Jordans Daily Interviews Jordan CP3.VI Designer Andre Doxey

October 2nd, 2012 By

Over the past week or so Jordans Daily has brought you no shortage of exclusives with respect to the upcoming Jordan Brand catalog, having been invited out to an exclusive media event in NYC previewing exactly what JB is cooking up for the coming months. We showed you apparel and footwear, and even took the time to get some insights from behind the scenes design-wise with Jordan Melo M9 design Justin Taylor.

Of course what would that be without a similar look at Jordan Brand’s other marquee name at the moment Chris Paul? He’s sort of in the same situation as Melo what with the whole back-story of him now playing in a much bigger market after an NBA career established in a smaller city. And even in the shadows of the Lakers he’s managed to make the Clippers an exciting club once again, him and Blake Griffin becoming highlight reel regulars and the squad making its way to the playoffs for the first time in 6 years. And there’s that whole gold medal thing.

All this excitement that will culminate sneaker-wise in the Jordan CP3.VI, Chris Paul’s sixth signature sneaker with Team Jordan. The model looks to uphold the fine tradition of fast design for Paul, one of the games most agile players, upgrading the ever important traction package on bottom and again embedding the shoe with a wealth of winks and nods to his personal history. Click through to check out our exclusive sit down with Jordan Brand global footwear design director Andre Doxey, shots of the upcoming Jordan CP3.VI, and some quick tech specs as well.

Jordans Daily Interviews Jordan Melo M9 Designer Justin Taylor

September 27th, 2012 By

With just about a year and a half under our belts Jordans Daily has already gained the attention of the house that Michael built, being invited out this week to a special showing of upcoming Jordan Brand footwear and apparel out in NYC. During the media event we were able to touch bases with a few of the foremost thinkers at the brand in terms of design, chopping it up with the folks who have put their blood, sweat, and tears into creating the on-court designs for superstars like Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul.

The former has quite a year ahead of him, with Melo coming off of a gold medal win and an impressive showing during the 2012 NBA Playoffs. Of course the minds at Jordan Brand are very much striking while the iron is hot, with two new sneakers waiting in the wings to outfit Anthony for the trials that the 2012-13 NBA season has in store. First is the Jordan Melo M8 advance, a stepping stone pair that bridges the gap between his eighth and ninth signature models with the brand. The innovative Hyperfuse equipped pair debuted at Olympics this year and will serve Melo for the start of the season (with another retail drop on tap for October 17th). After that it’s the Jordan Melo M9, multi-layered performance beast of a shoe featuring an Ironman armor suit inspired construction and a boat load of ‘energy’ colorways on the way.

Giving you a behind the scenes look at the next steps of the Jordan Melo line is this exclusive interview with Justin Taylor, the man behind much of the recent innovations in Carmelo Anthony’s signature line (and a host of other JB models as well). Click through with us to read the full piece and check out the detailed gallery of upcoming release and tech specs.

Tom Sachs x Jordan Brand for NIKECraft

May 22nd, 2012 By

You already know how rare it is for Jordan Brand to get together with outside entities, only branching out every once in a while to let others work with their silhouettes. Sort of in the same vein as Dave White’s Air Jordan 1 creations (albeit much more limited) comes a couple pairs from artist Tom Sachs, who recently created the wide-ranging NIKECraft collection, certain pieces of which were made available to the public. What wasn’t made available to the public, much less really even showed off, were the Air Jordan models he worked with:the Air Jordan Alpha 1 and the Jordan BCT Low. Both sneakers get the spacey treatment characteristic of the pack, with NASA branding on back and a pearly white astronautical finish. Click through for these Jordans Daily exclusive shots of the Tom Sachs x Air Jordan for NIKECraft, a couple of pairs that we probably won’t see again any time soon.

Jordans Daily History Lesson: Michael Jordan at the All-Star Game

February 23rd, 2012 By

With NBA All-Star Weekend kicking off tomorrow night, we thought we’d take a look back at the event that Michael Jordan was a part of 14 times throughout his career. Michael’s first All-Star Game appearance came in 1985 in Indianapolis in what would be known as the “freeze out” game due to Isaiah Thomas’ jealousy toward the rookie sensation. The effects of said “freeze out” showed as Michael would only score 7 points on 2-9 shooting. Jordan would miss the 1986 festivities due to a foot injury that kept him sidelined for most of the season, but would come back with a vengeance in ’87 as he won the Slam Dunk Contest for the first time of his career. He would go on to capture his first All-Star Game MVP in 1988 in front of the hometown Chicago crowd in a dazzling display of showmanship by scoring 40 points and taking home the Slam Dunk Championship for the second year in a row. Michael would continue to put on a great show for the crowd until his last All-Star Game in 1993 in which he retired following the end of the Chicago Bulls’ third consecutive championship victory.

Michael’s retirement was short lived and like his retirement, so was his absence from the All-Star festivities. In his first full season of basketball following retirement, Michael made his tenth starting appearance and would take home the MVP after scoring 20 points in 22 minutes of play. He’d win his last MVP in New York City against a young Kobe Bryant and would play his last All-Star Game overall in 2003 which would have ended perfectly if not for a Jermaine O’Neal foul. In addition to three MVP awards in 13 All-Star appearances, Michael averaged 20.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists per contest. Although Jordan won’t be on the court this weekend in Orlando, his influence will be there as players who looked up to him growing up will take their turn at All-Star greatness.

Following his arrival to the NBA, Michael Jordan was undecided on a shoe contract until Sonny Vaccaro convinced him to sign with Nike and would go on to put the company in a position it has yet to relinquish.
