Berlin-based designer Johanna F. Schneider returns this season with a new NikeLab x JFS Women’s Training collection.
Designed to be 100% modular, the summer collection is perfectly
suited for training during the warmer months, allowing wearers to add or
remove layers before, during and after training to keep the body cool
and comfortable. Big Up Johanna, great work!
The Encyclopedia of Air Jordans, which began as a Kickstarter project, is now getting a proper retail release. The book was created by noted sneaker collector Jay Lawrence, who sought to document every single Air Jordan sneaker out there for the volume. The hardcover book features over 500 pages of history, photos, price guides, and more on Air Jordans spanning the line's 30-year history. The book begins at the Air Jordan 1 and stops at the Air Jordan XX9, as the chapter of the latest MJ signature is still being written. Villa has released The Encyclopedia of Air Jordans this month. A restock is expected soon
A little remembered fact about the Air Jordan 1 was, that Nike experimented on the shoe cushioning with several different styles and molds. There are samples of the Air Jordan 1 that have a Nike Dunk sole (and a PE version with Air cushioning), but given that the Dunk and the Air Jordan 1 are a lot alike, this is not an outstanding experiment. A more interesting hybrid is the Air Jordan 1 with an Air Jordan 2 sole that Michael Jordan wore for a few games during his rookie seasons. The model would never release of course, and it was later revealed that the new sole design was for the much more refined and stylish sequel. Based on some recent developments, it appears that the Air Jordan 1 hybrid could potentially release in 2015, so stay tuned.
40 years ago, a young runner received a package as he prepared for Boston. That runner was Bill Rodgers. And the package came from Oregon legend Steve Prefontaine. Pre sent Rodgers a short note along with a pair of running shoes. They were Boston 73’s, created by a company called Nike. The shoes fit a little loose, but they were the best he owned. Rodgers would tighten them as he toed the starting line come race morning. Two hours, nine minutes, and fifty-five seconds later, he went on to win the race and break an American Record.
Tomorrow not only the Jordan V millenium will be released, but also one of my favorite Jordan collaboration. Hare is back
Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny took the world by storm when they teamed together for a Jordan Brand TV commercial in 1992. Tomorrow Jordan Brand will release two Hare Jordan anniversary products – the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Hare” and the girl’s Air Jordan 1 Mid
