Check out the Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 Designed by Craig Stecyk

nike sb x air jordan 1

Yesterday Nike Skateboarding finally confirmed a several-year-old rumor old by releasing a photo of P-Rod that introduced a collab between Nike SB and Air Jordan. The duo will be releasing a set of Air Jordan 1 x Nike SB sneakers designed by Craig Stecyk and Lance Mountain.

Many skaters remember the popularity of the original Air Jordan 1 during the mid to late 80’s. Images of Lance Mountain skating in the AJ1 are embedded in Skateboarding history.

For 2014, Nike SB reintroduces the classic Air Jordan model in an updated form. The first Nike SB x AJ1 comes in iridescent green and was designed by Craig Stecyk. The sneaker draws inspiration from Stecyk’s “Northwest Passage” Art Gallery showing during the late 80’s.

The sneakers are set to release March 15th at select Nike SB retailers. A second Nike SB x Air Jordan 1 designed by Lance Mountain is also due to drop in 2014; stay with us for details.

Michael Jordans Game Worn 1992 Olympic Jersey Sells for Almost 33K!

michael-jordan-dream-team-used-uniform-01

What’s the most you would be willing to spend for an authentic NBA basketball jersey? Two hundred? Three hundred? Four? Okay, but how much would you spend for a chance to own Michael Jordan’s game worn 1992 Olympic Basketball jersey from the Dream Team? Try $32,682.63!

That’s right, MJ’s uniform (jersey and shorts) were just sold by Goldin Auctions last weekend. Both made by one of Rare Vintage Wear favorite brands, Champion. The jersey was a size 46 and shorts size 36. I’m sure the winning bidder plans to frame the set, but if I were him I would throw on the uniform ASAP and take a few jumpers in the driveway!

It is EXTREMELY difficult to find an Authentic version of the jersey, making this jersey more rare in my opinion. Lucky for me, I know a former Champion employee holding an entire set of Dream Team Authentic jerseys from the whole team. He’s not selling them anytime soon. Sorry!

 

Nike Celebrates MJ’s 1st Title With Air Jordan 6 “Championship Cigar”

championship-cigar-air-jordan-6

It’s hard to believe Michael Jordan won his first NBA Title about 25 years ago. MJ laced up his trusty Air Jordan 6’s and defeated the Los Angeles Lakers in only 5 games. This would serve as the cornerstone in a run of three straight championships for Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.

This summer, Nike will honor Jordan’s first NBA Championship with the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Championship Cigar” edition. It is common knowledge that MJ would spark up a choice cigar after each and every NBA Championship win. The sneakers are made to look like a cigar, decked out in premium leather and even feature a replica championship ring. A must have for fans of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. They are set to drop this summer, stay with us as more release information drops, and thanks to @kicksordie for the photos!

Back in 2006, Jordan Brand held a charity auction to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina. One of the sneakers auctioned off was a pair of White/Cement Jordan III’s with a Red midsole. Sneakerheads quickly began reffering to the kicks as the “Katrina 3’s”.

The buzz surrounding the sneakers has grown rapidly since 2006. The only pair I have seen myself is at the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. Many sneakerheads have been waiting for the coveteted kicks to see store shelves. Luckily, 2014 is the year! The Air Jordan III Retro Katrina edition will release March 14th, 2014 for $170. I expect these to be extremely limited so call your connect now! Pick up a Chicago Bulls jersey to match as well.

Air Jordan V Oregon Ducks Edition Surfaces Amongst Oregon Sneaker Scandal

air-jordan-5-v-oregon-ducks-green player exclusive PE

If you don’t understand how big the athletic sneaker industry is in 2013, you’ve either been living under a rock or only wear Crocs.

Sneakers are fetching extremely high average prices at retail and even more rediculous prices on the secondhand market. If you don’t believe me go to eBay and type in Nike Air Yeezy… In 2013, there is most certainly a divide from the older “sneakerheads” and the younger “hypebeast” crowd.

Over the past few years, one of the most popular series of virtually unattainable sneakers has been the University of Oregon Air Jordan Retro line. Since the university has close ties with Nike, football and basketball players have received several limited edition Air Jordan models as “gifts”.

 

Air Jordan Retro III & IV Oregon Edition

Air Jordan Retro III & IV Oregon Edition

Air Jordan IV White Oregon Ducks PE

Air Jordan IV White Oregon Ducks PE

The entire University of Oregon Air Jordan set never released to the public, making them extremely desirable to sneaker collectors. All four pairs of Jordan III & IV sneakers sell on the second-hand market for atleast $1000-$7000+ depending on size and condition.

Last night, images surfaced depicting a new University of Oregon Air Jordan V Retro decked out in green suede. The images created a strong buzz among the sneaker community; shortly after, the University of Oregon came forward with an announcement reguarding several players & former players selling team-issued apparel over the past year.

Basketball players Ben Carter and Dominic Artis will be suspended for several games this season. In addition, the money they earned from selling team apparel must be donated to charity. Its been reported the duo sold basketball shoes, presumably one of the many University of Oregon Air Jordan editions.

Were they wrong? Can you blame them or the current sneaker market? I was a college student a short time ago and if I had the oppurtunity to sell a pair of sneakers for $5,000, well they would be listed on this site! This also adds to the argument as to wether or not college athletes should be paid. We all know student athletes get certain benefits but should having $5,000 sneakers at their disposal be one of them?

Air Jordan to Retro Carmelo Anthony’s Melo 1.5 In Honor of 10th Anniversary

Jordan-Melo-1_5-Black-Carolina-Blue-01

It’s hard to believe 10 years ago Jordan Brand released Carmelo Anthony’s first signature sneaker, the Jordan Melo 1.5. A retro already? That makes me feel old! I remember having a pair myself in high school, being a huge fan of Carmelo Anthony and his tenure at Syracuse University.

The Melo 1.5 combined attributes from the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 2 sneakers and was featured in several Denver Nuggets colorways. One of the best hybrid Air Jordan models, the Melo 1.5 was ahead of its time. In 2014 the sneaker will return to shelves in honor of its 10th Anniversary.

Overall the sneaker design is excellent and from what I remember, were extremelly comfortable. Pictures of the original black & carolina blue colorway have surfaced. The sneakers look identical to the original model which will make Jordan and Melo fans very happy. I assume we’ll see a few New York Knicks colorways of the kicks to pop up in the future; right now feast your eyes on this pair and let us know what you think.

Nike Air Jordan 3 88′ Black Cement to Retro Again Soon!

Nike air jordan 3 retro 88 2013 2014 retro release date

Fans of the Air Jordan 3 will be happy to hear this news; the popular sneaker will once again return to stores in 2013-2014 in the famous black/cement colorway. After Nike hit us with the white/cement 3’s last year in honor of MJ’s 50th birthday, this year the black/cement will be the king of the retro’s.

It was the first time since 2003 we saw the Jordan III’s retro with the original Nike Air on the back heel tab. With the way the white/cement edition sold last year we expect Jordan Brand to hit us with another $200 price tag (I wouldn’t be surprised if they even up the price more!)

Let us know if you’re excited about this news or wish Jordan would slow down their retro overhaul.

Early Leak: Air Jordan 5 Retro Doernbecher Edition

Air-Jordan-5-Doernbecher

After months of speculation and hype, we finally have our first images of the upcomming 2013 Air Jordan 5 Retro “Doernbecher” edition. The DB V’s were designed to celebrate the life of Issac Arzate who passed away on April 20, 2012 at the age of 12.

The sneakers are decked out in black and feature several special inscriptions all over the sneakers and behind the tongue. They also feature Issac’s number 9 on the right side. These sneakers look beautiful and are set to release later in 2013; we’re betting in October. Let us know what you think about the first images of the Air Jordan 5 Retro Doernbecher.
