A First Look at the Nike Chuck Posite Black/Court Purple

Disappearing and reappearing like a magic trick gone wrong, the Nike Chuck Posite is back in the fold today with a colorway reminiscent to a former team of its namesake figure. Aligning in tone with Barkley’s MVP year and Finals run in Phoenix with the Suns, this harmonious Chuck Posite colorway takes to a bold black base with contrasting court purple accents across its imposing tongue, sockliner and speckled white lace liner. The aggressive exterior is finished with a translucent outer alongside a metallic silver carbon fiber plate. No release details are readily available at this time, but keep it locked for more of this new Chuck Posite Phoenix Suns-inspired color iteration.

words // Gregory Williams:

Having peppered retailers with its fair share of anticipated releases, Jordan Brand dug in the archives to unearth the “Chicago” version of the Air Jordan 1/2 Sample. Pieced together with the classic stylings of the AJ1 making up the upper, the AJ2’s iconic midsole and out sole tooling finishes off the rest of the look. Dressed with an all too familiar mix of Bulls-derived colors charging throughout its mashup construction, the Air Jordan 1/2 Sample “Chicago” is still without a release date. Check out another look at these joints after the jump and make sure you keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more info.

HYPEBEAST Tested Microsoft’s “How Old Do I Look?” App with 15 Usual Suspects

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist,” says con man Kint, who was played by Kevin Spacey in 1995 crime thriller The Usual Suspects. The quote is a nod at the idea that we often refuse to admit that there’s evil around us, acting as we please with little regard for consequences. While “evil” might be a strong word to describe vanity, there’s no denying that some go to great length to achieve their idea of perfection. Coincidentally, one of the greatest tricks the human ever pulled was to fool the world about his age. With all the cosmetic surgery available, this trick isn’t exactly hard to pull off. Thankfully a large part of the world still veers away from such narcissistic practices, preferring to opt for the word “wise” rather than “old.” Yet, the thought still lingers in the back of our heads, “how old do I come across?”

Adding to the pool of distractions on the Internet is “How Old Do I Look,” an app designed by Microsoft that guesses your age after analysing 27 points on your face. The app admittedly states that it is still under construction so the accuracy could differ. Understanding the variables, we tested the app with some of the most recognizable faces in fashion, music and pop culture. Rallying up a slew of usual suspects from our latest HYPEBEAST 100s list, along with a few special candidates, we learnt that in some instances — such as Lev Tanju, Ronnie Fieg, and Pharrell Williams — the app was either spot on or missing the age by one year. Ricardo Tisci, Virgil Abloh and Gigi Hadid were marked up a few years perhaps due to their nasolabial folds, but not at the whopping gap of 16 years, as it appeared for HBA creative director Shayne Oliver. He was said to be 42, but in fact is 26. Adrianne Ho would be pleased to know that she’s been given four years head start, and Hiroshi Fujiwara — a striking 21 years.  After decades of recreational cannabis use, Snoop Dogg’s heavy eye-bags and overall droopy look has earned him +10 years, while the gorgeous Bruce Jenner knocked a decade off his seniority, a glitch in part thanks to the reconstructive surgery he’s acquired .

Check the line-up above and let us know how far off you think these estimations are. Head over to “How Old Do I Look” and try out the app to see how well Microsoft knows you.

Check out a Detailed Look at the Air Jordan 5 “Pre-Grape”


words // Gregory Williams:

While its colorway that is scheduled to release tomorrow may be new to some, the “Pre-Grape” Air Jordan 5 has actually been around a lot longer.

Finished with a touch of white adorning the tongue and an icy outsole holding things down below, the Air Jordan 5 “Pre-Grape” is slated to arrive at select retailers, including VILLA, on May 2nd.

With several of its iconic counterparts dropping it low, the Air Jordan 6 will also be joining the low-cut fold with the return of its classic “Chrome” colorway. Coming back for the first time since it was originally released in 2002, a hearty dose of black darkens the silhouette’s sueded base with metallic silver dressing the accents.

A Closer Look at the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Barcelona Days”

In anticipation of the Air Jordan 7 Retro “Barcelona Days” release which is slated to be tomorrow 25 April, we take A Closer Look at the shoe dedicated to Spain’s involvement with the summer Olympic Games of 1992. The iconic silhouette has been rendered with a relatively playful colorway reminiscent of Barcelona’s seemingly vibrant culture with this idea being mirrored through the use of pop colors on the shoe’s outsole,tongue and heel counter.The upper has been constructed from a combination of light grey suede with an overlay of dark grey leather panelling forming the recognizably peaked design of the overall shoe. The fact that color has been used so sparingly amongst a predominantly grey scale palette suggests a link to the fact that the vibrant society and various cultural phenomena within Spain’s capital can be somewhat hidden at times — reserved for locals and those in the know. This particular rendition of the very shoes Michael Jordan wore throughout the 1992 tournament will be available at select retailers like Packer Shoes, and online at Nike for $ 190 USD.

Another Look at the Air Jordan 7 “Barcelona Days”


words // Darren Griffin:

Although the Nike.com release this weekend has been delayed for reasons that remain unknown, the Air Jordan 7 “Barcelona Days” could still be yours tomorrow at select Jordan Brand retailers globally. Inspired by Spain’s participation in the Summer Olympic Games in 1992, the retro Jordan silhouette takes to a playful color variation that features the foundational components of the Air Jordan 7 “Bourdeaux.” However, were the black and grey base takes the Bourdeaux in another direction, this pair moves towards vibrant color pops at the tongue, midsole, outer and Jumpman branding. Give them one last look below for the release tomorrow, April 25, at select retailers including Packer Shoes.
