air jordan 6 world cup Is This Air Jordan 6 Retro Inspired By The 2014 World Cup?

The practice of pegging nicknames to sneakers has been around for a while. Sometimes, these titles are born internally, while others are a result of fabrication by the public. Recent chatter has called this upcoming Air Jordan 6 Retro as the “World Cup” given the rather obvious color similarities to Brasil’s Yellow and Green, However sensible that may sound, there are still a few reasons as to why that nickname falls a bit short; for one, the World Cup logo has dashes of blue and red (both of which are absent here), and the minty green paintjob on the heel of the midsole is hardly pertaining to the South American country. Official or not, these Air Jordan 6 Retros are beginning to pick up that World Cup moniker, but what do you think? Do these have any bearing to the 2014 football tournament? Check out the photos below and let us know your opinions.

It’s not often that we get to say Jordan Brand is bringing back an OG colorway for the first time, but 2014 is a special year. We’ve already received confirmation that the Sport Blue VI, one of the first batch from 1991, will indeed make a return this year (August 30th to be exact), and considering how popular the earlier Infrared joints were at retail, the Sport Blue will likely be a big attraction once it hits stores right at the start of the new school year. Are these a ┬ámust-have for your, or is these Jordans not high on your list? Let us know in the comments below.

Here is a first look at the Nike KD 6 Elite “EYBL”. We first showed you teaser images in the wee hours of the morning, and this most recent development reveals the Elite signature model done up in a variety of colors and prints. With primary usage of purple and orange tones, the KD 6 Elite “EYBL” will be on the feet of participants of this year’s youth-centered basketball tournament, and as we can all expect, these may eventually land on the hands of some of the hungriest collectors out there. Release info is yet to be revealed, but with past EYBL KDs not being available to the public, it is likely that these will be reserved only for the EYBL participants. Check out more below and let us know what you think.

yeezy 2 foamposite A Quick Comparison of Solar Red: Air Yeezy 2 vs. Foamposite

It’s no mystery that tomorrow’s release of the Air Foamposite Pro in Black/Laser Crimson is inspired in large part by the Air Yeezy 2 “Solar Red”, While the hues of bright red and light green may differ and the choice of materials clearly not related, these two shoes could not be any more similar. It’s off the strength of this iconic 21st Century colorway that tomorrow’s Foamposite drop is perhaps the weekend (or even the month), and seeing these side-by-side with the Yeezy 2s should only make you question your indecision. Are the Yeezy Foams the highlight sneaker release tomorrow? Give us your thoughts.

A preview of the Nike KD 6 “EYBL” arrives tonight, but there’s nothing more than a teaser shot to be had. Still, we can see the Nike EYBL logo on the tongue, some purple and orange accents, and a graphic print on the inner lining as well as the insole sockliner of the shoe. We’ll wait until more photos develop, but now we’re wondering; will this year’s EYBL PE actually release to the public? Nike EYB states that the kicks will indeed release, but will it be exclusive to the EYBL ballers only? Stay tuned for more updates on this KD 6 development and we’ll keep you posted.
