Without a doubt, the Air Jordan 11 is one of the most iconic basketball sneakers ever created. The shoe’s combination of patent leather, mesh and a translucent outsole make for a trademark look that is hard to deny. In fact, MJ’s 11th signature is so reviered, even low-top editions of the AJ 11 inspire great fanfare. Over the last two decades, we have seen over 20 Air Jordan 11 Lows released in two variations, including the IE version, which dropped the patent leather and mesh combo for elephant print and a leather upper. This past weekend, we saw two new additions to the Air Jordan 11 Low list, and with a few more set to release in the near future, we decided to spotlight the ankle-bearing signature style. Take a look through our Air Jordan 11 Low catalog, and then let us know your favorites in the comment section.

Reebok Blacktop Collection

Reebok-Blacktop-Collection-1

The outdoor courts have thawed out, meaning it’s finally the time of the year when everyone can hoop outside, and RBK is celebrating with the retro return of the classic Reebok Blacktop Collection. Directly associated with the ’90s street ball golden age, the Blacktop Collection were originally designed specifically for the concrete courts. With the bold toughness to match, the shoes transitioned into style icons as well. Now two of the most notable models from the line return in original form with the Blacktop Boulevard and Blacktop Battleground. The Boulevard is the slimmer silhouette with Blacktop stamped on the tongue, while the Battleground features RBK’s famous Pump lockdown. Both of the revisited renditions return in a black and white-based colorway, jolted with the loud colors from the era. Get any of the quartet when they release in limited quantities May 9th at key retailers Jimmy Jazz, Expressions, Shiekh, City Gear, Villa, DTLR, Reebok.com.
