Great news from the land of Air Jordan…on June 2 the Air Jordan 1 “AJKO” will be re-released in two new colorways , Black/Red and “Black Toe” … The last time the AJKO dropped I personally missed the boat on them. I am hoping that does not happen again, as with all sneaker heads , keeping abreast with the most up to date info is key!!!

There are somethings in life that you simply must have. When I saw that Nike was re-releasing the Air Jordan III’s in the “True Blue” colorway I think I started to actually shake. Clearly it doe not take much to get me excited. Now to put my sneaker fetish in perspective, I already have the Jordan III re-issues in the ” White/Cement” colorway, but the “True Blue” is just a great summer shoe and I must cop as soon as they are available!!
more from hypebeast below:
Having already been released in both black and white, the Air Jordan 3 can add one more colorway to its roster just in time for summer. Featuring the original box model, the retro sneaker is now available in a white/true blue combination with a primarily white leather upper and light blue strip around the midsole and inner lining. This model is expected to be available through select Nike stockists sometime around June!!!
I love it when a plan comes together, and no I am not referring to the A-TEAM movie (which I am hoping to see soon) But when I logged onto SoleCollector as I do everyday, my Jaw dropped when I saw this new trainer from the good folks at Nike , fully branded with the most famous logo in sports..The Interlocking NY. So yes once again my worlds collide with the greatest team in the World doing a collabo with the greatest sneaker brand in the universe.
But its the little details on this shoe that make it so hot and a must have for any Yankee fanatics like myself. The highlight of the shoe for me personally are the intricate details 0n the inner tongue of each foot. The left inner tongue lists the years of all 27 World Championships, the right has a quote near and dear to the heart of any true Yankee fan…the famous words of Joe DiMaggio “I WANT TO THANK THE GOOD LORD FOR MAKING ME A YANKEE”…..
Of course the rub here is that these apparently are not available to the general public, but I have my top notch sneaker guru (shout out to LESTER @ WEST NYC) on the case.
So Dope I almost wanna cry.

Last year, Nike produced an Air Trainer 1 for the New York Yankees. That love was extended when they also produced a special PE pair for Yankees hurler Chien Ming Wang. Seven months after the Bronx Bombers won their 27th World Series championship, we get our eyes on an Air Max Trainer 1+ that was exclusively produced for the team.
The shoes feature a grey base with 3M reflective paneling on the heel and forefoot. Navy blue accents are seen on the inner liner, Flywire panels, inner liner, and 360 Air unit. Several instances of Yankees branding make this shoe unique. On the lateral heel, a circular Yankees logo patch is embroidered on the 3M panel. New York is stitched on the back heels of the shoes. The front of the tongue badges display classic Yankee print and a custom “27″ logo. The inner tongue badge of the left shoe lists the Yankee championship years, while the right reads a quote from the great Joe DiMaggio. Team logo can also be seen on the footbed. This pair is said to have been made exclusively for the Yankees, with no plans to release them to the general public.
It makes sense that the the worlds greatest pound for pound boxer has a dedicated pair of Nike Trainers that are just dope!
The good folks at Nike nail it again with great colorways and I am sure what is a very functional training shoe.
With the previous three Manny Pacquiao Nike Training releases reaching a frenzy far beyond most anyone’s expectations, Nike has just released yet another “Pac Man” sneaker in the Trainer SC 2010 Low.
In the traditional flag colors of Manny’s homeland, the Philippines, the Trainer SC 2010 features a synthetic leather and mesh upper with Flywire strands providing extra support and reinforcement. Cushioning comes by way of a heel Max Air unit, which nicely complements the outsole DiamondFLX groove pattern. Retail price is $110.
I had the pleasure this weekend of finally hitting the Upper West Side and visiting WEST. WEST NYC is a great sneaker boutique which has a serious selection of exclusives and just dope shit. WEST does not simply stop with the kicks, they carry plenty of the lines I like including Play Clothes, Crooks N Castles etc….. (You get the idea)
The Layout is dope, the soundtrack of choice is golden era hip-hop and of course some new classics as well.
The Decor of West certainly tugs on the heart strings of any faithful UPPER WEST SIDER, with historical images of famous and notorious upper west natives.
If West existed when I was growing up on the UWS , I am sure I would be there daily simply to chill.
If your uptown on the WEST SIDE, do not miss WEST.
….and yes I copped the Jordan 1 Retro Alpha in the Black/Red Colorway ( I dont care who knows!!)
