Jordan Air Jordan Retro 1 High ‘Shadow’
Available in Men’s and Kids’ Saturday, April 14th at 10AM.

If you aren’t hyper for the new Shadows, you’ve probably been hiding in one. This brand-new silhouette brings some serious appeal for fans of the iconic range. Given the sellout success of most classic styles, this pair is expected to be hugely sought-after. This brand new silhouette and color way might appeal more to the classic iconic Retro 1 fans. Apart from the similar ‘Banned’ or ‘Royal’ Jordan 1s, this release lives in a sort of timeless aesthetic hall of its own. The new release of the ‘Shadow’ is a highly favored, but very understated basketball high-top.

Nike Air Max 98
Available in Men’s Saturday. April 14th at 10AM.

The Nike Air Max 98 has been a staple silhouette that embodies legendary Swoosh status. Extremely unique compared to other Air Max 98 colourways, this shoe takes some of Nike’s classic ’70s running features and combines them with a clean and modern design.

Nike Kobe 1 Protro
Available in Men’s Saturday, April 14th at 10AM.

Back in ’06, Kobe Bryant dropped 81 points against Toronto wearing his first signature Nike shoe. The Kobe 1 Protro Men’s Shoe honors that watershed moment in Kobe’s career. The upper material mix enhances playability and comfort, while Zoom Air cushioning provides court responsiveness.

Jordan WMNS Air Jordan Retro 11 ‘Rose Gold’
Available in Women’s now!

Jordan Brand continues their increased focus on the female sneaker consumer in 2018. It’s crafted with ultra-soft leather, metallic red bronze hardware, and an all-over rose-gold sheen that delivers a luxurious look for the summer.

Nike Lebron 15 ‘Four Horsemen’
Available in Men’s now!
Nike serves up a colorful take on the new LeBron 15 with this silhouette. Revisiting the silhouette for another vibrant offering, the Swoosh serves up a multi-toned “Four Horsemen” model. While the new “Four Horsemen” LeBron 15 bears some strong resemblance to the aforementioned “Fruity Pebbles” release, there’s a heavier emphasis on black detailing and a boldly-designed exterior that better highlights the contrast between colors.
Nike PG 2
Available in Men’s now!
Dressed in a Cannon, Volt, and Purple Venom color scheme. This Nike PG 2 features a full Purple upper highlighted with graphics that were used on the upper of the Kobe 6. Other details includes a Crimson inner liner, Blue laces and Volt branding.
Nike Air More Money ‘Trust Fund Baby’
Available in Men’s now!

If you want to make it rain, you might want to consider the new Air More Money. A hybrid sneaker featuring the Air Money upper and the classic Air More Uptempo outsole, the crep is painted in a stealthy colour palette of black and white throughout. Dressed in a rugged tumbled leather, a digital style font is used on the lace guard and heel, giving off a “black market” vibe and possibly referencing cryptocurrency, a fitting inspiration for a sneaker that is all about the money. Down below, a clear Air Max unit and white detailing on the outsole round the shoe’s aesthetic off.

Nike Air Span II
Available in Men’s now!

Taking it straight back to the old-school, Nike revive this performance silhouette in a choice of OG colourways. Now, that vintage aesthetic can once again be enjoyed on the streets. The ‘Black Pink’ Air Span 2 boasts some serious attitude. A combination of leather and lightweight nylon features which brings lightweight comfort and support. The full black upper is contrasted by a white midsole underfoot. This retains the low-profile aesthetic of the old-school design but modern upgrades ensure lightweight comfort.

Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit
Available in Men’s now!

Nike Air Max 270 Flyknit Men’s Shoe elevates an icon with a second-skin feel. Breathable and lightweight, its Flyknit constructed upper adds to the ultra-airy feel of a large Max Air unit.
