Today marked the release of some limited edition sneakers from Nike and New Balance. For some, that might have made this weekend. For Jordan fans on a tight budget, those releases were just pure distractions. People waiting for the “Obsidian” Air Jordan XII to release again have had to deal with plenty of distractions to keep them busy since 1997. The sneaker has re-released in all sorts of forms – low-top version, Air Jordan Fusion version, and others – but never the original until now. Tomorrow, June 23, Jordan fans will finally have a chance to get their hands on the “Obsidian” Air Jordan XII in Retro form from their local Jordan Brand retailer. Get prepared!

Don’t think we forgot about a certain Air Jordan Retro coming out this weekend! As I told you all long ago on the blog, the “Obsidian” Air Jordan XII Retro is still set for release on this Saturday, June 23. Take a look at that sneaker along with the “Gym Green” Air Foamposite Pro, set for release on Saturday, June 30, from Nike. As always, thanks to the folks at Exit 36 for allowing us to give you all a preview of both sneakers.

As you all can tell, it has been a little bit over a week since Dylan and I last posted on Sole Camp. This was mainly because of a lack of good news to share. However, during the next three weeks, we will be on a trip, and thus, too occupied to update you all on upcoming releases. So without further ado, here is what you should look out for while we are away.
Released: Air Jordan XII Retro “Cool Grey”
Jordan Brand has been pretty consistent in giving the Air Jordan Retro fanbase something to crave week after week. A four-week streak of Jordan Retro drops started in late April with the release of the “Playoff” Air Jordan XII Retro, and it finishes today with yet another XII Retro, the “Cool Grey” version. If you’re a fan, get to your local Jordan Brand retailer and get a pair now.
Reebok Question White/Red
This release could not have come at a more appropriate time. At this time, the Philadelphia 76ers are seeing the most success that they have had since trading one Allen Iverson in the mid-2000s. The last time the Sixers were a playoff-bound team was around the time the sneaker above mesmerized fans of The Answer. Now, the Reebok Question will be dropping in the iconic White/Red colorway with a pearlized leather toe box to the delight of many. Check for the Question at your local Reebok R23 account on Friday, May 25. (Picture via Inside the Sneakerbox)
Nike LeBron 9 P.S. Elite “South Beach”
What better way for Nike to cap off the LeBron 9 P.S. Elite releases than to drop a “South Beach”-like colorway of the sneaker. Even if the Miami Heat can resist the surging Indiana Pacers, do not expect to see this shoe on court. However, you should definitely expect to see long lines and some mania when the “South Beach” LeBron 9 P.S. Elite drops on Saturday, June 2. If you want to avoid the mad rush, get your pair early now on eBay
Air Jordan IV Retro “Military Blue”
It looks like June will be all blue for Jordan Brand. Two major Retro releases are coming in the month, with the “Military Blue” Air Jordan IV Retro dropping first. As an original Air Jordan IV colorway, this sneaker should garner a bit of attention when it is released at Jordan Brand retailers on Saturday, June 9. (Picture via Hoopcity)
Nike Air Yeezy 2 Possible Release?
Ever since news broke of an Air Yeezy sequel, the fine details have been in question. Even with an impending June 2012 release, Nike has not revealed any plans for the silhouette’s drop. However, a concrete date has finally been revealed for the Australian release of the Air Yeezy 2. According to a couple shops out there, both colorways of the Air Yeezy 2 (Black/Solar Red and Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum) will drop on Saturday, June 9 in the Down Under. There is no telling what this means for an American release, but these next three weeks could have some information, so keep on the look out. (Picture via Modern-Notoriety)

Thanks to the staff at Exit 36, we have two upcoming releases to show you. First is one of two Nike Basketball sneakers releasing tomorrow, the yellow, black, and red “Taxi” LeBron 9 P.S. Elite. After that is a Jordan Retro that’s set to hit store shelves next Saturday, May 19, the “Cool Grey” Air Jordan XII Retro. Check out up-close and personal looks at both shoes in the video.

If one were to bring up the question of who holds the crown of NBA Playoff king, Michael Jordan would certainly be one of the contenders. He led the Bulls to six championships in triumphant style. In the playoffs, Jordan was clutch whenever he needed to be. A few of his playoff game-winning shots are still frequently talked about and viewed today. Sixteen years ago to this day, Mike set the record for most point scored in an NBA playoff game with his 63 against the 1986 Boston Celtics, one of the best NBA teams of all-time. Now comes your chance to own one of the few sneakers that MJ broke out in his six championship runs, the “Playoff” Air Jordan XII. If you are a fan of this Retro, do not sleep. Go out to your local Jordan Brand retailer tomorrow morning and secure yourself a pair. (Picture via Exit 36)

Here’s a look at the latest Air Jordan Retro, the “Playoff” Air Jordan XII, courtesy of Exit 36. Head on over to your local Jordan Brand retailer this Saturday, April 21, if you want to scoop up a pair.
February 3, 2012
As the year goes on, more and more release dates are being revealed, with Jordan Brand’s coming out in full force. Today, I have some updates on Air Jordan Retros coming out in June and July. The Air Jordan IV will hold strong in June, as the “Military Blue” Retro is set to drop on Saturday, June 9. Two weeks later, on Saturday, June 23, the never-before-Retro’d “Obsidian” Air Jordan XII will make an appearance at all Jordan Brand retailers nationwide. But the real big news? The “Olympic” Air Jordan VI Retro has a release date! Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 7 as one very hectic day to be a Jordan fan.
January 24, 2012
I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s our now-frequent hiatuses. Maybe it’s that I choose not to give you all basically pointless “New Pictures” posts. No matter what the cause is, Jordan Brand release dates always seem to get lost in the mix. Today, I’m going to update you all on some Air Jordan release dates through May 2012. Shouts to Modern-Notoriety and NiceKicks for the pictures.
Jordan Spizike “Bordeaux”
February will be a busy month for Jordan Brand. In addition to other event-themed sneakers that we have yet to see (All-Star Game? Black History Month?), the brand will release three shoes to the general public in a span of fifteen days. First up will be this grey “Bordeaux”-like Jordan Spizike with multicolor accents all around. Pop into your local Jordan Brand retailer on Saturday, February 4 if you want to get this sneaker.
Air Jordan X Retro “Old Royal”
Dylan actually showed you the Spizike and the “Old Royal” Air Jordan X Retro together. What a coincidence, considering that the white and blue follow-up to the “Chicago” X Retro will be released just a week after the Spizike, on Saturday, February 11.
Air Jordan IV Retro “White Cement”
Oh boy. Anyone not looking forward to the return of the “White Cement” Air Jordan IV, good for you. As for the rest of us, be prepared for the worst. The “White Cement” Air Jordan III did not sell out immediately when it released early last year, but things are looking much different for this “White Cement” sneaker. With the attention of the entire world more on Retro Jordans now than ever (thanks to a certain December 2011 release), people will surely be coming out en masse for the ever-as-beautiful “White Cement” IV Retro when it drops on Saturday, February 18.
Air Jordan IV Retro “White Cement” Special Packaging
Intriguing packaging always helps drive excitement up on releases. The special box that Jordan Brand made for the Air Jordan III last year gave the shoes a little more collector appeal. For the 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan IV, Jordan Brand will bless each of this year’s Air Jordan IV Retros with a cement print-inspired box that also has the classic “Flight” script on the lid. Another thing to note on this box is the new, simplified Jordan Brand sticker. Look for these boxes to fly off shelves when the “White Cement” Air Jordan IV releases on the 18th.
Air Jordan X Retro “Stealth”
Barring any quickstrike releases, this “Stealth” makeup of the Air Jordan X will finish off 2012′s line of X Retros. Check for it at your local Jordan Brand retailer on Saturday, March 24.
Air Jordan XII Retro “Playoff”
Playoff? Playoffs? Who cares!? All we have to know is that the infamous white and black Air Jordan XII that Jordan wore en route to his fifth championship will be released to the public for only the third time. As simple as the shoe is, excitement around the Saturday, April 21 release date should be at a pretty big high. Be ready.
Air Jordan XI Retro Low White/Black-Varsity Red
Patent lows. That is all that needs to be said for craziness to ensue. This white Air Jordan XI Retro Low, laden with black lining and a crisp translucent red outsole, will hit store shelves on Saturday, May 5.
Air Jordan XII Retro “Cool Grey”
Closing out the month of May will be the release of this all-new “Cool Grey” XII colorway. Equipped with hits of white and orange, this Air Jordan XII Retro has enough pop to get some sales when it drops on Saturday, May 19.

We’re still quite far away from the release of the Summer 2012 Air Jordan Retros, but that has not stopped catalog pictures of the shoes from leaking online! Above, you can find new pictures of the Retro releases of the original “Miltary Blue” Air Jordan IV colorway, “Playoff” Air Jordan XII colorway, and “Obsidian” Air Jordan XII colorway. Below those three are two old silhouettes in new colorways. First, there’s the “Cool Grey” Air Jordan XII Retro, laden with Cool Grey nubuck and orange accents. In addition, a new Air Jordan XI Retro Low (NOTE: Not I.E.) will be released for Summer 2012 in a White/Black-Varsity Red colorway. Look for more news on all of these releases in the near future!

Who doesn’t love an early look at some Jordans? kimchee2go on Niketalk got ahold of a few Summer 2012 Air Jordan samples, three of which are highly anticipated Retro releases. In the above pictures, we get confirmation that the “Military Blue” Air Jordan IV Retro, “Playoffs” Air Jordan XII Retro, and “Obsidian” Air Jordan XII Retro will all basically stay true to original form, with the same materials and color schemes. All a Jordan head can do now is wait for 2012 to hit.
