The Yeezy Mafia take to the internet to continue sharing the news with their rumor thirsty sneakerhead followers. The latest Tweets show dates for two hype Yeezy 500 releases. Guys, it’s going to be hot this summer!
The two upcoming Adidas Yeezy 500 sneakers are the true contrast of one another. One is completely light colored while the other is all black. They both follow the same monochromic scheme that is relative to all Yeezys lately.
Back when it was called the Desert Rat, this particular colorway had a story of its own. Kanye cleverly used his loving wife, Kim Kardashian, to market his apparel line when the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow on foot. A bundle was sold on Yeezy Supply for a sweater, bike shorts, and the sneakers for $760. For the heavy price of $760, the average resale price of $400 does no justice to the resellers.
This colorway will drop on Saturday, June 9 for $200.
In contrast to its predecessor, the Yeezy 500 Utility Black has no fishy story. At least not an official one by Kanye and Yeezy Supply. However, the Yeezy Mafia did pull an April fool’s prank on gullible sneakerheads by posting that the shoe was up for sale for 12.345,000 euros. Luckily, fans were quick to catch on to the joke. And now they know how long to wait.
This somber colorway will drop on Saturday, July 7 for $200.
According to the Yeezy Mafia, we may be welcoming another two Yeezy 500 colorways in Fall 2018. The deep purple upper sitting on a gum sole is the Yeezy 500 “Ultraviolet” and the all-white “Salt” dropping in October.
Moreover, Kanye West’s back on Twitter, and he’s finally taking us into his lab. Recently shared several images of new colorways. One of those is an image of some brighter colored Yeezy 500s.

Remember back in January when Kanye was spotted wearing sneakers that look so similar to white Wave Runner 700s? We were all like what are those? That was the first on-feet look at the Adidas Originals Yung1. We may be seeing this silhouette dropping soon for retail.
Thanks to leaker @py_rates, there may be a potential release date for Adidas’ new Wave Runner-esque silhouette, the Yung1. Rather than the monochrome neutral colorway that Kanye rocked, rumors are that an orange pair could drop on June 20, 2018.
We first heard of the Yung1 when it was announced to drop in a Frieza inspired colorway as part of the Dragon Ball Z x Adidas collaboration. But to be quite honest, this orange fiery silhouette looks a lot like the Super Saiyan Goku. What do you think?
Till Jagla, the Global Creative Director at Adidas writes that this is the “Return of the Falcon Dorf” which he said was created in 1997 for runners. The Adidas running team named it the Falcon Dorf after a small village they’d run pass every day called, Falkendorf.
Jagla believes that this old silhouette truly celebrates the older generation of sneakerheads. And in the wake of the dad shoe trend these days, Adidas took the opportunity to revive the Falcon Dorf. New, improved, and now named the Yung1, it stands alongside the likes of hyped Adidas kicks, like the Yeezys.
Our opinion: These kicks look pretty fresh fam! If you couldn’t pick up the Wave Runners, or if you just want to add on to that dad shoe collection, then don’t sleep on these!
While we can’t confirm release information about the clean white and grey model, or this red and navy one, look out for the bold orange colorway that’s set to drop for €130 on June 20, 2018, according to @py_rates. Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Yeezy 500 Utility Black dropping in June as well.
What a juicy week for Nike x Off White releases!
Virgil Abloh is one very busy man. How he juggles all this work, no one knows. Abloh is Kanye West’s longtime creative director, much before he became the founder of his own brand, Off White. Today, he’s proudly the first African American to become Men’s Fashion Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton. But, of course, sneakerheads know him best for his work on 10 loved Nike shoes.
The Nike x Off White was the spotlight collaboration of 2017. But just how many shoes is Virgil planning to release in The Ten part collection V2? As the Nike x Off White collaboration continues this year, we have the same silhouettes but seeing more colors.
The white on white Off White x Air Jordan 1 dropped earlier this year. But that was just the beginning of many Nike x Off White shoes waiting to release. @Py_rates are truly the plug when it comes to limited sneaker and specifically Nike releases. Several different informed leakers rely on their posts. They could almost be the “Yeezy Mafia” of Nike drops. The following information is provided by their account.
The black version of this shoe released late last month, while the white version will see its release among several hyped sneakers dropping on Saturday, April 14th.
Ah, the one that never dropped is finally dropping and the release date is rumored to be May 10th! Mark your calendars!
After being rocked with production problems it looks like @Nike & @off____white have over come there issues and will be dropping the @converse CTAS 70 Hi which featured in the original 'The 10' collection. The pair will be dropping on the 10th May 2018. Will you be looking to cop a pair now that the wait is over? #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
The world will be blessed with the third Off White Air Jordan 1 to release. Initially, it was thought to come in a UNC blue colorway, but py_rates are providing us with a better mockup featuring a dark powder blue instead. Truly a unique pair of Jays. The predicted release date is some time next month, retailing for $190.
@Nike x @off____white will be back in May with yet another @Jumpman23 Jordan 1, this time using the UNC pair as inspiration. The pair will feature orange stitching, we'd love to know what you think to our mock up. Let us know what you think to the new colour-way in the comments below. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
Another shoe that’s likely to drop in May is this. The Nike X Off White Air Force 1.
Not one, not two, but THREE colorways of the Nike Blazer Studio Mid?! That’s interesting. Last year we saw the white colorway release. This year we start with the Vanilla pair. To be quite honest, it looks like leftover white pairs that got dirty. But these are just mockups and the real deal will definitely have some differences. That one will supposedly release in July.
Following the dirty vanilla pair will come the most dope one of them three, the Wolf Grey colorway. It’s set to release in September alongside the Black pair which is also pretty decent.
The October Nike x Off White releases are many. We start with the Zoom Fly which a black pair of the white one that released in The Ten part 1.
Continuing on with the Black & White theme @nike & @off____white have going on in Part 2 of their 'The 10' collection, the duo will be dropping a new colour way for the Zoom Fly this October. Will you be looking to cop this version of the Zoom Fly? (Picture = Mock up done by us) Tag a friend in the comments below who would love to own a pair. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
But that’s not all for the Zoom Fly, get an eyeful of these bright pink kicks! Anyone say Breast Cancer Awareness month? That’s also in October! But we’re just guessing here. Who knows when these will actually release? No date has been confirmed yet.
*@Nike x @off____white are planning on dropping a new colour-way for the next ‘Zoom Fly’, this one’s definitely alot louder. We have come up with 4 different mock ups of how we imagine the shoe will look on the early info we have at this stage.Let us know what you think In the comments below is this a cop or drop situation for you? Tag a friend who'd rock these. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
Following that, the Air Force 1 Low, similar to the MoMA one that dropped before. October’s your second chance to cop it.
@Nike x @off____white will be dropping another black 'Air Force 1 Low' this October. Which do you prefer our mock up on what the shoe could look like or the @MuseumModernArt version that dropped previously? Let us know in the comments section below. Tag a friend who would love a pair of these. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
And of course, the white Air Max 90 from the Off White The 10 collection would be devastated without its black counterpart.
And finally, the last leak so far is the Air Max 97 releasing in two colorways. The black colorway will be releasing to compliment the white pair from 2017. That’s no surprise. But then we have a white one with mint accents and a grey sole, now that’s unique.
This November @Nike x @off____white will be dropping two new colour-ways in the Air Max 97's. As Part 2 of The 10 begins to take shape we see @virgilabloh make use of more vibrant colours such as 'Menta'. Let us know what you think to our mock ups in the comments below. Tag a friend who would cop. #NoMoreSecrets 🏴
And there’s more to look forward to! According to Hypebeast, Virgil Abloh will be presenting us two new Air Prestos. One black and one white.
Stay tuned to our blog for more information regarding Nike x Off White drops as the year unravels.
There are some days when you sit in silence and think to yourself, “Wow, Kanye West is such a genius mastermind artist and designer. Someday I want to be like him. He’s an inspiration to all!” Today is not one of those days. Why? Because those Yeezy Season 6 slides got all riled up like Joey:
Apparently, this isn’t the first time they’ve shown up on the internet. Remember when Kanye’s faithful wife, Kim Kardashian West, modeled for her husband’s line through a series of paparazzi-style photographs? In one of the pictures, you can spot her wearing the Yeezy Season 6 slides paired with Yeezy Season 6 apparel.
But back then they didn’t get any buzz like Yeezy sneakers effortlessly do. Especially since the Yeezy 500 Super Moon Yellow was the center of attention and had influencers everywhere copycatting Kim.
The slides recently dropped (and quickly sold out) on Yeezy Supply web store and Brownsfashion.com, according to Hypebeast. They sold for around $150 and it’s only a matter of time till we start seeing them online, either for reselling purposes or for flexing’s sake. But honestly, we think they look like some camper’s inflatable mattress or this child’s car seat. Maybe, as a father, Kanye looks toward his children for inspiration. I swear that story would make these slides way easier more worth it.
And of all the Yeezys releasing this year, this one is our easy drop. Safe to say we just saved 150 bucks. But I mean people wear weird Birkenstocks all the time, so what’s to say about those who wear something Yeezy- however questionable they look.
The drop for these was very sudden and came without warning. Similar to the suede Desert Rat boots that popped up in different stores late last month. So what’s the deal with Yeezy items dropping randomly in different places?
Could this signify that the slides will drop somewhere else soon and you could have another chance at copping the Yeezy Season 6 slides if you wanted?
After a nice amount of teasing us, Jordan brand reveals that a documentary in honor of the legend is in the making. Here’s all we know so far about the “Unbanned” The Legend of Air Jordan 1 documentary.
Jordan Brand began a teasing campaign for the Air Jordan 1 documentary back on February 7, 2018. The teaser we saw on a billboard in LA had every sneakerhead and their mother curious AF.
— Sneaker News (@SneakerNews) February 7, 2018
On the poster is the name of the production: “Unbanned The Legend of AJ1” along with the style code of the OG 1985 Air Jordan 1 Bred: 850911BY.
Finally, on the bottom of the poster, there’s a link to UnbanTheLegend. Consequently, curious fans visited the site only to find the same “Unbanned” graphics as on the poster, and an ‘unbox in’ countdown timer that ends on June 2, 2018.
👀 Documentary about the shoe that changed the world. Available for purchase, Summer 2018 https://t.co/KqnqCWaXCg
— J23 iPhone App (@J23app) February 7, 2018
Today we have clearer information about the Air Jordan 1 documentary, “Unbanned”. As per the website, the cast and crew include Chuck D, Lena Waithe, Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, Spike Lee, Dexton Deboree.
The world premiere of the “Unbanned” The Legend of Air Jordan 1 documentary will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 27, 2018. The tickets are being sold here.
Here’s the official trailer for the documentary:
In addition, as a way to give back to the people, part of the proceeds from this documentary will go to “causes focused on youth development and social education through sport and culture within disadvantaged communities.”
According to several different sources, the Nike Air Ships in Black/Red may have actually been the ones to get banned first. While others say these are just prototypes of the first Air Jordan 1- OG of the OG.
However, what would we make of the iconic Air Jordan 1 commercial featured in the opening of the trailer?
Whether Nike is rewriting history or not, we’ll know in the documentary. The production is sure to offer us more insight on the Legend! So we can’t wait for the answers to all our questions in June.
The Air Jordan 11 Prom Night sample that appeared on eBay in 2012 instantly sold for $11,000. Now Jordan brand is reportedly going to be showing it an official release on May 26th.
Usually AJ 11s drop in Q4. But this year we’re seeing Jordan Brand make way more releases throughout the year. While there’s nothing official, sneakerheads are losing their sh*t over the possibility of these dropping.

Air Jordan XI Retro
— SHOF (@soleheatonfeet) December 24, 2017
Previously referred to as “Blackout”, the Nike Air Jordan 11 Prom Night will be black on black on black, according to the Twitter sneaker news account @soleheatonfeet. There are no official images yet, but it should look something like this:
Violence over sneakers is not something new. In fact, around 1,200 people get killed over sneakers each year, according to a video on GQ (excerpted from the 2015 documentary about sneaker culture called Sneakerheadz). The violence often consists of beatings, robberies, and gun shootings. Parents should actually fear what shoes their kids are wearing.
In December 2012, after just buying the Air Jordan Playoff XIs, a kid was followed home by three teenagers who shot him to death for his shoes. Just a couple weeks ago in December 2017, a boy wearing his brand new Win Like ’96 Jordan 11, which were a Christmas gift from his mom, was murdered and robbed of them.
Understandably, it’s just human nature to want the things we can’t have. Sometimes the desire is so strong that, unfortunately, people get killed over it. Call it a crime of passion. A thoughtless action. Nevertheless, love for the sneaker does not justify violence over them. Sneaker violence is a terrible thing, yet it is the plain reality. That’s just the way it has always been.
With the Nike Air Jordan 11 Prom Night colorway being one of the most hyped releases, it makes us wonder what kind of violence will come next. If just a sample of the Nike Air Jordan 11 Prom Night sold for $11,000, then how valuable will this release be? Riots might break out in May over the Prom Night. Kids wearing the shoe could get mugged for them. But if people think they can make a fortune out of reselling this shoe, we think they should bring down those high hopes.
With Virgil Abloh having been on Kanye’s team in the past, who’s to say it wouldn’t happen again? An OFF-WHITE Yeezy is not some figment of the imagination. It is a look into the future of design with concise knowledge of the past. One designer, Huy Le envisioned a day when Virgil Abloh will pick up a Yeezy and make magic happen. This is what an OFF WHITE Yeezy would look like.
These babies do not come cheap. You can buy ready-made OFF-WHITE Yeezys for a minimum of $850. However, prices vary depending on your shoe size. Some sizes can cost you up to $50 more. The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Creams used for these customs are 100% authentic according to Huy Le. However, if you already own your pair of authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Creams, all you need to do is send yours over to be customized. Huy Customs will hand paint your Yeezys to give it that OFF-WHITE treatment for just $350.
What’s really noticeable in the photographs above, there is intense care to every detail of the customization. I mean check out that orange on the heel tab! Not to mention that the shoe also comes with the signature zip tie.
Custom sneakers have been a thing ever since Vans Customs started the tradition in 1966. The designer would make Vans with any fabric his customers brought to the store. And you can still customize your own Vans today to give it your own touch. We get to customize our homes, phones, desktops, workspaces, game characters, profiles, and even t-shirts, so why stop there? In a world full of Beluga 2.0s, why not be a little unique and add your own twist to things?

The Nike Air Jordan 1 is the ‘one that started it all’! So far, there are at least eight Jordan 1s releasing in 2018. We’re about to see which ones are really worth your time. It’s AJ1 SZN y’all!
The Gold Toe is covered in leather all throughout its upper with white on its lateral sides and a black outer swoosh as well as black covering the medial side with a metallic gold inner swoosh.
Metallic gold color covers the toe box, hence the name Gold Toe. Gold also is found around the ankle, cupping the heel, and on the branding on the insoles.
You can call this one the first HOT release of Jordan brand in 2018. As die-hard basketball and Jordan fans know, it all started with the Black/Red colorway. That’s why it’s freaking exciting that the Bred Toe is coming to us.
The all-new Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe releasing soon is a combination of the Bred and Black Toe colorways. Dappered in a Gym Red, Black, and Summit White color combination, this Air Jordan 1 is made with “Shattered Backboard” quality leather. That’s some butter for your toast right there.
It will be available at all Nike retailers. But because it’s likely that this colorway won’t sit and will get sold out pretty quick. Following in the footsteps of the Previous iconic Air Jordan 1s, this new iteration will surely make resellers quite a nice return on their money.
It’s interesting to mention that the color red is a prime attribute of the most expensive Jordans found on StockX. The most expensive Jordan 1 OG Chicago (1985) made over 4550.8% the original price, sold at $3,023. The less expensive Jordan 1 Retro Banned (2011) has sold for $2,760.
The most interesting thing to mention is that the Bred Toe is almost exactly the same as the popular Shattered Backboard. That Orange Black/Starfish-Sail colorway sold for $1,250 according to StockX.
But as we’ve seen before, people value the Gym Red color even more. So we expect to see the Bred Toe flying off the shelves to land onto the reselling market. As a matter of fact, it’s already up for pre-order on Flight Club at the rate of $500.
The next Nike Air Jordan 1 releasing is the Off White rendition. The white on white shoe sees a pop of color with orange and blue stitching. Unlike Part 1, there are statements that Part 2 will have a wider release.
There’s going to be so much hype behind the OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 White and everyone will be trying to cop it on SNKRS app.
But there’s more. Another colorway is said to release and it’s the UNC version with OFF WHITE.
Perfect for collectors, 6 Rings celebrates Michael Jordan’s six NBA championships. But don’t take that from me, just look at those insoles.
Like the Bred Toes dawned in that iconic Gym Red, the Game Royals flaunt that Royal blue color like there’s no tomorrow. It’s a classic color, which makes for an exciting release.
One of the most coveted colorways is returning after 5 years.
Female hypebeasts get their own exclusive release limited to a rumored 10,000 pairs. YAAAAS GURL!
Also for women, there’s The 1 Reimagined. Some of the Nike Air Jordan 1s are from the WMNS collection that drops on February 7, 2018. The collection includes five new reinterpretations of the Air Jordan 1.
So if you don’t have a date this Valentine’s Day, praise thy Lord! Because now you’ll have some cash for the Nike Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe or, if you’re lucky, the OFF WHITE Air Jordan 1! And if you’re wondering how to cop these, we can finally help you on the Nike battlefield. Cop these kicks with our dearly beloved and significantly improved copping solution.
After the success of the first OFF WHITE x Nike collaboration, Virgil Abloh may be teaming up again with Nike for another exclusive The Ten collection. At least that’s what it looks like! These Instagram posts show two colors of the OFF WHITE x Nike VaporMax 2018:
Releasing in 2018, the OFF WHITE x Nike VaporMax will retail for $250 similar to last year’s VaporMax. Its Flyknit upper will be available in black and another in white. The revolutionary Air VaporMax sole will be translucent. Of course, it’s not complete without the hallmark OFF WHITE branding which will be on the sides, laces, and let’s not forget the red plastic zip-tie.
So unless you live in a cave, you know of this collab. Virgil Abloh, the founder of OFF WHITE, had the privilege of reconstructing ten Nike shoes to create The Ten collection. He took apart ten classics and put them back together, adding his signature touch. It was one of the most hyped collaborations of 2017.
Today, the OFF WHITE x Nike Air Jordan 1 is dubbed by many to be the shoe of 2017. Reselling it will make you more money than Yeezys. Furthermore, the Converse from The Ten 2017 will be coming out early 2018 due to some production issues.
This is father and son duo who find pure joy out of sawing through expensive shoes, among other things. They start by showing us the architecture which inspired the Air technology. Later in the video, they saw through the shoe to show us what’s inside the Nike Air VaporMax.
Nike refused to disclose what is actually inside the sole when the father asked. They said it’s a mixture of gases, and that’s what gives you the ultra-light, bounce in your step. If you pay attention you can actually hear the pop when the machine saws through the lightweight cushioning-unit.
Virgil and Nike just showed off a white on white Nike Air Jordan in Paris Fashion Week! Feast your eyes upon its beauty:

By the end of December, we tend to look back and see the best and worst times that passed so we can move to the next year. Let’s give Kanye a helping hand and do a wrap up 2017’s Yeezy releases so we can happily awe at the Yeezys dropping in 2018.
Now that Yeezy season has come to a bittersweet end, let’s take a moment to reminisce Yeezys of 2017.
First, we had the bold Yeezy Boost 350 Bred:
Second, came the Yeezy Boost 350 Zebra, which re-released:
Then came the triple white, Yeezy Boost 350 Cream Whites:
And how can we forget the Wave Runner 700s?
At last, we had the three extremely hyped releases of Fall 2017 the Yebra, Beluga 2.0, and Blue Tints:
We also had a grey Powerphase that came out this month and a white Powerphase that came out earlier:
Oh, and the Desert Rat 500 Super Moon Yellow that came as part of a set that cost $760:
Next year seems promising and it looks like Ye and Adidas have their work cut out for them. We already know some of the Yeezys dropping in 2018. Well, let’s just start with the great news. It looks like Ye’s going for all neutral tones in 2018, which kind of takes us back to when Kayne first started with Adidas.
We’re moving away from crazy Boost 350 colorways. We have more subtle colors coming up in 2018: Sesame (left) and Ice Yellow (right).
The Desert Rat 500 is another Yeezy dropping in 2018. This time you won’t have to pay $760 for it. However, the Yeezy Mafia has led me to believe that the colorway dropping this time won’t be the same Super Moon Yellow.
We’ve also got the black Calabasas Powerphase early in 2018:
Moreover, still waiting for updates on new Wave Runner 700 colorways.
And could we be expecting updates about the apparent basketball Yeezy?
Also, what is this? It looks like something that would be created if the Wave Runner 700 and the basketball-ish shoe got married.
Keep your eyes open for more updates, because 2018 looks like it’ll be a nice year for new Yeezys to be born.
