When Dwyane Wade came ï»¿air jordan look home he has won an All-Star Game MVP, almost won the regular season MVP, made a few All-NBA and All-Defensive teams and reached the NBA Finals twice and won one. One of the biggest sneaker coups of the past few years was made even more special when Michael Jordan essentially handed the keys to the kingdom over to Wade, making him the man to continue the Air Jordan legacy while also getting chance to shine on his own with his signature Fly Wade line.
Sadly, the partnership lasted only a few years and Wade on to Li-Ning, but his short stay there was impactful to say the least.ÿþIn a little over a week, the Air Jordan XXX ( ) will be revealed ( in earnest ). This thing that we have loved and air jordan s cherished since 1985 is getting a 30th iteration. If the Air Jordan was a person, it would be old enough to do just about anything drive a car, hit the club, buy a house, get married, have kids except run for President. air jordan 1
He's still a public figure, but it's far removed from the days when millions would tune in to watch him play. As the young kids would say, MJ is washed. Or at least he would be if he were any other athlete or celebrity. A new retro dropping every other weekend and an epic meme will do wonders for a person's brand.Every time a new Air Jordan is about to be announced or rumors start circulating about its existence, we become kids again. What will it look like? What groundbreaking technology will air jordan nike set the table again?
But people didn't like the Air Jordan 20 when it dropped a decade ago, but it sold very well when it got a retro release last year. People were not feeling the Air Jordan 10 because MJ was off playing baseball and yet we got people clamoring for the Double Nickel and the Bulls Over Broadway last year. Michael, Tinker and Jordan Brand are always looking to the future and staying ahead of the curve and by doing so, we don't feel like the Air Jordan has hit a mid-life crisis .
ÿþThat being said, when Jordan Brand contacted me to be one of the select few to attend the Jordan Brand footwear unveil and launch event of the Air Jordan 32 in Turin, Italy, you could say that it was a dream come true scenario.8:40 pm Not knowing what to expect from the launch/unveiling event, we all anxiously meet up at the hotel lobby. We follow the Nike reps outside and are greeted by at least 5 Black Maseratis. The nike air jordan s drivers tell us to get in, and the show begins.
Inside the room we are greeted by Tate Kuerbis (designer of the shoe) and David Creech (Jordan Brand VP of design). Tate gave us insight on how the shoe was made and where the inspiration came from. Tate loves the mix of materials used on the shoe (Flyknit/suede/leather) to create the ultimate game shoe by combining art and science on to the shoe. The shoes were on display, all three pairs. The Air Jordan 32 Rossa Corsa, the Air Jordan 32 Bred, and the Air Jordan 32 Low in Black and Red.
Each month, let's take the time to celebrate a Care Bear or Care Bear Cousin!
