air jordan ix crown jewel 3 Air Jordan IX Crown Jewel Customs by noldo

The “Crown Jewel” colorway of the Nike LeBron X was arguably one of the best of 2012, with the luxurious color tones alluding to the “diamond” concept behind LeBron’s tenth shoe. In this latest custom, noldocustoms shows us that “Crown Jewel” looks good on any suit, especially on the Air Jordan IX; adapting every detail withe the fuschia upper, pink eyelets and outsole, and the speckled midsole, we can confirm that “Crown Jewel”, despite being one of the best colorways of 2012, might be under-appreciated considering we haven’t seen it used in many customs. More angles are below, so take a look and let us know where Crown Jewel ranks among the all-time great LeBron colorways.

It appears that the massive “XX8 Days of Flight” set of Air Jordans given away by Jordan Brand has finally begun to make its way into the hands of the winners. You’ll recall that entry involved snapping a pic of yourself on Instagram using #XX8DaysofFlight wearing the Air Jordan model corresponding to that day. The black and green sneakers have popped up across Instagram, as the lucky Air Jordan enthusiasts who received their pairs have been eager to show them off (and it looks like Jordan Brand unknowingly selected one user to receive two pairs). Now that the pairs are out there, it will be a test of will power to see who ends up keeping these one of a kind sneakers in their personal collection and who ends up taking the “other” route to cash out, although the 1-of-1 factor might be to tough to let go! Check out most of the Air Jordan “XX8 Days of Flight” pairs that have been doled out right after the jump and tell us in the comments which pair is your favorite.

History of Air Jordan Retro Cards

air jordan retro card history History of Air Jordan Retro Cards

The deep stories and events that shadow every Air Jordan in history is what made the Retro such a booming success, and as far back as 1994, Nike made sure that we were reminded of the message behind each design. Since the first Air Jordan Retros in 1994 during MJ’s first retirement to all OG and Retro colorways that hit stores in the late 90′s and 2000′s, a tw0-sided post-card detailing a brief history of the shoe as well as an iconic flashback image of the times came included with the shoes; these cards have been referred to as Retro Cards, and while some may have not given them much though, some sneaker collectors did their best to gather them all. With the Air Jordan Retro Card making a surprising come-back with the upcoming Air Jordan VIII Retros and the possibility of more Retro Cards with future Retro releases, it’s about time we took a look back at every single Retro Card that Nike ever put out – from the first ones in 1994, to the latest ones that came accompanied with a Doernbecher release. Enjoy this throwback piece below and let us know which you’re missing from your set!
