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.

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.

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.

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.
