Air Jordan Retro 7

J. Cole made the statement of “Carolina Blue kicks, pedal to the metal” and it seems that Jordan Brand is making that the theme of Summer ’17. JB is hitting sneakerheads with the one-two punch of the University Blue 11 Lows and now we get the Air Jordan Retro 7 in that same color combo. The shoe was originally part of the “Pantone” collection of Air Jordan samples that were showcased at the 2010 World Basketball Festival. The monochromatic look of the Air Jordan 7 features a tonal University Blue upper that sits atop a solid white sole and complimenting white branding accents throughout.

Retro 7 Pantone

Two things come to mind when you think of Carolina Blue, MJ playing in college and the classic “Best Of Me Part 2” music video where Jay-Z and Mya have matching UNC jerseys. The clip above has become synonymous with the color scheme and the sneaker culture. Classic moments in hip-hops prime when music videos had an influence and over sized jerseys were the go-to ‘fit have built a foundation in the game that will always be remembered.

Make sure you grab your pair of the Air Jordan Retro 7 ‘Pantone’ on April 29th at Finishline.com.

The bold Nike Basketball sneaker made famous by,”The Worm”, Dennis Rodman is returning in all of its ’90s glory. Break out your Rodman jerseys and get ready to rock #91 all summer long. These were rocked by Dennis Rodman during the heyday of the Chicago Bulls, and there’s no question that the shoe matched his personality.

UA Curry 3Zer0

While Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors look to start their run in the NBA Playoffs, it looks like we can expect Curry to be dropping dimes in his newest signature sneaker. The UA Curry 3Zer0 features an updated Charged Cushioning crash pad for unique flexibility and added stability for on-court performance. While the UA Curry 3 has done the job for the relentless sharp-shooter, Under Armour wants to make sure that SC30 is laced and ready for anything that could come his way in the playoffs. The design and structure of the Curry 3Zer0 is similar to the UA Curry 3 but the new lightweight upper and herringbone traction pattern on the bottom provide Curry with some reinforcements after a long season. This first pair is releasing in Warriors colors as a royal blue upper dominates the shoe and is complimented by a white midsole and yellow accents that are found on the tongue, mud guard and insole.

Grab your pair of the Under Armour Curry 3Zer0 on April 15th at Finishline.com.

Retro 11 Low UNC

Spring is almost here and that means nice weather is on the way, and every sneakerhead knows that it’s time to break out their best kicks now that winter weather is gone. JB knows this all too well, so it’s a genius move on their part to bring back one of the most coveted Air Jordan 11 Lows in the brands history. The Air Jordan Retro 11 Low ‘University Blue’ or ‘Columbia’ like it was called in 2001, holds a special spot in the sneaker world since it’s a favorite of the Jordan 11 model and it comes decked out in MJ’s alma-matters colors. That smooth combination of Carolina blue and white clash perfectly.

Kyrie 3 All Star

As the NBA Season comes to a close, Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers have had their hands full as they battle to take the top spot in the Eastern Conference. While Kyrie and his team have been battling on the hardwood, the team over at Nike has been pumping out new colorways of the Nike Kyrie 3 with a quickness. Uncle Drew has been playing in tons of PE’s this year and special colorways like the ‘Duke’ pair that honors his alma-matter and more. This next release has a special occasion tied to it also.

Nike Kyrie 3 University Red

If you watched NBA All-Star Weekend this year then you should remember that Kyrie took part in the three-point shootout. This next drop is the sneaker that he wore during that shootout, so another special occasion is attached. The ‘University Red’ Kyrie 3 features a red-based upper with matching laces and Flywire cables and black detailing is seen on the Nike Swoosh, liner, speckled midsole and outsole to round out the colorway. These are perfect for the summer months when you dominate the courts and have a sneaker that’s just as hot as the weather outside.

Grab your pair of the Nike Kyrie 3 ‘University Red’ on April 15th at Finishline.com.

PG 1 Black Ice

The Nike PG 1 has been one of the biggest talking points in sneakers so far this year and seems to be gaining momentum. We’ve seen four colorways drop so far and they’ve flown off shelves. With more on the horizon, it looks like the PG 1 could dominate all of 2017. PG became the 21st Nike Athlete to get their own signature shoe and many thought that it should have happened a long time ago. Like most elite players, he will get his own signature shoe that is built to take his game to the next level and reflect his style of play. George prefers to play in low-tops so it’s only right that his signature sneaker is built that way.

Nike PG 1 Black Ice

This next pair comes with a clean colorway that may resemble a classic Nike Running one. The ‘Black Ice’ pair comes with a clean smooth black upper that sits atop a speckled white midsole. The icing on the cake is the clean, icy white sole that compliments the whole color scheme. The black-based upper is built with a mix of suede and mesh to give a performance look with an on-court feel that is perfect for every adventure. If you’ve got all the other colors of the PG 1 then you most definitely want to add this to the collection.

Grab your pair of the Nike PG 1 ‘Black Ice’ on April 14th at Finishline.com.

Jordan 13 Low Brave Blue

Another Jordan Brand classic is set to return this year and it’s one that sneakerheads have been wanting for years. The Air Jordan Retro 13 Low ‘Brave Blue’ last released in 1998 and even though it isn’t a classic colorway, it is one that Jordan lovers are glad to see return. This Air Jordan Retro 13 Low comes dressed in a brave blue, silver and black colorway. It comes donned in a black leather constructed upper with a brave blue mesh with 3M reflective underlay. A silver Jumpman on the upper ankle and white midsole finishes off the design.

Grab your pair of the Air Jordan Retro 13 Low ‘Brave Blue’ on April 8th at Finishline.com.
