum" because it's pretty much made of everything NIke including Jordan numbered series line up shoes, Nike SB, Runners, OG trainers, and the list goes on. The unique thing about his collection is that he has created these "themed displays" for almost every sneaker he owns and the displays flow right with the respective shoe.

This warehouse was recently visited by some of Nike higher ups like Nike CEO Mark Parker and design mastermind Tinker Hatfield just to name a few. Only a select few groups of people have been invited to visit the ShoeZeum until now. And now for the first time ever, you just might be able to do that. Sneakernews dubbed Jordan the "Willy Wonka" of the shoe game and from that idea five “golden tickets” have been produced granting entry to The ShoeZeum for the winner and a guest. First auction for the tickets went up on Ebay yesterday and all the proceeds will go to the LiveStrong foundation due to the fact that Jordan is pro Nike. The rest of the auction will go up throughout the week.

The five winners and their guests will be invited to enjoy a one of a kind private tour of The ShoeZeum at 7pm on May 21st, so if you have some change saved up you might want to get in on this once in a lifetime experience. Peep the video below and CLICK HERE to find out more info on the auction.

Air Jordan 2.0 aka AJ Retro 2 Max

Since then Jordan Brand officially has named the shoe AJ 2.0 and it will now release on June 4th for $160. This sneaker is taken mainly from the Jordan 2 with a retooled 360 midsole. If you weren't a fan of the 2 before maybe you might like it with this newly designed midsole, it's definitely got our attention. Keep you posted once we get these in hand.
