The Jordan brand continues to go hard with Premium 4s. Last year, the premium shoe was the “Labs” but this year the brand a myriad of materials that have added to the classic 4.

Headlined by pony hair and top-of-the-line leather, the Jordan 4 Premium is a real neck snapper and is something you could almost rock with a suit. They will run you $400,  so you are getting what you pay for.

Name: Copper
Silhouette: Jordan 17

For all you hype beasts out there the Jordan 17 is a retro, so don’t sweat that. The OG Jordan 17 was the shoe Mike wore when he came out of retirement the second time with the Washington Wizards. Jordan wore this Copper model when he played for the Wiz and personally I think it’s cool we are getting a retro that’s not Bulls or UNC colors.

The hints of gator skin and copper tie the shoe up well and the purple accents throughout the upper round it off. It’s a nice unconventional shoe to have in any collection.

Paying homage to his high school, Lower Marion in Philly, the Kobe 11 “Aces” is a call back to the start of the mamba. With four games left in Kobe’s historic career, Nike is packing in the shoes to take us back to where to where it all started.

The real question is are we going to get an Italy pair?
