304775-016 Nike Air Jordan 7 Retro Dark Grey / Wolf Grey / Total Orange / Turquoise Blue launches Saturday 25th April 2015.
This latest release of the Nike Air Jordan 7 Retro takes inspiration for it's colourway from the and colourful architecture and lively culture of Barcelona. It was in Barcelona at the 1992 olympics that MJ lead the USA "Dream Team" to a gold medal victory, with a pair of Air Jordan 7's on his feet through the entire tournament.
The Air Jordan 7 is yet another design to have sprung from the head of the that layer of golden sneakers, Tinker Hatfield. He took several features of the Air Jordan 6, including the toe-box, and prodcued a more colourful, minimal and lightweight design than any previous Jordan.
The visible air unit was taken away, along with the obvious Nike Air logo that was relegated to the insole, which gave the stitched Jumpman logo pride and place on the side of the ankle. Other new editions included the triangular sections of the midsole that reach up onto the leather uppers to give extra stability on court. and a heel pull to help your foot into the inner sockliner.
The AJ7 marked a step away from Nike branding on Jordan shoes and ad's as the Jordan brand was becoming more firmly established as it's own entity. It also saw the end of Mars Blackmon (Spike Lee) marketing campaign and saw MJ teaming up with Bugs Bunny, to coincide with the smash hit movie 'Space Jam."
10 Deep is definately a brand that sticks to it's beliefs, and their two main beliefs seem to be "graphics need to be contrasting and sharp" and "top quality construction is everything." They can be relied upon for simple, well made pieces that are not scared of the power of big prints. The next 10 Deep delivery, the second of this season, is on it's way and as you can see from this look book 10 Deep have not changed from this productive path.
In their own words this drop is "a modernist take on 'everyman' style" with "a colour palette dominated by muted tones that are puncturated by contrasting bright gradients and patterns." I'd say that covers it. We are expecting this drop to be available from the 25th April 2015.
725157-100 - Nike Air Tech Challenge II PA White / Gym Blue / Bright Crimson is expected at 5 Pointz 21st April 2015.
The Nike Air Tech Challenge II is a new generation tennis shoe that was made famous in the 1989 by being Andre Agassi's shoe of choice throughout the peak period of his career, with the Hot Lava colourway becoming part of his signature 'bad boy of tennis' look. This OG colourway was recently brought back onto the market and the success of this as spurred Nike on to come up with some new editions. This new White and Gym Blue 'Pinstripe' colourway is inspired by the bold striped shirts that Agassi used to rock while smashing balls across the court and breaking down the uptight traditions that surrounded the sport. They have all leather uppers and the cotton padding on the collar and tongue are decorated with the stripes that hook up with plastic details and contrasting heel. An excellent Summer shoe, weather you're playing a few sets of just lounging in the park drinking Pimm's from a can.
It is available right now from our Puma page.
308662-025 Nike Air Rift Black / Menta / Anthracite / Black is launched 4th May 2015.
The shoe was inspired by the barefoot style of Kenyan marathon runners, and to honor this the first releases featured the colours of the nations flag and took it’s name from the country’s famous Rift Valley.
725233-006 - Nike Air Max 90 OG Black / Neutral Grey / Dark Grey / White "Reverse" is launched 14th May 2015.
As all Jordan fans are well aware Nike always keep their cards close to their chest when it comes to releasing information and imagery of upcoming colourways, but they seem to have temporarily changed tactic on this and have released these excellent shots of retro release for the Holiday season 2015, which is clearly a long way off. Whether this is a random exception to the rules or how they are going to approach promotion from now on. we're not complaining.
As you can see the releases we will be stocking consist of two excellent colourways of the Nike Air Jordan VIII and brilliant, light colourway of the Air Jordan 1.
Nike Air Jordan VIII "Three Time's A Charm"
This dope colourway of the AJ8 Retro has been created to commemorate the Chicago Bulls' first three-peat Championship season, with the dashes of colour representing th kits of the three defeated teams. These bright colours bounce of the black and deep purple, with an Infrared Jumpman on the new tongue design finishng off this winner.
Nike Air Jordan VIII "Black and Chrome"
This one is a rarity with it being one of the few non-OG colourways to be released on the AJ8 silhouette, and it is making a come back this Holiday season. Whne it was first released in 2003 the "Black and Chrome" smashed it, and became an instant favourite of Jordan freaks. The black uppers are accentuated with chrome details taken from the VIII "Playoffs" and "Aqua".
Nike Air Jordan 1 "Columbia"
Taking it's colours from MJ's college team kit, with dark powder blue accents atop a white premium smooth leather upper. A shining re-invention of the B-Ball boot that started it all.
So, I don't know about you, but that's my Christmas sorted! It's a shame none of my family will be recieving any gifts, but they can all bask in the festive glory of my new J's.
Bugs and MJ have been tight since they teamed up for the 1996 hit movie "Space Jam", and even to this day the bunny has Micheal on speed dial, as he mentions on the video below. As part of the 30th anniversary celebrations of this year the two have teamed up again on a special AJ1 and an AJ7. Unfortunately we are NOT receiving the Air Jordan 1 pictured below but will be getting the "Hare" 7 on 16 / 05 / 15.
WE ARE NOT RECEIVING THIS AIR JORDAN 1 (PICTURED ABOVE). IT IS AVAILABLE FROM NIKE. WE ARE RECEIVING THE NIKE AIR JORDAN 7 (PICTURED BELOW) on 16 / 05 /15 -
The Puma Court Star Embossed is launched at 00.01am 11/04/15.
Puma have signalled the start of the sunshine with this premium, embossed edition of the stylish tennis classic, the Court Star. It shows off all the attributes that have made Puma's shoes a mainstay of casual fashion for decades. This very special version has premium leather uppers with perforated stripes and a lightly embossed pattern running down the tongue and toe-box, to give some subtle contrast and break up the simple shape of the shoe.
The Nike Air Jordan 11 Retro 'Georgetown' Grey Mist / White / Midnight Navy is released 11/04/15 - 08.00am online, 10.00am in-store.
The next addition to this year's 30th anniversary celebrations of the Jordan Brand is this re-mastered version of the Nike Air Jordan 11 Low. The 'Georgetown' colourway takes inspiration from MJ's college team colours for Noth Carolina University, in which he scored the winning basket against Georgetown in the 1982 NCAA Championship. The navy blue patent leather overlays are the dominent feature of these elevens, with the grey mesh uppers and ice blue transparent midsole each contrasting against this, to brilliant effects that are finished with clean dashes of white on the misdole and laces. The usual Jordan 11 branding is present, plus a special '30' graphic printed onto the insole, which makes this edition a must have for the avid collector.
The Nike Air Huarache Light OG Pack is released on 23rd April 2015. - University Red / Neutral Grey / White 306127-601 - Dark Curry / White / Wheat 306127-717
The Nike Air Huarache Light was first released in 1993 and brought the evolution of the neoprene lined technology back to running after branching out into basketball and cross training. The overlays have been cut back on this silhouette, so only a suede mudguard and a one-piece mesh upper remains, with a translucent lace up system that reaches up from the seam. All this sits on a deep Phylon air unit midsole and the shoe is finished with small swosh, rubber tongue branding and a small heel pull.
Taking OG colourways from other classic silhouettes this new duo show off the steamlined, shape of the Huarache light beautifully, and the soft, flexible build of the uppers means that this shoe reaches new levels of comfort for the wearer. Win win.
Adidas Skateboarding and The Hundreds have teamed up to produce this excellent little capsule, consisting of three tees and a nice colourway of the classic Adi Ease. As you can see below the two brand's logos fit together very well to produce a whole new graphic, which is joined by an imaginary football team emblem throughout the set.
The inspiration for this little collection, comes from Bobby Hundred's childhood soccer team "The Strikers" who rarely won, but "had the most heart" and also sported a slick burgundy and grey kit. All four of these pieces are available now on our Adidas Originals page.
Coming soon: Nike Air Trainer Huarache White / Black 679083-105
The Nike Air Trainer Huarache joined the Huarache family in 1992, bringing the neoprene sock technology to a training shoe for the first time. With a height similar to the Nike Air Flight Huarache, with the big velcro strap to give you optional tightness of fit. The beefy Phylon midsole with air unit and synthetic leather overlays finish off this chunkier addition to the Huarache selection.
X-Large may be one of our newest brands at 5 Pointz, but it is no spring chicken in the industry, and is viewed as one of the pioneers of the industry, along with Stussy and FUCT. This has given them a lot of time to develop an international following, and as with other American brands they have become extremely popular in Japan, which is renowned for it's cutting edge taste in all areas of fashion. This popularity has meant that X-Large now has a seperate wing of the company based in the Land of the Rising Sun, that produces it's own line with it's own unique aesthetic.
These pics were taken by the American team when they were over there for their annual global meeting, and as they say "how can you go to Tokyo and not do some market research?". Along with soaking up the surroundings these pics alos include some shots of the X-Large Japan Offices and one of their flagship store that was being prepared for a special collaborative project with Puma.
The ASICS Gel Lyte III is one of the brand's most popular silhouettes and a big reason for this is the special releases of the shoe that are released every year. This Lazer Etch pack is the latest high tier, limited edition of this much love runner. By using the latest lazer cutting technology ASICS have been able to create the uppers from a single piece od suede, while giving the impression of seams with tonal indentations across the shoe, that surround triangular perforations that make a geometric pattern across the toe box and inbetween the contrasting stripes. The result is a truly premium look that highlights the texture of the suede and catches the eye with it's details.
We are expecting the Only NY Spring 15 delivery in mid April 2015.
The reasons why Only NY continues to be one of our most desired of the brands we stock are like their aesthetic - plain and simple. They are a prime example of why small, independent brand's are the life blood of the industry, reflecting the founder's lifestyle and tastes and growing a dedicated following by developing a truly unique take on what makes appealing clothing.
These pics were uploaded on the Only NY site last week and give a little peak into what the latest collection has to offer. The usual staples of clean graphics and ethically sourced, high quality materials are they, alongside some brand new illustrations that are unmistakably Only's style. and some new ventures into ineresting cut and sew pieces.
This Rainbow Pack SD Nike Air Huarache Run and Nike Roshe Run NM are expected to be with us 07/04/15.
A nice edition to Nike offerings for the Spring / Summer season is this two shoe SD "Rainbow Pack", consisting of a striking colourway of the popular Nike Air Huarache Run and a new woven edition of the Nike Roshe Run with a Natural Motion midsole. CLearly taking it's name from the spectrum of colours that decorate selected areas of both silhouettes and contrast against the mainly dark uppers on both.
This new version of the Roshe Run features woven detailing on the toe-box (a feature shared certain upcoming Air Max 1 releases) with entirely suede uppers and a subtle perforated Swoosh. The Natural Motion midsole is a relatively new innovation from Nike, which retains the original Roshe's midsole bounce while improving on movement and flexibility.
The spectrum of colours is more prevalent on the Huarache from this pack, with the neoprene sock and translucent outsole glowing. This brightness bouncing off the grey leather overlays and deep black mesh toe box works to make a very special edition of the Huarache.
The Nike Air Jordan 5 Retro "Metallic Silver" White / Black / Metallic Silver 136027-130 releases 04/04/15. 8am online and 10am in-store.
Originally released in 2000 the Metallic Silver version of the Nike Air Jordan 5 Retro returns as part of the Re-mastered line of AJ's that have been so prevalent this year. They feature clean white tumbled leather uppers, with plastic mesh inserts in the side panels, 3M reflective material on the tongue and Jordan embroiderty on the side and heel. The Small amount of reflective silver on the midsole site very well on the transparent ice blue that reaches around the outsole. The re-mastering that Nike have introduced to their Jordan releases mean that every effort has ben taken to ensure that every pair is constructed to the highest standard, and as close to the original release as possible.
The Gel Kayano from ASICS is known for it's loud, in-your-face colour-ways, but this time the brand has given this popular runner a monochrome makeover which gives the shoe an entirely fresh look and emphasises the large amount of detail contained within the silhouette. This 2-pack release gives you the Kayano is almost entirely pure no-colour editions with small contrasting accents on both. The uppers are made from mesh, suede and synthetics and the Gel technology in the midsole guarantee a bouncy, comfortable ride, which is combined with the sock-liner to give high performance. The ASICS Gel Kayano Black & White Pack is available now on our ASICS page.
Following the first two colourways from the Puma Cream Blaze Of Glory Primary OG pack that dropped earlier this year we have these two shining versions. Cream releases from Puma are top tier, limited releases that highlight the best aspects of the brand's archive. They are built to replicate the original release of this comfortable runner that has been constructed with fine mesh uppers with a combination of suede, reflective fabric, plastic and perforated leather. The deep midsole contains Puma Trinomic technology which combines with the padded one-piece sockliner to give a stable fit and comfortable ride. These two are available right now on our Puma page.
