Jordan Brand Update

Can you believe Jordan Brand will soon be releasing its thirty-second signature sneaker? This, in addition to the Team Jordan line, special releases, and player exclusives, has shaped Jordan Brand to be one of the most well respected and most popular shoe brands in the world.

Here’s a look at the Air Jordan XXXII which is made with a combination of a Flyknit upper and a Nike Zoom insole:

Air Jordan XXXII “Rosso Corsa”
AA1253-601
September 23, 2017
$185

Air Jordan XXII
AA1253-001
October 18, 2017
$185

Air Jordan XXXII Low
AA1256-001
October 18, 2017
$160

Looks like this model has taken some cues from the Air Jordan II:

Aside from that, this sneaker uses the best in Nike technology. Also, the AJ XXXII campaign is being led by no other than JB’s own Russell Westbrook, who recently signed a ten year extension with the brand. Will this help get JB it’s spot back on the top USA footwear brands or will they need to bring more OG sneakers back? Let us know how you feel via Twitter!

adidas Snatches Silver in August

In what many are calling a major turn of events, adidas has passed Jordan Brand earning the second slot in the USA’s footwear brand ranking. Although they fell short to Nike for the #1 spot, adidas’ basketball sneaker sales were up 40% last month compared to the drop in sales by both Nike and JB.

The Superstar and Tubular models (above) recorded high sales last month but what really helped was the basketball models adidas has been improving upon. James Harden, Damian Lillard (who says his next signature will have a BOOST-less option to promote affordability), Derrick Rose, and Andrew Wiggins, all promising players, have worn adidas on court and are the faces for adidas Basketball.

While the adidas roster may not seem as strong as LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Paul George of Nike, it is coupled with a technology that is surpassing NIKE AIR as the go to for style and comfort.

And how can we forget Mr. West?
