Playboy Magazine’s Top 23 Air Jordans of All Time

Playboy Magazine doesn’t exactly exude sneaker knowledge but Matt Halfhill of NiceKicks put together its Top 23 Air Jordans Ever list, so there. Chicks (called “Sole Mates”) and kicks, certainly an eye pleasing combination. You have to be a member to see the entire list, but surely images are floating around already. Preview/teaser vid, with a horrible voiceover and some suspect facts, is above.

DOWNLOAD: Tez McClain “Jordans & A Gold Chain”

“The street raised me up giving a fxck, I thought Jordans and a gold chain was living it up.”—Nas “Street Dreams”

On “Jordans & A Gold Chain” ATL rapper on the come up Tez McClain spits a couple of verses about some of the fundamentals needed to stunt. Obviously, my affinitity is for the Air Jordan shouts in rhyme. Give Tez a shot (Don Cannon likes him), he’s got bars. L.T. Moe ((Ludacris, Ghostface, Murs) on the beat, Jordan 3s makes the cipher complete. [Props to the homie Branden J. Peters]

Vintage Nike Sneaker Ads

Classic Kicks just posted some vintage Nike ads that will surely have long time sneaker connoisseurs feeling nostalgic. Also makes a good point about how all current marketing bells and whistles (celeb endorsements, limited edition releases, etc.) tend to overshadow the performance aspect of the shoes. It used to be that style always followed function, which isn’t the case nowadays.

Dope ads for coveted kicks like the Air Max 90, Air Tech Challenge and Air Trainer SC and many more (exactly why plenty have been reissued in recent years) are included. Now Nike needs to stop playing and deliver those Air Jordan IIIs back to stores as promised.
