Two Different UNDEFEATED x Nike Collections Are Arriving In 2019

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.

The fact that Nike and UNDEFEATED were potentially working together on a Kobe 4 Proto Collection was first reported on the first day of 2019. As of now, it is somewhat certain that the collection will indeed hit the shelves along with Air Jordan releases 2019 in August, probably around Mamba Day. It will reportedly include three different colorways, one of which was recently worn by DeMar DeRozan during a game, as you can see above. This one appears to have glossy uppers that are mostly dressed up in a Teal hue, while featuring Black- and Team Orange-colored detailing, along with plain White soles.

The second upcoming collaboration between Nike and UNDEFEATED, which was revealed back in February this year, revolves around the Air Max 90. While there are no photos of the actual sneakers, the image above by PY_RATES™ (@py_rates) offers some insight. Apparently, the collection will include eight different colorways, two of which will also be available in both pre-school and toddler sizes as well. Out of these eight iterations, four will have Black-colored uppers while the other four will have plain White uppers, and they will all also feature contrasting, vibrant accents. This entire Nike x UNDEFEATED Air Max 90 Collection will arrive at retailers during Fall 2019.

A Closer Look At Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 6 From Before Super Bowl LII

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.

Coincidentally, the Air Jordan 6 colorway featured here was first worn by Travis Scott days prior to his performance at last year’s Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show. Big Boi and Travis Scott were the two special guests who performed alongside Maroon 5 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3rd, 2019. It was the first time that Travis Scott performed at a Super Bowl halftime show. In honor of SpongeBob SquarePants’ creator Stephen Hillenburg, who had passed away on November 26th, 2018, Travis Scott was introduced by an animated footage from the Nickelodeon cartoon. He performed “Sicko Mode,” the second single from his Astroworld studio album.

You can now get a much closer look at the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6. In fact, you can even see the rear end of the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1. Even though it is not entirely visible, you can see that the Air Jordan 6’s uppers are dressed up in a Medium Olive shade, while Black can be spotted over the inner lining, midsoles and tongues. University Red makes an appearance over the heel loops, lace locks, and the “Jumpman” branding on the tongues. While you cannot see it in the photo above, Travis Scott’s “Cactus Jack” logo will also be embroidered on the heels.

A release date has still not been announced, but you may expect the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack” to make its retail debut among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 during summer.

Release Reminder ~ The Air Jordan 11 Low “Navy Snakeskin” Is Available

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

adidas’ New FUTURECRAFT.LOOP Running Shoe Is 100% Recyclable

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.

This New Low-Top Jordan Zero Gravity Model Is Arriving In Summer 2019

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.

Last year, Jordan Brand also introduced the Flyknit Elevation 23, which is another model that is not a part of the signature Air Jordan line. Jordan Brand apparently borrowed Nike’s Flyknit technology and used the Air Jordan 6 as the base to design this modernized variation. A unique aspect of this iteration was that each time Jordan Brand released a colorway, the branding it featured on its tongues was borrowed from another Air Jordan model. For instance, when it debuted, that branding that appeared on its tongues has originally been seen on those of the Air Jordan 14. Similarly, the next colorway borrowed the Air Jordan 7’s tongue branding.

If you feel that the Jordan Zero Gravity looks familiar, it is simply because it kind of resembles the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2. More specifically, its forefoot overlays appear to have the same shape. Despite being a low-top sneaker silhouette though, the Zero Gravity seems to have quite the detailed mesh uppers, which you can see have been split into Yellow, White and Fuchsia, from the toeboxes towards the heels. Its heel and tongue tabs are entirely covered in an equally bright Orange shade, while little Orange-colored “Jumpman” logos can be spotted on the tongues. Last but not least, its plain White soles are covered in multicolored speckles.

Considering that summer is getting near with each passing day, you may expect the Jordan Zero Gravity to make its retail debut among the Air Jordan releases 2019 in the coming weeks.

This Light Cream-Colored Jordan Apex-React Is Arriving Soon In 2019

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.

In the case of the Jordan Apex-React, Jordan Brand seems to have designed it by blending together both iconic and modern design elements. For its uppers, Jordan Brand borrowed the Flyknit technology from Nike, as a result of which they are breathable, lightweight, stretchy and supportive. Each of its heels also features a strap that secures the wearer’s feet within the Apex-React, ensuring a snug fit and making the sneakers more stable. Its React cushioning has also been borrowed from Nike and it happens to be extremely lightweight and responsive, while its soles have rubber pods and a very elaborate traction pattern underneath them for improved gripping.

It seems that the Jordan Apex-React will be debuting among the upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 in the colorway you see here. Earlier this month, Jordan Brand also revealed a “Triple Black” colorway, which may also end up hitting the shelves in the coming weeks. The colorway you see here is far lighter, namely because its Flyknit uppers and tongues are covered in a Light Cream shade, while Bio Beige appears over its heel straps. University Red can also be spotted over its heel and tongue tabs, and in the form of stitching on the strap. Reflective Silver-colored detailing can be spotted too, while its soles are plain Sail-colored.

The Air Jordan 1 High “Dynamic Yellow” Features A Deconstructed Look

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.

A year later, Jordan Brand once again released the Air Jordan 1 Deconstructed for Easter, this time in two pastel colorways that hit the shelves back in Spring 2017 and retailed at a price of $123 each. Of course, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Dynamic Yellow” is not as deconstructed; rather it is more comparable to OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 releases. It was first revealed back in April 2017 that Virgil Abloh was collaborating with Jordan Brand and had designed quite an avant-garde rendition of the Air Jordan 1, which also featured several deconstructed panels. He used the Air Jordan 1 “Chicago” as the base.

The Air Jordan 1 “Dynamic Yellow” is not as avant-garde either, but there is certainly something deconstructed about it. That includes the contrasting University Red-stitching that is exposed and visible throughout. More specifically though, the Nike “Swoosh” logo on the left side of each shoe is missing, as if it has been ripped off, with only the stitching signifying its outline. The rest of its uppers are dressed up in a balanced combination of Black and White, using the “Black Toe” color blocking. Last but not least, the Dynamic Yellow shade it gets its nickname from covers the other two “Swoosh” logos that are still there.
