How Michael Jordan’s Retirement and Comeback Affected The Air Jordan Line

There’s no denying that the actions of such a powerful individual affects more than the individual. With Jordan leaving the game, NBA ratings fell, a powerhouse dynasty franchise was denied the title of being the greatest ever, and the rapid momentum of a powerful signature sneaker line was put to a halt. At the time, there was no sign that Mike would return to the hardwood. After all, during his retirement announcement, he had said that he no longer felt a challenge with the game of basketball, having won three Championships in a row. That left a number of entities scrambling for secondary plans of action, and while the Jordan-less era was still respectable in its own right, it was evident that things would no longer be the same.

Richard Hamilton is one of a few players left in the NBA active during Michael Jordan’s tenure with the Washington Wizards, and one of only three to have played with him there (winning NCAA and NBA championships is also quite rare).  Rip’s Jumpman connection goes back even further to his days at UConn (and presumably all the way back to Coatesville).  So while it might be a bit easier for him to pull a few strings, he’s still just like us in being proud of new pairs.  Here we see the Chicago sharpshooter showing off two fresh Air Jordan 1 Retro High OGs, the forthcoming ‘Grape’ Vs and a new color of the Retro 1 ’93 that despite photo filters appears to be an orange-laced silvery style.  Hamilton also got playful in matching a slightly older release in the ‘Chicago’ Xs to the Bulls logo, so check out all these shots below and let us know which of these you also copped.

Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

sneakernews top 30 2012 1a Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.

The second night of Opening Games for the 2012-13 NBA Season went down last night, but it could it be up to par of Tuesday night’s showcase of Gold LeBron X PEs, Pink Foamposites, and Ray’s XVI? You tell us. Starting off, we saw the Metallic Red Foams on the feet of Lamar Odom as well as J.J. Hickson, while Kobe rocked a PE/iD colorway of the Zoom Kobe VII. Nate Robinson wore three (yes, THREE) different Air Jordan Retros, Demar DeRozan whipped out the Air Jordan IV ‘Black Cat’, and Jared Jeffries (not pictured), wore the Air Jordan XI ‘Bred’. There’s plenty more to see, so check out a recap of last night’s game and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more NBA Feet coverage!

Air Jordan X “Chicago” – OG Autographed Pair on eBay

August 25th, 2012 by | 2 comments

jordan x chicago signed 2 Air Jordan X Chicago   OG Autographed Pair on eBay

If you caught the first ever Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? last week, you’d know already that Michael Jordan wore these, the Air Jordan X in the ‘Chicago’ colorway, during the spectacular ‘Double-Nickel’ performance. Fifty-five points against a raucous Madison Square Garden is a feat that only a few can actually pull off (some say Kobe’s 61 is better, but the Knicks were far more competitive on defense in ’95 than they were in ’09), so even though MJ only wore the Chicago X for a short period of time, there’s a reason why the January 2012 Retro was so popular. This brand new pair of OGs just popped up in our radar, and the fact that it features Jordan’s autograph on the toe-box of the shoe makes it all the more amazing! A full gallery is just below, so take a look and see what the asking price is from dgoldmj2377z0 on eBay.
