While the Air Jordan 1 hasn’t been sticking to its OG self in 2013, it’s been busy doing quite the opposite with the mashup styles of the model that carry that yearly designation in their title. The Air Jordan 1 ’89 is the one of those that’s in current rotation, a sneaker that relies on the Air Jordan IV for a gang of upgrades as well as the colors selected. This time around the shoe borrows from the OG combination of white/cement, right down the speckling across the midsole. Available now at CONCRETE.

One of Nike’s most innovative and popular runners, the Epic was first released in 1985, garnering a legion of fans with its clean, simple lines, comfort and modern styling.

Black History Month represents many things: civic leadership, social stewardship, community activation and much more.

Nike recognizes the importance of this meaningful month with not only a product collection, but a larger recognition of the power of sports to impact society. The 2013 Nike Black History Month Collection mantra “Be Bold. Be True.” celebrates three athletes who are fearless in action and fueled by a purpose.

Now more than ever, athletes at all levels have a unique ability to extend their voice beyond sports. Soccer superstar Didier Drogba, tennis legend Serena Williams and basketball phenom Kevin Durant provide creative inspiration for the product collection based on their commitment to giving back to their communities.

All three athletes are celebrated in this year’s collection; each has an individual logo. Drogba’s is a light bulb morphed with a soccer ball, representing his ongoing involvement in bringing solar light bulbs to impoverished areas in Africa. Williams’ icon consists of a tennis ball emanating with lightning bolts, showing how she empowers young women, especially through the secondary school she helped build in Kenya. Durant’s icon represents the hopes and dreams of young athletes, with a basketball hoop merging with a cloud formation, a nod to the support he has given to his hometown recreation center in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, a place he attributes for helping him realize his own dreams. The three icons are infused into a distinct Nike BHM print pattern that appears throughout the collection.

Nike Sportswear BHM shoes include the Nike Lunar Force 1, Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Hi, Nike Dunk Sky Hi and Nike Air Force 1 Downtown.

In keeping with a tradition of honoring organizations that give back and inspire youth, NIKE, Inc. will make a financial contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America with proceeds from the Nike BHM Collection.

Available now at CONCRETE.

Black Friday is usually the time when friends and families get together and crowd malls and stores to get the best bargains for their holiday shopping, with the idea being that they save money and get their presents all taken care of over a month in advance. But sneaker heads are not wired that way. In fact, Black Friday is usually the day they end up spending the most money because several highly anticipated drops are expected to take place on the shopping holiday.

2012 will see the return of the “Bred” colorway of the Air Jordan IV. Set to drop as a standalone release and not part of any kind of pack, the “Bred” is the famous shoe that several of Michael Jordan’s most famous moments took place with, often at the expense of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Available as of today at CONCRETE.
