It appears that Nike is aiming to reacquaint us with some unheralded Barkley models as we approach the release of the Foamposite-based Barkley hybrid shoe. One such model is the Air Max 2 Strong, which features the unique heel-strap and the neoprene bootie fit and classic ‘FORCE’ emblem at the tongue. This simpler Black/White colorway definitely serves as a simpler option compared to that ‘Godzilla’ print in the Suns colorway, so if you’re in the lookout for these, check Nike Sportswear Basketball retailers soon because Sneaker Politics has these ready to go at their Lafayette and Baton Rouge locations.
This is kinda like a big deal if you’re a avid Jordan head. The “Nike Air” will be restored to the heal of the Retro 88 III (after a 10 year debate) which is said to be droppin’ in Febuary. Hopefully these will pop up early on Flight Club or AIR Knight……..fingers crossed.
The greatest show on TV premiers its third season tonight at 9pm on HBO. Boardwalk Empire. If you like any of the following movies, you will love Boardwalk Empire: Scarface, Goodfellas, Heat, Casino, Carlitos Way, The Departed. Boardwalk Empire has created some already notorious and notable characters from Nucky Thompson (the absolutely ruthless & crafty politician/gangster who makes most of his bread bootlegging liquor and don’t mind murkin’ a mufucka every now and then if necessary) Chalky White (the thick faced, take-no-shit-from-no-man country boy from the south who moved north to provide a better life for his family.) Arnold Rothstein, the very intelligent, cool and calculating Jewish gangster from New York who favors making money over murder. And lets not forget about Margaret Schroeder, the Irish ride-or-die bitch for Nucky who smashed the homie, gave away millions of dollars worth of Nucky’s land and still stands to tell about about it……well, at least up until season 3. Because its one thing we learned in the season 2 finale: NOBODY IS SAFE on Boardwalk Empire!! Anybody can get murked. RIP Jimmy.
All white Chuck Taylors droppin’ in the middle of the Fall? Yep…….Seems a little late but when you’re a legendary brand like Converse x Chuck Taylor, ordinary rules do not apply. So here we have the COMPLETELY white Undefeated Fragment All Stars. No exact release date has been announced yet, so stay tuned for an update. Yo Gotti would love these jawns.
A few weeks ago they had a highly publicized and celebrated release in NYC. Now it looks like the Ewing 33 High will drop nationally Saturday September 29th at 33 select locations across the country. Either they are being strategic w/ the teasing of the release of the Ewing 33, or retailers just aren’t as interested as expected. Anyway, 9/23 it is.
The Air Jordan V was the first Jordan and the first Nike shoe to feature the reflective & translucent materials. Not to mention the precursor to MJ’s first three-peat. Rumor is these will drop January 26, 2013…..stay tuned.
