Details on Air Jordan 1 "Black Toe" Returning in 2016 (Photos)

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Chicago" was the first of what looks to be many classic Jordan 1s making a return in Jordan Brand's remastered line that began back in 2015.

The Chicago 1s started things off with its release in OG form, after first retroing in 2012, but in disappointing fashion. The Air Jordan 1 "Bred," last released in 2013, will be coming back in its true OG form when it comes out in September.

It looks like we will be seeing another classic OG 1 returning this year as well. The "Black Toe" 1s, an OG colorway, will be making its return in remastered form. It will release sometime this year.

This colorway last released in 2013. Like the Bred 1s, it was released in Nike Air OG form, but it wasn't true to the original shoe. In 2016, it will be higher cut and closer to the shape like the original, with the leather quality also getting a major upgrade. 

Expect these to retail for $160 when it comes out in November. 

Do you plan to cop these?

Details on James Harden's Adidas Shoe & When It Will Release

When James Harden was with Nike, it was largely expected he would be the next athlete with a signature shoe. Reports had it that his new shoe would come out during the 2015 All-Star break.

Instead, Nike decided to make Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving their signature shoe athlete instead. Nike received instant success, James Harden left for a huge deal with Adidas and the rest is now history.

Since then, Harden has been repping the CrazyLight Boost shoes for Adidas, their signature basketball shoe. However, it looks like a signature for the Beard is in the works and could release by the 2017 All-Star break.

Here are the full details of the Adidas Harden 1 shoe via Nice Kicks, where they attended a recent #ProjectHarden event:

_ The shoe is simple. Daringly simple. There’s a slanted leather toe cap, a low-cut collar similar to last year’s Crazy Light 2.5 shape, and an off-center asymmetrical lacing setup that leans to the lateral side of the shoe. (Beyond that, it was tough to make out many more details.)

_ The upper features Primeknit in doses, and I’d assume that might vary by colorway. The pair featured in the VR demo was a clean Black/White/Red, with a black collar and heel, and sharply contrasting toe cap, midsole and outsole in white. There were a few red accents throughout. The shoe will look awesome on court from afar, with a clean and sharp court block.

_ It has full-length Boost cushioning. As you can imagine, Harden’s shoe will be prominently featured this season by adidas, so it’s only right that the brand equip it with its best cushioning platform.

_ The Boost is encased. While we’ve seen Boost can be colored to black or red on the Uncaged UltraBoost running shoe, it’s sounding like hued Boost is still far away for Basketball. So the Harden 1 looks to incorporate a rubberized housing of the Boost. The housing appears to split at the midfoot, so the Boost section can be colored in the front half, and then take on a different color in the heel half, allowing for a variety of colorblocks.

_ We’ve been under the impression the Harden 1 won’t be releasing until early 2017, and likely around All-Star Weekend, but at the end of the demo video, as the shoes were on my own feet, James joked, “I’m gonna need those back. You can get yours in December.” So, expect the brand to launch some kind of early release just at the end of this calendar year in December, clearly.

_ Adidas will be posting updates on the Harden 1 throughout the year, and you can follow along on the @ProjectHarden Instagram account. Stay tuned!!

Harden is clearly the face of the Adidas Basketball brand. Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose already have signature shoes with the company, as well as Minnesota Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins getting his own PE. It was only a matter of time Harden gets his own shoe. 

Are you excited about this release? Do you plan to cop this sneaker?

Twitter Reacts to Emmanuel Mudiay Under Armour Logo Looking Like Swastika (Photos)

Emmanuel Mudiay has a deal with Under Armour. He is an up-and-coming star for the Denver Nuggets, and he could have a signature shoe headed his way.

Mudiay seems to be on track, as pictures leaked of Under Armour filing for a trademark of this logo:

The logo reveal has been getting a lot of attention, but for all the wrong reasons. Many believe the logo resembles a Swastika, which is not a good look.

Here is how some reacted:

It's not a good look for Under Armour. Luckily, this is merely just a trademarked logo. It has not appeared on any of the team's apparel or shoes yet, so they have time to fix it before they receive more public backlash.

What do you think of the logo? Is is that bad, or just an overreaction by some folks?
