airjordan 6 black red leather suede sample Air Jordan 6 60/40 Unreleased Sample

It’s the year of the VI so we know your eyes light up anytime a potential new release surfaces, but this one is a variety you’ll never see. It’s actually a sample from 2010 when a number of Air Jordan 6 releases hit stores, and while the colorways is as standard Jordan as you can get, there’s a lot more to this sample than meets the eye. First off, the classic Bulls look is flipped around with the icy outsole now a deep red, but the true highlight of the sample is that upper is both leather and suede (thus the 60/40 nickname derived by owners of this sample). Check out the additional photos of this never-before-seen sample and let us know what you think about the details on this shoe. Many thanks to Index Portland.

Perhaps the most integral playmaker of a successful sneaker launch is the jaw-dropping debut colorway.

For the LeBron 12, Nike went deep seven times, introducing to us a handful of awesome colorways that will be made available over the course of the next three months. The man responsible for these visual statements is Eugene Rogers; as the Nike Basketball Color Lead, Rogers, with his team of talented color experts, has changed the industry with storytelling interpreted through bright tones and patterns.

Nike and LeBron James Unveil the LeBron 12

nike lebron 12 launch recap 10 Nike and LeBron James Unveil the LeBron 12

Not often does Nike open up the doors of the World Headquarters to the public eye. A company built on next-level innovation has to keep things a bit secretive, but the LeBron 12 launch event was designed to reveal the deepest corner of the Beaverton office – the Nike Sports Research Lab. It’s where all the magic happens, and the NSRL’s contribution to its products is a major reason why the Swoosh brand sits at the top. Like the previous 11 iterations of the Nike LeBron, the twelfth model was born in the lab, but never before has all the extrapolated data been made so openly available to the public. In fact, all of the colorways are a tribute to the gathered information that came from the tireless wear-testing and development; Nike is putting it all out there for the world to see, and it’s starting with the LeBron 12. We’ll go a bit more in detail regarding the events of the trip, so continue on below to get a first-hand look at the LeBron 12 launch at the Nike WHQ.
