Happy Saturday FLT!
Esco back here for the pickups of the weekend and we got some amazing kicks for you guys to feast your eyes on. We of course have those new school kicks in the form of KD’s and LeBron’s, and the Jordan Brand is blessing us with another beautiful throwback that everyone is going to need to have. These throwbacks of course, are the Carmine 6’s, and for old and new sneakerheads galore, these are definitely great collection starters or grails for that beautiful collection. Let’s get started with the Pickups of the Weekend!
First off I’m going to start with the seductive Nike KD 6 Brazil’s that are dropping on Saturday. Honestly, like I’ve said before, I’m not a huge fan of lows, but these KD’s are so sleek that they need a spot in my closet. The all black colorway with the green and yellow accents throughout the shoe really make it pop, and the dotted pattern inside the main checkmark really make the shoe so much more unique. This of course is homage to the Brazil World Cup that is happening this summer, because the KD 6’s look like soccer shoes morphed into basketball shoes, another thing that adds to the unique look of this shoe. Look for the Nike.com link on Twitter around 8 AM tomorrow with about $130 in the bank.
The second low top pair of sneakers that are coming out on Saturday are the Nike LeBron 11 Low Turbo Green, which is kind of a weird name because the colorway has no green at all, but my observations are irrelevant to Nike. The main colorway of the shoe is a Glacier Ice Blue with tiny accents of Laser Crimson outlining the main Nike Swoosh and eyelets of the shoe. These are definitely a solid pair of kicks to keep on ice for a while and bust out in the middle of the summer, or even to ball out in. I actually need to stop slacking on a pair of LeBron’s and cop a pair already, because they’re always dropping the wildest colorways that always have my eyes attracted. Look for these on Nike.com or Footlocker.com for a retail price of $170.
Now, for the moment you have all been waiting for, the Drop of the Weekend! The Jordan Brand is definitely showing it’s appreciation to its loyal customers by blessing us with the drop of the Air Jordan 6 –Carmine. This colorway is such an iconic one, as this is one of original colorways that Michael himself wore when he was still ballin on these lame dudes. The Carmine red combined with the white of the shoe make it stand out and have people looking down at them once you enter a room, and many will pay respect to you, not only for having, but being lucky enough to even get your hands on a pair like these! I DEFINITELY need these in my closet for that beautiful summer rotation that everyone is trying to perfect, and I’ll be up with the rest of the sneakerheads at 8 A.M. to try and cop me a pair. Retail on these bad boys are the normal $170 for Jordans.
Like always, send me what you guys were able to cop, and maybe we can get a couple of you guys on the site for our viewer appreciation of the week! Again, if you want to talk kicks, I’m your man on Twitter, @EscooMontana. -Esco
