For the first time since 2013 the Jordan 13 returns in the bred color way. This time sporting a 3M mesh and premium suede. This shoe became iconic back during Jordan’s 1997-1998 season, when he went on to win his 6th NBA championship and walked away from the game for the second time. Jordan ended up returning to the NBA for the 2002-2003 season with the Washington Wizards. This year the Jordan 13 bred drops on August 19thwith a price tag of $190. (pictures via The Closet Inc.

Are collaborations really running the sneaker game right now? In my opinion, I would have to say YES! And to be honest no one does it better than Adidas. Adidas has done several collaborations this year, some of my favorite being collaborations with Reigning Champ, Sneakersnstuff, and Overkill. Adidas is fresh and is giving sneaker heads something new like the Ultra boost and the EQT. They also team up with the likes of Kanye, Kith, and Pharrell Williams giving us never before seen shoes and color ways. The Jordan brand on the other hand just gives us retro with new color ways; although they did give us the best collaboration of the year with the Jordan 4 X KAWS we still want something fresh and new from the goat. No matter what the brand is people will always gravitate towards collaborations because of the limited numbers in which they are produced and the overall unique designs and color ways.

Game 1 of the NBA finals starts tonight with an epic duo between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors. Both teams are coming into the playoffs hot with the Golden State Warriors going 12-0 so far in the playoffs. Do you think they have what it takes to sweep the reigning champs and take down the NBA’s best player? My money is with LeBron James and Cleveland winning in a tough 7 game series.
I would say the sneaker game is more about money rather than the passion of just liking shoes and fly kicks. I find few people that buy shoes that they like. Most of the sneaker heads that collect now days just buy whatever is hot, as you can see in some of the resell prices. A prime example of the hype movement would be the Kanye West Powerphase. Pretty much an Adidas version of the reebok classic club c 85. The resell on the shoe is now as high as $1200 just because it’s a Kanye West shoe. Adidas is the new king of shoes and caters to the resell market with simple releases such as the NMD and Ultra Boost selling out almost every release meanwhile Jordan brand shoes are sitting more and more. The designer shoe gives you a bold tasteful look that you can wear with almost anything, for example the Balenciaga arena. Although the designer or more expensive pieces aren’t for everyone they are good to have in the collection if you have the money.
What’s up family! Today I am doing my first ever story on Nike Basketball. We have the Flip the Switch Collection which celebrates Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Paul George’s surge to the NBA Championship. The collection includes the LeBron 14, the PG1, Kyrie 3, KD 9 ELITE, and the Kobe AD. Each shoe in this collection is in electric colorways representing each player’s electric energy on the way to capture a ring; even though Kobe has retired the collection still includes the Kobe AD. The price tag for these shoes is $175 for the LeBron 14, $150 for the KD 9 Elite, $120 for the Kyrie 3, $110 for the PG,1 and $160 for the Kobe AD. The collection releases this Friday May 5th and you can pretty much pick these up at all Nike retailers. I will share that my favorite in this pack is the PG 1.
