Today we have ran across new images of them, an on-foot look and the expected release date.

Featuring patent leather in the obvious areas that the Air Jordan 11 would have, infrared on the Jumpman logo and the heel tab. Some are calling this pair speckled due to the speckles on the heel.

Nike KD 6 Easter -On Foot Look

Sat, 2014-04-12 17:49

With Nike prepping to release their newest Easter themed KD shoes next weekend, we thought it'd be cool to get some extra visuals of the newest sneaker, which has a super unique and eye-grabbing camo pattern. The Nike KD 6 shoes have multiple shades of green, with rabbit silhouettes overlapping to make the camo pattern, with orange accents. Inspired by the ever so popular easter egg "hunting," Nike places a rich green camouflage pattern all over the uppers. The accenting is provided by a yellow orange Nike Swoosh, and KD branding. Further orange accenting appears in the air unit on the soles. These kicks are dropping April 18 at Nike retailers, for $130! Check out this on foot look from DJ Delz on The Sneaker Addict show below! Are you planning on copping these shoes when they drop?

NIGO x adidas Originals Rivalry High Sample

Sat, 2014-04-12 17:20

A few previews of the upcoming NIGO x adidas Originals collaboration have made their way online, and are already taking bids on ebay. NIGO joined the adidas roster in early 2014, along with Pharrell Williams and Kanye West. In this first look at these collaboration samples, we're getting a new colorway option for the Rivalry High sneaker model.

The NIGO x adidas Originals Rivalry High Sample feature brown suede paneling on a white leather base, with black accenting. Along the toe cap and the rear of the uppers, a smooth brown suede wraps around the sneakers tall silhouette. White dominates the tongues, toe box, midfoot panels, and the outsole. For accenting, black leather graces the three stripes on the shoes and the midsole. The special feature of these shoes are the "25" branding tags on the tongues, which are symbolic of the February 25,  2014 announcement of NIGO partnering with adidas.

What do you think of these sample Rivalry Highs? Would you like to see more adidas and NIGO collabs in similar colorways? Check out the current bids for these on eBay now, and let us know what you think down below!

Air Jordan 3lab5 “Black / Cement” Customs by Mache Customs

Sat, 2014-04-12 16:36

In December we got the first release of the Air Jordan 3lab5 "Infrared 23," which combine different design elements of the AJ3 and AJ5. As a part of the Air Jordan Retro Fall 2014 release preview, the Air Jordan 3lab5 is set to make a reappearance in a Black / Silver colorway. Known all over the world for his custom creations, Mache Customs decided to create his own version of the 3lab5s. The Air Jordan 3lab5 Black / Cement customs by Mache Customs are mostly black, with grey elephant print covering the heel guards and toe caps. A tonal continuation of the elephant print spreads across the panels of the uppers, which compliment the black mudguard and front of the outsole. Sticking to the influences of the AJ3 "Black / Cement," Mache kept the original white midsole. A red Jumpman sits on top of the tongues to close out these kicks. I'm not sure about you, but I'm more of a fan of these shoes than the upcoming Air Jordan 3lab5 "Black / Silver." What do you think of these customs from Mache Customs?

Air Jordan 1 “Lasers” Customs by Kicks Galore

Sat, 2014-04-12 16:35

There's something that makes the Air Jordan 1 an undeniably cool shoe. The silhouette can never be duplicated, and every colorway is always a hit. With the recent major releases of the Bred and Royal Air Jordan 1 High OG shoes, the AJ1 seems to be making a bit of a comeback in 2014, with plans to release a suede edition of the aforementioned shoes. After releasing his Air Jordan Prism Pack of several other AJ models, the young and talented Kicks Galore took to a pair of the classic AJ1 to give them a laser-themed treatment.

The Air Jordan 1 "Lasers" customs by Kicks Galore see a black leather upper with electric lime laser graphics streaking across and throughout the shoes. While the toe box and midfoot panels of the shoe remain all black, the rest of the shoes see highlights of green beaming on the black base. Electric lime continues to add flair with the internal lining and on the laces. On the bottom, a darker green sets up shop on the outsoles.

The details of these shoes are impressive! The fading of the lasers all over the uppers is done perfectly, and Kicks Galore pulled this theme off without going overboard with the lasers graphics. Sometimes less is more, and to get that high quality aesthetic, you have to hold back sometimes. Great job, Kicks Galore! If you're looking to cop you a pair of these custom AJ1 "Lasers," you should contact Kicks Galore via Instagram, he's currently doing customs for $100! Check out some more angles of the shoes, down below and let us know what you think of these customs!

Air Jordan V (5) “Flash” Customs by Kickstradomis

Sat, 2014-04-12 16:33

Right off the release of his last Air Jordan 6 "Gold Baroque" customs, sneaker artist Kickastradomis digs into his Marvel Superhero Customs Series with Flash themed AJ5 sneakers. The Air Jordan V (5) "Flash" customs by Kickstradomis are predominately red with yellow accents along with a portrait of the Marvel superhero on the heel. Covered completely in an orange red color, the big features of these kicks are located on the back of the shoe. A mid-running Flash can be seen on the heel, sending electric shocks onto the midfoot of the uppers, just above the AJ5 netting. Flash is also showing his full support of MJ, by donning a yellow "23" on the chest of his red jumpsuit. The staple shark teeth are the only parts of the shoes that aren't red, but are instead yellow. Check out some more pics of these Kickstradomis customs further down below! How would you have done a Flash customs?

Air Jordan 1 Retro Mid Concord – Preview

Having just featured the Air Jordan 11 Retro Low Concord, we have another Air Jordan “Concord” sneaker, this time in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Retro Mid. While they are called “Concords”, there is a distinct difference with this pair versus the Air Jordan 2 and 11. The most obvious is the Black base upper (where as the 2s and 11s sport a White upper). The Air Jordan 1 Retro Mid Concord is finished off with a Concord trim and accents of White. While a release date is unknown, we do know that these will drop sometime in the Summer. Until then, check back with Sneakerfiles for the release date and additional info. Don’t forget to let us know what you think – cop or not?

Vault: Air Jordan 6 Original (OG) Sport – September Blue

Mon, 2014-04-07 01:01

Introducing to you a new series called The Vault. Each week we will dig through our collection and feature either a original, player exclusive or older retro.

This week we bring you the Original Air Jordan 6 ‘Sport Blue’ also known as September Blue. We felt it was only right since they are planning to retro for the first time.

Everyone now is calling them the Sport Blue, but when they originally released and years to come, many called them the September Blues. For the OG’s, we can’t say which one is correct. On the box label it reads ‘SPTBLU’, which many believed to be abbreviated for September.

The Original Jordan VI September/Sport Blue shown is in good condition for being 23 years old. They are deadstock, but have minor cracks and yellowing due to age.

Let us know what you would like to see next!
