JORDAN RETRO 10 ‘I’M BACK’ – MARCH 18 AT 10 AM ET

Jordan Retro 10

He’s baaaaaack. On March 18, 1995, Michael Jordan announced that he was returning to pro basketball. The red text along the heel pull tabs read ‘I’m Back’ and ‘3.18.95’ to commemorate that historic date. The outsole, midsole, and upper are made up of a clean white color while the ankle and lacing area is black. It’s a luxurious look for a truly legendary moment. Men’s $190.00. Boys’ $140.00.

NIKE KYRIE 4 ‘VENUS FLYTRAP’ – MARCH 16 AT 10 AM ET

Kyrie’s game is deceptive — he lulls defenders into a trance, letting them think they can guard him, then strikes in a millisecond with vicious dribble moves. This colorway of the Kyrie 4 is inspired by the new Nike Kyrie Flytrap shoes and the venus flytrap plant itself. It’s the perfect way to showcase your own deadly moves and lethal speed.  Men’s $120.00.

NIKE PG 2 ‘THE MOMENT’ – MARCH 15 at 10 AM ET

From his first time setting foot in a basketball court, Paul George has been consistently determined to prove everyone who overlooked him wrong. The latest colorway of his signature shoes is based around that passion and urge he has to overcome any obstacle. It’s the perfect shoe to rock while the best teams in college basketball compete to create their own legacies. Men’s $110.00.

NIKE BOYS’ LITTLE POSITE ONE ‘SPACE JAM’ – MARCH 16 AT 10 AM ET

Taking inspiration from the iconic Jordan Retro 11 ‘Space Jam’, these Nike Little Posite One shoes are the perfect way to outfit your little baller with big-time style.
