Pics of the AirJordan 2011… you know, the one they didn’t want you to see

(wow… seriously?)

So after all the take down emails and so forth saying this ISN’T the new Air Jordan 2011 and how this is a  sample, it turns out not only is this the new Air Jordan 2011 but the “sample” was spot on.

Sooooooooo…. what do you think? Looks like some cross between the Air Jordan 11 (get it? 2011… Air Jordan 11?) and some new tech. of course being the blog that this is, you know I’m gonna drop my opinion on ya so here it is…

The Air Jordan 2011… Does it look like this or not?

(no wonder there hasn’t been a peep about these kicks in months)

Ok its a new year and promises have been made to who ever or where ever and such . Here we have what COULD be the Air Jordan 2011. Doing a search for the Air Jordan 2011 will show just what the sneaker looks like. IN FACT Dwane Wade of the Miami Heat wore the AJ 2011 (if they are really the AJ2011) on Christmas day.

(anybody notice D. Wade changing back to the AJ2010?)

So what’s the deal? Is this the sneaker? Many, and I mean MANY, sneaker blogs say yes it is. I actually hope THAT IT ISN’T and this is some sort of sample or maybe a AJ2011.5 version or a lite version or something.

Thanks @Fimpen – Air Jordan Evolution ’85 New Ad Page

(too bad my computer is so slow that the site doesn’t respond lol)

So MJ and team made a website to promote the Air Jordan evolution ’85 and its a good look. Many thanks to the Twitter poster for posting the link to the site.

Looks nice. Crashed my browser because its flash intensive but if I was on a faster computer, I am sure it would be a better experience.

Do I like the sneaker? Ehhh, its ok. As usual, I think this kick will have more kick with the right colorway.

Take a look for yourself RIGHT HERE.

WTF???

So who’s going to win tonight? Will Lebron’s new 8’s feel the heat? What about those other 2 or more players he plays with that I can’t quite remember there names right now think after the game? Will their kicks feel the “heat’ as well?

Does Nike and adidas bring out the lawyers? LMAO tune in at 7:30 to find out. More on this tomorrow! its gonna be a riot.

 


DAMN those Reverse Denim Bespokes is nice!!!

(totally worth the time and bucks to make it)

Its got style, its smooth, not too flashy but will easily be notice. That is what I like about good design. These are the best  pair of Bespokes I have seen in a while.

And there is a video too???

Oh and did anybody notice those “Air 2 The Throne” boxes in the back? Hmmmmm….

 

 


Kim Kardashian and Skechers… time to Shape Up that butt

(Kardashian x Skechers… omg)

Ok, seriously????? LMAO (no pun intended if you caught the connection) why did they do this? Don’t know if this was a good move, but make no mistake, work out sneakers are in right now and Skechers Shape Ups is somewhere on the top.

And yes, I know people who wear these (even BOOT versions) and swears by them.

Do they work? I don’t know and I am NOT going to find out personally by wearing them either.

The price isn’t too bad though if you are into these and on top of that, some of them have nice colorways. You want take a look at these, click RIGHT HERE for them.

Well Now… it looks like Converse has a new website

(hmmmm… when di they do this? looks good)

Looks like Cponverse went all flash happy and made a new website. I personally do not like flash that much (you here that NikeStore!!!) but this works out pretty well. They manage to show off a couple of cool looking kicks, whatever marketing push they currently got going, and the site sort of interacts with your cursor.

Already saw a pair of kicks I will be posting on tomorrow on the site.

So check it out if you wish. I think I may do a little more looking around and do a full review of the site at a later daye.

Air Jordan Fusion 6 + 17 = dude… WTF?

(no WAY I’m letting this one go)

I gonna have ALLOT to say about this one, for for now all I am gonna write is this…. Whahhahahahaaaahaha????!!!!

(PS – there are some good things to say about these kicks… the rest are, let me say, not so good)


Air Jordan x UNDERTOW… on hawt looking sneaker

(ummmm, me thinks Jordan should team up more often)

Now this is one good looking mix of colors and style. I think Brand Jordan should just let this be a general release (or at least a limited one) and give people what they want… a good colorway for a great sneaker.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ok, I’m just gonna say it – Air Jordan 2010, while may be one of the best Air Jordans made, looks like crap. Yeah I said it. These sneaker are a pair of kicks that need you to be very specific with materials and colorways in order for it to look good.

Now lets be clear, I am not talking about performance, I am talking about looks.

Please team up with somebody Brand Jordan, and get it poppin! This is an awesome colorway and collabo and to not allow others to get their hands on it seems a little off.

You can see the review of the kicks and so forth on SneakerFreaker.com RIGHT HERE.


Air Jordan 22 Omega Wallpaper…

(nice and yellow)

If I had to say one good thing about the Air Jordan 22… ok ok, other than the sneakers comfort level (very high)  and the ability to swap out cushioning pads (really nice)

So let me restate that – one of the best parts of the Air Jordan 22 was the sole. it looks so nice and it seemed like allot of thought went into it.  The best part is that not only does it look good, but it is very fuctional too.

So I thought to myself, it would make for a great wallpaper.

More to come, just thought I would give a taste
