Air Jordan 16 “CEO” Release Will Be Very Limited

Jordan Brand is honoring Michael Jordan‘s rise from the hardwood to the front office with the release of the Air Jordan 16 “CEO” edition. It pays tribute to his role as majority owner and CEO of the Charlotte Hornets, saluting his unparalleled business acumen through one of his most heralded styles.

This season, the first in which a team will wear a Jumpman logo on their jersey in the NBA, may also see some Hornets players in this exclusive Air Jordan 16. We say that as it’s not only a good fit functionally and aesthetically, but also because the release will be limited to 2,300 pairs and Hornets players may be among the few to score the “CEO’s.”

Take an official look at the Air Jordan 16 “CEO” below and anticipate the drop on October 20.

Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Wolf Grey” Drops This Holiday Season

Earlier this year when Jordan Brand first introduced the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit, most could assume that OG colorways would release first followed by a few new mockups. Now, trailing both “Bred” and “Royal” releases, this holiday season brings forth the first non-OG colorway of the Flyknit 1 in Wolf Grey.

Joined by Golden Harvest Swoosh branding and Wings logo, the Air Jordan 1 Flyknit “Wolf Grey” stands as a catalyst for more non-traditional colorways of this contemporary take on the Air Jordan 1. Hopefully, pairs like this one with be intermingled with releases of more OG colorways, which was revealed during our interview with one of the shoes designers.

Look for this Air Jordan 1 Flyknit at the top of next month on November 1.

A Closer Look At Sizing, Fit and Details of an Authentic Nike NBA Jersey

words & photos // Ray P.:

This season of basketball is a bit more special than years past as we usher in a new era of Nike NBA jerseys. Everyone and their Momma is excited for the Swoosh branded gear, but does it live up to the hype? Today, I got my hands on a Los Angeles Lakers authentic jersey and decided to give you a closer look as well as some thoughts regarding sizing, fit, technology, materials, and more.

Check out below for a hands-on review of what you can expect when purchasing your team’s uniform.

FIT & SIZING

The new Nike NBA jerseys are designed to improve the performance experience of an athlete which led to the uniforms being more form-fitting than ever. Personally, I went a size up for a comfortable, casual fit. I would recommend you do the same if you enjoy extra room similar to the old style of jerseys or intend to wear a t-shirt under your favorite team’s uniform. I feel the sizing affects the width of the jersey more than length which helped in that going up a size did not make my jersey too long. Focusing on the new construction of the collar, it fits nice and snug which eliminates the jersey from ever falling off your shoulder which is a huge plus.

MATERIALS & TECHNOLOGY

Each authentic Nike NBA jersey features AeroSwift technoloy, stretch knit fabric with engineered mesh,  and ventilation as determined by extensive sweat-mapping studies. They feel extremely lightweight both in hand and on the body. Nike integrated AeroBlades which helps the jersey disrupt and improve the air around the athlete, resulting in the greatest drag reduction.

Personally, I think the technological advances on the Nike NBA jerseys make it incredible. From a style standpoint, you can wear the jersey comfortably in warm climates as well as colder climates because essentially it’s a weightless extra layer over a hoodie.

Mentally, I associate lightweight jerseys with the take down version and for that reason it’s the only disadvantage to the technology I can point out. For years we’ve been trained to equate quality with thickness of material which would further validate a 0 purchase.

To take it another step above, each uniform represents approximately 20 discarded bottles as the material includes polyester that was converted from melted down recycled plastic water bottles. A great piece that is also a benefit to the planet – definite win.

THE DETAILS

Each team’s authentic NBA jersey will feature a unique detail and it’s my favorite part of the jersey. Specifically on the back collar of the Los Angeles Lakers uniform, a leather tab with an embossed championship trophy reads the number 16. If you’re not aware, that’s how many NBA Championships the Lakers franchise has won thus far. I love how that small detail dates the jersey and provides a contrast not typically seen on other uniforms.

The blend of the materials and AeroSwift technology make for a really awesome textures seen throughout the jersey when up close. A detail that may go unnoticed is the sleek and modern hem. It extends while remaining neat.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Are authentic Nike NBA jerseys worth 0? From a technology standpoint, yes. I would definitely buy the statement jerseys of my favorite player in authentic form, but would settle for Swingman in the home & away colors. Authentics are built for performance of some of the world’s greatest athletes and Nike nailed it.

When it comes to casual wear, my preference is for jerseys to be a bit thicker in fabric and materials on the numbers and logo if I’m spending 0. Although the Swingman version lacks any stitched features and AeroSwift technology, I will still gladly spend 0 since I don’t play basktball in any NBA jerseys to be able to benefit from the innovation on the authentic.


Grab an in-hand detailed look at the authentic Nike NBA Los Angeles Lakers jersey (available now) paired with the NBA x Nike Air Force 1 which releases on October 12th for 0 via Nike SNKRS.

Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ’82” Pays Tribute to MJ’s Alma Mater

Based on a famed sample that never released at retail, the Air Jordan 11 “Win Like ’82” is largely the most anticipated release on the Jordan Brand holiday 2017 roster. The shoe also pays tribute to a little known fact about Jordan and his subtle ode to his alma mater even once he entered the pros.

Although unknown to many, MJ often wore his UNC practice shorts under his Bulls uniform. It was a unique ritual that saw Jordan, even when laced in all black and red, sporting Carolina Blue in a very understated manner.

This commemorative Air Jordan 11 highlights Midnight Navy patent leather and University Blue Jumpman branding to drive home the Tarheels aesthetic. Take a closer look below and expect the release on November 24.
