As an LES resident, I take tons of trips through SoHo and the first thing I notice whenever I’m there? The giant billboard with Zoe Saldana, for Calvin Klein. But once my tongue rolls back into my head and my transformation back to Lower East Scribe from the wolf in those Droopy Dog Cartoons finishes, the second thing I peep is the giant Adidas store front. Whenever I look in the window, there’s something different. One week it’s women’s hoops apparel, then it’s distance running, then it’s cross training. The one constant with them is change.

New Melo’s/Melo Nation Tee/Melo jacket/pants
Jordan kicks off the new fashion year with an introduction all gear and sneakers heads will fiend for. The coordination is tight and the color schemes are relevant. The New Melo 7’s are creamy and the Air Jordan 1 Anodized that follow are serious. As always, September into December is the time when gear is on the minds of the young baller, and the new styles display a strong boot, hoodie and the bubble jacket game that has Jordan Brand looking real strong off and on the court.

Hectic was the only word that could crack the too cool for school (or at least three more years of it), demeanor on John Wall’s face and sum up the last two years of his life. Going from a buried in the tar heel state prep star, to a top HS recruit who led the resurgence of a college hoops haven, a media sensation and a soon to be overall no. 1 pick in tomorrow’s NBA Draft, hectic might be the only way to describe a two-year span like that.

March Madness is a special event for sneakerheads since future stars will be remembered for their play and footwear. If you don’t believe me, try getting the image of Nike Air Flight Huaraches and Nike Air Force Max B’s out of your mind when you think of the Fab 5. It’s 2010 and the sneakers of choice on the college courts are the Nike Hyperdunk/Hyperize/Hypermax. What sneaker in your opinion will be engrained in your memory when you think of 2010 NCAA Basketball?
The Jordan 2010 is a milestone in the basketball community. The Jordan Brand’s cutting edge style and artistic vision has held court in the ball and snearkerhead community for many years. For its 25th Anniversary, the Jordan 2010 was released, continuing a legacy that has dated back to 1985. The Jordan 2010 has asymmetric styling, a noticeable clear window and responsive midsole that performs on the court. Critics might bash this shoe, but as readers, we have to keep in mind that innovators tend to receive flack for their creativity. Appreciate Jordan Brand’s new milestone and celebrate a brand that has lasted 25 strong years!

December is the month that many sneakerheads adore. It means one thing: coveted Retro sneaker releases. It happens every time, Jordan Brand and others re-release classics so that Santa can make many ball players and sneaker aficionados happy. I personally love the idea of Retros; I can save my OG’s and not worry about air bubbles busting, leather peeling, or viewing yellowed soles with sloppy glue marks from prehistoric sneaker technology. With all the new releases in 2009, a quarter of the NBA and professional players still wears Retros, showcasing their popularity on and off the court.
On December 19th, Jordan Brand is re-releasing the Jordan XII in the white/varsity red colorway. Reebok this month also re-released The Question in its original white/red colorway. Anybody remember? I’ll give you a hint: Lower East Scribe posted a picture of this epic match-up a few days ago. Ah yes, these two sneakers highlight one of the most pivotal match-ups between Jordan and the young whippersnapper A.I. The question I ask today is simple: What would you buy?
