Top 5 Air Jordan Blue Jordan Ultimate Gift Of Flight Pack

In recent weeks, Air Jordan has decided to drop a number of pairs with a blue colorway. Whether it is because of the winter weather affecting the northern hemisphere, sheer coincidence or some grand-scheme marketing plan up Jordan Brand’s sleeve, we don’t know. However, we are in love with drops so far, as they all gained interest within the sneaker-head community. Let’s take a look the TOP5 Blue Air Jordan released and to-be-released:

5. Air Jordan VI Sport Blue

2014 was the year of the Air Jordan VI, and the Sport Blue silhouette started the pattern of blue drops from JB. It sported blue accents along the lower and upon the branding, these kicks are majority white patent leather.

4. Air Jordan XI & XX9 Ultimate Gift Pack

It’s difficult to find a locate a sneaker-head not in love with any pair of the Air Jordan XI, so it was smart for JB to released the coveted Patone colorway with the latest Air Jordan, the XX9 Legend Blue.

3. Air Jordan VII French Blue

2015 will be the year of the Air Jordan VII, and the French Blue silhouette will most likely end the pattern of blue drops from JB. It sports blue accents along the lower and upon the branding, these kicks are majority white patent leather.

2. Air Jordan IV Columbia

Knicks’ R.J. Barrett joins growing PUMA basketball family

Canada’s R.J. Barrett has officially signed a multi-year shoe deal with PUMA — joining a growing list of young stars as the brand continues to push further into basketball.

Barrett, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft joins DeMarcus Cousins, Danny Green, DeAndre Ayton, Kevin Knox, Marvin Bagley III and Michael Porter Jr. and others.

PUMA also inked former New York Knicks legend Walt Clyde Frazier to a lifetime contract in 2018. Frazier pioneered the brand to the upper echelon of sneaker culture with the release of the “Puma Clyde” back in 1973.

Terms of the deal weren’t officially disclosed – but given RJ’s representation which includes big-time agent Bill Duffy, it wouldn’t totally be a shock if PUMA significantly overpaid for Barrett’s services.

PUMA won the Canadian stars rights after beating out Nike, Adidas and unveiled a mural dedicated to Barrett near its new sprawling store on Fifth Avenue in downtown New York.

Barrett is expected to rack-up a bevy of endorsement deals and also has agreements with the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and apparel company INDOCHINO.

Canadian’s Barrett, alongside Andrew Wiggins (Adidas) and Jamal Murray (Adidas) are expected to be right at the top sponsorship earners over the course of their careers — taking advantage of their global star power and the rise of basketball in Canada.

New Nike Giannis Antetokounmpo Sneakers Are ‘Coming To America.’

New Nike Giannis Antetokounmpo Sneakers Are Coming To America Poster
"Sexual Chocolate"...

“GOOD MORNING NEIGHBORS!”

“Hey! F### you!”

(With genuine joy and affection back) “Yes! F### you too!”

Ever since Milwaukee Bucks position and court redefining Point God, Giannis Antetokounmpo came to America like Eddie Murphy, he truly beyond a cliché changed the game and the watching world. And now with Nike, lacing up some new signatures inspired by the classic 80’s Murphy movie ‘Coming To America’, the Greek Freak is about to change the sneaker one too.

These new most valuable sneakers from this year’s MVP are so clean they’ll have you running up like Samuel L. Jackson in “McDowell’s”.

Time to get the brooms.

It’s about to be a clean sweep Foot Locker.

Antetokounmpo’s first sneaker the Nike Freak 1 is about to take all those LeBron, Kobe’s and Westbrook’s to the shoeboxes with this breath of Air. Fresh out the cardboard these colorful pairs have a reversed swoosh like Travis Scott. Perfect for any shoe dog like Phil Knight. And these ‘Coming’ colorways also feature leopard, black, grey and gold accents to the men who would be King. Prince Akeem’s royal garb and the most inspired international influence this league has seen since the dream shake of Hakeem Olaujawon for a regal fit.

And with the gold ‘Coming To America’ logo on the tongue of these licks you can expect this revolution to be televised. But please bring back our favourite ‘Raw’ and ‘Delirious’ comedian for the commercial Nike.

This perfect pair for the theme of the perfect prototype player of this games future generation drip as hard as ‘ER’ and ‘Logan’ star Eriq La Salle’s jheri curl in this movie. Watch the shoes like Ronald Reagan said to Eazy-E when N.W.A. visited the White House according to The Game! If co-star Arsenio Hall still had a show (bring it on back again) then he’d have them as a guest on his couch. With or without the freak.

Put up a wall against these Trump! We have more shoeboxes to stack.

Wearing clothes are about to be a new experience for you as you unbox these with the rose petals that fall out like Tokyo trees after cherry blossom season instead of tissue paper. There’s also some ‘Coming To America’ inspired Freak 1 Nike apparel to match with some ‘I Love NY’ heart homages to the film about a prince who made his way to the Big Apple like this kid from the Olympic home of athletes in Athens, Greece did on Draft Day.

These really are the Crown Prince of Zamuda.

These Greek sneakers are so freaking good, you’re going to want to renounce your throne.

Come on, come all.

Dame Time Forever. What Are Those New Adidas ‘Black Panther’s’?

Published

Damian Lillard Adidas Dame 5 Black Panther
A Nation Under Our Sneakers...

Adidas are in the Endgame now.

Before we get started, Havlicek would have stole that ball. Just saying Paul George. Stop acting like Paul Pierce. It wasn’t a “bad shot”. And R.I.P. to a Boston Celtic and storied NBA great. Dear John will be stealing every ball in hoop heaven. Rest peacefully.

Like a cat toying with a mouse. That’s how we described Lillard’s Dame Time winning clutch three from Mt. Hood as Portland gave Oklahoma City roses in the first round this week. Damian had more clock than grandfather’s and still took his time. Because it is his after all.

And now as timely as ever in the same week as one of the greatest playoff game and series winning shots in basketball for all time and one of the biggest blockbusters in Hollywood history coming out with ‘Avengers: Endgame’, this cat is building a superhero legendary legacy.

You better check a comic-book or something.

T’Challa may have been Thanos snapped to cat litter in the Avengers ‘Infinity War’, but the King of Wakanda has a regal gift by royal appointment to Damian Lillard like he did Victor Oladipo in a victorious Slam Dunk Contest for testament tributes last season.

The cat has something out the bag.

The pick of the litter…

Now you may be screaming “what are those” like Shuri at these royal sandals, but try these sneakers on. They embody everything about the next-gen, nano-tech Black Panther suit she developed for this emperor’s clothes. All the way down to the texture and trim which straps “Wakanda Forever” over the laces. The titan mad purple that runs like veins through Chadwick Boseman’s superhero suit absorbs all the blows he takes and turns it into a recharged deflecting energy pulse. Kind of like all the rock the baby and wrist tapping crap Damian Lillard was taking off Russell Westbrook before he absorbed it all and gave it back in a half century energy that exploded with a game-winning fireball.

Never delete that footage.

Marvel have also gifted Dame with his own Black Panther mask like Oladipo, but this time canvas created from his super sneakers. Part of the ‘Heroes Among Us’ series from the three stripes, a comic-strip advertising campaign has been crafted. Featuring Lillard standing in front of the downtown RIP City, PDX skyline looking Wakandan in artwork akin to the ‘Nation Under Our Feet’ graphic novel redux series that rebooted this classic character before his feature film debut.

Damian may have played Killmonger villain to the Oklahoma Thunder, going G.O.A.T. like Michael Jordan B. But he’s a hero to us now blazing a trail like a human torch possessed with a fire and the heart of a lion inside all that panther power.

The Dame 5 will assemble with the arc of the bolted up ‘Iron Man’ Harden Vol. 3 for James and the patch of the ‘Nick Fury’ TMac 1 for Tracy McGrady. As well as the ‘Captain America’ Adidas N3XT L3V3L, and a ‘Captain Marvel’ Adidas Pro Vision for all those who could take the lead all day, with us ’till the end of the line. HIGHER. FURTHER. FASTER.

But we know which ones will be clawed off the stores shelf throne come it’s big blockbuster release with ‘Endgame’ right now.

It’s a drip fit for a King.
