Dope Kicks: Nike Air Jordan IV Retro White/Cement (Tech Gray?)

Posted in Sneakers with tags , , , , , on November 29, 2011 by prolifik1

There are several reasons why I got out of the “shoe” game. Quality and the stupid nonsense associated with purchasing them. I can’t knock on Nike/Jordan Brand though, I’m a sucker for certain models of the Air Jordan.

With the Black Cement III’s that dropped this past Black Friday, the Concord Air Jordan XI’s are next on deck for December.

I may simply pass just so I can look forward to the White/Cement IV’s in February. Only debate now is the shade of gray on the IV’s. For the sneakerheads, it’s obvious that it’s dark and maybe called “Tech Gray”, while others think Nike will get their act together and actually release them with the actual “Cement” shade of gray.

I wish I didn’t pay attention to these silly sneaker releases knowing I can easily spend all that money on the car hobby. We’ll see. Maybe 2012 will be a more fruitful success for me. Stay grindin’…

iWant: Nike Air Jordan III Retro Black/Red Cements

Posted in Fashion, Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , on November 7, 2011 by prolifik1

Why does this have to release on Black Friday?

I’ve been retired from the shoe game, but I still want certain pairs of J’s without the hassle of lining up in some ridiculous line! It was so much easier back in the day when I had hooks. Well they were easy to cop in general back in the 90’s too.

I miss those days! 😛

Purchasing these will not only be a task, but a journey.  I think I’ll try getting them online, which is already tough!  We’ll see how this pans out. I easily want 2-3 pairs of these. Easily one of my favorite Jordans of all time!

In commemoration of Japan’s first ever Jordan Brand held basketball tournament. They are releasing special edition Air Jordan V retro in a pretty dope colorway (could compliment well with Lakers or even Steelers fans)

Air Jordan 2011 Black/Black

Posted in Fashion, Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , , on February 1, 2011 by prolifik1

Kinda hard for me to like these. Though it looks a lot better in this colorway than the previous colors posted a while back. They should of made it literally all black (make the inner tongue and that ugly mesh on the side black).

These are kinda growing on me, but I still wouldn’t cop at retail. lol Nike outlet for sure…

Sneak Peak: Nike 2011 Black History Month Pack

Posted in Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , on January 15, 2011 by prolifik1

This year’s 2011 Black History Month pack includes the Air Jordan III, the Kobe VI’s and a pair of high top Converse, along with a random pair of Air Force I’s following the theme.  These come with a theme of black and gold.  The gold is in reference of all their achievements and contributions to the game of basketball. These are suppose to commemorate Julius Erving, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant for practically revolutionizing the game of basketball.  All three have contributed so much to the game, as well as accomplished many feats that so many wish to achieve.  No release date has been set.

I’m feeling those Kobe VI’s!!!

For once, I don’t care much about the Jordan III’s…

Yes, those are a pair of Converse’s.  For those confused, Nike bought Converse several years ago.
