#ClatsAndKicks Vol. 8 – Jordan Brand : Past, Present, & Future

This week is huge for Jordan Brand. They have 4 big releases and only one of them is an actual retro. The two new models still contain aspects of past air Jordan’s which contrast against new elements to create a revolutionary shoe. Will these evolved Jordan’s open new horizons? Or will they eventually be overshadowed by classic retros?

FIRST here is a mashup of the heat we saw at this past weekend’s DunkxChange X SF which took place at the home of the Golden State Warriors, A.K.A. DubXChange.”

The Jordan 1 is back. The first pair are the Jordan 1 X Nike SB’s. The Jordan 1 was a popular skateboarding shoe when it first came out in the 80’s. Nike has also mashed up their Dunks with popular Jordan colorways, but this marks the first time they team up to create one shoe. The 2nd pair of 1s are the AJKO. Originally released in ’85, they make for a rare pair to own. The all upper canvas material showcases its vintage look, and they’re back once more as a top release this week.”

Last year we got to see the LeBron 10 released in various materials such as Cork, Denim, and Suede. The pack known as the “EXT” pack created a concept that made for amazing shoes in limited quantities, which translates to high demand and reselling prices. This time we get to see the KD 6 get the EXT treatment. The Floral KD 6 has an elegant flower pattern across the uppers, balanced out with a white midsole and clear soles. What can we expect next from the KD 6 EXT?”

Much hype surrounded the Jordan Future’s over the past few weeks. With a unique design to go along with the Jordan 11 silhouette and sole, these are very appealing to the sneaker community. The 2 pairs released this week are being compared the the Jordan 11 “Bred’s” and “Space Jams”. Can these be the Jordan of the future (no pun intended)?”

Don’t forget to tag #ClatsAndKicks for a feature on our blog! This week, we take a look at my personal lace swap. My love for Sk8-Hi Vans, I can’t describe but once I saw these all blue suede vans, I instantly knew I’d throw these Rastaclat Asphalt Laces on them. The idea came from my Jordan 3 True Blues. I want to see what you’re lace swapping and match ups of your #ClatsAndKicks!
