Happy Birthday MJ! As our form of celebration, here’s a video I stumbled upon today: all of the Air Jordan commercials in one video. That’s right, you’ll get sucked in for potentially all 30 minutes of every Air Jordan commercial ever created, beginning with the Air Jordan I that was banned by the NBA. Man, I got sucked in because I love the 80s retro style in general and Nike’s narrator back in the day. And oh yeah, because Michael Jordan is sort of a hero of mine. Enjoy!
Readers, this image may make us a little salty that Kanye West left Nike. Apparently, an Air Jordan VI ‘Donda’ was in the works by Kanye West & Jordan Brand while ‘Ye was still there. The shoe features a floral pattern and ‘Donda’, a dedication to Kanye’s late mother, in the insole. Needless to say, there would have been immense hype for this shoe. With ‘Ye’s move to adidas, it looks like this will be all that’s ever seen of the AJVI Donda. One more (blurry) look below:

Drake‘s OVO Jordans are the new hottest shoe we can’t have. And that unofficial trophy (no pun intended) is only more warranted after October’s Very Own & Jordan Brand finally released some official images.
Browse the gallery above for the Jordan X and Jordan XII OVO versions. The black and white colorways are branded with the ‘OVO’ and ‘owl’ logos. I don’t really have anything to critique on these, design-wise. All four colorways are so clean. I especially like the balance of leather on the black colorways.
Where I would like to critique these is availability-wise. Complex says that the shoes are only limited to Drake and his OVO camp so we can only rely on prayers to find a way to get ’em on our feet. Or maybe get an invite from OVO… but I guess it’s no new friends
The new Infrareds are on the way soon and on the way for the Air Jordan VI! February 15th, to be exact so mark your calendars (and shop safely!). While I know bright red shoes don’t go with many outfits, I like to have a pair of those to spice things up and I can’t think of any better sneaker to update my go-2 choice. Your thoughts?
