Here’s what you have to look forward to this week:
The iconic Jordan Retro 5 takes design inspiration from WWII fight planes, and the all-new ‘Take Flight’ colorway plays into that theme perfectly. The Retro 5 ‘Take Flight’ is armed with a military shade of green and a reflective camo print on the heel and tongue, as well as the classic ‘Shark Teeth’ design and an iced outsole. Men’s $189.99, Grade School $139.99.
Jordan Brand is also dropping a fresh Retro 5 colorway just for the ladies. The women’s-exclusive ‘Sunblush’ colorway features a classic white-and-black upper, and offers pink accents on the tongue and the ‘Shark Teeth’ for a pop of color. The iced outsole completes a look that will have guys wishing they could squeeze into girls’ sizes. Girls’ $139.99.
Following the release of five monochromatic ‘Mamba Mentality’ colorways, Nike is dropping the Kobe A.D. ‘Rise’ colorway this weekend. The fresh look features a dark blue obsidian color with yellow midsole that resembles a rising sun. Let us know what you think of this new Kobe colorway in the comments below. Men’s $149.99.
KD’s jumper is smooth as velvet, so dropping the KD X in a ‘Red Velvet’ colorway was the perfect way for Nike to celebrate KD’s first championship and the sweet taste of victory. The KD X ‘Red Velvet’ comes with a mouth-watering red and black colorway with a white speckled midsole finishing off the look. The KD X is focused on top-tier performance on the court, and a colorway that looks this good is definitely icing on the cake. Men’s $149.99. Grade School $124.99.
Last year, Nike dropped a Kyrie 2 colorway inspired by the original Nike Air Flight Huarache, and now the Swoosh is back with a similar theme. The Kyrie 3 ‘Kyrache Light’ takes inspiration from 1993’s Air Huarache Light with a mix of black, red, purple, and teal colors. Old school Nike fans and Kyrie Irving fans should all be hyped for this fresh release. Men’s $119.99, Grade School $99.99.
