For the second time since 1991, the ‘Carmine’ Air Jordan 6 is being retroed as a standalone shoe. The last time the Air Jordan 6 ‘Carmine,’ Kanye was still at Nike, and the Red Octobers just dropped.
Michael Jordan wore the shoe nicknamed after the deep red hues it bears during the first half of the 1991-1992 NBA season after winning the Championship sporting the Air Jordan 6 Infrared. Note that this year is the 30th anniversary of this colorway, and the last time the Jumpman released this colorway was its 23rd anniversary. The Carmine features the mythical red and white upper with black on the midsole, tongue, and pull tab.
Unlike the 2014 release, this release will feature the Nike Air on the heel for the time since the ’91 drop. The sneakers will release on February 13th, 2021, for CA$265.

Jordan Brand has been delivering more women’s exclusives than ever before, and this month, it is releasing the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Seafoam. The shoe teased in advance months ago is due to kick us off right on August 12th.
Inspired by the calming colors of sage, this rendition will showcase a Seafoam, Healing Orange, and White color scheme, which is a brand new take on the iconic silhouette. The pair features a smooth white leather base with a light shade of green used on the overlays and Swooshes. Hits of Orange appears on the two-toned laces that nod to the string used to tie bundles of sage. A white midsole and matching Seafoam rubber outsole finishes off this brand new take. The shoe also comes with a hangtag and two extra sets of laces.
Travis Scott and fragment’s long-awaited Air Jordan 1 arrived last week with little time to prepare. Fortunately, there is always another sneaker right around the corner. Travis and Hiroshi will be back on August 13th with the low variant of the Air Jordan 1 they just released.
Unlike its high-top variant, this Air Jordan 1 Low indulges in the model’s inaugural Black Toe color-blocking. AJ1 and fragment fans will surely notice the parallels to the iconic fragment design x Air Jordan 1 from 2014. High-quality, smooth white leather at the base allows the cream swooshes and rich blue hits that take over everything from the tongue label and bottom heel overlay to revel in the spotlight. The midsole also indulges in a seemingly aged aesthetic. Logos from Travis’ Cactus Jack and Hiroshi’s fragment design are embroidered and debossed at the heel to complete the look.
sacai, similar to its Japanese counterparts, UNDERCOVER and AMBUSH, has been on a release spree with Nike this year. After releasing two colorways of the Blazer Low silhouette last month, the imprint is back with two new colorways on the last day of July. The Iron Grey colorway surfaced late last year, while the British Tan colorway has been revealed by none other than King James.
Although the two pairs have already been released in South Africa, the sacai x Blazer Low has yet to hit global retailers. Both shoes will feature colored suede uppers, an all-white sole and wraps, tonal top layer Swoosh, and eyestays with colored options on the underlay. The British Tan opts for accents of University Red, while the Iron Grey keeps things monochromatic with white. Finally, both pairs arrive with dual lacing and dual tongues.
Officially releasing on July 31st on SNKRS CA and select retailers, the sacai x Blazer Low Iron Grey & sacai x Blazer Low British Tan will retail at CA$160.
If you caught an L on release day, purchase the sacai x Blazer Low Iron Grey & sacai x Blazer Low British Tan on NXTDROP if you are in Canada.

Sneakerheads and LEGO enthusiasts alike were enchanted by the adidas LEGO UltraBoost released in April due to its customizable LEGO plates to build endless looks. The footwear-meets-fun partnership continues with four additional UltraBoost models inspired by the colors of the standard toy bricks.
A Cloud White base is used for the blue, red brick-inspired, and multi-colored variations. Each pair has lace cages and heel counters in their respective brick color that flaunt a studded design reminiscent of the bumps on the beloved toys. The assigned color is also applied to the laces as an added touch of brightness. The multicolor colorway features a rich “Shock Blue” takes over reinforcement at the toe, while profile 3-Stripes opt into a mix of yellow and red, two signature colors in LEGO’s arsenal.

As the Tokyo Olympics kick-off, Jun Takahashi, founder of Undercover, linked up with Nike to commemorate the 2020 Summer Olympics with an apparel collection and a new pair of Dunk High, which is most likely part of a series of footwear called “Undercover Basketball Association.”

The shoe features a thinner and more tapered collar and toe shape with a Black, Gym Red, and White color scheme. The upper boasts red tumbled leather, while overlays arrive in a smooth and glossy black.
