The Air Jordan 3 Retro ‘Infrared 23′ is a study in contrast. The white and black colors on the midsole and upper balance each other out. The tumbled and smooth leather combine to form the classic Jordan 3 upper. The hits of Infrared 23 offer a pop of color against the timeless elephant print. All of these elements make up another classic colorway of the Air Jordan 3 Retro. If you’re interested in copping a pair this Saturday, check out our release details below.

The Jordan Six Rings, as you may know, is a hybrid of all of the sneakers Michael Jordan wore while winning his six championships. Jordan is now unveiling a new colorway: venom green. Featuring a black upper with the title on display in the shoe’s accents, lining and insole. Not to be forgotten is the classic elephant print in the mix. This is one sneaker in what seems to be a slew of “Venom Green” Jordan releases this weekend.
Available in stores and online Saturday.
The Nike Flyknit Chukka isn’t going anywhere in 2014. The sneaker embodies the deadly combination of a bold look paired with comfort for the upcoming spring season. This time around, the Nike sneaker fuses the look of a mid-top chukka with lightweight Flyknit construction on top of a proprietary Lunarlon sole. The silhouette has arrived in four different colorways: Grey/Green/White, Green/Black/Volt, Blue/Platinum/Obsidian and Crimson/Black/Orange. Check out the pictures in the slideshow for images of each of the kicks.
Available in select stores now.
Inspired by the outdoors, Nike’s ACG line introduces the “Lunar Incognito” in two fresh colorways: Bright Citron and Volt. The sneaker is seamlessly designed for functionality and comfort, as its various components are a Hyperfuse upper, a breathable mesh rear for added suppor and a speckled Lunarlon sole. The Bright Citron colorway looks to be a combination of a bold purple and orange, while the Volt is quickly becoming known as Nike staple colorway/outfit.
Available in select stores on Saturday.
Jumping off of the last Nike LeBron 11 to release, the Nike Zoom Kobe Venomenon 4 gets the “Diffused Jade” treatment as well. Designed for performance for both the court and pavement, the Venomenon sports a Hyperfuse construction for light, breathable durability. To get technical, the shoe’s outsole employs Blade Traction technology for durability on outdoor courts and forefoot Zoom unit cushions for comfort. The official colors that make up the sneaker are diffused jade, electric green and light loden.
Available online only Saturday.
Taking a look back at this month, the most remarkable and unexpected release in the sneaker world was the release of the Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October. While Kanye West consistently ranted on his stops on his Yeezus Tour about how he needed a fashion deal with a large corporation, and calling out Nike CEO Mark Parker out in the process, the shoe was a limbo about whether or not it would be released at all for the past year. When Kanye West announced that he inked a deal with adidas Y-3, the questions arose once more for the much-anticipated sneaker.
Then on February 9th, 2014, Nike’s (@Nike) Twitter account randomly announced that the sneakers were on sale. This caused a stir amongst sneakerheads globally because the shoe was sold out in a matter of 11 minutes. However, looking back at how high the anticipation was for the shoe and the magnifying glass on it — the decision to make it fair and drop it randomly was probably the smartest move at that point.
It’s no secret that the shoe is special and amongst one of the more coveted shoes in the world. And now, they’re out in the wild.
