Air Jordan V Grape Meets Nike SB Dunk

April 14th, 2015 By


Black Sheep Skate Shop of Charlotte, North Carolina has previewed an upcoming sneaker with an inspiration that ties together various elements just about as smoothly as any we’ve seen. This Nike SB Dunk incorporates a nod to the original Air Jordan V White/Grape Ice-New Emerald colorway from 1990, the 30th anniversary of both the Air Jordan and Nike Dunk line, a shout to the “Black Grape” V released in June 2013, and a salute to the Michael Jordan-owned Charlotte Hornets.

Air Jordan Retro Restock at Foot Locker this April 19th

April 16th, 2014 By

If you have a size 15 or larger, then this weekend might just be one of the best weekends in history for you to grab all of those Air Jordan Retros you may have missed out on the past. After the announcement of the massive Eastbay restock and then the dismal news that all those sneakers would be exclusive to 15+ sizes besides the Air Jordan 6 “White/Infrared” and Air Jordan 3 “Dark Powder Blue”, it looks like Foot Locker will be getting in on the action as well. While most of the silhouettes featured are the same, Foot Locker didn’t go in depth as to what colorways would be featured, but you can grab all of your information via the Foot Locker release date page. So is this good news? Stay tuned for more and know you can grab all of your release date needs via our Jordan Release Date page.

Eastbay Plans Massive Restock of Air Jordan Retros for April 19th

April 14th, 2014 By

We’ve seen a number of enticing retro restocks this year for Air Jordans, whether it be that Final Four celebratory weekend release or even the opening of Jordan Brand’s Flight 23 Flagship store. Now Eastbay is getting in on the action with possibly the largest restock ever of retro Air Jordans for this upcoming weekend on April 19th. Ranging from the classic Air Jordan 1 “Bred” and Air Jordan 1 “Royal”, a number of Air Jordan 4s, and the newer iterations of the Air Jordan 10, it is definitely something to get excited about. We’ve outlined all of the pairs returning in this web only release, so be sure to get with us after the click and let us know if you plan on grabbing any of these pairs come April 19th, 2014.

Edit: According to Eastbay, most of the sneakers being restocked will be sizes 15 and up. Up to this point, they have also stated that the Air Jordan 6 “White/Infrared” and Air Jordan 3 “Dark Powder Blue” will be the only retros available in a full men’s size run. “The rest will be 15 or larger.”

Vintage Gear: “Breakfast of Champions” Jordan x Wheaties T-Shirt

February 6th, 2014 By

Wheaties has had a long-standing history of putting athletes on the front of their cereal boxes (in fact, the early morning staple has been the “Breakfast of Champions” since Lou Gehrig was featured on the box back in 1934). But can you guess who has the most cereal boxes in the history of the brand? Michael Jordan tops the list with a total of 18, so it was only right for Nike and Wheaties to collaborate on a t-shirt to mark one of the more famous occasions as a give away with a purchase of a box of cereal (the one that featured MJ soaring to the hoop in all of his Jordan ‘Flight’ gear in that Air Jordan 5 “Grape” colorway). Apparently the shirt was also sold in stores, since today’s vintage gear is a red version of the tee complete with the tag still attached that features a cartoon on the front complete with toast popping out of the toaster. What do you think of this rare find? Hit the gallery for a better look and know that you can grab this rare find today via ianstoysnstuff on eBay.

Air Jordan 5: “Mech V” Customs by Sekure D

October 25th, 2013 By

Earlier this week we were graced with another Sekure D custom using his signature robot print in a collaboration with JBF Customs for a “Cobra Commander” look. Today we see the Australian customizer back at it again, using the Air Jordan V “Grape” as his canvas, and while he keeps the Hornets-esque color schemes atop the tongue and midsole, the rest of the silhouette is hit with those comic-book robot arms in two different contrasting grays  He also decided to redo the ’23’ on the back heel panel while an aquamarine speckled print contrasts the mechanical look in the front. Continue reading to see the full images of this crazy custom and let us know where you think this ranks among Sekure D’s recent work.

Vintage Gear: Air Jordan 5 “Grape” Warm-Up Suit

October 8th, 2013 By

The Air Jordan 5 “Grape” finally got its retro this past year, and it even warranted a surprising unofficial away iteration in the Air Jordan 5 “Black Grape”. Known as the lifestyle colorway of Jordan’s fifth signature when it first released, the shoe came complete with a matching track suit that was famously featured on a Wheaties box and in today’s vintage gear we bring you an original version of the baggy nylon styling. While we can’t guarantee that eating the cereal while wearing it in the morning will allow you to show up at a court this fall and play like Mike, it will definitely score you some points for your dedication to nostalgia. Hit the gallery for a full view of this rare find and pick it up today from soleair23 on eBay.

Hulk Hogan Shows Off More of His Air Jordan Collection

September 25th, 2013 By

Celebrities live in a weird world where unimaginable pairings and connections happen that nobody would ever think would fit together – for example Hulk Hogan got the Jordan Brand connect from Fat Joe. It looks like Hulk Hogan’s affinity for the Jumpman is only growing too as he took to Twitter to look for which pair he should wear for the day. What were his options? A solid grouping of the Air Jordan V “Fire Red”, Air Jordan VIII “Playoffs”, Air Jordan V “Grape”, but it was the Air Jordan XIII “He Got Game” that ended up on the Hulkster’s feet. It was a reasonable decision considering Hulk Hogan could be the Jesus Shuttlesworth of professional wrestling. Hit the gallery for a better look and let us know what you think of his selection.

Air Jordan V “Grape” Socks

May 30th, 2013 By

The Air Jordan V “Grape” socks were an inevitability, really. Usually the retro booties made to match with the hotter colorways in the retro lineup of Jordans precede the sneaker, but this time we had to wait till they had come and gone to get our hands on the sock style. See the full photos of the Air Jordan V “Grape” looking sock style below and then get them from Nikestore.
