Air Jordan 2 Decon ‘Thunder Blue’ and ‘Sail’ Releasing in July



Air Jordan 2 Thunder Blue Release Date

Jordan Brand is bringing out the Air Jordan 2 Decon ’Thunder Blue’ and the Air Jordan 2 Decon ‘Sail’ during July. The first example of a luxury sneaker, the Air Jordan 2 continues to evolve. While the original mixed premium design with cutting-edge material, the new “Decon” version has been stripped to its essence.

Keeping its 1986 roots but trading traditional leather for new shades of suede, here’s a first look at Sail/White and Thunder Blue/White. In addition leather is used on the back heel tab while White covers the midsole and runs across the outsole.

Air Jordan 2 Decon Thunder Blue Sail Release Date

The Air Jordan 2 Decon in Thunder Blue and Sail is scheduled to release at select Jordan Brand retailers and at Nike.com on July 15th, 2017. Retail price is set at 0. Below you can check out more images of the two which will give you a detailed look. Let us know your thoughts on the Air Jordan 2 returning in Deconstructed form in the comments section below.

KITH x adidas Soccer Collection Releasing on June 2nd



Kith adidas Soccer Collection Release Date

The KITH x adidas Soccer Collection is set to release on June 2nd, 2017 which includes apparel and six different sneakers: three for each team, covering all terrains necessary for the sport – grass, turf, and street. These six styles also span adidas Soccer’s two most innovative lines of performance footwear, specifically the Copa Mundial and ACE franchises.

The Kith Cobras receive the Copa styles, which include the Copa Mundial 17 Cleat, the Copa Mundial Turf Trainer, and the Copa Mundial 17 Ultra Boost. Both the Turf and UltraBOOST models are completely new designs being introduced for the first time through this collection, as the lauded Copa Mundial 17 upper is equipped with turf and street midsoles. The cleat features a black snakeskin-embossed kangaroo leather upper atop a metallic rose gold foot plate. The turf trainer has a yellow kangaroo leather upper with snakeskin-embossed leather Three Stripes branding. This lightweight upper is adhered to an all-new performance EVA-cushioned midsole unit with a gum turf outsole. The UltraBOOST silhouette’s snakeskin-embossed white leather upper is pearlized, thus creating a unique glossy aesthetic. This upper is attached to an all white Ultra Boost midsole and continental rubber outsole. 

As for the Kith Flamingos, they receive the more disruptive ACE footwear, which is adidas Soccer’s more contemporary approach towards performance footwear. These three styles include the ACE 17+ Cleat, the ACE Tango 17.1 Purecontrol Turf Trainer, and the ACE 16+ Purecontrol UltraBOOST. The cleat features a laceless Primeknit upper covered by Controlskin overlays for more grip, as well as a colorblocked toe design. The turf trainer supplements the ACE 17.1 Primeknit upper with a performance EVA-cushioned misdole and turf outsole. Lastly, the ACE 16+ Purecontrol laceless Primeknit upper with an all-white Ultra Boost midsole unit.

KITH adidas Soccer Collection Release Date

The KITH adidas Soccer Collection is set to release this Friday, June 2nd. They will be available at all KITH locations as well as online at Kith.com. To purchase in-store, pairs will be raffled off via KITH’s newsletter.

This Day in Sneaker History // LeBron James Dethrones the Detroit Pistons

Much is made of Michael Jordan having to go through an array of dynasties. In the East it was Larry’s Celtics and Zeke’s Pistons and once he got to the Finals it was Magic’s Lakers. For LeBron James, foes in his conference were fierce and ironically the same franchises. While he would eventually battle with the retooled Celtics in years to follow, it was on this day in sneaker history ten years ago when King James lived up to his title by dethroning the Bad Boys II Detroit Pistons in what perhaps still stands as his most impressive postseason performance.

On the road in front of a rowdy Palace of Auburn Hills crowd, LeBron proved more clutch than Mr. Big Shot, more dynamic than Tayshaun Prince and more ferocious around the rim than Jason Maxiell. Dropping dimes, hitting jumpers and putting down the most aggressive of dunks, James poured in 48 points for a Double OT Game 5 win that included the final 25 points.

While most remember where they were when they were watching this game (I was at home in Okemos with my mom), few may remember what he wore. Lacing up the Nike Zoom Soldier 1, his team shoe would become his postseason shoe in what seemed a little anticlimactic at the time but makes total sense now.

Would you like to see his now historic Soldier re-release? Let us know in the comment section and relieve the memories in the video and photos below.

BRONX NEWS: NYPD sergeant charged with murder of schizophrenic Bronx woman


A Bronx sergeant, already blamed by the mayor in the fatal shooting of a schizophrenic senior citizen, was arrested Wednesday for murdering the elderly woman, officials said.


Sgt. Hugh Barry was indicted by a Bronx grand jury in the Oct. 18, 2016, death of Deborah Danner, 66, during a tense confrontation in her Castle Hill apartment.


The eight-year NYPD veteran, charged with murder, manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide, was held on 0,000 bond or ,000 cash bail after entering a plea of not guilty to all counts.


The sergeant, in a black suit and blue tie, stood silently with his uncuffed hands clasped behind his back. He stared straight ahead inside the Bronx courtroom, offering no hint of his thoughts.

Cop who fatally shot Bronx woman broke NYPD mental illness rules


Barry pulled the trigger and mortally injured Danner after the mentally ill woman put down a pair of scissors — and picked up a baseball bat.


“I think this is great news for society,” said Wallace Cooke, 74, an NYPD retiree and Danner’s cousin. “Debbie had no reason to die, and the cop had no reason to shoot her.”


Cooke blamed Barry for mishandling the situation after a neighbor called police to report that Danner was screaming. When the cops arrived, Danner was inside a rear bedroom clutching the scissors.


Barry convinced Danner to put down the scissors. He opened fire after she grabbed the bat and rushed at him.

Police shooting of Bronx woman eerily similar to 1984 incident


“He intended to kill her, no doubt,” Cooke told the Daily News. “When you shoot somebody twice in her own bedroom? All he had to do was close the damn door and walk out.”


The NYPD announced Wednesday that Barry was placed on suspended duty pending the results of his criminal case in the Bronx. He was due back in court on July 7.


“The arrest of the NYPD sergeant charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Deborah Danner is a good step in a long walk toward justice,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, who invoked the 1984 police killing of Eleanor Bumpurs.


The Bronx woman was the same age as Danner when she was fatally shotgunned by a police officer who was acquitted of manslaughter.

Stun guns: A matter of safety for both cops and civilians


Both Mayor de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said almost immediately after the shooting that Barry had bungled the call.


Sergeants Benevolent Association President Edward Mullins, in a lengthy Facebook posting, defended Barry’s handling of the situation.


De Blasio and O’Neill “did not just throw Sgt. Barry under the bus,” said Mullins. “In the court of public opinion, they ran him over with a steam roller.”


The murder indictment was “an absolute travesty of justice,” said Mullins.

Grand jury to probe NYPD shooting of Deborah Danner


Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. praised the grand jury for its diligence.


“What happened to Deborah Danner was an outrage,” said Diaz. “Clearly, there were options available to Sgt. Barry which he failed to implement.”


O’Neill said after the shooting that Barry did not follow proper procedure involving emotionally disturbed people. Cops are instructed to defuse situations until specially trained Emergency Services Unit officers reach the scene.


O’Neill’s comments sparked a rift with the sergeants’ union.

Mentally ill man sorry he tried to push woman onto subway tracks


Barry also kept his department-issued stun gun holstered, a tactical decision that came under heavy criticism.


“The shooting of Deborah Danner is tragic and it is unacceptable,” Mayor de Blasio said in October.


“This should never have happened. It’s as simple as that. Deborah Danner should be alive right now. Period.”
