Nike is currently going all in the with the return of its “Mini Swoosh” branding. It’s been seen on both the Cortez and Air Max 1 as of late, but its origins lie with the Air Force 1, which is where it finds placement today.

Adorning this tricolored “Neptune Green” edition, the miniature Swoosh logo sits at the quarter paneling while its much larger counterpart resides in customary positioning. The Deep Royal shade in which the smaller Swoosh is coated also joins the shoe at the tongue branding, heel and liner. The design is punctuated with a white midsole.

Look for this Nike Air Force 1 Low Mini Swoosh “Neptune Green” later this summer.

Gatorade was always a huge part of Michael Jordan’s rise to fame. His endorsements went hand in hand with his fame and play on the court, and his sideline drink of choice was among the biggest.

That said, it’s not at all surprising to see this Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” edition. Inspired by the sporting drinks original logo in green and orange, the shoe is rumored to drop later this year although Jordan Release details have not been announced.

Ahead of Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, both LeBron James and Kevin Durant debuted Virgil Abloh’s upcoming Off-White x Nike Air Force 1.

Although a black pair has been seen across the web, both James and Durant debut the white option which highlights a padded, unbranded tongue with a metallic Swoosh bordered by exposed stitching. “AIR” marks the midsole as is does with the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 that Durant also wore earlier in the series, while the medial siding it riddled with Virgil’s branding.

No release details are readily available for the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 so stay tuned for updates.

Extremely Limited

JUN 9, 2017

Already marked as one of the best new sneaker releases of 2017, the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 collaboration was the limited edition release that everyone wanted and only few actually scored. Now going for almost triple its retail value on the resale market, the long rumored, and even more limited, friends and family pair has emerged.

This elusive pair is dressed in monochromatic dark grey suede with KAWS’ graphics stamped across the base. It’s unclear if the translucent outer glows in the dark like the retail pair, but given how much most adore this shoe, it’s likely if they could get their hands on a pair that they wouldn’t care much either way.

Grab a look at the KAWS x Air Jordan 4 “Friends and Family” below and share your thoughts.

Ting Meister is at it again and this time he isn’t playing games. Well, if he is, he’s winning them. All of them. Such is the case on his Air Jordan 3 “UNDFTD” Custom. Channeling one of the only collab that truly deserves to be dubbed ‘iconic,’ this pair takes everything from the time tested palette to the Rare Air velcro tagging.

See for yourself in the photos below and for more custom heat follow Ting on IG.

We've been aware of this year's "Bred" Air Jordan 13 Retro for several months, but Jordan Brand made things official in a post at air-jordan.com earlier today.

Seen here in sample form, the 2017 retro is true to the original and will reportedly feature 3M reflective mesh panels. Key features, such as the ankle hologram, are returning as well. The "Bred" Jordan 13 was one of the shoes Jordan wore during his final postseason run with the Chicago Bulls in 1998.

The "Bred" Air Jordan 13 is currently set to release on Saturday, Aug. 19 for $190 at nike.com and Jordan retailers.

Michael Jordan's Early Years Celebrated with Air Jordan x Converse Pack

Another Jordan Pack releasing this summer.



This summer, Jordan Brand and Converse are coming together to celebrate the early years of Michael Jordan's legendary career.

Included in the upcoming Air Jordan x Converse Pack is a "UNC" colorway of the Fastbreak Mid and the "Alumni Game" Air Jordan 2 Retro. The Fastbreak Mid was one of young Jordan's weapons before turning pro, most notably worn during the 1984 Olympic Games. A fairly random reference, the "Alumni Game" Jordan 2 is inspired by a Player Exclusive pair worn by Jordan during a Dean Smith dedication alumi game played in January 1986.


The pack is expected to release on Wednesday, June 28 for $300.

Air Jordan x Converse Pack
Release Date: 06/28/17

Always in large supply, Nike is gearing up for yet another budding iteration of the Air Max 95 with tonal implications towards fall.

Focusing on the newly popular “Cargo Khaki” shade, this Essential rendering of the 95 couples that aforementioned hue with both Pure Platinum and Deep Pewter. The olive midsole is perfectly contrast with reflective 3M detailing above ensuring night visibility on this upcoming AM 95.

Grab an official look at the Nike Air Max 95 Essential “Cargo Khaki” below and stay tuned for official details.

When Michael Jordan retired from basketball for the first time, no one initially expected him to take up baseball, something he had always talked about with his father who, at the time, had recently passed. Thus, in honor of his father, Michal hung up his Jordans for a pair of cleats, and Jordan Brand wasn’t really sure where to go next.

Tinker Hatfield persisted, though, creating the Air Jordan 9 to critical success. A new iteration of Michael’s first post-retirement shoe honors his foray into baseball with glove-like construction throughout the leather upper. A white liner and midsole accompanies No. 45 stitched at the heel, MJ’s baseball and basketball comeback number.

Give this upcoming Air Jordan 9 a first look below and stay tuned for a release date.

Season after season, Nike and Parisian fashion label Pigalle continue to strengthen their union with innovative product releases matched by equally triumphant rollouts. Later this spring, this premium take on Dennis Rodman’s Air Shake NDestrukt will become a part of that ongoing story.

Removed from its avant-garde asymmetrical lacing system, Pigalle gives the 90’s style a woven-like upper that sees off-center, elasticized lockdown. Essentially constructed in an upper that looks like a vintage rug or elder carpet, Game Royal accents mark the Swoosh and mudguard with Nike and Pigalle branding replacing Rodman’s Worm logo. Then, in an interesting contrast, a white midsole gives way to an even lighter milky white translucent outer.

Look for the Pigalle x NikeLab Air Shake NDestrukt on June 19 at select international retailers like titolo.

Light shades and iridescent detailing highlight the latest edition of the Nike Air Max 95, which is growing larger in release numbers as summer approaches.

Dubbed the Nike Air Max 95 “Glacier Blue” iteration, much of the base is outfitted in white while the paneling and toe cap features shifting shades that transition in a gradient fade from toe to heel. Translucent outsole construction matches clear Visible Air that comes encapsulated within a clean white midsole.

Grab this “Glacier Blue” Air Max 95 now at Sneak Avenue.
