Ray Allen‘s long awaited debuted in some PE sneaks out in Miami was a pretty severe curveball for most of the sneakerhead scene, opting out of the anticipated red and yellow shades for this special Air Jordan XVI ‘Gold’ player exclusive that kinda mimics the ‘Year of the Rabbit’ theme. Sugar Ray kept the shroud on for most of the game and took it off momentarily, but overall this on-court Air Jordan XVI action reminding many of us how slick the underrated silhouette can be. Let’s keep in mind that when both those Air Jordan VIII and Air Jordan XIII ‘Ray Allen’ PEs were released in limited numbers, the model itself was heavily released around that time. Does this point to an Air Jordan XVI re-issue soon? Click through with Sneaker News for some up close shots of the sneakers and let us know in the comments where this pair ranks for you in terms of all time Ray Allen Air Jordan PE’s.

NBA Feet: Ray Allen – Air Jordan XVI “Gold” PE

October 31st, 2012 by | 9 comments

ray allen air jordan xvi white gold miami pe summary NBA Feet: Ray Allen   Air Jordan XVI Gold PE

With Ray Allen matching Chris Bosh’s 19 points and the Heat easily defeating the Boston Celtics in an Eastern Conference Finals rematch despite LeBron James missing crunch time with a charlie horse, it’s safe to say that Miami’s Big Three is now a quartet.  Sugar Ray has both the championship pedigree and impressive PE resume to contribute to this formidable assemblage, and last night we saw the first of what figures to be a ton of dope Air Jordan player exclusives in MIA red and gold.  The first choice was a curious one that leaves Jordanheads wondering whether new Air Jordan XVIs might be on the way for the first time since Michael Jordan’s first Wizards season.  This new take on the Sixteen reminds us of Ray’s first run Bucks AJXVI PEs; which do you think is a better representation of this famously shrouded design?  Have a closer look below, let us know what you think and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for a whole season’s worth of NBA Feet.

Air Jordan ‘Rainbow Pack’

May 22nd, 2012 by | 76 comments

air jordan rainbow pack1 Air Jordan Rainbow Pack

It all started with that Air Jordan IV, showing up with the monochrome blocking on top that was unlike any Air Jordan colorway we’d seen before. After that the Air Jordan XVI and Air Jordan XII did the same, suggesting that the super colorful pairs were part of some over-arching theme never to make it to retail, sort of in the same vein as the ‘History of Flight’ or ‘Pantone’ series. Well folks, Pandora’s box has officially been opened-it turns out the set spans quite the range, starting at the Air Jordan 1 and reaching all the way up to last year’s Air Jordan 2011, created strictly for display purposes in the Spring 2011 season just like the aforementioned collections. Every two pairs along the way sports a slightly different shade, with the 25 separate models included pretty much spanning what the rainbow has to offer. Hit the jump with us to check out the crazy Air Jordan ‘Rainbow Pack’ courtesy of brokeonjordans on eBay and let us know which pair among them you like the most. Photos: brokeonjordans

Air Jordan XVI ‘Metallic Royal’ Sample

May 9th, 2012 by | 29 comments

air jordan xvi metallic royal sample Air Jordan XVI Metallic Royal Sample

It’s about time the Air Jordan XVI re-released, right? Outside of the Countdown Package releases of 2008, none of the Air Jordans XVI and later were re-issued, but according to this never-before-seen Promo Sample, the 2008 Air Jordan XVI ‘CDP’ may not have been a solo act. The latest to roll out of the Air Jordan sample vault is the Metallic Blue/White colorway, which features a unique material on the upper similar to the matte Foamposite-like finish seen on the Jordan Six Rings ‘Foamposite’ release of early 2011 (not really Foamposite, but a similar texture/feel/look). The entire upper including the gaiter features this seldom-used material, and when paired with the white midsole and translucent outsole, this unreleased sample proved that there’s still a lot of uncharted territory in the Air Jordan XVI. A detailed gallery awaits you below, so take a look and peep the full listing from brokeonjordans on eBay.
