March 2nd, 2013 was sought to be a joyous day for many sneaker heads fore the re-arrival of the Air Jordan IV “Lightning”.

Well lucky for all a date has surfaced for the drop of these sure awaited sneaks. Sometime in November these joints are supposed be releasing at Jordan Brand accounts. But stay tuned, you know once we receive a date the readers will be first to know.
Either you love them or hate them, the Air Jordan 11 Low “Reverse Concords” will release in June, but today we take you up close with this video.
If you don’t know why they are called the reverse concord we will tell you: on the original pair of Jordan XI Concord the patent leather is black while the uppers are white. As you can see, Jordan Brand flipped the color locations.

Inspired by the band Nirvana is this latest pair of custom kicks from Bryce over at Element 97. Using the ‘New Love’ Air Jordan 1 as his base, Bryce pretty much leaves the shoe the way it arrived out the box. No extra paint was necessary to tweak these AJ1′s.
The thing that jumps out at first glance and really serves as the driving force for this pair of customs are the huge Nirvana intoxicated smiley faces that serve as the shoes new tongue logos.
Check out the pics after the jump and sound off in the comments below with your thoughts on these ‘Nirvana’ Air Jordan 1′s.

Unlike the tried and true method of customizing leather or canvas sneakers, to personalize a pair Nike Roshe Run opens up a whole new set of challenges. From how the mesh upper will react the color palette to the altering the paint’s viscosity, not many have perfected the difficult task till JP Custom Kicks. With a plain pair of all-black Nike Roshe Run, JP Custom Kicks was able to somehow “wring out” a pair of Air Jordan III Black/Cement instead. Full of details, right down to the cement/elephant accents and mid-sole color blocking, but the most unique aspect of this custom is how proportion each design element is. Considering just how popular it is, this pair will quite likely be the first of many Roshe Run customs to come soon.
