The retro 5’s keep rolling out in super limited releases. KD VI Bamboo finally hits the US, but is overshadowed by the KD NSW “Birthday” QS. Raspberry is Nike’s flavor of the month.


The hype continues to focus around this Saturday’s Twitter link only release of the Isaac’s Jordan Doernbecher 5’s. Finish Line officially confirmed (via Twitter) that they will NOT be releasing the Jordan DB 5s online. At the same time they spilled the beans on the Jordan 3Lab5 release coming on 9/21. This was followed shortly by Nike’s confirmation of that release date.

The KD VI Bamboo will finally get a US release on 9/14. Likely to be a general release and not limited, do not expect to need tickets for this saturday.

Unlike the Bamboo, the KD VI NSW Lifestyle “Birthday” will be very limited and tickets will be given out at select Foot Locker House Of Hoops locations 9/11 and 9/12. Winners can pick up their Kicks

Also dropping is the Raspberry Air Max Hyperposite. Another long awaited release in a unique and limited colorway initially believed to be “Plum”. The Hyperposite has seen a resurgence in releases this last month.

Finish Line has an exclusive release of the Roshe Run HYP QS pack that is sure to go fast.

Also hitting shelves on the 14th is the Nike Air Pippen Retro 1 “black/flash lime-anthracite”. This is an unusually bright colorway for the Pippen which has been mostly understated since making it’s return earlier this year.

Finally the Jordan Brand is following up with last week’s release of the Retro 1 OG “Highlight Reel” with an Atlanta Hawks colorway for the Jordan Son Of Mars Low.
