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.

Make sure you post your best heat and tag @Finishline and use the #JordanFridays hashtag and maybe you’ll be featured here and gain some followers and have some sneaker blog glory! I mean, who doesn’t love some social media fame? Need to step up your game? Shop the latest Jordan Shoes now.

Chicago Beacon Store

Every outfit starts with a fresh pair of kicks. As you know, Finish Line has the latest and greatest; especially now as Finish Line’s new store in the Woodfield Mall is opening early on Saturday, June 24th at 8am. We’re bringing the heat all weekend long giving you access to the hottest product, Saturday radio broadcast with your favorite station 92.3 and access to exclusive brand activations. Come through and kick it with us and by the time you leave, your look will be on point.

We will also be broadcasting the first ever exclusive live stream from the Finish Line app on 6/23. Make sure you don’t miss out on anything by downloading the Finish Line app now.

Finish Line x Nike

We will have Nike in the house on Saturday, June 24 from 11-2.  Stop in, check out the new store and  be a part of a local art debut with some of Chi-town’s very own. And of course while you’re there purchase a pair of VaporMax and Nike will send you home with a customized tote, while supplies last.

Finish Line x adidas

On Sunday, the adidas crew will be in the spot from 2pm to 5pm. Be a part of the movement and check-out the interactive lounge and evolving art piece.  You think that’s it? Nah, we’ve got you –  we’re also bringing it with exclusive access to the adidas product team.

Finish Line x Jason Markk

Can’t make it? Don’t worry – Finish Line’s going to take care of you. Be sure to drop into your local Chicago-area Finish Line location for a gift from Jason Markk with any purchase during grand opening weekend, while supplies last.

Make sure you save June 24th on your calendar and head to Woodfield Mall or your nearest Chicago-area Finish Line.

Nike VaporMax Triple Black

Triple black has always been a dope look when it comes to outfits and sneakers. Jay-Z  spit the verse, “Black cards, black cars, all black everything” and now all black takes over the Nike VaporMax. Ever since the first run of VaporMax dropped back on Air Max Day in March, sneakerheads can’t get enough of the innovative silhouette. The completely visible Air unit eliminates the need for a midsole and max comfort with the ultimate feel with the Flyknit upper that hugs your foot to provide you with breathable comfort.

Black Anthracite VaporMax

This next pair gets the blackout look with a full black upper that features anthracite and dark grey detailing. The smooth upper sits atop the shoe’s signature Air Max sole unit that has a dark overlay that looks black but isn’t completely blacked out. Even though there are a lot of releases this year, this pair is one that you don’t want to pass up.

Make sure you grab your pair of the Nike VaporMax ‘Black/Anthracite’ on June 22nd at Finishline.com.

By Drew Hammell

From 1995 to 1997, Nike unleashed one of the most memorable ad campaigns in sneaker history. The “Phone Ads” were simple, yet effective. One innovative shoe after another was portrayed on a white background with a red Swoosh logo, and a phone number at the bottom.  By the end of Spring ’97 however, the minimalist campaign came to an end, and Nike started showcasing their latest models with email addresses instead of phone numbers.

Heading into the final few years of the 20th century, methods of communication were evolving quickly.  The World Wide Web was becoming mainstream. Households across the United States were installing dial-up modems, and each family member was creating their own personal email address. A veritable new age was beginning, and Nike created ads to demonstrate they were in tune with the cultural shift.

Nike Air Ubiquitous Max

Along with the communication evolution came an evolution in Nike Air technology. In 1995, Nike introduced visible Air Max cushioning in both the heel and forefoot of sneakers like the Air Max 95 running shoe. The logical next step was visible Air Max cushioning throughout the entire sole. One of the first sneakers to feature this technology was the Air Ubiquitous Max.

Created for football star, Jerry Rice and boxer, Roy Jones, Jr., the Ubiquitous Max was a cross trainer designed for the two athletes’ most rigorous workouts. “Ubiquitous” literally means “everywhere,” or “all around,” and that’s exactly where the Air cushioning could be seen and felt.

Featuring synthetic leather and a breathable mesh upper, the Ubiquitous boasted the first anatomically correct dual-pressure full-length Air-Sole unit. It also sported a Phylon midsole wrap reinforced with an injection molded TPU shield, and the carbon rubber outsole with forefoot grooves added flexibility.

Nike Air Ubiquitous Max - TBT

It was truly a revolutionary shoe, so the transition from old-school phone numbers to new-school email addresses in the Nike ads made sense. In the top right corner of the Ubiquitous Max print ad, the email read, “rjones@ringyobell.com.” This email was so goofy, it appeared Nike didn’t take the email phenomenon too seriously. As Nike revealed more email ads, they used similar funny addresses, such as “garyp@dyoazup.com” for the Air Zoom Hawk Flight, and “penny@breakudown.com” for the Air Foamposite One.

Once again, Nike was ahead of the game in terms of technological breakthroughs, and they were adapting to the changing methods of advertising and communication (even if they didn’t quite buy into them yet). The ad for the Ubiquitous was still relatively simple – it was just a photo of the sneaker in a gym. The statement was clear, though. This was a groundbreaking advance in terms of Air cushioning, and it required a groundbreaking method of sharing the message. 20 years later, Nike is still designing shoes with a very similar full-length visible Air Sole unit. Incredibly, the Ubiquitous Max has yet to retro though. Since other early full-length Air models have enjoyed a renaissance over the past few years, one can only hope that the Ubiquitous Max will be able to enjoy one as well.

We all know one of the best things about athleisure style is how you can wear it almost 24/7. This summer, don’t just turn to bathing suit cover ups, dresses and strappy shoes when you head to the beach or pool. Nike, adidas Originals and PUMA have sporty looks that will keep you cool and casual. 

adidas Originals Slim Shorts 3

The adidas Originals Slim Shorts are a perfect substitution for those trips to the water. Whether you’re headed to a party, family gathering or taking a jog, they’re comfy and a flattering fit at mid-waist.

Nike Romper on model

Nike is also bringing options to the table with their Nike Sportswear Gym Vintage Romper. A one piece to throw over any bathing suit. Soft, breathable material make this a perfect option for those warmer days.

Women's Slides

What’s a day by some water without proper slides? The adidas adilette, PUMA Fenty Bow and Nike Benassi are the perfect transition from sneaks to sandals and the slip-on design can never go wrong at the pool or beach.
