At the 10th year anniversary of the ‘De La Soul’ Nike SB release. This Saturday, May 16, along with the Jordan 7 ‘Hare’, Nike releases a low cut version of the colorway of the Nike SB Dunk featuring a baroque brown and green leather with vinyl holographic uppers in respect to the eclectic hip hop group back in 2005. A little history behind the this group:
In 1989, Long Island trio De La Soul boldly announced their arrival on a burgeoning hip-hop scene with oodles of clever wordplay, a perfect grip of eclectic samples and a unique point of view the likes of which the genre had never seen before. The result was 3 Feet High and Rising, the group’s classic debut album that largely bucked hip hop trends of the day in favor of a sound one could only characterize as more peace medallion than dookie gold chain. Posdnuos, Trugoy the Dove and PA Mase (aka Plugs 1, 2 and 3) eschewed the typical braggadocio-style of rhyming from that era with a more laid-back leftfield approach, simultaneously expanding any perceived limitations in hip-hop as well as the audience make-up of those who listen to it. Transmitting live from Mars, The DA.I.S.Y. Age (short for Da Inner Sound Ya’ll) had officially begun. (source Nike)

This OG colorway is returning this Saturday, May 16. Colorway is almost similar to the OG in 1991. Initial samples came out with faux croc texture in the upper, they tradhed that and decided for the remastered look with the nubuck and smooth leathera. but unlike the OG release which was in a pack with the XVI’s, this time the retro pair is by itself. It comes with a retro card that has the Bugs Bunny silhoutte in the jumpman pose seemingly leaping over a “Hare Jordan” title. Certainly long awaited and favorite of the 7 colorway. This could be a contender in favorite Jordan retros this year. These will drop with all complete family sizing.

Next up on the awesome Jordan Retro High 1’s is the ‘Pinnacle’ adding to its casuals or off-court collections. Although ridiculously priced at $399, this colorway will be limited and will surely sell out. The upper synthetic leather material will have a snakeskin texture and available in two colors when they drop; white and black. Both will have the plain white soles to highlight the upper colors. Blings of real 24-K gold Air Jordan wings and Nike Air logo tongues, lace ends and eyes and heel gold medallion engraved with “1985” and “MJ23” tags adds to overall luxurious good looks for this exclusive pair. Will release in June at Flight 23 stores.
These pirs will be dropped in June from retailers in the US while in UK it’s on this Saturday, May 9 from the following stores:
