Nikestore Restock of Jordans Postponed

nikestore restock jordans postponed Nikestore Restock of Jordans Postponed

Last night, the official Nikestore Twitter account laid out a rather obvious hint regarding a restock of Jordan products. Among these coveted styles were the Air Jordan 1 “Bred”, Air Jordan 1 “Royal”, Air Jordan 11 “Gamma Blue”, Air Jordan 3 ’88, and much more. The restock would go down this morning at 10 AM, and although what products would be available was never revealed, a horde of eager buyers lined up on online to capture what goodies would be in store. However, prior to the 10 AM restock, Nikestore released two big items – the Yeezy Foams and the low-top Air Jordan 11s; those two releases proved to be too much for Nike to handle, and thus the online release of the launch products were postponed.

In addition to the postponed release of the Foams and AJ11s, Nike chose to postpone the announced 10AM restock of Air Jordans. What’s interesting is that at the scheduled 10 AM time, all of the restocked Jordans were up on Nikestore, although no product was available to be added to the shopping cart. Apparently, twenty-three different Air Jordans were intended to be up for sale, but as of now, the restock, as well as the release of the Yeezy Foams and Air Jordan 11 Low, has been postponed indefinitely (Although it appears a small minority were able to get through – and those orders will be honored.

This brings up a new topic of discussion: Are announced restocks of any benefit? If the masses can anticipate such a pivotal event, it is likely that a larger number of hopeful buyers would show up and eventually clog up the shopping channel and force Nike to close up shop. Would you rather Nike drop these random releases unannounced, like last year’s big restock or the release of the Red Yeezy 2s? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more updates on the pending release of today’s launch products and the restock.

Air Jordan III Retro ’88 “White Croc” by PMK Customs

air jordan iii retro 88 white croc customs 3 Air Jordan III Retro 88 White Croc by PMK Customs

Nobody has yet matched JBF’s mastery of exotic materials applied to custom Air Jordan classics, but PMK Customs is one of the select few who have come close.  PMK comes through with his second such build after the dope ‘Brooklyn Zoo’ Air Jordan 1, this time actually taking out the signature texture of one of the most beloved models.  This Air Jordan III Retro ’88 custom job sees its white leather replaced with a croc texture, and perhaps to balance the effect, the Elephant print sections have been converted to a smooth grey leather.  This red leather-lined handcrafted AJ3 is luxurious and has a certain grasp on ‘negative space’, which is to say it’s likely you’ll look at these longer because of the missing elephant.  Let us know how these compare to the best custom IIIs after you’ve seen more below and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

Sneakerheads in Japan have to be stoked about the sudden “restock” of the Air Jordan III Retro ’88 this Saturday, because if that sick “Carmine VI” spotting on Ichiro’s feet was any indication, our pals from the Far East are as excited about Jays as we are. We recently reported a re-release in Asia, so we’re hitting our readers from afar with a reminder today because of the time difference. These are indeed scheduled to drop on March 23rd at 11:00 AM in the local time at Nike Harajuku (they are thirteen hours ahead of our EST). but if you’re still searching for a pair, plenty are to be had on eBay.

Air Jordan 3 Retro ’88 “Black/Cement”

Jordan Brand brought back ‘Nike Air’ on the Air Jordan Retro by introducing the original White/Cement colorway of the III as a special tribute to Jordan’s iconic free-throw line Dunk from the ’88 Dunk Contest. Will the ‘Black/Cement’ make a comeback as well? It seems like it could make sense seeing that Michael did in fact wear the ‘Black/Cement’ colorway during that 1988 All-Star Game, during which he dropped forty points and took home the MVP trophy. Is a All-Star Weekend release in the works? If so, these are likely to be as hot of an item as the last time we saw the Air Jordan III ‘Black/Cement’ with ‘Nike Air’ was in 2001 and 1994. This teaser shot was spotted in a preview of an upcoming ESPN special on the Air Jordan and its impactful presence in sports and fashion, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this potential Air Jordan III Retro ’88 release.
