With the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour starting this past weekend, Drake took a moment to share what exclusive kicks he’s rockin’ on stage. The Drake OVO Air Jordans III is a sleek all-black with the Jumpman coming in two bright accents. The Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour, Street Fighter-inspired logo also appears on the sole. My verdict: Fresh.
We’re on a string of hot new Air Jordan releases (I guess, when are we aren’t?) and today’s features some all new detail shots of the Air Jordan III “Sport Blue” retros that are set to drop August 16th.
Jordan Brand confirmed to SLAM today that the release date for both Air Jordan XX9 colorways (above and below) is Saturday, September 6.
The cool part about the launch is that Jordan Brand will allow prospective customers to wear-test the sneakers at to be announced events across the country this summer.
Says Brian O’Connor, VP Global Brand Jordan Marketing, “Before consumers can buy the shoe on September 6, we wanted to create opportunities for them to try the shoe, and experience firsthand what it’s like to take flight in the Air Jordan XX9.”
Look out for these events this summer (no doubt they’ll have one in Chicago) and start saving up the $225 now.
I don’t always post sneaker news, but when I do, it’s because I need to raise money want to buy them.
The Air Jordan VI “History of Jordan” is revealed in various photos in the gallery above as you’ll see the dominant red leather popping out with accents of lime green and blue on the heel and bottom. Really looking forward to diving into the symbols and significance of the details inscribed on the insole, as seen above too.
Finish Line’s Brandon Edler revealed the release date yesterday, with the Nike Store likely to announce theirs soon too. *sets up calendar alert*
Jordan VI “History of Jordan” coming to Finish Line on 8/9
Charlotte Hornets back! And with each release, I, like 100% of others, are excited about the return of the purple/teal. First was the jerseys that I think will continue to grow on me. Next, the Honey Comb Floor that I texted to a couple people in all-caps excitement. Now we have an all-new purple/teal colorway from Jordan for the return of the boss’ team. And wow, that purple shining is breathtaking. We hope for a release date soon…
