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.

Chris Paul’s CP3.XII PE Pays Tribute To Tiger Woods’ Masters Victory

Despite not joining the Air Jordan releases 2019, Chris Paul’s new Jordan CP3.XII PE pays tribute to Tiger Woods’ Masters Tournament victory. On April 14th, Tiger Woods was victorious in one of professional golf’s four major championship tournaments, winning the Masters title for the fifth time. This was also Tiger’s 15th major tournament victory as well. With his victory, Tiger Woods has made quite a remarkable comeback, perhaps the greatest in the history of the sport. Considering that Tiger happens to be a good friend of Chris Paul, it is not surprising that the latter was recently spotted rocking the Jordan CP3.XII PE you see here.

Tiger Woods first wore the signature Augusta National green sports coat after winning the Masters championship back in 1997. It was one of the most thrilling moments in the history of professional golf and Tiger Woods had made history. While Tiger Woods has long been regarded as a legend in the sport, the last time he won a Masters title was back in 2005, so his recent comeback was nothing short of being spectacular. Both Barack Obama and President Donald Trump congratulated Tiger for his historic win, while the latter will even be awarding him with Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Jordan CP3.XII PE colorway, which Chris Paul recently laced up in, pays tribute to Tiger Woods in several ways. Coincidentally, Chris was wearing this pair as his team, the Houston Rockets, defeated the Utah Jazz with a score of 122-90. Foremost, the fact that its uppers are almost entirely covered in Red is a reference to the color of the shirts that Tiger has become known for wearing on Sundays. Another obvious reference is the faux tiger fur that can be spotted over the heel and lateral midfoot of each shoe. Of course, this PE will not be available as a part of upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019.

This Latest Jordan Legacy 312 Low Colorway Sports A Wintery Look

The latest colorway of Don C’s Jordan Legacy 312 Low, which will be among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019, seems to be winter-themed. Under his Just Don streetwear label, Don Crawley (Don C) has been collaborating with Jordan Brand since 2013. It all started with the Just Don x Jordan Brand “Just Jordan” Pack for charity, honoring Black History Month. The pack included an Air Jordan 1 and a snapback hat, both designed by Don C. He later designed several luxurious, quilted Air Jordan 2 iterations that became tremendously popular. No one would have imagined though that he would end up having his own signature Jordan sneaker model.

After Spike Lee, Don C is the second person to have collaborated with Jordan Brand and designed a brand new sneaker model, despite not being an athlete. Despite initial backlash, sneakerheads quickly warmed up to the Jordan Legacy 312 since its debut in the Summer of 2018. Its Legacy 312 name is a reference to the fact that Don C used the Air Jordan 1 as its base, adding the Air Jordan 3’s elephant print overlays and heel panels and the Air Alpha Force Low’s forefoot strap onto it. The very first photo of the Jordan Legacy 312 Low surfaced online in December 2018, but debuted earlier this year.

Apparently this colorway of the Jordan Legacy 312 is bidding farewell to winter. Both the overlays and underlays of its uppers appear to be made up of pebbled leather, which is entirely covered dressed up in the Pale Blue hue it gets its nickname from. The inner lining, forefoot straps, Nike “Swoosh” logos and its tongues are covered in Black. Carolina Blue can be spotted over all of the branding and the rear of the midsoles, while the rest of the soles are plain White. Despite a lack of release details, this colorway will very soon arrive at select retailers and on Nike.com alongside upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019.

The Nike LeBron 3 Is Arriving In The OG “Home” Colorway In April 2019

Alongside upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019, Nike will be dropping the LeBron 3 “Home,” which is actually an OG colorway from 2005. You might be wondering how this could be an original colorway considering that the LeBron 3 just made its retail debut last year in the “Christ The King” colorway, but that is only partially true. With the exception of the “China Edition,” the “Home” colorway was actually the debut iteration of the Zoom LeBron III. It originally hit the shelves on November 12th, 2005 and retailed at a price of $125. The LeBron 3 can be regarded as a modern day reincarnation of the Zoom LeBron III.

The Zoom LeBron III was an extremely stable basketball sneaker as it was equipped with carbon-fiber shanks that were paired with a Pebax shell “foot-bucket” in each shoe. The Pebax shell also offered support to and reinforced its almost full-length Zoom Air unit, so even heavier basketball players could comfortably and securely play in it. Its exterior straps were not completely stitched, so the sneaker moved according to the wearer’s feet. Last but not least, its traction was even better than its predecessor due to the deep, longitudinal grooves in its rubber outsoles. The LeBron 3 is essentially the same sneaker, but more of a revived version.

The Nike LeBron 3 “Home” looks exactly like the original. Its leather uppers are still dressed up in the same Black and White combination. Namely, Black covers the upper half, the inner lining, laces and tongues with the “Lion Head” logo, while the lower half is plain White. Black can also be spotted around the heels and toeboxes, and over Nike “Swoosh logos and the little badge that features LeBron James’ branding. The only different between the original and this year’s version is the shade of red used. Instead of Varsity Red, the entire Zoom Air unit of each shoe is covered in Varsity Crimson, which is brighter.

The Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 Is Arriving In A Colorful “All-Star” Iteration

After its debut last month, Russell Westbrook’s Why Not Zer0.2 will join February’s Air Jordan releases 2019 in an “All-Star” colorway. The very first colorway of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 was dubbed “Future History,” which became available on January 10th, 2019 at a price of $125. After the multi-colored and vibrant “Future History,” the next iteration of the Why Not Zer0.2 that hit the shelves was relatively plain, dressed up in just Black and White, and was dubbed “The Family.” However, the upcoming “All-Star” colorway of the Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 is by far the most multi-colored and vibrant of them all to date.

Nike Is Releasing Another Original Colorway Of The Zoom LeBron 3

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.
