JORDAN RETRO 1 HI FLYKNIT ‘RE2PECT’ – FEB. 23 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Jordan Retro 1 'Re2pect'

Derek Jeter may have retired, but his impact in the sports world will be felt for decades to come. His prescence in the sneaker game is staying strong, too, thanks to these special Retro 1 Flyknit kicks. As part of Jordan’s ongoing ‘Re2pect’ campaign, this modern take on the timeless shoe features a navy and cream colorway inspired by his New York team and gold trim along the Wings logo and tongue tag. Jeter’s ‘The Captain’ nickname can be seen through the blue translucent outsole. It’s a look that is truly fit for one of the greatest athletes of all time. Men’s $180.00

GIRLS’ JORDAN RETRO 13 – FEB. 24 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Girls Jordan Retro 13

From its gum rubber outsole to its black suede overlay to its white leather base, this Jordan Retro 13 is a treat built exclusively for female Jordan fans. This simple color scheme gives the shoe a classy, luxurious look which is topped off with gold accents along the tongue logo. It’s clean, it’s cool, and it’s certain to be in your sneaker rotation for a long time. Girls’ $140.00.

JORDAN WHY NOT ZERO. 1 – FEB. 25 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Jordan Why Not

Take a quick look at the latest colorway of Russell Westbrook’s signature Why Not shoes and you might assume that the inspiration comes from the team he leads in OKC. But this also pays homage to Russ’ past and the hard work that helped him get to where he is today. His father would put him through challenging practice sessions, spending late night after late night on his jump shot. Those long hours have obviously paid off and helped make him into the superstar that he is today. Men’s $125.00. Boys’ $95.00.

NIKE PG 2 – FEB. 24 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Nike PG 2

Westbrook isn’t the only one in Oklahoma City with his own signature shoe — Paul George has his own line with Nike as well. The PG 1s were a big hit and if the early reviews are any indication, Nike struck gold with the PG 2s as well. You can try out the forward’s latest model for yourself with this new colorway that is dropping this Saturday. His new team’s navy and orange colors are featured throughout and also serve as a great way to highlight all of the shoe’s new features. What’s your favorite part – the Flywire cables in the forefoot, the upgraded Zoom unit, the all-new dynamic wings? Let us know in the comments and make sure to pick up your own pair. Men’s $110.00. Boys’ $90.00.
