JORDAN RETRO 6 ‘ALTERNATE’ – MARCH 11 AT 10 AM ET

The Retro 6 will be the next shoe to get the ‘Alternate’ color theme that the Jordan Brand has been dropping recently. The ‘Alternate’ colorways were created back in the day, but put in the archives and never released. Now, Jordan is bringing some of these colorways back. The Retro 6 ‘Alternate’ likely would have been worn during the 1991 playoff run. Men’s $189.99, Grade School $139.99.

AJ XXXI ‘BLACK CAT’ – MARCH 11 AT 10 AM ET

The AJ XXXI is getting outfitted with the iconic ‘Black Cat’ colorway this weekend. The shoe features a black-and-white look and a black cat logo on the inside of each tongue. Though it may look like a simple shoe, it’s a colorway that has a special meaning to His Airness. As a kid, some of Michael Jordan’s closest friends nicknamed him ‘Black Cat.’ Men’s $184.99.

NIKE KOBE A.D. ‘OREGON’ – MARCH 10 AT 10 AM ET

Just before the madness gets going, Nike is dropping several college basketball team colorways. The Kobe A.D. features a black-and-yellow look that’s inspired by Oregon. There is an “O” logo on the heel and a wing graphic wraps the midsole to tie into the Ducks theme. Men’s $159.99.

 

NIKE KD 9 ‘TEXAS’ – MARCH 10 AT 10 AM ET

Just like Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant’s time at his alma mater was brief, but highly influential. The KD 9 dons the burnt orange color that Texas is well-known for, and the shoe’s heel tab says “Texas” to tie into the theme. Durant had one of the best freshman seasons of all time at Texas before moving on to the pros. Men’s $149.99.
