Catch the flu next Saturday, when one of the great Air Jordan 12s of all time — and perhaps the greatest sneaker-lore ever — returns to shelves.
I refer, of course, to the iconic Air Jordan 12 Flu Game, the eye-popping mix of black tumbled and red scaly leathers, but the shoe’s so much more than the aesthetics. The Flu Game XII is inextricably www.ewijkcvketel.nl linked to Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, when Michael Jordan, running a fever and barely able to stand under his own power, played anyway, dropping 38 points en route to a Bulls win. That victory gave the Bulls a 3-2 advantage in the series, a lead they never surrendered, and cemented the shoes MJ wore — these shoes — as a transcendent piece of footwear and sports legend.Marcus Jordan’s Trophy Room sneaker boutique in Orlando will have its grand opening Monday, and the event will be punctuated by a number of unexpected features and limited shoes.

(Or folks who can and strike out. Or who do get a pair but want to double up. Or anyone, really.)The shoe sports the same “MJ” pattern as the white pair, embroidered in gold and silver into the upper, but here it’s surrounded by black for a darker, more elegant look. Vibrant metallic gold touches appears on the black midsole’s speckles as well, along with signatures printed on the toe. Gold leather adorns the Nike Air Max 1 Damen reverse of the tongue as well, printed with “Heir” and “Jordan,” standing in for the production-run-number that appears on the white pair.Well, it’s official. In fact, it’s been official: The Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum is set to hit stores June 4. It’s all over but the crying. And the waiting.
So while you wait, feast your eyes on the latest looks at the hotly anticipated new colorway, which drapes solid navy over the Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost Dames Cordura-and-patent leather upper, a dark, rich palette that’s perfectly complemented by the crisp white midsole and timeless gum outsole.Classic athletics meet contemporary aesthetics this weekend, with the eagerly awaited debut of the Air Jordan 1 Low No Swoosh.

An icy outsole adds a cool clean touch, perfectly finishing off the look.The Air Nike Air Max 1 Femme Jordan 12 Melo makes its grand return to shelves this weekend, remaining impressively, eye-poppingly, compellingly faithful to the original.The classic colorway was worn, of course, by Carmelo Anthony while he was with the Nuggets back in 2004, an affiliation that informs the palette. White tumbled leather comprises the upper, starkly contrasted by powder blue on the liner, heel and outsole. The juxtaposition’s sharp, Nike Air Max 1 Femme but the soft shade of blue keeps the overall look clean, understated.It was only two weeks ago that we were getting our first look at the new AJ1, which sports a monochromatic premium leather upper and dearth of Swooshes, and wondering if the shoe would launch at all.

As it turns out that, that’s not even the most exclusive Jordan the shop will have.
Behold, the Air Jordan 6 Trophy Room, a shoe that, judging by its 1-of-1 production run, won’t likely be releasing. Aligning with the store’s motif, the shoe features a premium Adidas ZX Flux Damen grey leather upper split with a black tongue, while gold accents evoke . . . well, a trophy room.

Oddly, that’s not quite as sought-after as you’d think. Instead, the Air Jordan 5 Olympic Gold rocks a stunning metallic gold tongue as a nod to the medal that every world-class athlete seeks. The upper is otherwise clad in white leather and built atop a black midsole, neutral tones that Nike Free 5.0 Womens ensure focus remains squarely on the gold at the center of it all.
