Wale’s “Shine” Album Inspires Custom Jordan 3

Rap and sneakers go hand in hand since Run-DMC and Adidas linked up back in the late ‘80s. From Kendrick Lamar to Tyler The Creator, we’ve seen a multitude of artists have their artistic impact go beyond the music. Although many artists have linked up a deal with a sneaker brand, some skip on the checks.

To fill that void, Mache customs designed and gifted Wale an Air Jordan 3 inspired by his most recent album, Shine. This custom Jordan features a red upper and the signature arm grasping the moon image, a white outsole and midsole and touches of blue, green and yellow recreate Wale’s album cover.

Check out this clean custom below courtesy of Mache Customs’ Instagram. Be sure to follow them here and read our interview with the Mache man himself, Dan Gamache, here.

Russell Westbrook Gets Air Jordan XXX1/10/10 PE Pack for His MVP Season

We all know what Jordan Brand does when one of their athletes wins a ring, but what about when they win NBA MVP? We found out today as 2016-17 NBA MVP Russell Westbrook scored a very appropriate Air Jordan XXX1/10/10 PE Pack for his accomplishments.

Playing literally and figuratively off his sensational stat line, the package is literally a triple-double as it includes three pairs pulling from his 31, 10 and 10 season long averages. It works perfectly, too, as the XXX1 proved the shoe he made history in while the AJ10 has been a PE favorite of Mr. Why Not since his early days in OKC.

While the XXX1s went live on SNKRS, our buddies at J23App pulled a preview of the fixings gifted to Russ. Would you cop this package if released at retail? Let us know in the comments section and congrats to Mr. Westbrook.

adidas Explodes in US Market Share While Nike, Jordan Slide

Last year, Nike, Inc. (which includes Nike, Jordan Brand and Converse), took home nine of the top ten spots in the list of best selling sneakers in the US. Still, it was adidas who claimed the lone and top spot of #1 seller in 2016 with the Superstar.

While the Swoosh and the Jumpman still lead the Stripes in US market share, bar graphs depicting domestic market share in May of 2016 versus that of 2017 show adidas catching up.

Sneakerheads will point to the wave beginning in 2015 with the debut of the Yeezy line while the mass success of Boost and halo effect have of Kanye have certainly helped their cool cache. With that said, the market as a whole is typically behind the innovators that compose such a sector as our own and the numbers seem to show it as reflected in 2017.

Will adidas’ momentum roll on or will Nike and Jordan continue to lead them in the US? Let us know your opinion in the comments section.

Air Jordan “Originals” Poster by Dillon Scott

Let’s face it, as much as you would like to have every single pair of the original Air Jordans, you can’t have them.  For starters, obtaining deadstock pairs at this point is practically impossible with the age of these gems and then when you factor in the fact that the prices would be enough for a new house, alternative ways to appreciate greatness are in order.

Atlanta based artist Dillon Scott has just released a limited edition poster that will look good in your space celebrating all of the OGs from Air Jordan 1-14 without the need to worry about yellowing and crumbled midsoles.

Scoop your copy of this print from his site Dobega for $ 30.

Scottie Pippen Says His Nike Air More Uptempo Stood Out More Than The Jordan 11

In 1996, Hall-of-Famer Scottie Pippen had a very unique signature sneaker, the Nike Air More Uptempo, which featured huge letters on both sides of the shoe. In conjunction with the Bulls’ success that year, Pippen’s shoe was extremely popular, much like his teammate Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan 11. Pippen though, believes that his shoes stand out more than the Jordan 11.

In an interview with Nike, Pippen said in the Bulls’ locker room, the Nike Air More Uptempo stood out more than the Jordan 11 and the Shake Ndestrukt:

Looking back at that ’96 Bulls team, you had the Jordan 11 and the Shake Ndestrukt. What was the reaction to your shoe in the locker room?
I think mine stood out a little more just because of what it said. It was kind of the graffiti basketball shoe — making a statement in real big letters. So it stood on its own.

That year in the playoffs, a bunch of your teammates wore 11s. Were you influenced by them to wear that shoe as well?
Oh no, no. I mean, I did wear Jordans in some games, but I have always tried to focus on my brand or the shoe that I was wearing to make sure I stood by it and believed in it.

Pippen obviously has personal pride, which is why he is hyping up his own sneaker. And from a simplistic viewpoint, Pippen isn’t wrong since the lettering on his shoes do make the Nike Air More Uptempo stand out. But the Jordan 11 are one of the greats and stand out in more than just one way.
