The Air Jordan 1 colorway inspired by Michael Jordan‘s Sports Illustrated cover from 1984 will be among December’s Air Jordan releases 2018. Michael Jordan did some exceptional and remarkable things during his rookie season as a member of the Chicago Bulls. Back in May 1985, the NBA even named him the Rookie of the Year. This year, Jordan Brand even released an Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Rookie of the Year” colorway on November 17th, 2018. It drew inspiration from the shirt Michael Jordan wore during his acceptance speech. Jordan Brand again drew inspiration from his rookie season for this upcoming Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG colorway.
A brand new colorway of Russell Westbrook‘s third lifestyle sneaker model recently joined last month’s Air Jordan releases 2018. It was quite surprising when the Jordan Westbrook 0 was first unveiled back in 2015, simply due to the fact that it was a lifestyle shoe rather than a basketball sneaker that Russell could actually wear on the court. At the same time, it also made sense considering Russell Westbrook’s natural sense of style. Overall, the Westbrook 0’s silhouette resembles that of the Air Jordan 1 and lace eyelets were seemingly inspired by the Air Jordan 11. Of course, Russell Westbrook now has his own signature basketball sneaker too.
Following the retail debut of the “Christ The King (CTK)” PE, the Nike Zoom LeBron 3 is arriving in another original (OG) colorway. Earlier this year, rumors began circulating that Nike was bringing back the Zoom LeBron 3 “Christ The King” PE and it would actually hit the shelves. Back in 2006 when Nike first introduced this Player Exclusive colorway, only family and friends of LeBron James and other NBA players received a pair. The Zoom LeBron 3 Christ The King” was finally released on September 6th, 2018, although exclusively in New York City, where it retailed for $175 via the Nike SNKRS app.
When Kanye West returned to the studio in July 2017, he was spotted rocking a new adidas sneaker model somewhat resembling the Yeezy Runner. From that first look, it seemed to be equipped with the unique soles of the EQT Responsive, which was formerly named the KB8 3. By October that year, this model was revealed to be the adidas Yeezy Desert Rat 500. The very first Yeezy 500 colorway that was officially unveiled was “Blush” and it was quite similar to the colorway that recently made its retail debut. The adidas Yeezy Desert Rat 500 colorway that you see here is dubbed “Salt” and it is available now.
This Fall, the Nike Air Foamposite One “Habanero Red” made its retail debut on October 27th, 2018 at a price of $230. The Air Foamposite Pro also arrived at retailers earlier this month in a “Black Metallic Gold” colorway. As you can see, this is a nearly all-Black colorway, so its Foam shell uppers, inner lining, laces, overlays, pull tabs and rubber outsoles are all covered in Black. Metallic Gold can also be spotted over its carbon fiber midfoot plate, embroidered Nike “Swoosh” branding and the larger “Swoosh” emblem on the sides. The Air Foamposite Pro “Black Metallic Gold” retailed at a price of $230 on November 17th, 2018.
Foam shell uppers are typically associated with Nike’s Foamposite line. However, back in Fall 2010, Nike blended Foamposite with the Air Force 1, ultimately designing the Air Force 1 Foamposite. In addition to having foam shell uppers, the very first iteration of the Air Force 1 Foamposite featured 3M reflective material over its ankle straps. Additionally, its Foamposite uppers were covered in radiant Silver. Ever since, the Air Force 1 Foamposite has hit the shelves in a few different colorways, and has been a part of Nike’s 2013 Black History Month releases and the Air Force 1 XXX Anniversary Holiday Collection.
