JUNE SNEAKER DROPS
KID'S AJ1 RETRO HIGH OG (GS) "STAGE HAZE"
On the foundational sneaker that started it all, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG ‘Stage Haze’ boasts neutral tones. The upper has a white leather base with a grey suede heel overlay and a cracked black leather forefoot overlay. The trademark Swoosh and a classic Wings emblem imprinted on the lateral ankle with matching black accents. On the woven tongue tag, Nike branding is highlighted in Bleached Coral for a slight pop of colour. A rubber cupsole with white sidewalls and a grey rubber outsole supports the high-top.
KID'S AIR JORDAN 1 RETRO HIGH OG (GS) "HERITAGE"
Culture Kings is releasing the iconic retro style in the Heritage yet again, this time in Grade School sizing. Comfortable, classic design is the cornerstone of iconic kicks like the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG 'Heritage'. These Chicago-inspired shoes pay homage to MJ's heritage and have been remastered for the modern sneakerhead featuring genuine leather at the upper and a hidden Air-Sole unit in the heel for responsive, lightweight cushioning.
KID'S NIKE DUNK LOW "CHLOROPHYLL"
Four leaf clovers, pots of gold, and the like are nowhere in sight, the design favouring a simple, three-toned look. Across the overlays and base, the pair utilises a dark and light shade of green, respectively, while the laces, Swoosh, and midsole opt for a neutral white finish. Finally, the branding across the tongue, insole, and heel round out the palette in complement to its coloured parts.
AIR JORDAN 5 RETRO "GREEN BEAN"
The fan favorite from 2006 is back in all its reflective retro glory. Its entirely Silver upper lights up at night with a reflective beam you can't miss. And during the day, its Green Bean accents on the Jumpman, lining, and midsole add flavor to an all-over Silver upper that otherwise keeps it muted and no-nonsense. Whether you want to shine when the cameras are bright or stay understated with some big pop after the lights go down, the Air Jordan 5 "Green Bean" stays true and progressive with its OG makeup and new-millennium style.
AIR JORDAN 6 RETRO "MIDNIGHT NAVY"
A colourway that's been in the vault for over 20 years is coming back strong this spring. Keeping to OG specs, the Air Jordan 6 'Midnight Navy' first released as a retro in 2000 is colour-blocked in a familiar fashion for fans of the AJ6. A clean, all-White premium-leather upper allows for a crisp juxtaposition with Midnight Navy accents on the midsole, embroidered Jumpman, heel piece and tongue. Its icy, translucent outsole finishes the style with a cool edge.
NIKE DUNK LOW RETRO SE "SUN CLUB"
Yet another installment of Nike’s Sun Club emerges in a Dunk Low. We’ve already seen a few variations of this concept; from the use of hemp-like materials to see-through Swoosh logos made of open mesh, the Sun Club is quite vast in its volume although the design is quite consistent.This newly revealed Dunk Low makes use of the canvas-like materials and an overlay presumably made with leather with recycled materials, making this a must cop!
AIR JORDAN 1 MID "COURT PURPLE"
Long ago, purple was the colourway of royalty. Certain monarchs forbade the colour to be worn by anyone but themselves, making it instantly recognisable as a prestigious, yet exclusive symbol of greatness. But times have changed. These OG Court Purple AJ1s are here for everyone to pay their respects to the legacy of the GOAT. With updated colour-blocking from last year's release, the shoe's classic shapes carry a more subtle mix of black and white accents, allowing the colour of royalty to speak nothing but facts: Nobody held court like MJ.
WOMEN'S AIR JORDAN 1 MID "DARK TEAL GREEN"
This Air Jordan 1 women’s exclusive iteration features a full leather upper with nylon tongues and mesh lining. The overlays are dressed in dark green, while the toe boxes, ankle collars, tongue labels and Swooshes come in a salmon-pink tone. The white midsoles and pink outsoles round off the footwear style. Take a closer look at the design below.
WOMEN'S AIR JORDAN 1 MID "SHADOW"
As the Jordan brand continues to empower and elevate their women’s line, the ladies are getting blessed with another exclusive of the Air Jordan 1 Mid that all types and genders will clamor for. The original “Shadow” colorway is back. While not exactly true to the OG as far as color placement goes, this pair is still close enough to make most people happy. Featuring an all-leather upper, black is the predominant color with grey accents throughout. The only break of color comes from the white midsole.
KID'S AIR JORDAN 1 MID (GS) "ARMORY NAVY"
The Air Jordan 1 Mid Shoe follows in the footsteps of greatness.The all-time classic design is updated with fresh colour pops and material combos to give it new identity.
AIR JORDAN 1 MID "LIGHT SMOKE GREY"
While not new to a “White/Light Smoke Grey/Black” color palette, the mid-top Air Jordan 1 has recently reinterpreted it yet again with this light smoke grey retro. “Colourless” smooth leather sets the stage for the titular tone across the model’s iconic paneling. Profile swooshes, branding on the tongue and lateral ankle and outsoles deviate from the light hues in favor of stark “Black” contrast
AIR JORDAN 4 RETRO "MILITARY BLACK"
The Air Jordan 4 ‘Military Black’, one of the most highly anticipated drops of recent memory. Jordan Brand kept true to the OG AJ4 colour-blocking for the ‘Military Black’ and essentially utilising the 1989 ‘Military Blue’ base however swapping the blue tones for black. Another notable difference between the two is the toebox which has opts for a slightly darker grey. Everything else remains the same, a white leather acts as the base making way for the usual wide mesh panels atop black backgrounds. There’s no Nike Air branding to be seen here! Jumpman logos adorn both the tongue and heel.
AIR JORDAN 1 MID "REVERSE BRED"
For 2022 with Air Jordan 1 Mids continuing to become more and more buzz-worthy, Jordan Brand is taking the classic “Bred” colorway and flipping it up. The Air Jordan 1 Mid Reverse Bred 2022 edition comes in a classic gym red, black and white mock up. Featuring a red-based leather upper with black accenting the toe box, Swoosh on the sides, back heel, ankle and laces. A red Wings logo, white midsole and red outsole finish things off.
KID'S AIR JORDAN 1 MID "BLUE MINT"
The newly-surfaced pair features a white smooth leather base as with some of the Air Jordan 1's most iconic styles. Overlays around the toe, along the tongue and near the collar, however, indulge in a navy blue makeover that complements the fresh mint hue that animates ankle flaps and lower heel panels. In kids exclusive sizing, the Nike Dunk-reminiscent pair is likely to join several wish-lists whenever it drops given its refreshing and cool makeup.
