Like it or not, Lebron James retro sneakers are on the way! Sure nothings been confirmed yet but I see what our friends over at Nike have up their sleeve.

While on a recent road-trip to play the Knicks and Nets in New York City, Lebron busted out two never-before-seen colorways of his famous signature sneakers. The most interested part being that the kicks were the Nike Zoom Lebron II and III respectively (two sneakers that dropped in 2005 and 2006!)

Look closely at the sneakers, I mean very closely! You’ll notice Lebron’s new logo “LJ” on the heel of the 3’s and strap of the 2’s. The original model of both sneakers featured Lebron’s “L23″ logo.

Are these sneakers are just a prelude to the Lebron Retro line? I say yes! With Kobe’s already being retroed, its safe to say we’ll see a Lebron retro in the very near future. The Kings popularity is already at an all time high and the hype surrounding sneakers is as well. Nike would be smart to cash in on the oppurtunity now.

Well wait, didn’t we already see an Air Zoom Generation retro? No, the sneakers below were rumored to release around 2008 but never saw shelves. Older sneakerheads will remember they did hit Nike.com for a second but were quickly scrapped.

At this point, we’ll have to wait and let Nike make the next move reguarding a Lebron retro sneaker.

Air Jordan III Retro Katrina To Release March 8th

air jordan iii retro katrina release date

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.

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.
