Drizzy took to the ‘gram last night to showcase his new collab with Jordan Brand — the “6IX Year” 8’s, which he wore/premiered at OVO Fest. These are the best looks of the shoe’s white and black colorways thus far, with the latter one below being the sharpest and my favorite. Hopefully these are made for some sort of general release down the line.
Not only Drake, but Eminem x Jordan now?
The ultra rare blue Shady x Jordan IVs came out in ’06 and Eminem had his own exclusives of IIs in 2008. Now, via Sneaker News, there’s a third collab coming.
It’s this pictured pair of Air Jordan IVs, designed to commemorate the 15th anniversary of The Marshall Mathers LP. Not much info is known, or confirmed, beyond this but it does look promising for at least a PE sort of release. Hopefully the masses can get their hands on ’em too.
With all the hoopla surrounding yesterday’s Meek Mill Drake “diss”, you may have missed the announcement of the hotly anticipated OVO Air Jordan X and when you can get it.
The official images were leaked off Nike’s servers earlier this week and can be seen in the gallery above. Also: all the fresh new OVO gear that you can get at this weekend’s OVO Fest in Toronto (ya know, if you’re not at Lollapalooza…)
Take a look!
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.
Drawing on the visionary talent of Michael Jordan, Mark Parker and Tinker Hatfield, the two-pair MTM pack explores the past and present, with an Air Jordan XX9—the latest and most innovative of the Jordan linage—and a fresh iteration of its 30-year-old predecessor, the original Air Jordan I. Available June 13 exclusively at #P75PARIS through a raffle at Jordan.com/paris. Coming soon to select #NikeLab destinations worldwide.
The MTM Air Jordan XX9 trades its Flyweave upper for rich black leather. One-piece leather construction transforms the exterior, with the FlightPlate technology and its distinctive outsole the only hints at the high-fidelity performance within. Available June 13 exclusively at #P75PARIS through a raffle at Jordan.com/paris. Coming soon to select #NikeLab destinations worldwide.

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.
Gotta show some dap to the Jumpman’s newest collection that, if you’re perhaps a casual sneakerhead like myself, you’re seeing for the first time.
The timing is perfect as the “Hare” Jordan Retro 7 drops tomorrow Saturday May 16th and will be one of the most anticipated Jordan sneaker releases of 2015. The gallery above not only shows the official, detailed images but I also pulled out some of my favorites of the extensive #HareJordan collection. Oh yeah, apparel and nostalgia galore.
Few more things:
– How do you get one of those Bugs Wings posters? Need that in my future penthouse suite.
– My first pickup from the collection actually arrived today. Had to grab somethin’ new for tank season and this is instantly one of my favorite recent purchases.
– How great is the new 30 second remake with Bugs? A: GREAT.
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.
