Jordan Brand Supports Black Lives Matter Movement with Air Jordan 1

Earlier today Jordan Brand’s Frank Cooker debuted a new Air Jordan 1 both powerful in its message and harmonious in its timing.

His Air Jordan 1 “Black Lives Matter” could very well be a custom or sample never meant to see the light of day at retail. Yet whatever they are, the black-on-black colorway sends a powerful message of unity and inclusion in a time that we need it most.

This, however, isn’t the first time Jordan Brand has created with inspiration by African-American culture. Their annual Black History Month collection is an ode to equal rights and equality. Given a potential release of this BLM Air Jordan 1, Jordan Brand would easily be the most woke sportswear company in the biz.

No release details for this Air Jordan 1 are known. Stay tuned as we hope to have more information soon.

adidas Y-3 Pure Boost “Triple Black” Drops This Summer

Even Yohji Yamamoto and his adidas Y-3 outfit are getting into the Triple Black trend, as an upcoming Pure Boost comes in the noir fueled palette later this summer.

The shoe itself, designed in a unique reconstructed variation of Primeknit, is harnessed by a taped-like cage support where the three stripes reside along with a slightly bolstered heel counter. Subtle additions of leather add a sophisticated allure to the low-cut model that is punctuated with black BOOST momentarily exposed in white at the medial siding.

Grab a look at the adidas Y-3 Pure Boost “Triple Black” below and expect the release this September.

Where to Buy the Air Jordan 13 “Black Cat”

The Air Jordan 13 has long been a favorite for many Jordan fans.  Not only was the shoe a beautiful design by Tinker Hatfield, but also the shoe will be forever remembered as the shoe worn throughout Michael Jordan’s last season with the Chicago Bulls.

One of the design inspirations for the Air Jordan 13 was “panther paws” on the outsole that came from MJ’s nickname of “Black Cat.”  The Air Jordan 13 “Black Cat” pays homage to the initial design cue in this beautifully executed blacked out design.

The Air Jordan 13 “Black Cat” is available now for sale at select online retailers listed below:

Nike

Nike Outlet Destroyed on Black Friday

If you’ve ever worked retail like me, you probably hate Black Friday. The holiday is both really good and really bad depending on your role that day. Catching sales up to 70% off is the best retail therapy ever. But on the flip side, it also causes people to turn into savages making illogical decisions, being overly aggressive, and showing complete disregard for others. So much so that a lot of us stay home to avoid the madness or dread going to work.

Nike is one of the top brands in the world, so what do you think happens there on Black Friday? Absolute chaos.

At one Outlet last night, the entire floor of every isle was littered with sneakers and clothing. You could argue there was more product on thrown around than what was available on shelves. That didn’t stop patrons shopping amidst all the wreckage though. Getting deals is a major key, but it can be done while showing courtesy for those who are working as well. We can all do better on Black Friday.
