The Nike Academy has a new video out on youtube giving us a mid season review of their soccer players.
These players had the chance to visit PSG and now its all about persistance and pushing yourself to the lim
When images of this shoe first came out people were under the impression this was the Nike Zoom Kobe VI Chaos color-way. However, we now know that it is not, this is the China Edition. The colors on this shoe were inspired by the traditional artwork on chinese porcelain. There is no news of a release in the U.S. for these kicks but they will be releasing in China on February 2nd.
These kicks feature a gray and silver upper with a white outsole, an ink blue swoosh and lining with red Kobe logo on the tongue. Very simple, very smooth and not as harsh on the eyes as the Grinch editions. Interested in copping these on the web, be prepared to drop.
As seen below, today Jordan Brand released and completely unveiled the Air Jordan 2011 which exhibits the best in athletic footwear technology and is at the forefront of athletic footwear. According to JB it is the most elite and technologically advanced design out of the 26 shoe series it is continuing upon. Tinker Hatfield, the VP of Special Projects and Creative Design at Nike Inc has said that this shoe is setting a mark for performance footwear and continuing a tradition. Based on the different types of cushioning and new ideas applied to this shoe, it adapts to every type of player and is the most versatile sneaker offered in the market and it has not even been released yet. One of the sincerely unique things about the new Air Jordan 2011 is the upper. The leather on the front that wraps around the upper of the foot and stops at the back is a patina leather. This leather, was first said to be a finger print when images were first released. Currently, now that we know exactly what it is, it is a hand crafted petina leather. This makes sure that no two shoes are exactly alike. Every pair therefore is unique. Finally one very cool piece of information about the Air Jordan 2011, is that the "Year of the Rabbit" color-way is happening because Michael Jordan was born in the year of the rabbit. Rumors have surfaced that the price on the YOTR edition will be the same as the other color-ways but according to my knowledge and extensive research the YOTR edition of the Air Jordan 2011 will be $180, which is only $10 more, but it comes with a special edition box painted with chinese art in reflective gold.
Leaked photos this and leaked photos that! We saw Dwayne Wade ball in these kicks, of course there are photos!!!
Sorry for venting there but finally there are photos of four color-ways of the new Nike Air Jordan 2011. The Air Jordan 2011 will be available in just a few days and it will be kicked off with a color-way for the "year of the rabbit". Similar to the Nike AF1 "Year of the Rabbit" except these are not fuzzy. The colors that are going to be available are White/Anthracite White/Red White/Royal and then the Year of the Rabbit edition. The YOTR edition will be valued at retail $180 while the others will be at $170. Keep in mind, your paying for the box on the YOTR edition too, and let me tell you, it is sweet!
Here are the release dates in order: Air Jordan 2011
“Year of the Rabbit” 2/03/11 $180 White/Varsity Royal-Deep Royal 2/19/11 $170 436771-103White/Black-Anthracite 2/19/11 $170 436771-101Team Red/Team Red-White 2/19/11 $170 436771-602
Only three days ago we posted release info on the Nike AF1 "Year of the Rabbit." More images have been surfacing, more rumors been spreading but thanks to our friends at Freshness Magazine, even more info is out but more legit to help those of us who really really need these shoes.
One thing that has been frustrating to me is all the articles on these shoes, they each are talking about the design but in a vague way, like we sometimes do even here, but kept saying based on the shoe box, that it is modeled after Chinese candy, but which candy, and why?! The Shoe has been modeled after the White Rabbit Creamy Candy, which I personally have never had, but according to Freshness, every child in China grew up with it and it is a toffy like candy.
Now, for more release info, the shoe like we said previously will be on sale for $250 and initially we posted purchasing and pre-order for an ebay account. I personally am not buying these kicks so I dont know if that link worked for anyone and their actually getting them but if you live on the East Coast, you can pick the fuzzy critters at NikeTown New York in Manhattan on 57th under the Trump building, Nike Sportswear at 21 Mercer, and the New Nike Location recently opened this year at the Roosevelt Field Mall. If you live on the West Coast, they are available at Nike Santa Monica. All these locations will be selling the rabbits with the regular nike packaging not the limited edition candy wrappers.
Because of demand no store will be taking phone or email orders. If you want these fuzzy little house pets under your roof you will have to wait online. I recommend going now...

The NIKE LunarElite+ 2 is one of the most Lightweight shoes with support and a stable ride according to the NIKE silos for running footwear. The LunarElite+2 offersg an increased amount of support compared to the LunarElite + with lunar cushioning for a smooth and comfortable ride. Some improvements from the first LunarElite are a new flywire construction and less weight.
Some of the benefits of the LunarElite+ 2 is that it is best for runners who are considered nuetral to moderately overpronated in their step, meaning their heel and foot roll in. The upper as said before and like the LunarElite+ is constructed by flywire for lightweight support. Inside the lunar outsole there is the NIKE dynamic support giving stability a runner needs. One of the best things about the lunar foam which we have heard before is the fact that it is constructed of two types of foam. A more dense outer with a softer inner and this provides the runner with a "springy" feedback with ultimate shock absorption.
One thing that I personally notice in nike running shoes first is the seam free synthetic overlay, like in the air max 2010 and in some of the NIKE Free shoes in the barefoot silo. This helps reduce chafing and makes the shoe more lightweight. The flywire panels are placed in such a strategic formation on the upper, that they are said to be similar to a hand grip, holding your foot to the sole of the shoe. In addition to this, NIKE has placed memory foam inside the collar and around the ankle for comfort which is similar to the NIKE Zoom Kobe VI which also has memory foam.
For cushioning on the bottom of the foot with the insole, the LunarElite+2 features the lunarlon as in most lunar shoes, since it is NIKEs softest foam. This is the soft less dense sole interior. Next, it is surrounded by a more dense foam carrier which acts as the crash pad under the heel and it gives a "springy" reaction to give the easiest flow from the heel to the toe. The dynamic support which is mixed in between the lunarlon and the foam carrier is a plastic piece placed there and it gives you the best support no matter what type of runner you are. It reacts to you and your stride.
Some final important factors about these kicks are the shape of the sole, and its technology. The sole features NIKE's classic waffle pattern for the best traction possible. It also is made with NIKE's "Flex Grooves" like in the NIKE Free for enhanced flexibility. This feature is in the womens NIKE Free TR XT. And last but not least it is NIKE + ready meaning if you got yourself the NIKE+ iPOD chip you can just slide it in there and your ready to go. If you do not own the iPOD touch 2nd generation or newer then unfortunately you will need certain generations of the nano with the adapter and then if you dont own the right iPOD in general or dont want to buy one, NIKE sells the NIKE+ Sportband and iPODs at most of their locations.

Check out here the new trailer to Kobes movie "The Black Mamba." Includes stars such as Bruce Willis.
KD being a young'n and a role model for kids across the country has finally presented us with this years All Star edition of his most recent shoe, and his second All Star edition. Do not confuse this color-way with valentines day, but its more of a fire and an intimidation while going with the Challenge red that a lot of east edition kicks for the game are going for. The upper uses patent leather and there are black highlights throughout the shoe with a contrasting white swoosh. The box is also designed with the east logo and some basketball images. One of my favorite features about the Zoom KD 3 are the hole in the tongue, the translucent outsole and the weight of the shoe. You can now pre-order them at http://store.kix-files.com/nike-zoom-kd-iii-all-star-game-2011-western-conference/.
Jordan Brand feels that its fans deserve premium product and quality style and what better way to show their love then giving the sneaker-heads and jordan fanatics the next pair of Bins. The Jordan 5 is not my favorite silhouette and I am not a fan of black upper but I must say, these Jordan 5's are buttery smooth and crisp, no matter who you are. One of the things about this edition is that the upper is a single color of black with hints of silver on the outsole, and tongue. Jordan also hits this shoe with white laces and a red jumpman logo making sure you know whos shoe this is. The Premio Bin 23 seems to come with a traveler bag and sneaker inserts in order to keep these one of a kind very few to be produced kicks looking as crispy as the day you opened your box.
Look out for their release later this year.
