Air Jordan XI Space Jam

Posted by Tiffany Santana on

The holiday season has arrived which brings about annual sneakerhead traditions. One particular tradition happens to be centered around the Air Jordan XI. Strategically scheduled to drop during the season of giving, Jordan Brand capitalizes off the general public's unwavering affinity for this silhouette. Bombarding newsfeeds with the current year’s forthcoming colorway, an insatiable demand is created. The Air Jordan XI Space Jam just so happens to be the subject of this year’s holiday sneaker frenzy. Contrary to most Air Jordan XI releases, there’s a chance your buying experience could be dramatically smoother. Attempting to meet growing demands, JB has chosen to release this sneaker in much larger quantities.
According to sources, major retailers such as Finishline and Footlocker intend to make these as widely available as the True Blue 3’s. Smaller boutiques have even begun securing pairs for customers as incentives for donating to charity. The idea of an accessible Air Jordan XI is nearly inconceivable. Chaotic lines, rioting, and occasional violence have become almost routine. Need I even mention the outrageous resale prices just hours after their release?! Think of this year’s plentiful supply as Jordan Brand’s push towards a more ethical sneaker culture. Could this approach mark the beginning of a new era of sneaker releases?  
The Air Jordan XI Space Jam has been slightly altered from its previous release. Few would argue that the 2016 rendition isn’t every bit as spectacular, Blue tinted icy soles delay the dreaded yellowing effect. The number 45 appears at the heel, prompting nostalgia. Just as beautiful as the sneaker itself is the level of detailing in the box. Beautiful galaxy print drapes the cover along with the numbers 45 and 23. Look for these to drop for $220 this Saturday, December 10th!

Nike Special Field Air Force 1: Are These Doing the MOST?

Posted by Tiffany Santana on

The most timeless silhouette in sneaker history has been revamped for the upcoming Winter season. The Nike Special Field Air Force 1, or the Nike SF-AF1 combines classic flavor with a modern military aesthetic. Taking cues from Nike’s FSB series, this sneaker is nearly combat-ready. Draped in full grain leather, adjustable ankle straps, and ballistic nylon, the Nike SF-AF1 is far more functional than it’s 80’s counterpart.
Designed with tactical usage in mind, this creation has been met with mixed emotions. Wearers can detach the lower strap, repurposing it as a handle for an accompanying tote bag. Although nobody’s obligated to rock the tote, is Nike doing the MOST? Has the direction of their high-end products caused a shift in patronage amongst OG Sneakerheads or have they hit the nail on the head?
The most deceptive detail of the Nike SF-AF1 is the hidden pocket under the tongue to store a passport or other small items. In the promo video, someone was shown storing cash in this largely accessible pocket. The kicks will drop in 4 colorways; 2 Women's iterations and 2 Men’s. Retailing at $185 for Women and $200 for Men, each pair will include a military-inspired carry bag. The ladies are given the option of the Light Bone/Sail or Golden Beige/Linen makeover. As for the fellas, our choices are either the Faded Olive/Gum colorway or a classic Black/Gum edition.
Look for these to drop November 5th Via the Nike SNKRS APP at 10:00 AM EST. This could be the mark of a new era of winterized footwear.
