The Air Jordan XVII+ arrived long past MJ’s days in the Windy City. The design came to life in tones unlike past Air Jordan models, sporting a color scheme inspired by his team at the time.

Born in 1997, the black/red Air Jordan XII was on MJ’s feet during one of his most legendary performances. He led his team to a crucial playoff victory while suffering from severe flu symptons. The victory paved the way for his fifth career title. The unique design came from the mind of longtime Air Jordan designer Tinker Hatfield. Sporting classic Chicago tones in luxurious materials, the 1997 icon is now back for more nearly two decades after its debut. Available Saturday May 28 at BOTH LOCATIONS. Men’s and Women’s sizes available. Doors at 10AM.

Originally released in 2000, the Nike Air Presto became famous for its irreverent advertising, alpha sizing and ahead-of-its-time sock-like construction.
In the decade and a half since, the shoe has transcended performance running to become a sport style fixture. Now, 16 years after its introduction, Nike is updating the icon with new materials and technology. The result is the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit.
The shoe’s signature one-to-one fit becomes even more profound through the use of Flyknit in the upper, which delivers stretch in the collar, ventilation in the toe and tongue, and support in the heel and underneath the toecap.
In another first for the Presto franchise, the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit features a mid-cut collar, which lends a modern aesthetic. The TPU cage is reengineered to fit the Flyknit upper, while the ultra tooling with rubber in high contact wear areas delivers improved comfort and durability. Select sizes available now in Victoria. $215.
This Quickstrike comes suited in bright mango premium leather that carries to the sole. The theme of bright color continues with the green Jumpman over a globe on the back heel – a nod to His Airness evolving into a worldwide phenomenon. Dark green tones down the bright shoe most notably on the tongue, inner, and laces – while speckled paint graces the midsole for a clean finish. Available in limited quantity in Victoria on Saturday, May 7th. Sizes 8-13. $230.
Back in 1987, the 23 year old Chicago phenomenon was interviewed on a Television talk show rocking a flashy crimson and blue wind breaker suit.

A talk show mic and ‘On Air’ can be seen in the insole – hinting at His Airness being on Air both on and off the court. Available Saturday, April 30th at BOTH LOCATIONS. Doors at 10AM.
