First released in 1991, the Jordan VI made the headlines when Michael Jordan himself won his first championship over the LA Lakers whilst wearing this exact pair.


This remastered retro version sports a premium black nubuck upper with a 3M reflective underlay beneath the perforated sides. It is finished off with infrared and grey accents and a classic Jordan ice blue sole.

The Jordan VI ‘Infrared’ is launching in-store and online here, on Friday 28th November.




Nike Crescent City Collection

Another innovative pack from sporting heavyweights Nike, showcasing a collection that takes inspiration from Louisiana, also known as Crescent City. Year after year, the US basketball league’s best come together to compete for bragging rights in a showcase of premier talent and this year’s festivities are held in the heart of New Orleans.


As the NOLA Gumbo League Collection pays homage to what happens on the hardwood, the Nike Sportswear Crescent City Collection showcases the characteristics that make New Orleans different from anywhere else: the food, culture and distinctive wildlife. These three qualities take centre stage on Nike’s Flystepper 2K3, Air Up ’14, and Air Force 1 Low Comfort, designs as unique as the city that inspired them.


In New Orleans, alligators are king of the land and remembrance of another king’s first pair of Nike’s, the Flystepper 2K3 combines an elevated silhouette and adds the signature perforated quarter panels of the Zoom 2K3. Featuring black faux-alligator strap enclosures, the real tribute to the tough skin of Alligator Mississippi  takes form in a raised synthetic mesh covering the toe.


 As the best of the best come together in the Big Easy, the Nike Air Force 1 Low Comfort pays tribute in kind. Like Louisiana’s favourite dish, gumbo, the latest Air Force 1 is a collage of the most memorable Nike Sportswear upper materials,such as foamposite and cork and prints including elephant, alligator, pony hair, and safari.



Crawfish are a NOLA staple and any New Orleanian will tell you they are best when boiled. A crave-worthy take on the Nike Air Up mimics fresh-out-of-the-pot crawfish. The Air Up 2014 gets the job done with no seasoning required, featuring a crustacean-red upper complete with water droplets and a steamy graphic.
