JORDAN RETRO 14 ‘INDIGLO’ – AUGUST 13 AT 10 AM ET
It’s been a long wait, but the Retro 14 ‘Indiglo’ will finally make its return this weekend. The shoe was last released in 1999 and comes in a black, white, and vivid green colorway. It is an unusual color scheme for Jordan, and perhaps that is why the shoe has become such a hot commodity. It is one of the most sought-after Retro 14s, and after such a long wait, these are sure to go quickly. Men’s $189.99, Grade School $139.99.
JORDAN RETRO 12 – AUGUST 13 AT 10 AM ET
Michael Jordan is generally considered the best basketball player ever, but this shoe pays tribute to his other athletic endeavor. This Retro 12 draws inspiration from the minor league baseball club he played for after his initial retirement from basketball in 1994. The shoe comes in a white, grey, and black color scheme and drops in grade school girls’ sizes only. Grade School Girls’ $139.99.
AIR JORDAN XXXI – AUGUST 13 AT 10 AM ET
The AJ XXXI draws inspiration from the shoe that started it all, the iconic AJ 1. Designed with performance in mind, the AJ 31 features Flight Speed technology and a full-length Zoom Air Bag that provides hoopers with explosive flight and a smooth ride while playing. The shoe’s red, white, and blue color scheme will be showcased on the world’s biggest stage this summer. The AJ XXXI is a game-changer that will set the tone for Jordan’s performance basketball shoes for years to come. Like the AJ 1, this shoe defies expectations. Men’s $184.99.
UNDER ARMOUR CURRY 1 LUX MID – AUGUST 13 AT 10 AM ET
After plenty of success on the court, Stephen Curry’s first non-basketball shoe drops this weekend. The Curry 1 Lux uses the silhouette of the Curry 1, but it incorporates leather and suede materials to create a street fashion sneaker. Like his other shoes, this Curry 1 Lux represents the Bay Area – visually stunning and easy to like, but also dynamic, gritty, and determined. Men’s $149.99.
ADIDAS D ROSE 7 – AUGUST 13 AT 10 AM ET
As Derrick Rose prepares for a new chapter of his career in New York, his signature shoe pays homage to his hometown of Chicago. The D Rose 7 draws inspiration from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 with hints of flames throughout the design. More importantly, the shoe represents the city’s resiliency to rebuild after the fire. Rose shares that resiliency and perseverance, and his new shoe ensures that his hometown is always with him. Men’s $139.99.
