We finally got more than a glimpse of the “future”. Today retailers have started announcing Jordan Future Release details both in stores and online.
For months we have known it was coming. Photos and details including a 3/15 release date were plentiful but no word from nike. Last week nike confirmed the 3/15 release date but would not say who will have the Jordan Future available for purchase.
FinishLine.com released a blog statement about the Jordan Future, making ties to the NSW and Two3 lines. Meanwhile FootLocker.com took a more direct approach and posted release details including ticket procedure and price. FootAction.com also put their hat in the ring adding the Jordan Future in both colorways to their release locator.
Meanwhile, definitively out of the lineup is Nike.com, Eastbay.com and ChampsSports.com who announced they will not carry the Jordan Future on March 15th.
The Jordan Future will release at 8 AM on 3/15 for $185. The launch will include the Infrared and Glow colorways.
Nike generally reserves the elite treatment of their top signature lines for the NBA playoffs. This year, as in 2013 it will consist of the LeBron, Kobe and KD series. We’ve seen the LeBron 11 Elite previously, and the Kobe 9 launched in elite form but this is our first real look at the KD VI Elite.
The Elite Team Collection features 3 colorways representing their players home team colors. Generally nike adds premium materials such as kevlar or carbon fiber to the shoe making them more durable and supportive. Generally this also raises the price of the kicks above their regular season silhouettes.
The 2014 Nike Basketball Series Team Elite Collection will drop 4/11at Nike Authorized retailers.
The 2013 collection is still available at steep discounts for some sizes and colorways to make room for the 2014 editions coming out.

Nike brings back the EXT with the LeBron 11 EXT Blue Suede
On the verge of the much hyped KD VI EXT Floral, photos of a LeBron 11 EXT Blue Suede have surfaced. Nike is clearly renewing it’s commitment to the EXT series. The LeBron X EXT were hugely successful with the Cork, Suede and Denim models. The Kobe 8 was equally as successful with it’s Kobe 8 EXT YOTS release. It is no wonder they are bringing it back in 2014 and adding the KD to the lineup.
So far the LeBron 11 EXT lineup includes a Denim, Suede, Palm Tree (Kings Crown) and a Kings Pride-esq metallic colorway. No release dates have been announced yet, but if it follows last years tradition, expect release delays and last minute Quick-Strike releases.
Recently nike has taken to releasing new kicks with little to no fanfare. These “secret” releases have flown under the radar for the most part.
Here’s some kicks you probably didn’t know released this last month.
LeBron 11 NSW Leopard (Link 1) (Link 2) and Black Leopard: Typical NSW silhouette but all black with a leopard pattern and fabric upper.
Jordan Retro 1 Nouveau Sequoia: The Jordan Retro 1 Nouveau gained momentum with the BHM releases, but other colorways trickle out without notice.
Nike Zoom Sonic Flight Black/White and Legion Pine: A throwback to Gary Peyton’s “The Glove” releasing in colorways that celebrate his NBA career.
Air Force 1 YOTH, Air Force 1 CMFT Premium YOTH (Link 1) (Link 2) and Lunar Force 1 QS YOTH: Yeah, Year Of The Horse releases have been less advertised than last year’s Year Of The Snake drops. These kicks are glitz and glammed in 3M, Gold and Glow in the dark accents.
The Jordan 6-17-23 is coming back in 2014.
The 6-17-23 Carmine Colorway
The 6-17-23 silhouette was originally released in 2011. It combines the Retro 6 and the Retro 17 in a unique way, much like the 6 Rings. We’ve seen a Carmine, Wizards, Cement and Grape colorway in 2011. This time it’s getting rereleased with the all new 2014 Infrared 23 colorway.
The release date is set for 4/5 with an expected $160 price point.

Just announced: the Air Jordan Retro 5 Fire Red “Black Tongue” will restock at 8 AM at jimmyjazz.com
Restocks were few and far between these last 6 months. Luckily, march has proven hopeful for Jordan fans who have missed out. Make sure you click the Jordan Latest Items link at 7:58 and start refreshing. JimmyJazz is usually prompt with their releases and stock is generally very limited.
Retro 5 Black Tongue link should be: http://www.jimmyjazz.com/mens/footwear/jordan-retro-5-sneaker/136027120 but they may change the link from last time and it’s likely safer to stick with the regular restock link they provided.
