The almighty, success driven Jordan brand has done it again, they are bring us what they call “Future” or rightly named, Air Jordan Future. Now I’ll be honest, the first images of this sneaker, had me like no way, I don’t like that. But now that the brand has released official images prior to it’s March 15th release, I have to say, my opinion has changed dramatically. This is a luxury looking sneaker, and a fine looking one at that. The Jumpman brand have done away with a leather upper for this sneaker, and have given it the woven material treatment. They say that this creation is “symbiotic relationship between the court and the street”. The Future silhouette is designed with an Air Jordan XI sole with a chukka style upper, complete with an asymmetrical lace-up system.
Jordan Brand’s description of the sneaker says:
With a carbon fiber plate and full-length air outsole, the Jordan Future offers lightweight comfort and cushioning. Enhancing the minimalist nature of the shoe, the deconstructed upper foregoes a heel counter and toe enforcer. The asymmetrical lacing reduces pressure across the top of the foot, while the suede interior and ankle collar enhance comfort.
The release date for the Jordan Future is Saturday 15th March, and the colour ways they have shown us are that of the Black / Glow OR Black/ Infrared version. In my opinion, I will purchase one for sure, something different and as the name says, it’s looking ahead to the Future, not trying to recreate the OG colourways and designs that so many sneaker heads would like to see protected, and remain as classics with no re-productions.

It’s not my thing to really write about negative stories, but this is one that has hit me. On Saturday 21st December 2013, Nike released it’s brand new colour way of the beloved Tinker designed Air Jordan 11. The colour way is called Gamma Blue due to it being the only other colour on the sneaker apart from the all black upper, lower and maize Jumpman writing on the tongue. Now the sneaker, here in the UK, was a massive general release, to the point JD Sports, Footlocker, and Nike released the sneaker at Midnight online. I’m guessing this was done to reduce congestion at stores with release day hype queues and the ability to streamline resellers buying multiple pairs. Whatever the reason, it was a good one.
I on the other hand went to my favourite sneaker spot to pick up the sneakers, Nike Town London. The organisation, and hospitality is beyond the best, and after a short wait of about 45 minutes from arrival, I paid for and had my own pair of the new Jordan 11 Gamma Blues. A very calm shopping experience as it should always be. Now, in the States, this is not the case. I’ve seen multiple videos of fights breaking out in-stores, also on the street to the point where police have been forced to use mace to break up the carnage. Also footlocker stores being broken into and shutters being destroyed just to get the sneakers. What I don’t understand is why? Is your life really that minimal that you start swinging punches at a person to own a pair of them? I have to say I am ashamed to apart of the Snead culture if this is what is to become on release days, but on the other hand, as an American in the UK, i can say their standard of doing things is second to none. Take note US retailers, organisation is key.

It’s that time of year once again, Mr T-Raw aka Tyga has dropped Well Done 4 for the mixtape masses. Tyga delivers a very hard mixtape, once again, no failure tracks on this, and a few new club bangers which I will be dropping in my sets and mixes this month. Well Done 4 starts with “Word on the Street”, very hard flowing track which you will easily rewind just to take it in fully before starting the full musical journey into the mixtape. You can download the mixtape for FREE via Datpiff, be sure to register to keep updated with all the new releases.
Over the recent years, we have been treated to many re-release, re-constructed and invented colour ways of our beloved sneakers from the late 80’s and 90’s. In 2013 The Air Jordan 3 & 5 saw a fair few releases and new colour ways, which were a hit with new lovers to the brand, but many on the fence OG fans would not cop to them and passed those releases by, which would answer the question of why so many of them stayed on the shelf, in full sizes for so long after release day. Well 2014 will be bringing more retro sneakers, in OG colour ways, and many dressed in new colours. Not only is the Jordan brand brining back the Jordan 6 with a bang, but the beloved Huarache based Air Tech Challenge will see a re-release in January.
For those that are not familiar with this sneaker, could be due to the fact that it was mainly rocked by Tennis players, who followed the man who inspired it, Mr Andre Aggasi. Originally released in 1992, the sneaker adopts a mid silhouette offering greater ankle support whilst maintaining the Huarache neoprene sock liner before being finished with colours and patterns that are undoubtedly 90s. This is certainly a release I will be adding to my collection upon release…will you?

Is there nothing that Jay Z can’t do in this modern age, that doesn’t influence our culture away from music? Answer to that is, well no. Mr Shawn Carter has influenced so much in our modern age from Music, Art, Movies, Sport, Design and don’t forget his imprint in Fashion via his Rocawear brand. It would only seem right that Jigga has teamed up with one of the most spoken about watch manufactures in music and sport HUBLOT, whom have never been shy about collaborations with artists, sports teams and even players like Lebron James, to create some very original time pieces.
Now in the Classic Fusion collection, you will be able to find the “Shawn Carter” watch. Designed by its namesake himself, the Shawn Carter by HUBLOT Classic Fusion features the SC logo cut into the dial, front and center, not only revealing some of the precise inner workings of the movement, but adding a bit of edge to the smooth face. Measuring 45mm in diameter, the piece encapsulates HUBLOT’s 2.90mm HUB 1300 hand-wound movement, arriving in two different make-ups: a black ceramic and a yellow gold, both with a black leather strap and a strict limit of 250 pieces and 100 each, respectively. The watch is set to launch exclusively at Barney’s. This release will be limited to 350 pieces, so if you want one, I’d make those calls to reserve from now.
Release date : November 30th
So it’s looking like the holiday season will be packed with heat coming from the Jumpman brand. There are images of a Air Jordan 11 nickname “Gamma Blue” doing the rounds. Along with the Air Jordan 11 Taxi being released this winter, it would seem that the Jumpman brand will be dropping this new colour way for the masses. No release information has been posted out officially by Nike, but the early birds are taking orders, and the chinese whispers are heating up about this release. I’ll keep you updated via my Instagram – Bannerworx
Just because summer is officially over for many of us, that doesn’t mean that Nike Sportwear stop bringing the freshness for the winter months ahead. Check out this new colourway, and material set up they have put on the classic Nike Air Max 90 Premium.
The primary colour and material is grey suede, which follows through out most of the sneaker including the mid-sole, Nike Swoosh and lacing tabs. The ankle collar and outer sole is where the Volt kicks in, to bring this sneaker to life, and lights up any dark evening walk home from work or to the gym.
This colour way is set for release next month, keep an eye out for it, as I can see this being snapped up quickly.

Drake finally dropped the video for the single “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, from his future classic album NWTS. The video is based in 1985, and plays like movie, with Drake taking the lead, and his team have to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend from his competition. It’s good to see another video from the current hip hop community that isn’t a cliche video, but the theatrics of this video are not to be taken too serious, it’s a music video people not real life.

After months of previews and speculation a release date for the Air Jordan 4 Retro entry to the Fear Pack is known. The often times Oreo dubbed colourway is expected to release on the 24th of August.
So my resolution for 2013 to not purchase as many sneakers as I did in 2012 is looking like a immediate failure within the month of January alone. YES I have red sneakers already but you can’t deny it, your loving the Blood Sports Red, Nike Air Max 1’s which are due for a January release in all NSW (Nike SportsWear) stockists globally. These will officially be my first pair of Air Max 1’s, and from the constant reviews and praise these get, I am looking forward to owning them, especially for those long DJ sets I’ll be doing.
So it’s 7 days until the supposed end of the world, and seems many are on some end of the world hype. The only hype I’m following is the release of the Jordan 11 BRED’s which are scheduled for release on December 21st. These sneakers are iconic, not just because they are another Jordan brand release, but the history behind them, and the championship that Michael Jordan lead his team to makes these a special release indeed. So the question is, where will you be on Friday 21st December 2012?
Here is a look at four coming colourways of the Nike Air Max 90 Essential. Two of the kicks are set in full leather builds while two other come in a leather and mesh blend. Check for the four sneakers in January2013.
