Jordan 6 Rings “Bel-Air”

This year has been full of retro release surprises from Jordan Brand but they’ve also found a way to turn heads without relying on a popular retro model. Instead, they revealed a West Coast inspired collection as a tribute to the WB Sitcom from the 90s, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” This ‘Bel-Air’ collection started with the Air Jordan 5 Retro a couple weeks ago and they’re not done; they’ve got a plethora of silhouettes lined up to take on the name. This weekend, the ever-popular hybrid, the 6 Rings from Jordan, will now be getting the West Coast treatment. Forget the dougie, harlem shake, and twerking. Let me see you do the Carlton!!! The Jordan 6 Rings “Bel-Air” will be dropping this weekend at UBIQ Walnut.

Air Jordan X Retro “Steel”

No one would have thought that these would be back on the sneaker market, especially after its 2005 release, but they’re back! Jordan Brand has re-retroed the Air Jordan X Retro “Steel” in its original form and build from 1994. Bringing back memories of MJ getting down on his hands and knees and kissing the floor in Chicago goodbye, this shoe originally released during His Airness’ first retirement, while he was playing baseball in the Arizona Fall League for the Scottsdale Scorpions. Now, these Steels are back for a release this weekend, Saturday, October 12, 2013 in a full family size run.

Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 TXT “Bred” and “Concord”

Hybrids are making a push right now and we’re not just talking about the cute, little cars that run on vegetable oil. We’re talking about sneakers. Artificial fusions of two completely different shoes to make the ultimate hybrid. MJ had his chemists working overtime for these beauties and we ain’t complaining. Two Jordan hybrids will be invading UBIQ this weekend in the form of the Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 TXT “Bred” and “Concord”. MJ borrowed elements of the Jordan 11’s “Bred” and applied them to the original framework of an Air Jordan to create the Retro ’95 TXT “Bred”. The Air Jordan 1 Retro ’95 TXT “Concord” applied a similar design using that colorway we know and love. Both sneaks sport side panels wrapped in heavy mesh coupled with patent leather around the toe box. “JUMPMAN JORDAN” stands out nicely on the tongue tag accompanied by the “23” above.  Carbon fiber accents the wings logo providing a classy finish to this retro hybrid. We’ll have them for you in-store, this Saturday for $130.

Air Jordan 5 ‘Bel Air’

In September 1990, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air sitcom debuted on television. That same year that Jordan Brand dropped the Air Jordan 5, making 2013 the 23rd anniversary of the shoe. Considering how much Jordan Brand feels about the number 23, is it any wonder these coincidences had any influence on the release date of this shoe? A breathtakingly FRESH new colorway the Air Jordan 5 ‘Bel-Air’, as its name implies, takes inspiration from the very colorful Will Smith character of the legendary 90’s TV sitcom. Known to for his flashy clothing, among them the reversed Bel Air Academy blazer, Will usually showed (everyone) up on set in dope kicks – in the show’s opening scene Will famously rocked the Air Jordan 5 with no laces. With it’s neon pop of colors and wild prints, these kicks personify 90’s fashion fit for a – wait for it – Fresh Prince.

October 5th is the drop date for these hyped up Js. Cue the music…

Air Jordan V “3Lab5”

It’s a big year for the Jordan V. To honor 23-year old model, Jordan has been giving it a bunch of shine via releases such as the “Fire Red” and “Fear”. They’ve definitely outdone themselves with the “3Lab5” though, taking the classic Elephant print that first debuted in 1988 for the Air Jordan III and bringing it to the V for the first time ever. Part of the The Air Jordan Elements collection, a brand new series of Jordans brings their iconic patterns and design elements to shoes that never featured them in the past. As the most legendary of all Air Jordan design elements, Elephant print made for a obvious starting point for this new creative endeavor. This is sure to be an instant classic, even if it took them a whole bunch of years to get around to it, better late than never.
