It was a relatively quiet week in the sneaker world, except for one big, cosmic boom: the official unveiling of the Air Jordan XXX. While the shoe certainly received mixed reviews from “absolute failure” to positive, there’s no denying that it was the hottest topic in sneakers in this week absent of any major new Yeezy or Jordan retro news. That being said, there were still plenty of noteworthy stories within the past week, and they can all be reviewed in this handy recap.
THE AIR JORDAN XXX IS UNVEILED
Do you love it, hate it, or couldn’t care less? Those seem to be the three most common opinions of the thirtieth Air Jordan so far. No matter how you feel about the looks, it should prove to be a great performer on the court. Get all the details and release info of the Air Jordan XXX within the links below.
