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

Official Images of the Nike SB Dunk High “Tiffany”

After its last appearance in 2005, the highly coveted “Tiffany” motif is set to return to Nike SB on February 8 by way of the Nike SB Dunk High. Today, we have been presented with official imagery of the highly anticipated collaborative release.

Considered to be one of the greatest SB Dunk themes of all time, the infamous croc-embossed black paneling is paired up with aqua blue leather and mesh yet again for what is sure to be one of the year’s top releases.

With under two weeks left before their release there is still no definite news on a UK release (February 8), so at the moment expect to see these at Nike for $108 stateside

Nike Sportswear Aztec Blazer

Perhaps drawing parallel from the expansiveness of the Aztec Empire, the Nike Sportswear Aztec Pack not only encompass the Air Max 1. It also includes my favourite, the Nike Blazer High and Low. Because of its canvas upper, instead of the usual leather appointments, the ancient Aztec prints are more acute on the Blazers. Available in both Blazer Mid and Low with two variants of the print, in black or grain. Both scheduled to launch as part Nike’s Holiday 2011 Collection in the coming weeks.
