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!

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.

Air Jordan CMFT Max Air 12

Posted in Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2010 by prolifik1

Jordan Brand comes through once again with their CFMT series. This time, they take the classic Air Jordan XII and cross it with a classic Air Max shoe.

The result? An interesting hybrid of classiickness! It’s great to see this since Jordan Brand has been falling off the last few years of flooding the markets with retros in my opinion. This is sure a fresh of breath air and its something for former sneaker enthusiasts like me to actually appreciate these days.

These are set to release on  November 6th, 2010 for a retail price of $135 USD.  More colorways are supposedly going to follow after its release.

Jordan 2010 Fall Winterized Spizike

Posted in Fashion, Sneakers with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2010 by prolifik1

I stopped collecting Jordans for a good few years. It was a childhood obsession, but to me, they’ve fallen off for the most part. Sorry Mike, you’re one of my favorite players, but the brand has gone to shit.

Onto better things though, there are a few models and colorways that often saves this brand. Maybe it’s just me? Maybe my taste in Nike shoes in general have changed, or maybe I finally just matured and realized shoes isn’t everything. It’s just a hobby…

Anyways, these Spizikes are on point! I’m definitely feeling those black/anthracite ones. The dark cinder/black ones aren’t bad either!

For the Fall 2010 season, Jordan Brand welcomes its Winterized Spizike, decked out for the cold Winter months and offered in a couple of solid, fashionable colorways. Both a dark cinder/black and black/anthracite kicks off the upcoming season, each featuring premium leather/suede uppers with durable, rugged outsoles, while still retaining that classic aura of the Air Jordan look. A release can be expected in September 2010 through finer Jordan Brand stockists.
