JORDAN RETRO 13 – JAN. 20 AT 10 AM ET

1.18 Jordan Retro 13 Story

Black. True Red. Light Olive? You heard that right — these Jordan Retro 13s have a truly unique style. Olive may not seem like too common of a Retro shoe color, but they actually first appeared in 1994 on the Retro 9s. The fresh look can be worn a ton of different ways and stands out without showing off. It’s a classy take on a classic silhouette. That traditional mesh and leather upper is updated here to full suede for added durability during rough winter weather. Rock them with confidence and swagger. Men’s $190.00. Boys’ $140.00.

NIKE AIR FOAMPOSITE ONE ‘ABALONE’ – JAN. 20 AT 10 AM ET

1.18 Nike Air Foamposite

A premium release for serious sneakerheads, these Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Abalone’ kicks are as head turning as it gets. Abalones are a type of sea snail common in California that are famous for the iridescent interior of their shells. That unmistakable pattern is the theme of the Foamposite shell upper here, with a black outsole and Penny branding on the tongue and heel completing the look. Men’s $250.00. Boys’ $195.00.
