Air Jordan 1 x XX9 “MTM”

The debut MTM collection honors the groundbreaking moment when the Air Jordan I first launched in 1985. Exploring 30 years of Jumpman heritage, the collaboration plays for the present with an upper created from Flyweave; a lightweight, one-piece construction with intricate pattern work that maintains the essence of iconic silhouette.

Whoo, more heat (or coldness) from Air Jordan x Nike Lab. If you’re lucky enough to be in Paris tomorrow, you can be the first to cop the “MTM” AJI x XX9 collection. It’ll be available soon to select Nike Lab retailers, with the raffle for tomorrow at jordan.com/paris.

Nike Air Jordan 1 High “Chicago”

This Saturday’s big Air Jordan release is none other than the Retro I — the “Chicago” colorway. What makes these special is that these retro versions will not have the famous Jumpman logo that the same retros of last year had, and these will have the Nike Air logo on the tongue — small details that angered sneakerheads before. So these “Chicago” versions of the 1s are the same ones that Jordan wore 30 years ago and also called “ugly” for the record on Letterman, as covered last week. *shrugs* As a Chicagoan til Chicago ends, I’ll be refreshing my computer Saturday morning.

As an added nice touch, the Chicagos will be unlaced, an homage to how they were first presented to MJ himself in this iconic photo.

Don C x Air Jordan I for charity

To close out Black History Month, Nike has one more release up their sleeves and it’s with frequent collaborator Don C.

This all-new Don C x Air Jordan I collab is going to a good cause — being sold in an eBay Charity Auction all week. The auction goes live an hour from posting time and the winning bid will benefit the Ever Higher Fund, which unlocks “the potential of underserved youth by supporting charitable initiative that leverage the power of sport.”

Look fresh and help the youth? That’s a winning combination. If you’ve got the money to drop, head on over to justjordanbhm.com for all the details and to bid. #Salute to Don C, continuing to inspire all Chicago designers.

Make Black History Every Day, Don't Need a Month #bhm
