JORDAN RETRO 5 ‘CEMENT’ – AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM ET

Jordan Retro 5 'Cement'

Remember the iconic AJ 4 ‘Cement’ that Buggin’ Out, a character from Spike Lee’s classic Film “Do The Right Thing,” made famous when he used a toothbrush to clean his Js? Jordan Brand took inspiration from that historic colorway on another classic Retro shoe. The Jordan Retro 5 ‘White Cement’ was originally thought to be a custom, but it will officially release this weekend. Two classics combined? That’s a must-have for your rotation. Men’s $189.99, Grade School $139.99.

GIRLS’ JORDAN RETRO 5 – AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM ET

Girls' Retro 5

Jordan Brand is dropping a Jordan Retro 5 for ladies this weekend as well. The Girls’ Jordan Retro 5 is dressed in a black and white color scheme with pink accents on the tongue and shark teeth. An iced outsole completes the fresh look that definitely deserves a spot in your rotation. Cop this girls’ exclusive Retro 5 while you can. Girls’ $139.99.

NIKE KYRIE 3 – AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM ET

Kyrie 3

If you’re aiming to kill it on the court and look fresh in the process, this Kyrie 3 colorway is for you. Outfitted in an all-black colorway, the shoe features uniquely patterned detailing on the outsole that gives it a premium look and feel. Cross ’em up and look good in the process – It doesn’t get any better than that. Men’s $119.99, Grade School $99.99.

NIKE PG 1 – AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM ET

PG1

While the Kyrie 3 comes in an all-black look, another one of Nike’s signature basketball shoes went the opposite direction. The PG 1 is outfitted in a mostly white colorway with black Nike Swoosh and the PG logo accents. An iced outsole adds to the look. The PG 1 is all about top performance on the court, but this clean colorway is an added bonus for sure. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Men’s $109.99, Grade School $89.99.

NIKE AIR MAX 97 ULTRA – AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM ET

Air Max 97

A classic from 1997 returns this weekend in the Nike Air Max 97 Ultra. Since its debut 20 years ago, the Air Max 97 continues to drop jaws with its sleek lines and futuristic design. While the idea behind its design is often attributed to the look of bullet trains and ocean waves, the actual inspiration comes from the clean complexion of the original designer’s favorite mountain bike. Eastbay will have multiple colorways available, so add a classic to your rotation this weekend. Men’s $159.99.

JORDAN TRAINER 2 FLYKNIT – AUGUST 5 AT 10 AM ET

Jordan Trainer

The Jordan Trainer 2 Flyknit drops this weekend in a classic blue and white colorway as a nod to Michael Jordan’s alma mater. There is UNC branding on the tongue and Tar Heel branding on the back tabs to complete the look. It’s not all about the style, though. The Jordan Trainer 2 Flyknit is built for the gym, so the Flyknit construction and midfoot strap are built to provide supportive lockdown that lets you crush your workouts in style. Men’s $139.99.
