Eye Candy from Public School New York and the Jordan X
PSNY x Jordan 1 only made 50 pairs, so might not want to get too excited, but who knows, maybe they’ll make more of the Tens? Enjoy the picture from the Public School’s IG account. To see the PSNY x Jordan 1’s click here on a past post on Streetzblog.com
Air Jordan Flashcards
Check out these Air Jordan Flashcards. Play with friends and see who knows their J’s the Best. Out of the first 20, I could do pretty well up until 15-19. After a couple plays, easy parcheesie. But just like Jordan’s these cards created by Kevin Lyons are limited to just 250 sets. I’d like to play the game, but I suspect many will keep these on ice just like the kicks.
I wouldn’t pay double or triple for a card game, that’s for sure. It does give me a good idea to have some fun and still get to play the game. Just go on-line, copy, print and cut up all the J’s you can find, laminate them, then play with your fellow sneakerheads. Sounds like a plan. And you get to play the game with the even more styling color versions of the kicks. Adding to this idea, put together an Air Jordan Flash Card Game Night. Play the card game, eat some Ballpark franks, Drink some Gatorade, maybe have a cigar or two, watch some Bulls Games on VHS. And don’t forget to buy, sell, and trade your kicks. Sweet! who’s ready to Partay?
To get you ready to play the card game or just have fun re-living your Airness’ career. Have fun seeing Jordan in over 30 minutes of Nike Air Jordan commercials. Enjoy!
These Kicks are Just not Right!
This is probably the first pair of Air Jordan’s I would not wear even if they were FREE! What’s going on here? The shoe on the left is in the Phoenix Suns colorway and the Pair on the Right is in the Seattle Supersonics colorway. The title of this release is the “Formidable Foes Pack”, meaning two teams that played the Bulls in the Play-Offs.
Me, being a Jordan Fan and a Bulls fan there is now way I would want to wear these. Who Would? Would you? And if they made these, where are the HATED Detroit Pistons colorway. That was the Bulls most “Formidable Foe” & the hardest to get past to get to the Bulls goals foe..fer sure.
Although, full disclosure on my end, I would Rock the Jordan 11 “Knicks” Colorway, but they are pretty expensive. My favorite colors are Orange and Blue together and the best place to watch a B-Ball Game int he entire world is Mad Square Garden. But Suns and Supersonics..I don’t think so. I wonder who is going to buy these? Not Bulls fans, and I bet the Sonics and Suns fans still dislike Mr. Air Jordan for messing up all their hopes and dreams. So, I don’t see them wearing them either.
Pretty strange colorways. At least for me.
And These Kicks are Alright!
On another Jordan note, check these all Red Air Jordan 3’s that JT has been rockin’ during the Legends of Summer Tour! According to Hip Hop wired he wears them and also gives them away at shows. That’s some major JUICE to have your own pair of kicks that you wear & giveaway to fans. I don’t even think you can buy em’ anywhere but Ebay. Now these are HOT!
What do you think of these releases? What are you wearing this Weekend? Me-I’m busting out my brand new All Patent leather luxe Black/Red McQueen’s. See you on the Streets of HI this weekend.
The Black Cat is out of the Bag!
Jordan Brand will release a 5 Sneaker collection featuring the Black/Electric Green(Flo Green) colorway. They will be known as the “Stealth” All-Star Collection and will include the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 111, Jordan CP3, Jordan Melo M9 and the all new Air Jordan XX8.
Thursday February 14, 2013: Will see the release of the Jordan Melo M9 and the Jordan Cp3. Both include the special UV ink that illuminates when seen under Black Light.
Saturday February 16, 2013: Will be the BIG day with the release of THREE Jordan night vision inspired Kicks. I suspect the Biggest and most sought after will be the Jordan 1 Retro Mid and the Jordan 111 both in Black/Electric Green. Also releasing on the same day will be the Air Jordan XX8. I’m so glad that they went back to labeling the Jordans by numbers. I remember complaining about the last few pairs and how they didn’t have a number. It’s so silly but Because of that I didn’t even buy a pair. Last Jordans other than Retro’s I bought were the 23’s.
I really dislike saying “Good Luck finding the 1’s and 3’s” and dislike saying even more that “I don’t know where these will be sold in Hawaii” The best help I can provide is to check out Premium Laces in NYC at 68 Spring Street or call up Eddie or Matthew at 212-334-4934. That store can either hook you up or let you know where to go to get a pair. Make sure you tell them that Streetzblog.com says “Aloha”. I’m sure that Footlocker at Ala Moana in HI will have the AJ28’s and sometimes they get the retro’s, but not always on the same day of release as the mainland.

THE PARTY IS ON!
Michael Jordan is just days away from turning the Big 5-0 Check out Sportscenter now thru Sunday they are doing some pretty fun specials on him. Upcoming are his Kicks and Gear, Yesterday they talked about the Celtics game where they say he scored 63 points but my video at my house which I can’t find right now, says he scored 72 labeled in permanent black sharpie. Something I think I’ll never figure out..hehe.
And Check out this dope Vid from TED done by Lemon Anderson. It’s entitled ” Please Don’t Take My Air Jordans”, My mom would never let me wear mines when I went to downtown Chicagoland back in the 80’s. We only wore our canvas Cons down there. I like the Video, rhymin’, vibe, gestures etc. Nice job Lemon! What do you think? I also wonder what Kicks are going to drop on MJ’s BDay? Anyone Know? Maybe a secret Quickstrike? Hope I’m in Foot Locker when that happens!
(Updated blog post-Feb 11, 2013)
I received a text the other day from a bigger Snearkerhead than myself and they said that they think the Big Shoe will be the AJ1. Maybe in that Black and Flo Green colorway?
And Hypebeast recently reported that the Air Jodan 111 Black Electric Green will release on February 16 and they also think that there will be a Black Electric Green AJ1!
For even more Black/Flow Green Kicks starting with the AJ1 thru the AJXX8, check out this great site to see the 28 Days of Flight. Each day they show us a New Black and Green Shoe, finalizing in the brand new Jordan XX8. Which you can see right now below:
Jordan Turns 50 on February 17-Same Day as the NBA-All Star Game..Hmmm..
The Nike Air Jordan 111 also turned 25 with the February 6 release of the AJ111 Retro 88 with the iconic Nike air on the heel. Picture below:
On February 17 ESPN’s Sportcenter will debut the full list of MJ’s 50 Greatest Moments. And NBATV has a special New interview with MJ on All Star Weekend. Let the Jordan Frenzy get even bigger. Hope he shows up at the NBA All-Star game this year!
