Shelf Life (4.24-4.30.2016)

My love for sneakers came from the Nike Lebron VII, the Adidas Stan Smith and the Jordan X. The sneaker culture strongly influenced my lifestyle by giving me a passion and hobby . Every week on Shelf Life, I’ll bring you the top sneaker releases based on my love and knowledge of the sneaker industry, as well as other pairs that might have sparked my interest. 


Jordan Brand back at it again with another Air Jordan I High, adidas continues its Consortium collaboration with Foot Patrol and a super clean Saucony collab with West NYC highlights this week’s Shelf Life iteration. With that being said, here are my top kicks releasing this week.

Air Jordan I High OG “Letterman”



This shoe has been highly anticipated for a couple of months now, and is finally releasing this weekend. The infamous Jordan I High OG silhouette makes any sneakerhead’s mouth water, especially with that “Nike Air” stitching on the tongue. The combination of a supple crimson leather and a smooth navy patent leather upper makes this pair pop day or night, and would go very nicely with some tapered black pants or darker jeans. Being a Jordan I, I would definitely give these a beating as it would only accentuate the shoe’s aesthetics and give this pair some character.

These Air Jordan I High OG “Letterman” will be releasing on Saturday, April 30 2016 at select Nike Canada retailers such as Exclucity, Foot Locker House of Hoops, BB Branded, as well as Online on Nike Canada for $215.

I would definitely keep a close eye on these as any Jordan I High sells out rather fast. If you want a pair, try to make some solid preparations and good luck on tracking these down.
