Pick your poison guys
Here at Unpacked, we took notice of the number of great drops this February. There are so many of them, it is actually hard to choose which pair should you spend your money on. We previously made our must-cop list from adidas, so this time it is Nike/Jordan Brand’s turn. Check out our picks:
KD10 (in black and white)
Kevin Durant’s 10th signature sneaker will be dropping in a classic black and white colorway. They come with the usual KD10 features, along with a cool oreo marble outsole.
It will drop on February 1 with a $150 price tag.
These were last seen in 2013, and their return this year is timely, as they are the granddaddy of the Air Max 270. For the 180, it is the “Ultramarine” colorway that made the sneaker iconic with its 180-degree Air Max unit, along with a suede and mesh upper.
They are slated to return on February 2, with a $130 price tag.
These were last seen in 2014, and just like the return of the Air Max 180, they come back as a homage to one of the Air Max 270’s design inspirations. They are coming back in the iconic “Dusty Cactus” colorway, which consists of white and black, with accents of mint green.
Like the Air Max 180, the Air Max 93 will return on February 2 with a $130 price tag.
While they are not very common here in the Philippines, the Air Max Plus is a popular model in Europe with its mesh and TPU upper and Tuned Air midsole (we talked about its unique tech in a previous article). This particular colorway is straight fire with a stealthy black look combined with neon green accents.
These will drop on February 8 with a $150 price tag.
Aside from being Paul George’s second signature shoe from the Swoosh, this “PlayStation” colorway is extra cool. It has everything Playstation associated, including logos that light up and a vibration mechanism that mimics a DualShock controller.
These are dropping on February 10 for $150.
If adidas has Kanye West, Jordan Brand has Drake. Both rappers come up with dope collaboration sneakers, and Drake’s Air Jordan 8 collabs are really nice in either white or black. Both models are dressed in tumbled leather and suede, and have gold and red accents, along with Drake’s OVO logo found on the heel tab.
Both will drop in a limited run (with Titan most probably the only store here selling them) on February 16 and will retail for $225.
While the ‘Black Cement” Air Jordan 3s are coming back for the 5th time, the 2018 edition brings back the “Nike Air” logos. This OG look was last seen with the 2001 version, and we’re sure that they’ll have the same premium remastered treatment like the “True Blue” Air Jordan 3s released in 2016.
These are dropping on February 17, during Michael Jordan’s 55th birthday no less, and will retail for $220.
Air Jordan 1s are a definite must-have for every sneakerhead, and this “Bred Toe” colorway is a great one. While it is a new colorway, the “Bred Toe” has a color blocking that is quite close to the OG colorways of the Air Jordan 1, along with that buttery tumbled leather upper. Think of it as a “what if” sneaker that Michael Jordan could have worn during his run with the Chicago Bulls.
The “Bred Toe” Air Jordan 1s will drop on February 24 with a $160 price tag.
Nike’s latest runner is their answer to adidas’ Ultra Boost with the extra springy React midsole and a sleek one-piece Flyknit upper. Accents of pink and yellow make the shoe pop further, and while they are performance-oriented, they looked equally stylish too.
These are dropping on February 22 with a retail price of $150.
Well, they are dropping on February 2 (with a $150 retail price), but the Philippines release is scheduled on March 2 with a Php 7645 price tag. We’re including this on the list should you be lucky enough to grab a pair overseas. No worries if you can’t cop them though, as there will be a plethora of Air Max 270 colorways coming in the next few weeks.
