The Jordans Obama Got Before Anyone Else…

obama-exclusives

Remember a few weeks back when President Obama visited the Nike campus to talk about the Trans-Pacific Partnership that has caused quite the stir since? Well, as another part of the trip, the leader of the free world also received some custom sneakers. No, these aren’t your struggle NikeiD Huaraches or some shit because, again, this is the Commander-in-chief we’re talking about. Obama got laced with two new renditions of the Jordan I and Jordan XXIX and T Magazine got the exclusive look at the pairs that OB Obama might very well cross up his chief of staff in on the White House court. Though, like, you gotta let him win regardless. You can’t be out here posterizing the dude with the power to send you straight to Guantanamo. OG Nike design legends Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker, plus the Jumpman himself, Michael Jordan, teamed up to create the two pair “MTM” pack Nike is releasing in June in celebration of 30 years of the Air Jordan brand. Obviously, when you’re the goddamn president, you’re firmly team early. I mean, nobody is a bigger #influencer than the big homie.

The Jordan Is get a slick FlyWeave construction in black and grey, while the XXIXs come in smooth black leather. The sneakers will be dropping in a crazy limited two-pair pack on June 13th at NikeLab Paris and later on June 26th at Jordan Brand’s website and select Jordan outlets for a rumoured hefty £460

Following the announcement of the new NikeLab ACG collection, it has been all but confirmed that the highly coveted Nike ACG Air Mowabb will be making a return in 2015.

Another week another on point size? exclusive colourway of some description. Shortly after having released its collaborative size? x Nike Air Huarache Light “Mowabb” (which are available here), the UK retailer presents two new exclusive colourways of the sneaker to release soon. The Nike Air Huarache Light “Midnight Forest” Pack consists of a midnight blue colourway of the sneaker on white outer sole and a forest green colorway on white outer sole. Both feature 3M accenting on the laces, with the result being two very clean versions of the sneaker. We have a hard time choosing a favorite, as both are great for the season and very timeless and easy to wear and match. The Nike Air Huarache Light “Midnight Forest” Pack will release in limited numbers on November 7 HERE
