“When the Star Player debuted in 1975, it combined everything original, active and cool. Combining iconic Star Chevron style with an unmistakable Converse silhouette, the Star Player was a true game changer. The shoe brought a new dimension to the game and staked its claim all the way from the courts to the street. With classic designs in leather, the Spring 2011 lineup showcases how original designs remain modern.” – Ronnie Fieg

March Madness OG Air Jordan Tournament Bracket

16 Mar

Shout out to


Last year,’s March Madness Sneaker Tournament was a huge hit with readers, so you know they had to bring it back again for this year’s Big Dance festivities. During their previous sneaker tourney, it seemed that a lot of people were voting for a specific colorway rather than the overall shoe as intended, so for the 2011 edition, they figured – let’s take all possible confusion out and just make it a battle royale between the 32 greatest OG Air Jordan colorways of all time. The concept here is the best original Bulls-era Air Jordan colorways going toe to toe to see which shoe stands above them all. You may not agree with all the selections or seedings, but I can pretty much guarantee that this is going to be a lot of fun for everybody once the madness begins. Almost every shoe featured here is a juggernaut in its own right, so it should be pretty interesting to see how this one plays out. Just like last year, it will be the readers who decide the outcomes, so head over to Sneaker News HD to examine the brackets and check back tomorrow night for the start of the Round 1 voting.

I got my picks so make sure you get yours in!!

Air Max Jordan 2… First Look

10 Mar

Following in the footsteps of the first Air Jordan classic to receive a performance upgrade, the Air Jordan Alpha 1, the Air Jordan 2 will get a new undercarriage and modern upgrades. The upper looks to be nearly identical to the classic silhouette, but the full-length Max Air sole we’ve seen throughout the Nike and Jordan Brand basketball lineups now provides cushioning. This particular colorway rehashes an OG look, but features patent leather on the quarter panel and other minor changes. Expect more information to surface on this new hybrid very soon.

As a personal fan of both the Air jordan 2 and Air Max I was a little disheartened to see the heel tab with the word “AIR” is such simple font. (Just my opinion)
