Ballerific Kicks: Six Jordans You Should Have On Your Radar


Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG White/Black-Varsity Red (Black Toe 2016)

The Jordan brand is one that is about legacy and culture. It is more than a shoe an athlete has created. It is a storied lineage coupled with modern history. Built on the very essence of Jordan himself, the brand fuses athleticism and fashion seamlessly. Every month there are hot releases that are a necessary addition to a collector’s vault.  With the next few months providing sneakerheads with heat, I picked six of the hottest Jordans that I will be adding to my collection.

Air Jordan 11 Retro Black/Dark Concord-White (Space Jam 2016)

11 | Space Jams  The Space Jams are back! Christmas just got that much better.  This time the all black and concord kicks are updated to resemble the Player’s Edition (PE) MJ wore.  Details such as MJ’s  second jersey number- No.45 appear on the latest design. If you are wondering the significance of the number 45; Jordan wore it throughout his high school career until made the varsity team. His older brother, Larry, sported the number. Jordan then opted for half the value of 45 (22.5) which he rounded up to 23.

Drops: December 17, 2016  Retails For: N/A

It’s a few I’m bringing home with me. Of course the Space Jams are one pair, but I am definitely feeling the  Heiress 1s.
