JORDAN AJ XXXII MID ‘ROSSO CORSA’ – SEPT. 23 AT 10 AM ET

AJ 32 9.22 Blog

MJ’s 32nd signature shoe is finally ready for its day in the sun, and the ‘Rosso Corsa’ is the perfect colorway to start things off. Its nickname comes from the popular shade of red that adorns many of Italy’s fastest race cars, but the similarities between the shoes and the car don’t end with the paint job. From its Flyknit construction to its Flightspeed technology and even the launch button in the sockliner, these shoes are truly in a class of their own when it comes to performance and style — just like the sports cars themselves. Men’s $184.99.

JORDAN RETRO 11 LOW IE ‘FIRE RED’ – SEPT. 23 AT 10 AM ET

Retro 11 9.22

In 1996, Mike debuted a special player-exclusive colorway of his AJ 11 Lows that had sneakerheads clamoring for their own pair. Well, it may have taken over two decades, but those dreams have finally become reality. These retros feature a white leather upper with gym red overlays for a classic look that somehow always stays in style. Men’s $169.99.

JORDAN GIRLS’ RETRO 6 LOW ‘SUN BLUSH’ – SEPT. 23 AT 10 AM ET

Retro 6 9.22

Made exclusively for girls, the new Retro 6 ‘Sun Blush’ is another head-turner from Jordan Brand. A black textured-leather upper gives this low-top shoe a smooth look and helps draw attention to the bright pink, translucent outsole and chrome lacelock. This is sure to be a key piece of your wardrobe all season long. Girls’ $119.99.

NIKE AIR MORE UPTEMPO ‘KNICKS’ –  SEPT. 23 AT 10 AM ET

NIKE AIR MORE UPTEMPO ‘BARELY GREEN’ – SEPT. 23 AT 10 AM ET

Air More Uptempo

The shoe made famous by basketball legend Scottie Pippen pays homage to one of Chicago’s oldest and most-heated rivalries. The ‘90s were full of incredible NY v. Chi-Town games, and some of the battles between ‘Pip and NY C Patrick Ewing will be talked about for generations to come. The classic NY orange-blue-white colors make up the shoe and Ewing’s now-retired #33 graces the heel — a perfect way to pay tribute to the mightiest of foes.

And ladies, we’ve got a special treat for you — the first-ever women’s specific Uptempo colorway. The ‘Barely Green’ is a fresh take on a classic shoe and is as stylish and comfortable as it gets. ‘Knicks’: Men’s $159.99Boys’ Grade School $129.99. ‘Barely Green’: Women’s $159.99.
