Each February, some of footwear’s most notable lines deliver a batch of colorways in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month. Today, we take a look at one of the commemorative editions coming out of this year’s batch. Jordan Brand takes its Air Jordan 1 Midmodel and welcomes the silhouette to its “Equality” theme. The sneaker adds a mix of black and sail throughout its paneling with patchwork patterns added to the Swoosh logos. Additional branding hits include the AJ1’s signature “WINGS” insignia along with Carmelo Anthony‘s logo making its way onto the tongue. Lastly, the celebratory colorway is topped off with “EQUALITY” stamped on its heel in a large font.
The Air Jordan 1 Mid “Equality” arrives on January 15 at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike.com. Fans of MJ’s first model can also take a look at its “Turbo Green” colorway. via Hypebeast.com
Following on from the first look at the collection earlier this week, mastermind JAPAN and BAPE have returned with a look at every piece in the upcoming release. The capsule — which encompasses hoodies, long-sleeves, T-shirts, face masks and caps — focuses on co-branding, with Skull, Shark and Ape Head graphics throughout the collection, as well as a new camouflage print that mixes the two brands’ logos.
Take a full look at the collection in the gallery above, and you can expect the capsule to release exclusively at the BAPE and mastermind concept store in Japan on January 12.
Next up in the Under Armour Curry 6 color selection is the “Heart of the Town” edition. Shortly after the release of the “Fox Theater” colorway, its next drop draws inspiration from the heartfelt relationship between Steph Curry and the city of Oakland. His tenth and current season – all in Oakland – has been one for the history books as Curry has managed to lead his squad to three NBA championships trophies. UA’s full-length HOVR midsole sports Curry’s “SC30” insignia that’s complemented by the line’s signature upper on the tongue.
The Under Armour Curry 6 “Heart of the Town” drops on January 18 for $130 USD via UnderArmour.com and select UA retailers. A limited amount of pairs is currently available at the SC30 x Oakland pop-up in downtown Oakland which is open until Sunday.
Xlarge continues its hot streak of collaborations, following the Dragon Ball Super: Broly capsule with a new range of Sonic the Hedgehog gear. Encompassing layering pieces, shirts and sweat pants, the collection centers around thematic graphics, showcasing classic Sonic alongside a more modern 3D iteration.
Miles “Tails” Prower joins Sonic on a crewneck sweater, while The Blue Blur takes center stage on a varsity jacket, long-sleeved T-shirt and futuristic mockneck pullover. Muted grey and black tones emphasize Sonic’s signature blue hue, accented by hits of white and red to match his sneakers.
