Air Jordan 15 Release Date,Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne, the founders of Public School New York, have been the leading suppliers of New York City-based fashion for years now. In fact, PSNY has become somewhat of a fashion staple for New Yorkers ever since the brand was established back in 2008. Ever since, PSNY has combined upscale and urban every time they have worked on an all-Black rendition of a basketball sneaker. This month, Public School New York is celebrating its 10th anniversary of being at the core of New York fashion. This celebration actually coincided with the release of a Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection that includes Air Jordan 15 colorways.
These two sneakers from the Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection have already joined the most recent Jordan releases 2017. While the stocks may not have lasted, the suede PSNY x Air Jordan 15 and the woven PSNY x Air Jordan 15 might still be available for $225 and $190, respectively.
Both the Air Jordan 15 iterations included in the Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection feature a different, varying construction. The “Black” iteration features uppers made up of a combination of nubuck and suede. The “Olive” iteration features woven uppers. Apart from their overall construction, they are actually quite similar, such as the “PSNY” branding engraved into their rubberized heel wraps and their sculpted rubber midsoles with a herringbone pattern beneath the outsoles. Additionally, the tongue tabs of both iterations also have “WNL” printed over them, which stands for “Winner Never Lose.”
Apart from the two colorways of the Air Jordan 15, which are a part of the Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection, it turns out that another unconventional and unexpected variation was also designed. This particular variation was seen during PSNY’s New York Fashion Week runway show and unlike the other two iterations of the regular Air Jordan 15 silhouette; it actually looks like a boot. In fact, this variation was in the form of a knee-high boot with a zipper running down from the top down to its heels at the back. Its leather uppers were dressed up entirely in Black, with Red- and White-colored accents.
Air Jordan 6 “Chinese New Year” Release Date,As many readers might be familiar, the Chinese Zodiac or Sheng Xiao is based on a 12-year cycle, with each year in the cycle corresponding to a specific animal sign. The Chinese lunar calendar is used to determine the animal sign that corresponds to a particular year. For instance, 2017 was the Year of the Rooster, or more specifically the Year of the Fire Rooster. The next Year of the Rooster will be 2041. As for 2018, it will be the Year of the Dog. To celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Dog, it seems that the Jordan releases 2018 an Air Jordan 6 “Chinese New Year.”
The remainder of Air Jordan releases 2017 for the second half of the year will apparently include several different Air Jordan 6 releases, such as the “Gatorade,” “UNC” and “Wheat” colorways. Next year, it will 26 years since the Air Jordan 6 debuted back in 1991 and Jordan Brand seems to have chosen it for the annual Chinese New Year release. The photo above is not actually of the “Chinese New Year” colorway of the Air Jordan 6. However, it will reportedly be dressed up in a combination of Black, Metallic Gold, Summit White, and multiple other colors.
There is a possibility that the sneaker might be a China-exclusive release, but fortunately, the sneakerheads there will actually be able to rock a pair on the day of the Chinese New Year 2018. It is being reported and rumored that January’s Jordan releases 2018 will include the Air Jordan 6 “Chinese New Year,” which might actually hit the shelves on January 27th, 2018.
The Year of the Dog will begin on February 16th, 2018. In the 12-year Chinese Zodiac cycle, the Dog happens to be the 11th animal sign. The dog is considered quite a favorable animal by the Chinese. In the Chinese Zodiac, each of the 12 animal signs also corresponds with one of 5 elements, and each of these five elements repeats after a 60-year cycle. As mentioned, 2017 was the Year of the Fire Rooster. Similarly, 2018 will be the Year of the Earth Dog. People born in the Year of the Dog are believed to possess positive characteristics like cleverness, courage, liveliness, loyalty and responsibility.
adidas NMD R2 Primeknit Release Date,Just recently, right before May came to an end, it was revealed that adidas and United Arrows & Sons would be collaborating to collectively design a brand new colorway of the NMD R2. However, rather than the actual sneaker that will eventually arrive at retailers, merely a sample pair was unveiled. The sample NMD R2 pair featured heathered uppers dressed up in a combination of Black and Grey, which suggests that it could end up making its retail debut either in Fall or Winter. Before that happens though, three new adidas NMD R2 colorways have been unveiled and are set to hit the shelves next month, i.e. in July.
After having taken a look at these three NMD R2 releases, sneakerheads have probably already picked their favorites and some perhaps even intend to cop all three of them. Of course, they will have to wait until July 2017 because these three adidas NMD R2 colorways will make their retail debut sometime next month.
Apart from the three adidas NMD R2 colorways that this post revolves around, another iteration of the NMD R2 Primeknit is also set to make its retail debut this very month in just a few days time. It will be joining upcoming summer 2017 releases from adidas. The iteration sports a classic color scheme with its primeknit uppers, including the three stripes pattern, dressed up completely in plain White. Even it Boost midsoles are clean White. Black and Red can also be spotted, adding a contrasting touch. Sneakerheads will be able to cop a pair of this adidas NMD R2 Primeknit “White/Black” at a price of $170 on June 10th.
Along with grabbing a pair of the NMD R2 Primeknit “White/Black,” sneakerheads can also look forward to the arrival of three NMD R2 colorways seen above. These three colorways are apparently being referred to as “Core Black/Future Harvest,” “Core Black/Wonder Pink” and “Wonder Pink/Core Black.” The two predominantly Black-colored iterations are almost identical, except one features Pink-colored heel pull tabs, while the other features Red-colored ones along with Future Harvest-colored accents. All three of these iterations are also equipped with matching clean White-colored Boost midsoles and White-colored rubber outsoles.
Air Jordan 1 High “Wings” Release Date .The “Wings” branding has been a part of the Air Jordan history, ever since Nike first introduced the revolutionary sneaker model. The logo was chosen to represent Michael Jordan’s ability to spread his metaphorical “wings” and soar into the air. Over the years, the “Wings” logo has consistently appeared over nearly all Air Jordan sneakers that have arrived at retailers. Back in 2015, Jordan Brand launched their WINGS program, a global community action program, and in 2016, they dropped the Air Jordan 12 “Wings” for charity. It seems that the Air Jordan 1 is receiving the “Wings” treatment this year, which could likely be another charity-based Air Jordan release.
Air Jordan 1 High “Wings”
Release Date: Summer 2017
AA2887-035 | $200
These latest, most detailed photos of the Air Jordan 1 High “Wings” were recently shared on Instagram by user @gc911. The sneaker does not seem to resemble last year’s Air Jordan 12 “Wings,” at least on the surface. As can be seen, its uppers are dressed in a combination of Black and Gold, which make it look as if it is actually made up of bronze. It is also equipped with special leather laces, while the “Wings” logo appears over the heels and tongues, and its insoles also feature the Golden-colored wings pattern. It also has translucent, smoky outsoles with “WINGS” printed over it.Additionally, the inner tongue tabs of the Air Jordan 1 High “Wings” also feature the words “19,400” and “EVERYONE CAN FLY.” The number likely signifies how many pairs of this sneaker Jordan Brand has produced and will be dropping as a part of their Summer Air Jordan releases 2017.
As mentioned, just about every Air Jordan release that Jordan Brand has dropped to date has featured the “Wings” branding. The only exception would be the recent Air Jordan 1 Rare Air sneakers that have arrived between 2015 and 2016, which replaced the “Wings” logo with simple “AIR JORDAN” textual branding. Of course, the Air Jordan 12 “Wings” was not only nicknamed after that branding, but also featured it as well. All of the proceeds generated from the sales of the sneaker went to the Wings Foundation. Apparently, the same will happen once the Air Jordan 1 High “Wings” ends up joining the Summer Air Jordan releases 2017.
Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” Release Date,Last year, i.e. in 2016, Jordan Brand went on somewhat of a spree of dropping one Air Jordan release after another, a few of which were returning colorways. One of them was the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue,” which was brought back the very next day after April Fool’s Day last year, on April 2nd, 2016. The sneaker made its comeback in celebration of the Air Jordan 12’s 20th anniversary and the last time it was seen at retail shelves was back in 2004. Despite having returned after twelve years last year, it turns out that Nike.com has restocked the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.”
The Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” was one of the most popular colorways of the model that sneakerheads were interested in copping back in 2016. However, it is unlikely that anyone was expecting to see the basketball sneaker as baseball cleats, but that actually did happen, although Jordan Brand was not responsible for it. Apparently, Russell Martin was among the sneakerheads who copped the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue.” However, lacing up in his pair as it was, he got in touch with customizer Custom Cleats Inc. and got the sneaker transformed into a baseball cleat. His cleat pair can be seen above.
This is an excellent opportunity for sneakerheads who were still not able to add this sneaker to their collection now that it has joined recent Air Jordan releases 2017 after being restocked. Of course, they will have to head over to Nike.com to grab a pair of the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” at a price of $190.
More importantly though, this Wednesday, sneakerheads browsing through Nike.com would have been upon noticing the Air Jordan 12 “French Blue” available on the website. Sneakerheads do not have to worry because it is the same version as last year’s, so it will be dressed up in the same distinct color scheme as the original. Its uppers are made up of tumbled leather, predominantly clean-White, but also featuring French Blue-colored overlays over the forefoot and rear portion of each shoe. The French Blue hue also covers its outsoles, while it also has Black-colored branding, Metallic Silver-colored top eyelets, and some Grey-colored detailing.
