Throwback Thursday: Who is Johnny Kilroy?

Posted in Kicks, Throwback Thursday with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2011 by prolifik1

Man, I remember this back in the day as an 8th grader in junior high school. This was when MJ first retired so they made these Nike Johnny Kilroy commercials showing how he would go in disguise just so he can stay within the game.

MJ wasn’t the nicest of people in terms of attitude and what not, but you most definitely have to respect the passion he had for playing basketball. True love for the game!

Here’s a look back at one of the commericals for the Air Jordan IX.

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.

With the release of the Air Jordan III 25th Anniversary this upcoming Saturday. I thought it would be appropriate to post one of the Air Jordan III commercials this week starring Spike Lee as Mars Blackmon. Here’s Money Mike and Mars Blackmon in the Nike Air Jordan 3 commercial.

Nike Air Jordan III Silver Anniversary Edition and AJKO

Posted in Kicks, Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 25, 2010 by prolifik1

It’s that time again, the third series of the Air Jordan 25th Silver Anniversary line will be set to release this Saturday, March 27, 2010. It’s the Air Jordan III sporting the all white colorway with silver trimming. Decked out in white leather along with light grey elephant print. Price is $159.99

Also set to release this Saturday, is the long awaited AJKO retro.  These were probably the most rarest Air Jordan out there. Finding an OG pair in near or deadstock condition is tough! I think we had better luck winning the lottery than finding a pair. The wait is over though! They’re finally being retro’d even with added wear and tear on the soles (which I hate by the way, damn you Nike!) Price of the AJKO is $125, but you can pre-order them from my OG online SoCal shoe spot, Shoetrends, for $110 (White/Red only).

All three can be purchased at all UNDFTD retail stores along with other participating Jordan retailers.

Simply poetry in motion…

Nike Air Jordan II Silver Aniversary Edition

Posted in Fashion, Kicks with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2010 by prolifik1

It’s crazy how time flies! Nike/Jordan Brand is celebrating Michael Jordan’s 25th anniversary of his entrance into the NBA. This goes way back, this is obviously to commemorate the whole Air Jordan line too! Last month, we had the silver anniversary I’s. Now, the Air Jordan II Silver Anniversary Edition will be dropping this Saturday, February 27, 2010.  This sneaker comes laced in crisp white leather along with (3M reflective) silver accents. This will be available at all UNDFTD stores along with other selected Jordan retailers. Price is $129.99.

Real talk, this would of been hot if they actually put some work into these shoes by using Italian leather like the og II’s! C’mon JB, put some more effort into these retros. It’s been disappointing for the past 6-7 years.
