In recent years, the Air Jordan brand has not been afraid to mash-up several classics. Whether it’s the critically-acclaimed Spizike line or the short-lived Air Jordan Fusion series, the Air Jordan brand continues to push the envelope. The same mantra continues with the continuation of the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99. The latest colorway of the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99 incorporates a Black and Gym Red aesthetic that acts as an omage to MJ’s final shot as a Chicago Bull. Entitled “Last Shot”, this Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99 model will incorporate much of the styling and hues of the Air Jordan 14 that MJ wore as he sank the game-winning jumper against Byron Russell in Game Six of the 1998 NBA Finals. The Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99 “Last Shot” will hit select Air Jordan retailers on September 6th. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for all the latest info involving the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’99.

Kevin Durant has re-upped with Nike, keeping the flow of new Nike KD 7 colorways consistent. Continuing the story of KD’s fascination with everything weather as a kid, the Nike KD 7 “Easy Money” pays tribute to Ben Franklin and his famous stormy kite experiment in June 1752 with lightning that proved that it really was a stream of electricity. Finding an alternative angle to represent the weather-graphic, this style code embodies the $100 bill that Benjamin famously stands on, tying it into Durant’s “Easy Money Sniper” nickname. Light brown on the forefoot fuses with mystic green on the Foamposite heel section, finished off with bright detailing and a gum bottom.
