Nike's new edition to the hyper- family

Today pictures have surfaced on the internet of Nike's new edition to its line of hyper-. This model is described as the hyperforce. The hyperforce has what appears to be a combination between flywire and the netting that was used in the hyperfuse. The back of the shoe and the swoosh is composed of 3m. Alot of the past Nike Hypers seemed like a different variation of the same thing but this shoe really pops to me. Nike is finally stepping their game up to compete with what Addidas has been doing with basketball. For all of your sneaker news report to The Sneaker Shoe Box.-Johnathan Tran

6/14/2011 Air Jordan X is confirmed to be release in 2012

Today Jordan Brand has confirmed that the OG colorway of the Chicago X's will be re-retroed in 2012. This color way has not been retroed ever. The Chicago 10's were originally released in 1995.
