JORDAN 2′SMOOTH OCTOBER 2011 LINEUP



At his best, Michael Jordan really was too good at many things; defense, dunking, dominating, etc. And in regards to the newest silhouette from Jordan Brand, the 2’Smooth, we can’t argue with naming any shoe that’s complimentary to MJ as being overly flattering. This silhouette utilizes a sole design very similar to the Air Jordan 20, which fittingly paid tribute to MJ’s legacy, with a low cut upper. These two colorways are set to drop next month with a $110 price tag attached.

After missing out on a pair of limited 
Fukajami x Nike Air Force 1s at UNDFTD his boy Vinnie hooked him up with 1-of-1s. Good for you Sal.

Onitsuka Tiger “Made in Nippon” Fabre Deluxe

Blooming under its status as a design and culture capital, Japan is at the epicenter of the nation’s retail shift as technology and traditional craft collides. At the centre of this movement, products with strong echoes of Japan’s cultural heritage such as ASICS Onitsuka Tiger are celebrating vintage-inspired designs and materials. Based on the idea to release an “Authentic Japanese” inspired series back in August 2008, ASICS Onitsuka Tiger released their “Made in Nippon” line which includes iconic and classic looks from the company’s original designs. Even today, “Made in Nippon” items certainly don’t seem outdated and staying true to the heritage could be the most contemporary thing ASICS Onitsuka Tiger could do.
Through this line, the sportswear brand implements a comprehensive approach to design by commissioning local small-scale Japanese shoemakers in creating sculpture-like sneakers. Products such as the basketball inspired Fabre Deluxe was produced by utilizing vintage leather and one of a kind dying technique to achieve a highly unique and personal finish to the sneaker.

No official release date for the Dave White x Air Jordan 1 “Wings For the Future” has been officially announced yet. However, new images of this pair are now available. This collaborative pair sports a casual, paint-splattered look that artist Dave White has become known for and is set in red, white and black tones. This theme is particularly striking because of the Swoosh-less Air Jordan 1 silhouette as well as the interesting use of a metallic silver inner liner and elephant print accent panels. All Dave White x Air Jordan 1 proceeds will go to Jordan Brand’s WINGS for the Future initiative. Check out more images below and let us know what you think.
