Bugs Bunny Had Air Jordan PEs Before Most NBA Players

air-jordan-vii-7-bugs-bunny-cardinal-sample-01

When Nike tapped Warner Bros. and the Looney Tunes for the Air Jordan marketing campaign in 1992, they created a limited run of Bugs-molded VIIs for promotional displays.

Above is a close look at one of the Bugs VIIs in a Cardinal-like colorway. Not only is the shoe oversized, but the toebox was designed to fit the toes on a rabbit’s foot. You’ll also notice JumpBugs embroidery along the ankle. An equally rare ‘Bordeaux’ version also exists.

Would you like to see Bugs return for next year’s 30th Anniversary celebration?

Air Jordan 6 Black/Infrared Rumored for Black Friday

Before the highly anticipated holiday Air Jordan 11 release, the Jordan Brand may be bringing back another classic for Black Friday.

Below are early images of the Black/Infrared Air Jordan 6, last released as part of the ‘Infrared Pack’ in 2010. While there aren’t any detailed shots yet, the shoe is accented by a more accurate shade of infrared than the last drop and appears to feature the 3M reflective underlay that was absent. We’ll surely get a better look shortly.

As of now, you can expect this release to go down on Friday, November 28.

Air Jordan 1 KO High ‘Royal’

As previewed back in March, the ‘Royal’ Air Jordan 1 KO High in scheduled to drop this fall.

Well, kind of. This pair actually makes use of Sport Blue to achieve the classic look. As you know, the blue hue will be featured heavily on Jordan retros this fall, coinciding with the first ever re-release of the ‘Sport Blue’ Air Jordan 6.

Does the less-then-royal shade throw the look off or will you still be in line for the release?

Air Jordan XI Retro Low “Infrared 23”

The Air Jordan XI Retro Low has been one of the most wanted and popular sneakers of the year and looks to continue that trend with the upcoming release of the “Infrared 23.”

Dubbed by some as the “Un-Space Jams,” the shoe does bear a striking similarity to the revered “Space Jam” XIs made famous by Jordan’s appearance in the animated movie of the same name. Highlighted by a near all black upper, cement print hit on the back heel, and a clear blue outsole, the demand for the shoe will be high. Make arrangements now as this shoe is set to drop this Saturday, June 14th.
