According to the Nike SNKRS app, the leather on these joints is absolutely insane. I mean this looks like a dress shoe that you would rock to a wedding in case anyone wanted to mess around and get dunked on. My point is the shoe looks high fashion for a pair of Nikes. It’s a fresh look and tan goes with a lot. I’m a big fan.

Brand: Nike
Silhouette: Foamposite Pro
Name: Pure Platinum

foamsI think these are shots sent right at Mr. West and Adidas. In his recent song and Nike dis track “facts” Kanye got his shot and delivered a hefty blow spitting things like “Yeezy jumped over jumpman” and “gave LeBron a billi not to run away” among other slams. Now it’s Nike’s turn for a response and of course they took a subtle jab reusing a colorway that made the Nike Yeezy 2 famous.

The pure platinum or plat color of the Yeezy 2 was nothing short of dope. The cool grey offset with a little vibrant hyper crimson and mint color are raw. It works on anything but throw those colors on some Foams and you’re cooking.

Silhouette: Jordan II
Name: Just Wing It

It’s much publicized that the Jordan II is an underrated if not unrated shoe. Of course when Don C. goes to work on a pair, people will be out in force. But now that the limelight is off, you may actually be able to grab a pair.

The “Just Wing It”, like the “Master 12” is a call back to an old Jordan poster from the 90s that showed Mike leaping in a pair of black and white twos. Today’s iteration exhibits textured animal leather which adds a complexity to a very simple shoe. I really like the wing on the right heel tab. It’s a nice touch.

The Triple X has received varied reviews since its All-Star Weekend release, but I must say I really love this year’s silhouette. Ultimately, it’s a basketball performance shoe, but I really like these and I don’t even play.

The Carolina blue color and white can’t look bad, and with the icy outsole, it’s fire. Also, I really appreciate the patch on the tongue, it’s a nice little touch. I probably like this drop the most this weekend.
