Air Jordan 10 Retro 'Seattle'

The Seattle Supersonics may have moved on, but none of us will ever forget that iconic green and yellow. Seattle this one’s for you. Dipping deep inside the vaults, Jordan Brand is blessing us with the return of the Air Jordan 10 ‘Seattle.’ You may remember these from the player exclusive edition that shooting guard Kendall Gill rocked during his time with the Sonics. Debuting as part of the 1995 ‘City Pack,’ this upcoming release marks the first time this colorway has been retroed.

A bit of a sneaker icon, the AJ10 of course is the sneaker that Michael Jordan made his first return to basketball in. Hanging up his baseball cleats, MJ led his Chicago Bulls to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, where they ultimately fell to the Shaq and Penny led Orlando Magic.

Coming dressed in white and black, the muted upper is the perfect base for the voltaic accenting used throughout the shoe. Your eye is immediately drawn to the Kelly Green lining and detailing on the sole. Turn these bad boys over and you’ll not only get a chance to peep some of Jordan’s accolades up until ‘95 (3x NBA Champion, 3x Finals MVP, All Defense, Scoring Title, Dunk Champion, Rookie of the Year), but you’ll also see that Yellow Gold Jumpman that returns from the original release.

 

A must-have this season. You can grab the Air Jordan 10 Retro ‘Seattle’ on 10/19 from Finish Line.

Very few sneakers can give you that same feeling of excitement that stepping out in a pair of J’s will. This remains true today, over 30 years after the release of MJ’s first signature shoe. The Jumpman has long been graduated from just hype, and is ingrained as an iconic symbol in the world of sneakers and pop culture. Check out how these Jordan fanatics style their J’s for the ‘gram, and maybe catch some inspiration for your next pick up.

Puma x Tetris

Puma x Tetris

What a nostalgia trip. Puma and The Tetris Company are set to release an electric collaboration from Puma’s RS line. At first it may not seem obvious how the two brands intertwine, but a deeper dive shows that they’re a match made in heaven. Both legends of the ‘80s, the Puma RS (running system) has been a sneaker marvel since its debut in 1986. Tetris, designed by Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984, became a classic thanks to its introduction on the Nitendo Game Boy in 1989.

Puma x Tetris

Including two Puma sneaker silhouettes (RS-X and RS 9.8) and a gaggle of apparel (only online), this collection is as riveting as the game by which it’s inspired. Coming in contrasting Puma Black and Puma White colorways, both shoes feature pieces from Tetris at the sides. Vibrant detailing throughout really helps make these pop. The tracksuit and two tees in the collection are the perfect complements for this trip down nostalgia way. In celebration of Tetris’ 35th anniversary, this release will be a must-have for any true video game fan.

Put the pieces in place with the Puma x Tetris Collection. Available 10/17 from Finish Line.

Harden Vol.4 'Barbershop'

James Harden has been a man of mystery this past summer. The Beard teased a new, never-before-seen offensive move (which appears to be some sort of one-legged, running shot) and his his fourth signature sneaker. While the jury is still out on his new move, the mystery of his latest sneaker has been solved. Dubbed the adidas Harden Vol.4, the model was built specifically for Harden’s unique skill set and to help him stay strong in the fourth quarter. “The process to create the Vol.4 was a true collaboration with the adidas design team that allowed me to voice my creativity and to blend different ideas into one shoe that would showcase both my style of play on the court and my sense of style walking out of the tunnel,” Harden said in a press release.

The Vol.4 moves away from BOOST technology, instead it makes use of the explosive, dynamic Lightstrike cushioning. Lightstrike of course was first introduced on the adidas N3XT L3VEL last year. It’s paired with rubber outsole that has generative traction pattern, inspired and tailored to Harden’s on-court movements. A mixed-media upper makes use of a unique lacing system, providing a stable, locked-down feel and lateral stability.

Built for one of the NBA’s best.

Grab the adidas Harden Vol.4 on 10/12 from Finish Line.

Air Jordan XXXIV 'Bred'

Air Jordan XXXIV 'Bred'

Less is more. Jordan Brand has taken that mantra to heart and is implementing it with its latest signature shoe. The Air Jordan XXXIV is a lesson is restraint, the model strips away non-essentials materials and leaves you with only what you need. All while focusing on innovation, a staple of Jordan Brand. 

Air Jordan XXXIV 'Bred'

Work on the AJXXXIV began with feedback received from the AJXXXIII. “Athletes noted a desire to improve traction and reduce weight — that become our starting point. We focused on athletes who are playing above the rim and making them more explosive,” said Jordan Brand designer Tate Kuerbis. The introduction of the Jordan Eclipse Plate solves the problem of explosivity. An evolution of the Jordan Flight Speed Plate, this new game-changing technology is made up of a forefoot Zoom Air unit and two Pebax pieces. Its design and positioning dramatically reduces the stiffness and weight of the shoe. While also unlocking the full-potential of the Zoom Air unit. You’ll feel more bounce, stability and lateral support than you’ve ever felt in a Jordan shoe before. The effectiveness of the Jordan Eclipse Plate is amplified by a herringbone traction pattern. Use of the classic pattern allows for a superior first step, quick cuts and lateral movement.

Construction of the AJXXXIV upper is pretty simple. Following the aforementioned less is more mantra, you’ve got a heel counter, tongue, eyestay, midfoot reinforcer and minimal branding. “One of the things I love about this shoe is that it doesn’t remind you of any Jordan from the past,” says Kuerbis. “But it does remind you of the purest form of a basketball shoe.”

Be on the lookout for the Air Jordan XXXIV, coming your way on 10/10 at Finish Line.

Nike LeBron 17 'Lakers'

Nike LeBron 17 'Lakers'

A healthy LeBron James and the additions of Anthony Davis, Danny Green and DeMarcus Cousins has expectations sky high in Los Angeles. Lakers faithful are pronouncing that Showtime (the nickname given to the Lakers during the Magic/Kareem era) is back and they have their eyes set on the Larry O’Brien trophy. With the season set to tipoff on October 22nd, Nike is releasing their first Lakers themed colorway of the LeBron 17

Coming dressed in black, the model’s new Knitposite upper provides breathability, support and the perfect base for this colorway. Eggplant and Amarillo yarns are woven into the black jewel-like upper. The result is a swirl, almost Versaceish pattern. Comfort is no issue thanks to the Max Air heel bag and the forefoot Air Zoom units. Utilizing the tongue as a storytelling vehicle, LeBron’s signature lion graces the tongue of the shoe along with his crown. The 330 (Ohio) & 213 (Los Angeles) area codes are also featured on the tongue. A symbol of the journey, the King has taken from the start of his NBA career.

Get ready for the season with the Nike LeBron 17 ‘Lakers’ on 10/10 from Finish Line.

Air Jordan 12 Retro 'Gym Red'

Air Jordan 12 Retro 'Gym Red'

The AJ9 has always been a bit of an anomaly in the Air Jordan line. It’s the sole model that Michael Jordan didn’t lace up during his playing career. That of course is because the Air Jordan 9 released during MJ’s first retirement. Where he traded in his sneaks and the court for cleats a diamond. Regardless we’ve seen some pretty dope colorways of the AJ9. This next release is 100% Chicago Bulls approved and will have sneakerheads thinking about what could’ve been. White tumbled leather provides the perfect base for the Gym Red patent leather overlays. Black accents at the eyelets, tongue and heel complete this colorway.

Don’t miss out. You can secure the Air Jordan 9 Retro ‘White/Red’ on October 5th from Finish Line.

Nearly 30 years after the first Air Jordan model released, there’s still no feeling like lacing up a fresh pair of MJ’s finest. Let’s be honest, with the past winter we had, it didn’t seem like summer could come fast enough. We’re getting what we wanted because the heat is definitely here. Peep these Jordan enthusiasts and collectors and how they rock their J’s, and don’t be scared to hit that follow button.
