Air Jordan 7 Low Pack Takes Flight Next Week

At first thought, an Air Jordan 7 Low doesn’t sound like the best idea. However, in execution, the shoe itself isn’t nearly as bad as the initial thought of it.

With the help of a classic Air Jordan 7 colorway and two other styles that ring true in the Jordan Brand lineage — Concord and Taxi — the rollout of the 7 Low couldn’t have been more strategic. This marks a more favorable outcome than when the shoe was first unveiled ten years ago, in 2008.

Only seen and not released back then, it took a full decade for this idea and subsequent execution to come into full view. Look for the Air Jordan 7 Low Pack featuring the “Bordeaux,” “Bright Concord” and “Taxi” on September 27 via Nike SNKRS at 10am EDT.

Here’s When You Can Cop the Air Jordan 1 “Pine Green”

Jordan Brand’s “Best Hand in the Game” pack was rare. It’s not often four Air Jordan 1s in original construction release on the same day. But it’s becoming slightly less rare when you consider other releases like the “Gatorade” collection.

There are always standouts with releases like these. The “Best Hand” pack was largely anchored by the “Clay Green” edition, which went on to achieve solo fame like a breakout artist from a larger collective. Given that singular fame, most whiffed on the “Clay Greens,” making the upcoming “Pine Green” pair all the more desirable.

Removed from suede paneling that gave the “Clay Green” certain distinction, all leather adorns the Air Jordan 1 “Pine Green” that’s due out on September 22. Official images have leaked ahead of the aforementioned release heightening anticipation for the Celtics-like execution.

Jordan Brand’s “Court Purple” Air Jordan 1 will release on the same day.

An ode to the Air Jordan 3 “Black Cement,” Don’s newest iteration of his hybrid style highlights tumbled black leather alongside cement print prominently placed just above the midsole. White Swoosh branding at the medial siding, of course, doesn’t appear on the famed Air Jordan 3 but it does provide distinction to Don’s pair.

The Don C x Jordan Legacy 312 “Black Cement” released today in-store at select Foot Locker locations.

Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple” Lands This Month

Even before the widely anticipated Air Jordan 1 “Metallic Purple” is reported to retro for the first time in the very near future, Jordan Brand is gearing up to release another purple Air Jordan of a more traditional execution.

The Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple” edition, removed from the metallic glow of its aforementioned counterpart, is scheduled to hit select retailers later this month. Another in a long line of Jordan 1s to release this year, the “Court Purple” utilizes traditional tumbled leather fabrication alongside customary branding in proper placing. It’s said to release in tandem with a “Pine Green” colorway of a similar aesthetic makeup.

Fans of the Air Jordan 1 “Court Purple” can expect pairs in stores on September 22 for $ 160 USD.

rag & bone x Air Jordan XX // Coming Soon

Carmelo Anthony and Jordan Brand come together with clothing label rag & bone for an exclusive capsule that features an assortment of apparel and two renditions of the Air Jordan XX.

Both Carmelo Anthony and founder of rag & bone, Marcus Wainright, both believe that the silhouette is overlooked and thought it would be the perfect selection to complete the capsule.

The XX stays fairly true to the original aesthetic while absorbing elements of rag & bone, as well as Carmelo Anthony’s personal style. Equipped with a Flyknit upper construction, the shoe also incorporates neutral tones into the styles that are ideal for fall weather, while the makeup of the outsole is inspired by the laser etchings on the straps of the original Jordan XX. Lastly, the shoes come equipped with reflective details and interchangeable patches for a customized look.

The rag & bone x Air Jordan XX doesn’t have an official release date yet, but stay tuned with Nice Kicks for more details about the upcoming release.

Jimmy Garoppolo Joins Jordan Brand

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has signed an endorsement deal with Jordan Brand, according to a new report by ESPN. Garoppolo and other newly signed Jordan Brand athletes will be officially announced before the start of the NFL regular season next weekend.

Growing in up Arlington Heights, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, Garoppolo, 26, has been a fan of Jordan Brand as far back as he could remember. Thus, his signing with the brand holds unique sentimental value. “Since I got in the league, it was one of my dreams to be with Jordan and it came true, so I’m pretty excited about it,” Jimmy told ESPN.

A post shared by Jimmy Garoppolo (@jimmypolo10) on

Garoppolo is still riding high off of his five-game win streak for the Niners at the close of last season. He was traded to the 49ers last October after backing up Tom Brady in New England.

Jordan Brand was always Garoppolo’s first choice as an endorser. Given his hometown, love for Michael Jordan, and other Chicago sports heroes, the stars were aligned through Jordan Brand. However, he was presented by others including Under Armour, Adidas, and Nike last spring. Around that time, Jordan Brand allowed the quarterback to test out Air Jordan cleats (although he considers the Air Jordan 3 his favorite). The writing was on the walls.

Terms of Garoppolo’s budding deal have not yet been disclosed. He did, however, tell ESPN that he’ll be wearing something special during the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings on September 9.

Drake’s Air Jordan 4 “Splatter” Sample Surfaces in Detail

After firmly pledging his allegiance to Jordan Brand on fellow Nike Boy Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” Drake‘s long discussed Air Jordan 4 “Splatter” sample has just resurfaced. But is the timing a coincidence?

Given the success of Scott’s official Air Jordan 4 collaboration and its many friends and family offshoots, Jordan Brand collaborators seem to be leaning heavily into the 1989 produced shoe. Drake’s “Splatter” PE features remnants of the “Bred” 4s although stylized with unique odes to OVO’s head honcho.

With the brands owl logo found inside the heel tab, a paint splatter pattern rounds the heel and marks the reinforcements above the midsole. Visible stitching is still seen around the Jumpman at the shoes centermost point while white “Nike Air” branding at the rear matches the shoes midsection.

At present time, there are no release details surrounding Drake’s Air Jordan 4 “Splatter” sample. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details. In the meantime, check out Drizzy’s tour footwear.

With summer now nearing its end, Jordan Brand loudly crescendos with the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Highlighter” Pack.

A slighter lesser version of the widely beloved Air Jordan 11 Low, the IE serves an alternate purpose removed from patent leather and the glossy finish of the Air Jordan 11 proper. Here, traditional leather coupled with elephant printed overlays evoke contrasting emotion heightened by striking fluorescents.

Releasing in three summer centric colorways –Crimson Flash, Volt and Rio Teal — this hyper tonal collection breathes new life into the 11 Low IE which is often sidelined when compared to its more traditional counterpart. Look for the “Highlighter” pack this Thursday via select Jordan retailers including Feature.

Nigel Sylvester Debuts Upcoming Air Jordan 1 Collaboration

BMX pro Nigel Sylvester announced earlier this year that he had an Air Jordan 1 collaboration in the works. Sylvester later spoke in greater detail about the upcoming release while introducing the latest installment to his budding “GO” campaign in New York City. Today he debuts the collaborative sneaker for the very first time.

The first to ever touch the Jumpman logo on a BMX bike. Release info coming soon. @jumpman23 shot: @ralphyramos #JordanBikingCo #GOmode

A post shared by nigelsylvester (@nigelsylvester) on

On its face, the design is one of the more inspired that we’ve seen from the Air Jordan 1 in recent times. Nigel, who almost exclusively rides in the famed 1985 design, is intimately aware with how the shoe wears after extreme usage. That said, his design takes on a weathered aesthetic seen through a Sail colored upper to mimic yet circumvent the aging process. Coupled with a black nylon tongue, a miniature Swoosh stamps the lateral toe while strategically placed scuff marks round the front foot and heel.

Nigel’s adoration for the Air Jordan 1 has long been felt in still images and many of his viral videos. From the “Shadows” to the “Royals” and everything in between, Sylvester has biked in the lot of them. There’s a matrimony between Sylvester and the Air Jordan 1 that dates back years. Later this month, when the shoe is expected to release on August 22, that union will join the Lance Mountain x Air Jordan 1 in rare air.

Expect more details on the Nigel Sylvester x Air Jordan 1 in the weeks to come.
