Air Jordan XX2 Stealth Cat Figure by Brian Flynn

Posted by samplekickz on 28 April, 2007

air-jordan-cats-xxv.jpg

During the 2007 All-Star game, Jordan Brand release a series of figures inspired by the Air Jordan XX2. Since the XX2 was created with the stealth bomber in mind, these XX2 figures took a similar approach and were themed as pilots of the shoes. As well, Michael Jordan often considered himself as a “black cat” on the court. Together these ideologies formed the XX2 Stealth Cat figure.

Each characteristic of these figures maintains a relationship with the shoe it is modeled after. The whiskers represent the zig zag pattern of the sneakers while the vents on the back of the figures parallel the vents seen on the XX2’s. The similarities don’t stop there. Camo seen on the XX2 can also be seen on the front and back of the figure. Other little neat characteristics are the XX2’s worn by the figures as well as the Jumpman logo seen on the back. Each figure’s colorway is a representation of five exclusive Jordan Brand athletes in Ray Allen (green and yellow), Chris Paul (yellow and light blue), Joe Johnson (red and yellow), Rip Hamilton (Dark blue and red) and Carmello Anthony (light blue with yellow).

The figures were masterminded by Brian Flynn of Hybrid Design and Super7. The difficulty in the manufacturing process to create these figures is something to marvel at. These figures were created at a factory in Japan that is touted as the absolute best factory when it comes to clear vinyl. It is often a laborious process to create clear vinyl without any bubbles, however this Japanese factory is able to create perfect vinyl all the meanwhile maintaining consistent wall thickness throughout the figure.

Air Jordan Spiz’ike – White/Grey/Fire Red

Posted by samplekickz on 23 March, 2007

air-jordan-spizike-white-grey-red-3.jpg

Not many sneakers that Michael Jordan HASN’T worn on the court has escalated to the same success as the Air Jordan Spiz’ike (and the B’Loyal which is huge on the selling charts). But as long as they continue to sell, Jordan Brand will give the people what they want. It seems as though there has been a progression in colorways. Originally, many differing opinions existed with the white/red/green colorway, but slowly but surely each colorway has gotten progressively better reviews, and I don’t think these are any exception.

Air Jordan 1 Low “South Side” First Look

Posted by samplekickz on 15 March, 2007

air-jordan-1-low-south-side-1.jpg

Last week, we were the first to give you a peek at the Air Jordan 1 low “West Side” and now we have just received photos of the “South Side” Air Jordan 1 Low. The regional Air Jordan 1 lows supposedly took inspiration from NBA and NCAA teams in their respective regions. Immediately when we saw these, we thought of the Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks colors from yesteryear.

The shoes feature red patent leather, a lasered yellow swoosh and and white mesh. In fact, these are the first Air Jordan 1s to have a mesh toe since the Air Jordan 1 KOs from 1985. These will be releasing in late May as well.

Model: Air Jordan 1
Release Date: 05/26/2007
Price: $90

Air Jordan 1 Low “West Side”

Posted by samplekickz on 12 March, 2007

air-jordan-1-west-side-11.jpg

This summer the Air Jordan 1 is coming back in a big way. Not only are the “Black Toes” making a return for the first time since 1985, but also there are many, many colorways of the Air Jordan 1 high and low coming out. These sneakers we just received pictures of are the Air Jordan 1 Low “West Side.”

When I first saw these, I couldn’t help but think of the resemblance they have to other shoes in the DTRT Package; however, the blue appears more to be more of a carolina blue than a royal blue. Whatever the case, there will be many who will want to scoop these up when they release in May for $90. You can score a pair a few months early and have people asking “Where’d you get those?” by grabbing a pair from our friend NikeFans_Co who graciously supplied us with detailed pics.

Air Jordan 3 Cool Grey Early Sample

Posted by samplekickz on 18 January, 2007

aj-3-early-sample.jpg

This is a very interesting find, I have heard the Air Jordan III above was a early sample of the Cool Grey’s that will release in March. Some major changes were done by Jordan Brand, which is a good thing. Some people seem to like this color way more, and some hate it, so it is personal preference.

jordaniiidtrt01.jpg

This upcoming Jordan III, previously thought to be a another Air Jordan tribute to Mike’s High School, Laney has finally been cleared up. For those unfamiliar with “Do the Right Thing”, it was a film directed by Spike Lee and contains the infamous scuffing of a Jordan IV… anyways the colors of these III’s as you can see reflect the movie poster for Do the Right Thing, as well the III was the first shoe Spike Lee worked together with Jordan Brand on. Look for a pack to come along with the shoes so stay tuned!

Air Jordan XX2

Posted by samplekickz on 6 January, 2007

air-jordan-xx2-white-main1.jpg

Just the other day, we had the privilege to report to you the Air Jordan XX2 Low 5/8 Black/Red color scheme, and today we get the chance to show you the White/Orange Blaze-Univ color. At first glance it may be pretty hard to see any orange, but the Jumpman sign on lace holder is orange, and on the catalog sheet it shows the Jumpman at the heel orange. Expect them to release in July 2007. Via Kenlu.

jordan-sample-xx2-basketball-main.jpg

While doing my daily searching on Ebay I came across a lot of pictures of the Air Jordan XX2 Basketball samples. At a closer look, the detail of the basketball leather really gives this shoe personality. I know many sneaker heads out there have mixed feelings on them, but the work, design and thought put in the Air Jordan XX2 Basketball is well done.

ABC News touches the scene of the Sneaker culture with this 2 minute and 26 second segment. Basically ABC goes into the fact how sneakers are a nostalgia mark for many, and how much they are worth. They also talk about the Black/Gold Original Jordan 1 that sold in 2005 for $35,000. A nice video I must say, click HERE to check it out. Via Morningstar 777.
