Jared Jeffries was one of the more unexpected Jordan Brand athletes in the early aughts, and even got to share the court with Michael Jordan. Jeffries’ preferred retro of choice is probably the New Jordans 2015 13, as we’ve seen numerous PEs of that model floating around for quite some time. We’ve yet to see this Wizards “Away” look though, one that’s tooled with a caviar-like leather on the midsole and heel to match the black tumbled leather throughout the silhouette. Throw in a gum outsole that would have matched with the copper trim on the Wizard’s uniforms at the time, and this Air Jordan XIII is definitely a rarity.
One of Jordan Brand’s mashup sneakers, the Son Of Mars Low, will be getting the always popular ‘Black Cement’ treatment this year. The kicks, which resemble some knock-offs that you might find behind the counter at your local bodega, are styled eerily similar to the Jordans 2015 3 which they are inspired by.The black leather upper is contrasted by a white midsole, jumpman on the heel and a metallic silver tongue while the cement print handles the toecap and heel.
According to Gwinnett County Police, the victim scheduled a local meetup with someone he had met on Facebook to trade his “Concord” Air Jordan XIs for another pair of sneakers. The parties came together at the parking lot of an IHOP restaurant, where the teen approached an SUV carrying three males.After swapping sneakers, the victim tried on the other man’s New Jordans sneakers and looked up to see a gun pointed right at him. The man demanded that his sneakers be returned, to which the victim reportedly responded by saying: “No, you’ll have to shoot me,” and walked into the IHOP to call his mother.The men followed the teen inside the restaurant and demanded for the sneakers and money. The teen then took another brave stand against the criminals and threw the sneakers at the men, who proceeded to run out of the door.
