By now, sneakerheads that frequent this blog might already be aware of the fact that the Air Jordan 9 is being transformed into a winter-themed boot. Two colorways of the Air Jordan 9 NRG Boot have already been unveiled, one dubbed “Black Gum” and the other nicknamed “Olive,” both of which may end up joining December’s Air Jordan releases 2017. However, it turns out a far more vibrant, sample colorway of the Air Jordan 9 NRG Boot has surfaced, which may or may not end up hitting the shelves. More importantly, it seems that even the Air Jordan 3 is receiving the NRG Boot treatment.
Jordan Brand has somewhat confirmed that next month’s Air Jordan releases 2017 will indeed included one of the two Air Jordan 9 NRG Boot colorways that have already been unveiled. Unlike the “Black Gum” or “Olive” colorways though, the unreleased sample iteration can be best described as multicolored, consisting of hues like Blue, Grey, Orange and Purple. In terms construction, sneakerheads likely already know that the Air Jordan 9 NRG Boot still resembles the retro silhouette, but is equipped with metal D-ring lace eyelets and rugged, boot-like outsoles. The other two colorways definitely mimic the boot aesthetic much better; perhaps that is why this multicolored iteration remained a sample.
Apparently, the Air Jordan 3 is not merely being transformed into an NRG Boot; rather this Air Jordan 3 NRG variation will be a homage to man who designed the model, none other than Tinker Hatfield. Information leaked by pyrates () on Twitter provides some idea of what this “sneakerboot” will look like, even though no photos have been leaked yet. It seems that the color scheme will consist of Black, Cement Grey, Fire Red and White, which suggests that it might be inspired by the Air Jordan 3 “Fire Red.” This new variation and its limited iteration will be dubbed the Air Jordan 3 Retro NRG “Tinker.”
In case sneakerheads are wondering, it is the Air Jordan 9 NRG Boot “Olive” that will be arriving next month, apparently on December 6th, 2017, but there has been no news about the “Black Gum.” As for the Air Jordan 3 Retro NRG “Tinker,” the only things known so far is that it will be a limited release that will joining March’s Air Jordan releases 2018 next year and each pair will retail for $200.
The adidas Gazelle is one of the brand’s most prominent, classic low-top models. Perhaps that is why adidas launched a major PR campaign last year to promote the Gazelle, along with dropping quite a lot of retro colorways of the silhouette. The origins of the adidas Gazelle can be traced back to the brand’s training designs from the 1960s. The use of dyed suede instead of colored leather made the Gazelle appear considerably more vibrant than training shoes that came before it. Now in 2017, the adidas Gazelle seems to have received quite the luxurious treatment as it has arrived as a part of a “Crafted” Package.

As sneakerheads may recall, not too long ago adidas Originals unveiled a “Burgundy Red” colorway of the EQT Support 93/17, which was revealed to be a JD Sports exclusive. This “Burgundy Red” iteration looked quite luxurious, with its Primeknit uppers dressed predominantly in a deep shade of Burgundy. Its Primeknit uppers also featured Grey-colored detailing, looking like an 8-bit pattern, while its heels were made up of matching Burgundy-colored suede. It was also equipped with TPU support cages, Ortholite sockliners, suede medial panels and BOOST midsoles. This time around, it seems adidas Originals is preparing to drop two EQT Support 93/17 colorways as a part of a “Welding” Pack.

he adidas Iniki Runner is without a doubt one of the brand’s most popular running shoes. Earlier this month, adidas Originals revealed that Iniki Runner was receiving a complete makeover for the Fall/Winter season, being transformed into a completely brand new model dubbed the I-5923. Apart from the Iniki Runner, the I-5923 also draws inspiration from running shoe models that have been in the adidas archive. Perhaps sneakerheads thought that the I-5923 would be the only brand new running model that adidas would unveil by the time 2017 ended.

There was merely a single collaboration between adidas and BAPE this year in 2017. Technically, rumors about the two BAPE x adidas NMD R1 iterations had been circulating since back in June 2016 and they actually made their retail debut on November 26th last year, the day after Black Friday, but not in Europe. For some reason, the arrival of the BAPE x adidas NMD R1 collaborative release in Europe got delayed and postponed until this year, and the two sneakers finally hit the shelves in January 2017. It seems that the latest collaboration between adidas and BAPE will revolve around the Dame 4. Continue reading This BAPE x adidas Superstar BOOST “Camo” Pack Will Debut Somewhere In 2018
It seems unlikely that Nike will be dethroned in the world of sneakers. Nike’s footwear division generated worldwide revenue of approximately $20 billion back in 2016. adidas was and still is the second largest athletic footwear company in the world, but back in 2016, it had generated slightly more than half of Nike’s revenue that year. In 2017 though, adidas managed to surpass Nike’s Jordan Brand, becoming the second largest athletic footwear seller in the United States. The adidas Yeezy line has actively contributed in the brand’s rise in popularity. With 2017 nearing its end, it seems that adidas is ready to upgrade the Yeezy Boost 350 for next year.

Back in September 2017, Pharrell Williams was spotted laced up in a never-before-seen iteration of the adidas NMD Human Race. The unknown colorway he was seen rocking appeared to pay reference to quite an important quote from the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance, namely “For liberty and justice for all.” The right shoe had “LIBERTY” printed over it and the left one had “JUSTICE,” both in bold, capital font. The Black-colored text contrasted well with the Tan-colored sneakers. While Pharrell and adidas have continued to collaborate every now and then, it seems that Chanel is joining in for this latest, upcoming release of the NMD Human Race.
