Air Jordan 18 Returns in OG Wizards Tones Next Weekend

The Air Jordan 18 Black/Royal was an event for anyone old enough to be into sneakers when they released in 2003.

Worn by Michael Jordan during his final season in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, the AJ18 was as smooth and rich as Money himself. Styled in suede — only the black pair — a brush came with each set of shoes to keep them crispy clean after battle.

While the OG White/Royal returned earlier this year in small doses to but to fast sales, we’re finally getting a Black/Blue retro for the first time ever on October 11th.

Adjusted for inflation (eye-roll), the new pair will cost $ 225 as opposed to the $ 175 they first retailed for. Still, dope to have these back. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for updated imagery.

Danny Ainge Wants A Drop Of Terry Rozer’s PUMA ‘Drip’

Taking full advantage of the NBA’s removal of color restrictions on sneakers, Celtics guard Terry Rozier played in the bright “Red Blast” iteration of the PUMA Clyde Court Disrupt in Boston’s 115-112 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

For Rozier, wearing such bright shoes was just all part of his “drip.” Plus Rozier could care less if you don’t like his kicks because he’s going to keep doing what he wants to do.

“I’m trying to have some drip, come out with some drip — mainly for the young kids,” Rozier told reporters on Monday. “Nike and adidas are everywhere but being different is something that I take pride in. Puma’s the new wave. You can get on the train or get lost. It don’t really matter to me. It don’t help me out or nothing. I’m gonna still come through with the drip regardless”

While he may have just been talking confidently, Rozier actually does seem to be inspiring others to get in on the PUMA wave as Celtics general manager Danny Ainge tweeted at the reserve guard asking if he could get just one drop of his drip. Quite amused by Ainge’s request, Rozier hilariously told the general manager that he will hook him up with some PUMA golf gear.

For comedic purposes, let’s hope Rozier actually honors Ainge’s request because seeing the Celtics general manager in some brightly colored PUMA sneakers would simply be amusing.

The NBA Is Going To Ban Kanye’s Reflective Adidas Yeezy Basketball Shoe

Though he’s been teasing his finally finalized “YZY BSKTBL” shoe online over the past month, there may be an unexpected roadblock ahead for Kanye West’s dream of seeing his debut hoop shoe making its way to a NBA game.

According to our own Nick DePaula, the NBA doesn’t plan to approve the Adidas sneaker for in-game use, with the bright 3M reflective heel panel serving as the primary concern.

The league has long had a rule against any “distracting” parts on sneakers, like overly bright patent leathers, chrome pieces that may also chip, or shiny 3M panels like what’s been spotted on a sample of the upcoming Yeezy.

Though DePaula mentions that alternate non-3M versions of Kanye’s basketball model would likely be approved, with the season officially kicking off in a matter of weeks, we’ll have to stay tuned for additional updates on which looks the league will plan to allow.

Kim Kardashian Reveals Kanye’s New Yandhi Release Date: ‘It Is Worth The Wait’

Among the many wild headlines that Kanye West managed to generate over the weekend — ones about MAGA hats and boxy costumes, for example — there were none about the release of his ninth studio album, Yandhi. That’s because, as you probably noticed, the project never materialized, despite Ye announcing last week that it would drop the night of his appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Ever the efficient wife/spokesperson, Kim Kardashian West set the record straight on Monday afternoon (October 1) by revealing the album’s new release date: November 23, a.k.a. Black Friday. “TRUST ME it is worth the wait,” she tweeted, followed by a string of fervent emojis.

Kanye later confirmed the date in an interview with TMZ on Monday, during which he also revealed his plan to finish recording the album in Africa. Describing Yandhi, Kanye said, “I started incorporating sounds that you never heard before and pushing and having concepts that people don’t talk about. … It’s just a full Ye album and those five albums I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation and now the alien Ye is fully back in mode.”

The Chicago MC first teased Yandhi last month with a Yeezus-esque piece of artwork. On September 27, he tweeted, “We’re releasing Yandhi Saturday night,” adding, “We know it will come in number 2 to my brother Lil Wayne and that’s lovely. … The universe needs Ye and Wayne music at the same time.”

This will be Kanye’s third album this year, following the solo Ye and his collaboration with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts. Besides those projects, he also produced records for Nas, Pusha T, and Teyana Taylor. It’s clearly been a productive year for Kanye, but given his pro-Trump agenda and mounting backlash, maybe it’s good that Yandhi is being pushed to a time when we can all listen while simultaneously stress-eating leftover turkey and pie.

A Detailed Look At The “Tech Pack” Air Jordan 33

Previewed earlier this month at Jordan Brand’s grand Los Angeles unveil of the latest game shoe, the new Air Jordan 33 will be releasing in a handful of fresh colorways new to the line. While the 31 and 32 before it drafted heavily off of their thirty-year prior predecessors, the team behind the shoe had different plans in store for the 33.

“We really wanted to look beyond, ‘This was the 1, the 2 and the 3,’” reveals designer Tate Kuerbis. “We wanted to look beyond and into the future.”

With a new innovative FastFit laceless lockdown system and a more refined and sharp approach to design, the 33 thankfully takes the brand to a more technical place, earning it a strong reaction since being unveiled. Rather than launch in an expected cement-inspired look hearkening back to the late 1980s, the 33 will be releasing later this fall in what’s been dubbed a “Tech Pack”-informed edition.

The term is short for the detailed pack of technical blueprints for a shoe that designers will compile for their factory counterparts to develop and produce a shoe — hues of red, yellow and blue help to accent a clean black and white contrasting base.

Check out the “Tech Pack” Air Jordan 33 below in detail, and let us know your thoughts on Twitter.

Joey Hamilton Gives Tie Dye Update To Travis Scott Nike Air Force 1

words // Nick DePaula: 

When the Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low launched earlier this August, the multiple Swoosh options and open canvas canvas upper immediately fueled customizers to try their hand at adding their own updates atop the iconic model.

Portland-based creative Joey Hamilton recently worked up a custom trio of his own, coming up with green, orange and purple-based tie dye takes on the AF1, each framed by the existing sail hued piping lines of the upper.

Check out the updates in detail below, with mismatched Swooshes also accenting the upper. You can keep up with Joey’s work on his @JoeyHamilton and @Prime.Experiments Instagram pages.

 

Air Jordan 11 Low “Snakeskin” OG Returns Next Summer

Few sneakers spark a bond with summer quite like the Air Jordan 11 Low. Originally released back in 2001, the shoe may have never been worn by Michael Jordan on-court yet they were donned by just about everyone else off of it. Next summer, one of the original colorways is set to return for the first time in over 17 years.

While several Air Jordan 11 Low “Snakeskin” styles have retroed since the shoe first released just past the turn of the century, the long-beloved navy iteration is the lone pair that hasn’t. But if rumors are to be believed, next summer that will all change.

According to several reports, the navy pair is set to drop next April. Images of the 2019 iteration have not yet been revealed. Stay tuned for additional details.

Lil Wayne Tells The Full Story Of His Childhood Suicide Attempt On Tha Carter V

Lil Wayne is back and more honest than ever on his long-awaited new album, Tha Carter V, which dropped on Friday (September 28), the day after the rapper’s 36th birthday.

After listening to 22 tracks spanning over 80 minutes, fans arrive at the album’s outro, “Let It All Work Out,” which finds Wayne opening up about the time he sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound when he was just 12 years old. In the past, he’s claimed that the shooting was merely an accident, but his verse on Solange’s 2016 track “Mad” sparkled speculation that it was actually a suicide attempt. On that song, he rapped, “And when I attempted suicide, I didn’t die / I remember how mad I was on that day / Man, you gotta let it go before it get up in the way.”

Wayne confirms the speculation toward the end of “Let It All Work Out” — which samples Sampha’s “Indecision” — by detailing what happened during the shooting: “I aimed where my heart was pounding / I shot it, and I woke up with blood all around me / It’s mine, I didn’t die, but as I was dying / God came to my side and we talked about it / He sold me another life and he made a prophet.”

Wayne’s mother, Jacida Carter, also addressed her son’s suicide attempt on Tha Carter V‘s penultimate track, “Used 2.” In a spoken outro, she said, “I still don’t know today. Was he playing with the gun or was it an accident? I be wanting to ask him but I never asked him after all these years. … I never really found out about what really happened with him and that shooting.”

According to a recent Billboard cover story, Wayne shot himself in the chest at age 12 after his mother forbade him from rapping. In the same interview, Young Money president Mack Maine explained Wayne’s decision to finally tell the full story of what happened that day. “He just told me one day that he was ready to address it now,” Maine said. “Just being an adult, reaching a level of maturity and comfort where it’s like, ‘I want to talk about this because I know a lot of people out here might be going through that.’”
