In a year dominated by the Air Jordan 1, why not bring back one of the rarest of all time? Rumored to be limited to just 240 pairs, the China-exclusive Air Jordan 1 XQ ”Xing Qi: originally released in 2007 and is one of the toughest finds for sneaker collectors- although the news of a 2013 re-release might make the hunt a bit easier thanks to the larger circulation. The Air Jordan 1 XQ will release on July 26th as a China-exclusive yet again at select Nike retailers, adding to the list of yet another re-release of a highly-coveted item. No word on the particular occasion of this release, but stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this sudden re-release and any other Jordans that are on deck for 2013.
It seems as if every Air Jordan III to release in 2013 is doomed to be judged against the standard set by the “Nike Air” sporting Retro ’88 pair. This, the forthcoming “Fire Red” Air Jordan III re-issue, falls just a little bit short of the benchmark set by said pair, but we can’t imagine that will result in them flying off of retail shelves any less quickly. Continue reading to see a full set of shots on the 2013 Air Jordan III “Fire Red”, which will mark the first time this colorway has been back in the new hangtag era, and tell us in the comments if they’ll be in your rotation come August.
We’re certain that as soon as the Nike KD VI hit NIKEiD folks were eagerly recreating past moments of greatness from Kevin Durant’s line. The “Galaxy” version of the Nike Zoom KD IV was definitely one of those, the pair still standing as one of the most sought after on the secondary market. This creation does a bang up job of adapting the colorway as the silver and orange combo is maintained, not to mention the overall shape of the Nike KD VI lends itself pretty well to Nike Zoom KD IV tributes. See the full shot after the jump and then tell us if you’ve had any similar ideas as far as NIKEiD treatments for this sneaker go.
The Air Jordan III is returning yet again in 2014 as we get a first look at a Retro colorway that has some stark similarities to the “Cool Grey” version that dropped several years ago. The shades of grey are a bit lighter, with a white lining adding to the clean touch, but the orange hints on the eyelets are certainly reminiscent of that older pair. There are indeed two Air Jordan III Retro releases confirmed for the Spring 2014 season – is this “Grey/Yellow’ version one of them? Check the full shot below and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this 2014 release.

Finally, a thorough detailed gallery of the Nike LeBron 11 and its tech-laden features is upon us, so let’s take a step-by-step look at all the beefy goodness we can expect with the next LeBron shoe. The Armorposite material that comprises the shell has already been noted, but there’s also Dynamic Flywire embedded beneath, a molded mesh-like panel at the in-step, full-length Zoom Air in the insole, vents carved into the chiseled frame, and sturdy mid-foot plate, and deep grooves on the outsole that should provide LeBron some traction when he makes lateral movements. Definitely a beast of a sneaker, so check out the detailed gallery and stay tuned for more updates as we approach a release this Holiday season.
Nike Basketball is undoubtedly the fastest growing and evolving line in Nike history. It’s hard to really pinpoint where it took off, but the late 90′s deserves some extra notice as that short era experienced a major boom thanks to developments like the Monkey Paw construction seen on the Nike Zoom Flight ’98 The Glove. Basically, a sturdy cage wrapped around the foot (as if a monkey’s paw was wrapped around your heel), giving super fast point guards like Gary Payton the needed stability when knifing through the paint. Although this type of build structure is out of use, Monkey Paw definitely shares the same ideology as Flywire in a sense, although the latter has become the preferred material as it is much lighter. In any case, we project The Glove to be popular on the basketball courts as well, so peep this full detailed gallery of the Black/White pair and stay tuned for full release info on this exciting Retro release.
There’s definitely a story behind the Weatherman and Thermal Map graphic prints on the Foamposites and Air Force 1 Lows, but until Nike officially lets those ideas out of the bag, we’ll have nothing else to do but look at these new photos of the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Weatherman”. It’s got the same pixelated graphic as the Foamposites, but with a gradient outsole and a clear Swoosh for a truly unique AF1 experience. A release date hasn’t been confirmed yet either, but who cares? Cop them right now from ny_5thavenue on eBay.
