Air Jordan V – Jordan Tokyo 23 Collection
Jordan Brand’s Tokyo center is called, appropriately, Jordan Tokyo 23. And while the shop is still under construction, there is no better way to get the hype train fired up than releasing photos of models crafted to celebrate the shop’s release. The main draw will be this yellow suede Air Jordan V (5) Retro, as its striking black and yellow (just try to not hum along to the Whiz song!) colorway already has people stateside begging for a domestic release. The outsole on the bottom even features a yellow jumpman, while the shop’s logo is embroidered onto the heel. The rumor is that it will release in late April, but rest assured that we will have the information for you as soon as they become available.
Jordan Kick Names T-Shirt
While there is no single source of where it came from, the nicknames dubbed by fans to each Air Jordan releases served as an easily identifiable marker for the editions. In addition, its purpose transcends merely just an object of desirability but as something of emotional memorabilia. Asked any Jordan aficionados where they were when the “Cool Grey” came out last December or the “Playoffs”, and they will recount each moment to the seconds. And for those new to this brotherhood of fanatics, there is the Jordan Kick Names T-Shirt, a “cheat sheet” of all the popular Air Jordan models conveniently printed on 100% cotton tee. Even if you don’t own a pair of AJs, the tees still make a great reference source to popular culture and street lingo. Available now through NikeStore.com

Supreme – Spring 2011 T-Shirts
After successions of winter storms and a freakishly cold Spring, Supreme, the Lafayette Street staple, is here to remind us that warmer weather is just ahead with a set of 6 graphic t-shirts. Unlike some of the more “snarky” graphics in the past, the new assortment is straight forward, with one as a tribute to late Soul music great Curtis Mayfield. The t-shirts will be available this Thursday, April 14th, at Supreme’s North America retail locations and online store, follow by availability at its Japan retail points this Saturday, April 16th.
Air Jordan VII (7) – Year Of The Rabbit & Bordeaux
This has shaped up to be the year of the Air Jordan VII (7) retro. Adding to the well-received Year of the Rabbit Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 2011, what better paring of animal and shoe than the “Hare” and this model that bore that name twenty years ago? This limited release features a monochromatic tongue, unlike that of the Bordeaux colorway due out soon, and a simple, direct colorway of white, red, grey, and gold. This has a more than slight resemblance to the Hare model first released in 1991, apart from the multicolored tongue and the red detailing on the jumpman, heel tab and laces, which are replaced by a dark gold/bronze.
While 19 years is a long time, the constant recollections by fans and the nostalgic images from that fateful 1992 NBA All-Star Game made us forget just how long this wait is, more accurately, the wait was. First worn by Michael Jordan at the 1992 NBA All-Star Game, the Air Jordan VII (7) in Black/Light Graphite-Bordeaux, or simply known as Bordeaux, was never on re-release schedule set by Jordan Brand till next Saturday, April 16th, when Jordan retailers around the globe will begin to sell them once again. Because of its rarity, its often deemed as one of the most sought after Jordan models. Let’s hope it won’t be another 19 years for us to see its return again.
