Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James have officially set their sights on Toronto and the All-Star game. Representing the East and West, respectively, each will showcase pinnacle performance shoes inspired by the city’s royal origins. Decorative badges commemorate individual player achievements while metal, leather and embroidery further embellish the limited-edition footwear.
KOBE XI ELITE LOW
A sleek black upper with a glowing green pop is a nod to the luminescence of the Northern Lights. Unique molded leather detailing on the heel and tongue gives the KOBE 11 new dimensionality. 8-13. $295.
The LEBRON 13 features a grey-green upper — reminiscent of the neutral tones of Toronto’s winter — with graphic blocking similar to the KD8. An icy, marbled effect covers the outsole heels of James’s game shoe while pins honor the player’s on-court triumphs. 8-13. $295.
Modern blocking, inspired by the classic look of flags spotted throughout Toronto that represent the city’s internationalism, brings a fresh graphic twist to the KD8’s Flyweave upper. Removable patches adorn the heel and tongue, and a white and light blue marble graphic, which references Toronto’s icy winter weather, decorates the outsole. 8-13. $265.
Jordan Brand launched the Retro Remaster initiative in spring of 2015. In response to consumer feedback, it incorporated enhanced color options, cushioning, materials and shapes while retaining each shoe’s original character. The brand sustains this initiative by evolving the remastering process and reintroducing the Nike Air logo on the heels of storied silhouettes. The decision, which honors original designs like never before, was approved by Michael Jordan and continues with the Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Cement’.
The fan-favorite Air Jordan 4 Retro ‘Cement’ returns for the first time since 1999, complete with randomized paint splashes, premium leather uppers and the famous NIKE AIR logo on the heel. Enter the raffle in the Victoria location for your chance to purchase a pair. Sizes 4Y-13. Raffle ends Friday, February 12th at 6PM.
