Air Jordan III, IV, & IX “Silver Anniversary” Release Info

After much speculation regarding the Air Jordan “Silver Anniversary” Collection, it has now been announced that the Air Jordan III, IV, and IX will all be releasing in the “Silver Anniversary” colorway on March 20th of this year. However, while each pair will be releasing on the same date, Jordan Brand seems to want to test Jordanheads’ love for not only the shoes but also the hunt. Each pair will be distributed among different retailers, meaning you’ll have to visit more than just one Jordan Brand retailer if you want to get your hands on all three pairs. If JB has this planned for these three Air Jordan silhouettes, we can only imagine what’s going to happen with the “Silver Anniversary” Air Jordan XI. Via Sneakerfiles

Nike SB Dunk High Sample – Urban Haze

Check out these Nike SB highs that have an urban haze upper with black accents seen on the laces, midsole, inner lining, and swoosh, while navy accents are visible on the rear of the sneaker. An interesting aspect of this SB Dunk High is the image of a pair of scissors shown on the upper which is meant to pay homage to skaters from the 1990s who would cut high-top sneakers into mid-tops for comfort reasons. This “Urban Haze” Nike SB Dunk High is set to release later this year. Via Sneakerfiles

Li-Ning Officially Launches U.S. Site

If you keep up with the on-the-court action shots we periodically bring you then chances are you’ve spotted the Los Angeles Clippers’ Baron Davis sporting his BD Doom 1. If you’re an avid follower you also saw us inform you of the “Bearded Baron” Portland Giveaway. Well, that giveaway occurred this past Mondy on President’s Day- from the new and first Li-Ning shop in the U.S. Located in the same region as the Nike headquarters- Portland, Oregon- the Li-Ning store opening saw a great turnout, with B. Diddy himself making an appearance and taking time out to meet and greet some of his fans. Moreover, both basketball apparel and the NBA guard’s BD Doom 1 were all also on sale for $100- for those of you interested. Don’t fret if you can’t make it out to Portland because the company has launched its own American website from where you can also make purchases. “The eagle has landed,” now let’s see what kind of competition Li-Ning offers the top American sneaker companies.

Midnight Release: Nike Air Foamposite One “Copper”

Just like it happened when the first pictures of the Nike Air Foamposite One “Eggplant” surfaced, sneakerheads from all over have been anxiously awaiting the release of the Nike Air Foamposite One “Copper” that such celebrities as rap recording artist Wale have been teasing us with for what feels like an eternity. But the wait is JUST about over. The Nike Air Foamposite One “Copper” will be releasing in a limited run and adult sizes tomorrow for a suggested retail price of $200. Certain Nike retailers that will be a part of this release might even start selling them as early as midnight- including online accounts and such stores as the Foot Locker shop in 120 West 34th Street, midtown Manhattan, NY. Dress warm! Either that or hope that no online problems occur- but with as high a demand as this sneaker has, that’s almost inevitable. Via Sneakerfiles
