staff insights air jordan lows Staff Insights: Air Jordan Lows

While Air Jordan Retros in general have always been held in the highest regard by sneaker enthusiasts, their lowtop counterparts have not always been met with the same unconditional love. While various Air Jordan Lows have certainly had plenty of shining moments through the years, they’re typically seen as the little brothers to the iconic original designs that came before them. This weekend’s release of the Air Jordan XI Low “Concord” will no doubt be a resounding win for the AJ Low legacy, so we’re celebrating the inevitable triumph with a look back at some of the SN staff’s all time favorite additions to the Air Jordan Low arsenal in this edition of Staff Insights.

sn staff insights supreme x nike 1 Staff Insights: Favorite Supreme x Nike Collabs

This week, Supreme is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their original Lafayette Street location, and while the store/brand has come a long way from their skateshop roots over the years, one of the constants of the last decade or so has been an ongoing partnership with Nike. What began with their infamous SB Dunks has evolved into a diverse arsenal of Nike footwear collaborations that have since gone on to transcend the skate category and tap into some beloved street style icons as well. In tribute to a brand that has brought so much excitement to the sneaker culture, in this week’s installment of Staff Insights, we’ve selected our all-time favorite Supreme x Nike offerings.

sn staff insights 21st century air jordans Staff Insights: 21st Century Air Jordans

Yesterday, Jordan Brand introduced the world to the Air Jordan XX9, a woven one-piece upper design that again makes use of the Flight Plate cushioning system. It’s no secret that not all of the legacy models have set the sneaker world on fire the way those early Air Jordan offerings did, but there’s no denying some of the bold achievements they’ve made along the way in the name of performance and innovation. It seems like after the XIV, many of the later models tend to remain a bit more obscure than their uber-iconic predecessors, so with the latest game shoe being revealed this week, it seemed like a perfect time to shine some light on some of the best post-2000 installments. In this edition of Staff Insights, our team pinpoints some of their favorite Air Jordans from the latter half of the line’s tenure.

sn lebron madness champ announced summary Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament   Champion Unveiled

Thirty-two hopeful Nike LeBrons were hand-selected to take part in our Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament, and after weeks of voting, we’ve finally narrowed it down to one true champion. It wasn’t much of a surprise that the earlier models were the ones to exit early, because the Nike LeBron signature line didn’t take off until the era of Jason Petrie and Miami. As the field was narrowed down to sixteen, eight, four, and two, it was clear that the golden era of King James’ sneaker history is certainly post-Decision, and the final match-up was a perfect representation of this change. The LeBron 10 Cork, which signified LeBron’s greatest achievement as a Miami Heat, and the LeBron 8 South Beach, which served as a turning point in LeBron’s career, went head to head in the Final round, but only one can be called the winner. Before we reveal the victor, we’d like to thank all of our fans that participated during every round of voting, and your involvement is the sole reason why we can crown this sneaker as the King of LeBrons. Are you ready? The Sneaker News March Madness Nike LeBron Tournament Champion is…
