Classics Revisited: Air Jordan XVII Low – White – University Blue (2002)

air jordan 17 low white university blue black chrome 2004 Classics Revisited: Air Jordan XVII Low   White   University Blue (2002)


Finishing off this week of Classics Revisited feature of low-top Jays is the UNC-inspired colorway of the Air Jordan XVII Low. The shoe doesn’t look much like a low-top, but that’s because the internal bootie extends outward up to the ankle, giving the shoe a mid-cut look. Jordan actually wore several PE colorways of the Air Jordan XVII Low during his Wizards days, and we even recounted the Lightnings when he hilariously missed that wide-open slam-dunk during the 2002 NBA All-Star Game. Performance-wise – the XVII is recalled by ballers as being one of the best. The Air Jordan XVII is considered to be the best Air Jordan of the non-Tinker area, as it seamlessly welded a number of concepts like Jordan’s love for golf and jazz music into one classy design. More of this classic Air Jordan Low below, so give it a look and let us know if these are in your collection!

Sneaker News: Was It The Shoes? continues with another memorable moment in Michael’s career, but this one carries an air of infamy rather than one of legend. We’ve covered Michael’s 55-point outburst against the Knicks and his 3-point barrage in the ’92 Finals, and even that quirky moment with the ’12′ jersey resulted in one of Michael’s best games of his career. Tonight, we’ll focus on one of the not-so-MJ moments – a head-scratching blunder that unfortunately happened on one of the most televised games of the NBA Season – the All-Star Game. Check out this latest ‘Was It The Shoes?’ moment below and get filled in on this piece of Jordan history!

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

Michael Jordan’s been the muse to many basketball-crazed artists over the years, but we’ve never seen one so detailed and distinctively done like artist A-BB‘s Michael Jordan Series. What makes this collection of brushstrokes even more mind-blowing is that it was his first time painting Michael Jordan, but from what we’ve seen here, it’s clear he does his artwork while sticking his tongue out. A-BB captured some of the most iconic photos of Michael’s history, paying attention to every detail from the shoes, the jerseys, the muscle-tone, down to the beads of sweat. You can buy prints of this amazing artwork here, so check out the gallery of A-BB’s sick Michael Jordan artwork below, because you definitely don’t want to miss this!

ncaa feet 1 2 1 8 2012 NCAA Feet: Week Of 1/2   1/8

It was another great week of NCAA games, so let’s get right down to some of the notable sneaker sightings around the nation; of course, the three schools fortunate to have Nike LeBron 9 PEs took the court, while Jordan Branded schools like Georgetown, Marquette, Cal, and UNC sported some great team-specific PE colorways of Jordan Brand footwear. But when talking about pure and simple heat, you don’t need to look much farther beyond the Southwest, where San Diego State. and Arizona reside. Between those two schools, we saw the Air Jordan XVII Low ‘Lightning/All-Star’, the Air Jordan V ‘Raging Bull’, the Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Cough Drop’, and a lot more. Cool Greys and Concords were spotted around the nation as well, and don’t forget about the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Texas Longhorns PE’ we showed you earlier. We’ve got a sampling of this week’s best kicks below so take a look and let us know what you think. via Yahoo!.

Michael Jordan’s ‘Six Rings’ Golf Bag

September 21st, 2011 by | 16 comments

michael jordan six rings golf bag 01 Michael Jordans Six Rings Golf Bag

Michael Jordan’s passions outside of the game of the basketball are reflected in each and every Air Jordan design. For example, the Air Jordan XVII was designed after Michael’s passion for jazz music, as seen on the musical notes used to inspire the design on the upper, and golf, which can be seen on the outsole traction of the sneaker, which mirrors a golf course. Golf has been one of Michael’s favorite recreational hobbies after he officially retired from the NBA, and he certainly goes through holes one through eighteen in style, with this custom Air Jordan golf bag that features his six NBA Championships rings stitched proudly on the side. We also have a look at another custom golf bag, which features Air Jordans all around. Definitely one of the cooler bits of Air Jordan goodies, so take a look below and let us know what you think. via TerezOwens.
