Finally we have a release date for the Retro 3 true blues that a lot of people have been waiting on. JB has been giving the 3's a big spotlight this year with the white/cements, the BHM's a little bit of love in 2010 with the DB's and then in holiday 2011 word of the black/cements. The release date for the true blue retro 3 is said to be on June 19th so save up because they will run you about $150.
We have seen some good lookin' Griffey sneakers come our way recently, especially with the recent release of the Sport Red Griffeys that just came out. Nike is now hitting us with a Griffey that sports a full 360 air unit and what seems to be a more comfortable upper than previous versions. Below we have images of the Nike Air Max Jr which sports an upper similar to the Air Griffey Max 1 mixed with Torch technology and then the 360 Air Unit and out-sole seen on Air Max 2009,2010,2011 and 24/7, Lebron 8 and so on and so forth. These happen to be much more breathable than its predecessor so check it out after the drop. Expected release date in April.
Yesterday we posted some information about the jacked sneakers. We have been informed to let our readers know that if they know or hear anything about the heist to please contact either the Kansas City Police office or the Junction City Police Chief and relay the information or whereabouts that you know to them.
If you know anything, DO THE RIGHT THING! BE A MAN!
So as we all know, some people go bananas for kicks. Not all of us admit we have a problem, good for those of us who do but when you get to the point where your doing some crazy shit like jacking trailers, thats the point where you gotta say you need sneaker rehab....
This past Thursday a Trailer carrying about 3000 pairs of Nike Air Max 90's was jacked in Junction City Kansas. Anytime a truck of kicks is jacked in Junction City they show up in Kansas City. One of the things police are telling people to look out for are some dudes selling kicks out of the back of their cars or in parking lots. Lemme point something out, as illegal as that is, most dudes arent gonna care how they get their fix as long as the fix is real. If a coke head was offered coke out of the back of a car in the parking lot for 20$ cheaper than getting it from his dealer, he would end up going for both. When you got a problem, sometimes the law dont stop you. (word to the wise, dont buy the stolen kicks, it can get you in trouble, since you are buying stolen goods, DONT DO IT) Back to the story....Junction City police Chief believes that this heist is connected to the same one from late December where a truck filled with about 4,700 pairs of J's valued at over $200,000 was jacked and recovered in the Iowa area.
Word to the wise, if the writers and artists here at DRIPT can offer you some advice. Dont buy kicks off some dude on the street or in a parking lot. Get em from a store or from online. People get in trouble for buying stolen goods all the time and we would hate to hear it happen to a fellow sneaker head. Also if someone is selling some brand new kicks and the release date isnt out yet and its from the back of the car, i would be suspicious about their authenticity too, so be on the look.
Keep it real while Keepin it legal. Get DRIPT. ...OH and stay in school.

What is a better feeling to a new professional athlete, love from their fans or love from sponsors?
Blake Griffin is clearly getting both. Recently given a player exclusive from Nike of the Hyperdunk 2011, Blake Griffin should be one of the most excited young talents about his career and where it is heading. We also want to add that this is the first that anyone has seen of the Hyperdunk 2011 and of course its shown to the public in a hot! colorway that no one will probably ever get their hands on.
Featuring similar Flywire construction to previous Hyperdunks, this one also boasts a different make-up in the heal. The upper sporting a red/spark red material with black swoosh is placed upon a grey/translucent out-sole with different panels using different shades of red and "earthquake" graphics. Some of the new additions to the Hyperdunk are the heel cup similar to the Kobe 6's, the carbon fiber, and the glow in the dark paneling, which might only be featured on this PE.
The reason this is called the 10.0 and uses the number on the bottom of the right shoe is because 10.0 is the highest rating on the richter scale, which is the means of measuring earthquakes. The sole has a red midsole with red "ground pounding" graphics and its on top of a grey out-sole which is part of the glow in the dark features. The logo/image under the left shoe is the markings that the richter scale makes when it picks up its reading
In our most recent post we introduced you to Kid Icarus and Falling Star. In other big news, Melo moves to the Knicks and makes them something real again.
