At its core, Jordan Brand has and always will be deeply rooted in the game of basketball, but that hasn’t stopped them from expanding into a number of different sports and other categories to help expand the Jumpman empire.

The ever-changing sneaker landscape is full of ebbs and flows, and while styles and even brands rise and fall in popularity, there will always be those individuals out there who never waver from what they love regardless of what everybody else is doing. Here in the U.S., we’ve seen a big spike in the popularity of classic New Balance runners in recent years. Love for the brand’s retro archive has been going strong for a long time in Asia and Europe, but it’s taken a little longer for the fever to catch on to the same degree in the Stateside sneakerhead community.

In a weekend that saw the surprise quickstrike release of the “Red October” Yeezy 2, it seemed like the hottest topic in the sneaker world on Monday was still the high-top return of the revered Diamond Supply Co. “Tiffany” Dunks. In a lot of ways, this past weekend’s release of the Diamond Dunk High was like a nostalgic trip back to 2005. Not only did it effectively recapture the design magic of the original Low edition, but the mayhem around the retail launch also catapulted the SB Dunk back into the spotlight in a way that it has seldom seen in recent years.

While it may seem like Michael Jordan and the brand that bears his name have done it all and achieved the highest pinnacles of success, it just wouldn’t be in their nature to sit back with their feet up, content to revel in the past. Jordan Brand certainly takes great pride in their unrivaled legacy and pays tribute to it often, but the main focus is, and always has been, style and performance innovation. With Michael’s fiercely competitive spirit always in mind, the brand is constantly exploring new ways to push things forward and grow the Jordan legend, whether it’s through their performance basketball offerings or their off the court lifestyle initiatives. Air Jordans have long been a cornerstone of both basketball and street culture around the world, but as we move forward, the brand will always be looking for new ways to evolve their products and expand their influence around the globe.

After some not-so-subtle comments were dropped by Kanye West during a string of late 2013 tour dates and interviews, it became very evident that there was trouble in paradise and the relationship between him and Nike was on the rocks at best. After revealing on a Philadelphia radio show that he had signed a deal with a major brand, the rumors immediately began to swirl that West would be leaving the Swoosh for the Three Stripes.

The Beatles have permeated nearly every imaginable nook and cranny of popular culture, and even fifty years after their legendary first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, their music and the iconic imagery associated with the band are still as omnipresent and relevant as they’ve ever been. With an ever-growing fanbase of devoted diehards to appease, providing Beatles-centric merchandise and memorabilia has always been a vast and profitable enterprise. The band’s likenesses, logos, and album art have graced everything from t-shirts to gallery art to mugs and keychains, but curiously, it took until 2014 to finally make their way onto a sneaker.
