Air Jordan IX Premio – Michael Jordan Autographed Pair on eBay

air jordan ix premio michael jordan autograph 6 Air Jordan IX Premio   Michael Jordan Autographed Pair on eBay

Not that we’re counting, but it’s been 440 days since Jordan Brand released its last Air Jordan Premio from the Bin 23 Collection. Since then, there has been an abundance of Air Jordan Retros that have held us over, but to say the sneaker community has been patiently twiddling its collective thumbs is quite the understatement. Simply put, the Bin 23 Collection needs to make a comeback. Going back to the first Air Jordan Premio release of the Air Jordan II, we caught the first glimpse at the unparalleled luxury of ‘Premio’, as each individually numbered unit featured pristine materials, solid-wood shoe-trees, and separate shoe bags – the stuff you’d expect with high-end $1,000+ dress shoes. Not only is the Air Jordan IX the rarest of the bunch, this autographed pair (scribbled on by Michael Jordan) is, according to the seller, just one of two in existence, so take a look below to refresh yourself on Premio goodness and check out the full listing from oregonsole on eBay.

Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Oregon Ducks’ Customs By Jason Negron

nike air foamposite one oregon ducks customs 7 Nike Air Foamposite One Oregon Ducks Customs By Jason Negron

The University of Oregon has firmly embedded itself into the past, present, and future of Nike as a whole, as the founders of the Swoosh have risen from Duck roots and have established the world HQ just a couple of hours away from the UofO campus. The running and training heritage born from Bowerman and Knight has manifested itself in a ton of PE and special edition releases over the last few years, but we haven’t seen much on the Nike Sportswear side of things – until now.

Jason Negron’s next project was to transform the Nike Air Foamposite One into Duck form, using the Electrolimes as a base and dying the outsole a Oregon green while adding the ‘O’ logo on the heel and the Fighting Duck on the tongue, replacing the ’1-Cent’ logo. Negron clearly has a jump on these creative ideas (remember, before Spike got his Knicks Foams, Jason completed his own Knicks-styled Foam customs), so will we see a ‘Duckposite’ PE in the future? Continue reading for a detailed gallery below and let us know what you think of these customs, and if you want to commission your own pair, hit up Jason Negron directly through his Sole Swap Facebook page.

One key reason the Nike Air Max 95+ BB is winning over the masses including typically staunch purists is new ‘abilities’ like the style pictured above, conferred by the miraculous synthetic construction that is Hyperfuse.  360-degree Max Air on the cushion ain’t bad, either, so when you combine these with the familiar greys and neon that made Sergio Lozano a name no sneakerhead could ever forget, we’re looking at a clear case of technology opening doors to new aesthetic potential.  Click through for some more images of the ‘Neon’ Air Max+ (95) 360, let us know how this ‘pillared’ look compares to the newfangled gradient found on mita’s ‘Neo Escape 2.0′ and look for this Volt-accented edition at Nike Sportswear retailers starting May 31st.

Nike Air Max Barkley ‘Stealth’

May 3rd, 2012 by | 7 comments

nike air max barkley stealth 7 Nike Air Max Barkley Stealth

The last time we got a look at this Charles Barkely homage from Nike Sportswear, it earned a comparison to the Air Jordan Legacy with that series’ famed Stealth and Cool Grey shades combined. Will these Nike Air Max Barkleys now attract the same kind of attention as this summer’s ‘Olympic’ Air Jordan VI Retro? Probably not, but the same kind of altered sole coloring is evident when comparing this pair to the ones that popped up in late April. But ultimately we’re talking about trading grey for grey and keeping most of the shoe identical, which means it’ll still be a supremely versatile member of your rotation when you grab a pair from Nike Sportswear retailers like Sneaker Bistro or on eBay.
