Amidst upcoming adidas and Air Jordan releases 2019, Nike and apparel brand UNDEFEATED have teamed up to release two different collections. Last year, Nike celebrated Mamba Day on August 24th, 2018 by teaming up with UNDEFEATED to release a Kobe Proto PE Pack. The pack included four different colorways of the Nike Kobe Proto, all of which could only be copped from select UNDEFEATED locations that were revealed via Nike SNKRS Pass. One of them was even dressed up in the color scheme of the Los Angeles Lakers. It seems Nike and UNDEFEATED are collaborating once again for Mamba Day 2019, this time releasing a Kobe 4 Proto Collection.
Travis Scott recently provided an up-close preview of his Air Jordan 6 colorway that will be among next month’s Air Jordan releases 2019. Travis Scott seems to have been rather busy as of late. He recently teamed up with SZA and The Weeknd to sing a song titled “Power Is Power,” which is essential Jon Snow’s theme song as a part of HBO’s Game of Thrones companion music album. In other (not-so-favorable) news, a court has ordered Travis Scott to pay almost $400,000 to a Minneapolis-based promotion company for a gig he canceled on the day of the Super Bowl LIII.
Here is a reminder that the long-awaited Air Jordan 11 Low “Navy Snakeskin” has finally returned to joined current Air Jordan releases 2019. The Air Jordan 11 Low was recently discussed in this post. To refresh your memory, the colorway first made its retail debut back in 2001. Its uppers are made up of plain White leather instead of ballistic mesh, and its inner lining, laces and midsoles are plain White too. It gets its nickname from the Navy Blue hue covering its mudguards, which feature the snakeskin texture rather than being made up of patent leather. It is also equipped with icy, translucent outsoles with a Blue shade. Continue reading Release Reminder ~ The Air Jordan 11 Low “Navy Snakeskin” Is Available
Amidst upcoming Nike and Air Jordan releases 2019, adidas and Parley for the Oceans have designed a 100% recyclable performance running shoe. For a while now, adidas has been working with Parley for the Oceans to minimize plastic waste in the oceans. Back in 2015, they introduced the world’s shoe having uppers completely made up of recycled ocean gillnets and plastic. 50 pairs of concept and each pair could only be acquired via participation in an Instagram-based competition. In 2019, adidas is aiming to use Ocean Plastic in the production of “11 million pairs of shoes” and by 2024, they will be using “only recycled polyester” in all products.
It seems that Jordan Brand is going to be introducing a brand new sneaker models along with all the Air Jordan releases 2019 this summer. It is certainly not a common occurrence for Jordan Brand to introduce a new basketball sneaker model that is not a part of their signature Air Jordan line. In fact, you probably cannot even recall the last time Jordan Brand unveiled such a model. Most recently, it happened this very year on January 10th, 2019 when Russell Westbrook’s Why Not Zer0.2 debuted. This new model named the Jordan Zero Gravity seems to be potentially inspired by it and even has a similar name.
Air Jordan releases 2019 set to make their retail debut in the coming weeks will also include this new colorway of the Jordan Apex-React. Unveiled last year, the Jordan Apex-React comes equipped with Jordan Brand’s Flight Utility design and technology, which were first introduced last year with the debut of the Air Jordan 33. Flight Utility has been referred to as the future of Jordan Brand’s design, which will now emphasize more on functionality and innovation, while still retaining their core DNA. One look at the Jordan Apex-React, or even the Proto-Max 720 or the Proto-React, makes it obvious that Jordan Brand has adopted a new design ethos.
You may now get a better look at the Air Jordan 1 “Dynamic Yellow,” which will be among the Air Jordan releases 2019 in the coming months. Back in 2016, the Air Jordan 1 High got completely deconstructed. It was the first time that the Air Jordan 1 High had undergone such an extreme transformation. The Air Jordan 1 High Deconstructed was a minimalistic variation that had one-piece uppers with no overlays at all. Its stripped down uppers merely featured stitching in places where the overlays would have been to make it more distinguishable. The Air Jordan 1 High Deconstructed made its retail in a “Black/Sail” and “Ivory/White” colorway.
