Welcome, sneakerheads. Here are your top 5 sneaker releases for today, June 21st. Most of them are Nike’s Jordans or Air Force with a side of Yeezy and Lebron.
Air Jordan, 1-Mid Style
First, Nike’s Air Jordan 1, mid. This sneaker features a “Crimson tint.” The design alters the colorblocking and offers variants for kids, opening up the palette. Larger sizes will also be available accomodating more consumers.
The colorway consists of pink that comes off salmon colored. Then, black and white finish up the rest of the leather paneling in the sneaker. The iconic black stamped air jordan logo appears and the jumpman jordan logo finishes off at the heel. The style is classic and clean. The shoe will retail for $115.
Nike’s Lebron 8, Low Style “Miami Nights”
Lebron’s 8 “Miami Nights” low style sneaker. The colorway consists of White, Red, Glass blue, and White inspired by the neon nights of south beach, Miami. Finished off with a confetti like speckling which could hint at Lebron’s successful championship run. Lines run at diagnals almost like spotlights or club lights articulating bringing that club scene style to the basketball sneaker.
Under, the sneaker continues in a bright red color tone and features a light blue lion insignia that pops in the middle of a triangle. The finishing touch of Lebron’s signature followed by a small nike swoop in miami red sets the sneaker into collector history. The shoe is very much designed and inspired with Miami, Florida in mind. The men’s sneaker will run $180.
Nike’s Air Force Ones
By all appearances there seems to be a safari animal print theme going on with the two Air Force Ones release. Collector’s love a series and this will be a collector favorite, no doubt about it. Let’s check out the two Air Force Ones sneaker releases further.
First, Daktari Striped Nike Air Force 1, Low style.
This sneaker drops with zebra-esque prints, though blotted in black and tinted in orange. Then, along the overlays all are assentuated in a bolder “Fuel Orange” suede. Accompanied with white leather and a brighter “Atomic Orange” Swooshes, gum pink bottoms finish underfoot. Ultimately, it appears a light orange to a bit darker than salmon. The Zebra prints are dressed up with the orange and create a less boring shoe. FInished off in black and orange inside, the bold sneaker makes quite the impression. These Air Forces will also run $130.
Second, Blue Leopard Patterned Nike Air Force 1
Nike’s Leopard patterned Air Force 1 sneaker is adorned in Leopard spots on the toe, heel, and lace collar overlay. The colorway consists of a pure platinum, black, particle grey and finished with light but bold blue. While, most of the sneaker is gray and platinum leopard, it is suplemented with a blue fury accent adorning the Swoosh logo. Also, the light, bold blue appears on the tongue and the heel. The inside is colored in Black and White contrasting the busier style design. Parts of the tongue and upper heel is also covered in a bit of black leather which grounds the busy style of the shoe. Undersole is seethrough clear/white rubber. Finally, upon release, the sneaker will run about $130.
