The Air Jordan XXX is a unique mash-up of Jordan’s evolution as a player and an innovative design collaboration, making this anniversary-marking shoe an apex of a variety of influences. The design of the Jordan XXX was done by Jordan’s long time designer Tinker Hatfield and his fellow designer Mark Smith, who have helped broaden the Jordan narrative to form a story on the Air Jordan XXX, one that shows a storied yet timeless lineage with a foresight towards the future.

Hot Or Not: Air Jordan XXX

Jordan played 15 seasons in the NBA, with both the Chicago Bulls and the Washington Wizards – and has been instrumental in popularizing the league. His biography in NBA also by acclamation says he is the greatest basketball player of all time. Through his leaping abilities shown by his slam dunks gave him the nick name “AIR JORDAN” which is also the name of his brand and his “Airness”. In 2015, Jordan became the first billionaire NBA player in history.

The Air Jordan XXX features a knit and woven upper shell highlighted by a unique toe cap and a ‘Flight Speed’ chassis, where each plays a crucial role in select portions of the shoe. The shoe is defined by five main components: height, toe, traction, material and fit which were Jordan’s request to designer Tinker Hatfield. He was anticipating a shoe that looks fast, which was accomplished through the use of a new knit collar and graphic, used along the heel and forefoot. A smooth toe piece fashioned by Mark Smith using a new printing technique offers unparalleled breathability. Each of its elements was developed by analyzing performance insight or design inspiration fundamental to the player and Jordan Brand’s evolutions.

The Air Jordan XXX will officially be released on February 12, 2016.

They say that it’s great to have friends in high places, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. A friend of mine, who happens to be in radio, invited me out to a private event held at the Marquee in NYC on Tuesday, July 18th. Little did I know that my evening would be spent amongst big names like Mr. Kevin Liles, Tee Grizzley, London on da Track, Busta Rhymes, Phresher, Grafh, LouGotCash, Smack White, and more– in celebration of the launch of the Freestyle 50 Challenge Part II.

Kevin Liles, whom is a media guru, co-founder of 300 Entertainment, and has served as head-honcho of various other entities, is back with part II of the #Freestyle50Challenge– looking for another star. Now let me remind you of who 300 Ent. houses–Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Migos, Eric Bellinger, Tee Grizzley, Frank Ocean, and Shy Glizzy to say the least; who would miss an opportunity like this? Here’s the irresistible part about the Freestyle 50 challenge… rappers have to upload a video of them spitting the hottest bars over Tee Grizzley’s ‘No Effort’ in hopes for $10,000, singles deal with 300 Ent., and a track made by the one and only, London on da Track. Once again I’ll say, WHO WOULD MISS OUT ON AN OPPORTUNITY LIKE THIS? Submissions will be viewed by Kevin Liles and his team through Instagram and Twitter (technology changes everything, no excuses!) Make sure to use the tags #Freestly50challenge, @verizon, and @300ent to get noticed. Hopefully, if your freestyle is hot enough, you’ll be the next big thing on 300, and on your way to stardom.
