What were your favorites of the January releases? This January started off 2014 with a rush of heat. The anticipated front-runners in the brand new releases were the Melo M10 and the Adidas Rose 4.5. Retro fans had the chance to catch up with the Retro Jordan 10 in the cool grey version and the Retro Jordan 3 in powder blue. Surprisingly, there are still Retro Jordan 10s on shelves and the Jordan 3 Retro was an easy cop, mostly sold by now. We saw this month bring us some surprising new styles like the Kobe 9 Lifestyle in Lakers, Marble, and Year of the Horse versions. The Chinese New Year celebration also brought us a new Flighposite in a metallic green jade color. A new retro for the hot lava Air Tech Challenge II from Nike brought us all back to Agassi’s heyday. We also had two of the final Kobe Prelude releases in January leading to the Kobe 9 release next month.
In February, the Kobe 9 will take the stage on February 8th along with new Jordan XX8 SE colorway releases starting on Feb 1.
Which was your favorite of the January releases? The Jordan 3 and the Kobe 9 Lifestyles kept us on our toes all month. We enjoyed seeing the 2013 momentum roll into 2014. We hope all the heads out there were able to grab the ones you wanted. For those who took a break this month, February is coming with some heat. So, get ready.
