Air Jordan III Retro "Cyber Monday"

It turns out the "Cyber Monday" Air Jordan 3 won't release on that day after all. After much release date shifting, the model is currently scheduled to release on Oct. 15th. While the sneaker isn't releasing on Cyber Monday, it's likely that nickname will stick given how long it's been associated with the shoe and the precedent set by last year's "Cyber Monday" Jordan 1. Jordan release dates, and sneaker release dates in general, have been moving a lot lately, so it's entirely possible this one will change again in the coming weeks. Readers can get updates on the "Cyber Monday" Jordan 3 here.

Release Date: 10/15/16

SoleFly x Air Jordan 23 Retro "Florida Marlins"

Two weeks ago, SoleFly dropped a teaser for an upcoming collaboration with Jordan Brand inspired by the Florida Marlins organization and its 1997 World Series victory, the first of the franchise’s history. It unpredictably arrives at a time of mourning and sad remembrance, so iIf anything, this collaboration could not have arrived at a better time. It takes a lot to bring a city known for bright lights and unabashed celebrating to its knees, and although Jose’s passing was a big blow to South Beach, the Marlins showed last night that the city would bounce back with ease.The SoleFly x Air Jordan 23 will release on October 22nd, 2016, limited to 1,500 pairs. Full images of the shoes and pricing info will be revealed soon.

First Look: Air Jordan 11 Retro "Wool"

It sounds like the "Space Jam" Air Jordan 11 won't be the only colorway of Michael Jordan's eleventh signature model to release in late 2016. Rumor has it there's a wool edition of the sneaker in the same vein as the "Wool" Jordan 3 and "Wool" Jordan 12. The only imagery to leak of this Air Jordan 11 so far is the above photo. Curiously enough, it looks like the sneaker in the picture has a fuzzy suede on its upper and not wool, but we'll have to wait and see if the final pair does indeed look like this. Perhaps the best confirmation of the "Wool" Jordan 11's arrival came from @J23App, who alluded to the shoe's release with the below tweet.

Michael Jordan Issues Statement on Charlotte Protests and Keith Lamont Scott

In the wake of the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott and resulting protests in Charlotte, N.C., Michael Jordan is calling for peaceful demonstrations. "First, I want to express my condolences to the Scott family for their loss," reads Jordan's statement posted on Twitter by his manager, Estee Portnoy. "I also wish for a full recovery to those who have been injured. In light of the tragic events of the past three days, it is more important than ever that we restore calm and come together, as a community, in peaceful demonstration and conversation, and in constructive and non-violent ways. As part of the fabric of Charlotte, the Hornets organization is committed to working with civic leaders, our elected leaders and law enforcement to foster more trust, transparency and understanding so we can heal and grow together as a community." The basketball legend's ties to the state of North Carolina run deep: he grew up there, went to college there, and is an owner of the Charlotte Hornets.

A 20-Year Old Is Using Charity to Put an End to Sneaker Violence

Being part of the sneaker game has taken 20-year old Dante Holley on an emotional ride for the past few years. An avid collector, the South Jersey native's shoes were destroyed in a house fire in 2015. Fueled by the realization that family, health and safety were far more valuable than material items, he used his knack for getting his hands on sneakers for more charitable efforts, beginning with a 1,000-shoe donation to the non-profit Soles4Souls. Holley, an aspiring rapper and producer, continues to use his platform to confront the issue of sneaker violence. In perhaps his biggest endeavor to date, the young man is sponsoring the 2016 Sneaker Violence 5K run this Saturday. The event will benefit God’s Gift, a Pleasantville nonprofit that invests in the future of young people.

Watch These Students Give Their Teacher the Air Jordans He Always Wanted

With so many stories of greed and corruption plaguing sneaker collecting, it's easy to overlook the fact that the vast majority of people in the hobby are rooted in kindness. Take young Hector Montez and his classmates, for example. Grateful for his teacher's commitment to him throughout the years, he wanted to show his appreciation with a gesture. Recalling a past conversation with Thomas Walser, a teacher and football coach at Coronado High School, Montez remembered him saying that that "Taxi" Air Jordan 12 was his favorite sneaker, but that he was never able to get a pair. So, as a way to give back to the man he says has always been by his side, Montez and the rest of the class took matters into their own hands. Earlier today, the students presented Walser with the Air Jordans of his dreams in his very own size. His reaction, caught in the video below.

26-Year Old Air Jordans Found in Time Capsule from 1990

Before the advancements made with the internet, people buried time capsules as a way to reconnect with the past. With a seismic retrofit project scheduled for Oregon's Washington County public services building in the next few months, a time capsule from 1990 was discovered on the property. It's contents? Cassettes, VHS tapes, local newspapers, TV Guides and an worn pair of "Fire Red" Air Jordan 5s, hang tag intact. Unfortunately, the Jordans show every bit of their 26 years of existence. The outsoles are badly yellowed and the midsoles have completely crumbled due to age as expected. Still, a hell of an item to unearth in the home state of Nike.

Drawing inspiration from the punk rock era, the UNDEFEATED x A Bathing Ape collection features a Fishtail Parka, bomber jackets, button-ups, T-shirts and the iconic Shark hoodie. Loud graphics such as an audacious "BAPE’S NOT DEAD" and bold prints, camo incuded, are found throughout.

A Bathing Ape BAPESTA "Black/White"

A Bathing Ape’s BAPESTA sneaker is back with a bang, these new models proudly, if subtly, showing off the brand’s starred logo for a launch that’s set to drop at the end of this summer. In addition to the clean uppers, a metallic "BAPE" lace lock adorns the tonal shoe with a bit of flair. It’s been a quiet period for the cult Japanese imprint’s footwear line but these updates to its BAPESTA shape might just serve as a reminder of what the label is capable of. Both black and white pairs are available from September 24th at A Bathing Ape for approximately $175 USD.

PUMA Autodisc Lacing Sneakers App

Nike isn't the only brand with an auto-lacing sneaker. Puma's been touting its own take on the tech, which updates its old Disc lacing system, for a while. While there's still little evidence of the Puma Autodisc coming to retail, another promo version has popped up. This one, shared by Hikmet Sugoer on Facebook, syncs the shoe with an app that allows the user to tighten or loosen it with the press of a button. Previous versions of the Autodisc required the wearer to actually press a button on the shoe to fasten it. According to Sugoer, the sneaker is one of only 25 pairs produced.
