• First Look at Summer’s New Best Friend, the Jordan Eclipse

    In their latest push for shoes differentiating themselves from the basketball spectrum, Jordan Brand has announced the release of a new casual style shoe, called the The Jordan Eclipse, a sportswear shoe designed with comfort and flexibility being the two main focus points. The shoe is lightweight and breathable making it the quintessential summer day shoe. From the design of the shoe, you can tell the Jordan team took notice of the distinguishable styles between their traditional bulky basketball shoe and a simpler, sleeker upper with a minimalist lower. Unlike traditional footwear design, the shoe features a deconstructed textile upper allowing for lightweight breathability using a cross hatch patten, while the Neoprene tongue provides a comfortable fit, similar to the feel of a Nike Huarache. The shoe will be available at Jordan.com and at select retailers on April 1 for a suggested retail price of $110.      

  • Michael Jordan Plays Golf Like a 1920’s Mob Boss

    Michael Jordan can do whatever we wants, see. If his Air-ness wants to play golf chewing down on an enormous stogie, he can, see. And don’t get wise about telling him otherwise or you’ll be taking a dirt nap with that no good rat Horace Grant. Jordan enjoys a good day out on the course as much as the next guy, but he’s been making waves when this video surfaced of him teeing off at the Derek Jeter Celebrity Invitational in Las Vegas with a rather large cigar, making him a true boss of bosses. Sure he could’ve paid Ray Allen or Jeter a cool million to hold it while he tees off, but why when he could just bite down and drive a ball 300 yards?

  • Earliest NBA Game-worn Michael Jordan Sneakers To Be Auctioned

    In 1984, Micheal Jordan was a great player, far from being dubbed the greatest of all time, but that didn’t stop then Lakers ball boy Khalid Ali from asking Jordan for his shoes after warmups one game. Ali has now consigned the earliest pair of game worn sneakers to SCP Auctions. During the 1984-85 season the 15 year-old Ali had inquired about the shoes during a game against the Chicago Bulls. The pair Ali inquired about were red, white and black, the infamous pair of what would become the first Air Jordans, but Jordan had switched the sneakers for a different color shoe, an all white sneaker with a red upper and swoosh. ESPN Notes “People obsess over game-worn Jordans and there’s definite value to the fact that these are the earliest ones that have surfaced,” said SCP Auctions vice president Dan Imler said. Imler said he could see the shoes drawing bids past the $50,000. In 2013, a pair of shoes Jordan wore during the infamous “Flu Game,” also acquired by a ballboy, sold for $104,765, a record price paid for a pair of game-used shoes in any sport. A pair of shoes that Jordan wore in his rookie season sold for $31,070, also in more »

  • Jordan Goes All in With ‘Flight Runner 2′ Sneakers

    The Jordan Brand is taking a new approach to running. While basic running shoes are crafter with linear movement in mind Jordan is taking a new direction. The multidirectional flexibility of the Jordan Flight Runner 2 prepares athletes for any kind of workout, including running, sprints and distance, but is equally supportive for building multidirectional athleticism. Think cross training with a heavy compliment to running. The interesting three direction Flight Flex midsole pattern is created to provide excellent cushioning and support while also allowing flex in all directions, bringing a more natural feeling to the versatile shoe. The show takes techinical support from Nike’s Flywire technology, while adding it’s own element of lightweight, unique flex sole. The Flight Runner 2 is lightweight, but also feels durable and secure around your foot, a minimalist shoe with all the bells and whistles of Nike’s advanced technology. If you’re in the market for a new all purpose training shoe, that offers linear and lateral support the FR2 could be the best shoe on the market that’s not a trainer. Available this February at Jordan.
