air jordan 1 og dunk sole carolina sample Air Jordan 1 – Dunk Sole OG Carolina Sample

Did you know that there existed some OG Air Jordan 1 pairs with the Dunk tooling on bottom? Such a sight is a pretty rare one, and most of those early, alternate Air Jordan 1 versions will show up in Chicago colors-that is if they ever do show up at all. That should let you know the sort of rarity we’re dealing with on this, an Air Jordan 1 in those Carolina colors that has that curious outsole treatment on bottom, one that almost has them looking like a “Be True To Your School” Dunk High OG. Continue reading to see the samples and then bid on this super rare Air Jordan 1 piece from agrade1 on eBay.

Nike Air Vortex VNTG – Armory Slate – Armory Navy

June 22nd, 2013 by | No comments

The Air Vortex continues to be Nike Sportswear’s pre-Max suede and mesh weapon of choice. NSW has fleshed out this range of classic runners in the ‘New Balance’ range over the past year-plus and no model has benefited from the extra attention more than the Nike Air Vortex. This latest Vintage Air Vortex release combines Armory Slate and Armory Navy into one tremendously ‘cool’ colorup, but the key to its charm is how the uncredited brown tongue and sunny yellow heel counter quietly add a deeper harmony. Check out more angles below, then find yours at select retailers like Titolo.

Nike Air Epic VNTG – Sail – Medium Grey – Night Stadium

June 22nd, 2013 by | No comments

nike air epic sail medium grey night stadium 1 Nike Air Epic VNTG   Sail   Medium Grey   Night Stadium

The last Nike Air Epic Vintage colorway to arrive at retail mixed Sport Grey and Team Orange with a rustic Obsidian suede. Continue the navy blue fade-out until it’s more of a dark grey, switch around the color distribution and shades and you have an idea of what to expect with the next pair. These VNTG Air Epics have a more neutral feel with the Sail, Medium Grey and Night Stadium greyscale mix, but Team Orange branding adds just a hint of energy. These just released in Asia, so keep your eyes peeled for a release at US Nike Sportswear retailers and check out more images below in the meantime.

Air Jordan 1 – White – Metallic Blue | OG Pair on eBay

It’s not too surprising that the metallic Air Jordan 1 styles from the original set have sort of been neglected during that model’s extensive 2013 retro treatment. The shoes haven’t historically gotten the same level of shine that the original Bulls stuff, or even the “Royal” version did. But then again, Jordan Brand did randomly pull out the black/metallic gold again so at this point we’d say anything is possible. Continue reading for a refresher on one of the original pairs, sporting white and metallic blue, and then bid on them yourself from prettyollie on eBay.

Air Jordan IX “Powder Blue” – OG Pair on eBay

When the Air Jordan IX came back around in 2013, the sneaker was very much wrapped up in the story of of Jordan’s first retirement from the game of basketball. Let’s keep in mind though that that story was sort of around for the shoe’s initial 1993 release as well though. We’re speaking of the “Powder Blue” colorway, one that opted for Michael Jordan’s old UNC colors as a way of telling a story other than the “Bulls” one. You’ll recall that accompanying ad campaigns even featured MJ in that uni with those sneakers.

Converse NBA Pinnacle Series – 1989 Vintage Team Colorways

converse vintage basketball pinnacle series 1 Converse NBA Pinnacle Series   1989 Vintage Team Colorways

adidas has had the exclusive NBA license on lock since 2006 once Reebok’s deal ended, and during Three Stripes’ time with the NBA, they’ve made a variety of Association-inspired kicks. Like Reebok before them, adidas isn’t the first to pack up hightops with league logos and team colors, as we can trace that all the way back to the golden era of modern sneakers. Converse relished its time as the official provider of the sneakers for the NBA, and just before Reebok and the iconic Pump came in, Converse released some incredible PE-style sneakers in the late 1980′s that matched team logos and colors – almost like the popular and trendy PEs we see today.

The models seen here are the Converse NBA Pinnacle Series in the Utah Jazz edition, and the Converse NBA Team II in the Mavericks and Timberwolves versions; the Pinnacle Series was indeed the performance model created by Converse for NBA in-game wear as it featured the now-defunct Energy Wave technology, while the take-down Team II model had a bit more of an off-the-court approach with an emphasis on style on comfort. A Retro release might be tough to pull considering licensing hurdles and what-not, but with Retro kicks in such high demand, some releases without the team logos definitely have a place in store shelves today. Certainly an awesome throwback piece (on Thursday, no less), so check out some of the additional imagery below and let us know if you remember any of this amazing vintage Converse footwear!

The return means that you won’t have to worry about crumbling up your vintage pair with an actual wear. Said pending release could have a couple different effects on the price of vintage pairs: they might drive it down given the new stock available or they might drive it up given a possible rekindled interest in the silo. Let us know how you think things will go and then watch it pan out with us as we peep this vintage auction for an original pair of the adidas Mutombo from blue.rinse.vintage on eBay.
