Sneaker lovers prepare to drop hundreds on new shoe drops

  Hype! Hype! Hype! February is looking pretty hot with some major sneaker releases. Two specific shoe drops have been highly anticipated.    

One of the releases are the sexy Air Jordan 6 “Black Infrared” OG 2019. These are it, chief! After months of anticipation these bad boys are finally dropping tomorrow, retailing at a total of $200. They are also releasing for a full family run in all different sizes.     

These Air Jordans have an all black nubuck top with eye catching infrared details on the heels, mid-sole, and lace lock. Finishing up with a glistening icy sole and of course the returning “Nike Air” on the heel that’s been around since its original release in 1991. Don’t sleep on these because they are FIRE!     

The only bad thing about this shoe is its upper material, which is nubuck. Nubuck can get dirty easily, especially with liquids, and most stains are not easily removable if they are removable at all so keep that in mind before buying.      Also, it’s suggested to go half a size down because it does fit a little big. Some of the better qualities of the shoe is the air bubble in the sole for extra comfort and the reflective 3M throughout the upper.     

Next up we have the Nike Adapt BB- the basketball shoe of the future. This shoe is mind blowing with its design. The Adapt BB has an auto lacing system that’s customizable to let the owner play in distraction free comfort.  Plus when the shoe battery dies the shoe will unlace themselves so buyers won’t have to worry about that or be stuck in the shoe till they charge.    

With the upcoming Nike Adapt app, buyers will be able to customize the fit of the shoe, change the colors of the lights in the sole, check battery levels and switch their presets.      

Charging the shoes won’t be a problem at all. Just place them on the charging mat and watch the sole light change from red to green. The Nike Adapt BB is the next signature shoe for the Nike Adapt series.      

The shoe is black, platinum and white in color just like when they were first dropped. The shoes consist of a strong black mesh-like material on the upper with a platinum Nike Swoosh on the outer side of the shoe and it is all tied together with a stiff yet comfortable sole. The sole is icy blue and white.     

The very first Nike Adapt shoe that ever was released was the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0. The HyperAdapt was more of a lifestyle shoe and not so much of a basketball shoe, but Nike stepped up its game and introduced the Nike Adapt BB.     

The Nike Adapt BB releases on Sunday and the shoes will cost $350. This release will be very limited and, to purchase, buyers will have to put their name in for a raffle.     

February is packed with heat so stay diligent sneaker heads.
