The Air Jordan II brought luxury to the hardwood. Originally crafted in Italy from the finest of materials, the storied silhouette’s level of luxury is now raised by Chicago’s own Don C. Hailing from the South Side of Chicago, Don C came up at a time when the Bulls, number 23 and his Air Jordan sneakers took over the city. Don C launched Just Don in 2011, helping bridge the gap between sportswear and luxury fashion with unique, upscale caps. Following their debut collaboration in 2015, Just Don and Jordan now present the new Air Jordan II by Don C. Complete with a matching Just Don x Jordan Cap in the pack, the Air Jordan II is draped in quilted leather for a luxurious take on the 1987 icon.

Fly Kicks of The Day: The Nike Air Pressure Returns!

Nike Air Pressure

A long time ago in attempt to compete with Reebok’s super popular Pump line, Nike dropped their own sneaker featuring an air pump system called the Air Pressure. The sneaker didn’t catch on with the masses like Nike thought it would as it was very gimmicky. Nike surprised everyone when they announced they were resurrecting the sneaker from the dead with the air pump system in tact.

Nike Air Pressure

The Air Pressure wasn’t the only sneaker that featured the air pump technology, the Air Command Force released last year also utilized it.

nike-air-command-force-spurs

Many sneaker enthusiasts were happy the sneaker made its return, but were deeply disappointed the sneaker didn’t have the air pump system like the original. Nike heard those cries and this time around restored the Air Pressure in its entirety. The Air Pressure returns in its pure form, featuring the plastic sling container, air pump and it’s classic sky-high silhouette. The air pump allowed the wearer to adjust the cushioning and ankle support which was a key focus of sneakers in the past.

 

Sneakerheads with an appreciation of the past will love these and have no issue shelving out $300 bucks for them. The high price point which is probably due to the packaging and air pump system might scare away the newer generation. The Air Pressure is available now on Nike’s SNKRS App, hit the gallery below to see more photos of the Air Pressure.
