Tomorrow, Friday, August 3rd, marks the release of the “Neptune Blue” Gel Saga, Ronnie Fieg’s latest sneaker design (and the recent hot topic on Sole Camp). The shoe will hit shores at Kith’s two retail stores in Manhattan (644 Broadway) and Brooklyn (233 Flatbush Ave), as well as KithNYC.com, at 11 AM. You can buy the sneaker individually for $145, or in a bundle, available in-store only, with a Quintin x Kith 5-panel hat and Kith “Neptune Blue” duffel bag for $225. Anyone who wants to snag a pair of the oceanic sneakers can start waiting it out at either Kith location at 7 PM tonight, or just try online tomorrow morning.

The latest Air Jordan Retro to hit stores will be the White/Varisty Red-Black Air Jordan IV. Even though the shade of red used on it is not the same as on the OG pair (“Fire Red”), it should still be a pretty hot commodity for Jordan fans across the globe. You can get this shoe at your local Jordan Brand retailer this Saturday, August 4th, or $160. If you want a more detailed look at this shoe, stay tuned…

We’re getting closer and closer to the Jordan-filled summer of 2012. Olympics-related sneakers will make up a good deal of what Jordan Brand has in store for the season, but so will this true-to-original Air Jordan IV Retro. Look for the fiery hot “Fire Red” IV Retro to hit Jordan Brand shelves on Saturday, August 4. (Picture via Marqueesole)

Air Jordan IV Retro Update – ”New York Knicks” & “Fire Red”

Some great things have popped up lately for fans of the Air Jordan IV. Here, we have glimpses of a new, exciting colorway of the silhouette and one of its original colorways making a long-deserved return.

Air Jordan IV Retro “New York Knicks”

Last year, Jordan Brand gave New York Knicks fans a plethora of products to purchase. There were the predominately orange and blue “New York Knicks” Spizikes. Carmelo Anthony’s newest signature sneaker, the Melo M8, released in “Home” and “Away” colorups made to match the Knicks’ home and away uniforms. Let us not forget the load of Knicks-colored clothing pieces that Jordan Brand put out in 2011. But for crazy Knicks fans, that might not have cut it. Perhaps some thought that New York was entitled to its own Air Jordan Retro colorway once Anthony was traded to the Knicks. To those people, Jordan Brand has an answer: the “New York Knicks” Air Jordan IV Retro. Dressed in black nubuck and vibrant royal blue and orange accents, this Air Jordan IV looks ready for a wear to a Knicks game. No release information is known on this sneaker just yet, but be sure to stay tuned to get the low-down when it comes out. (Picture via SneakerHotline)

Rejoice, Jordan heads! Finally, you have a good look at the “Fire Red” Air Jordan IV Retro. After twenty-three years, this original colorway of the Air Jordan IV will come back to life in true form. Unfortunately, all that you can do for now is stare at this picture. But don’t fret. Soon enough, further release information will be made available.

Air Jordan Retro 2012 Teasers – “Fire Red” IV, “Olympic” VI, “Raptors” VII

Over the past few days, pictures of some upcoming Air Jordan Retros have leaked. Through these leaks, some observations can be made about the new Retro versions of these colorways. The “Fire Red” Air Jordan IV Retro is looking true to original form, thanks to the lack of a Mars Blackmon logo. However, the other two might bring some disappointment to Jordan purists’ hearts. For one, the “Raptors” Air Jordan VII Retro looks a lot more like the lighter DMP version that released three years ago than the darker, streamlined 2002 version. Also, the “Olympic” Air Jordan VI Retro has a changed-up midsole, with more Midnight Navy than white. Thankfully for the sneakerhead community at large, these attribute changes are not too drastic, but rather, just minor things to set apart past Retros from today’s Retros.

More Air Jordan IV Retro Colorways Slated for 2012

Looks like the Air Jordan XII is not alone in ruling 2012. One Air Jordan IV Retro release was already confirmed for 2012 (the “White Cement” colorway). But now, three more will join the “White Cements”. The best part of it all? The other three Air Jordan IV Retros slated for 2012 are also original colorways of Jordan’s fourth signature. The “Bred” colorway of the Air Jordan IV, last seen in the Air Jordan IV/Air Jordan XIX Countdown Package from 2008, will release once again. The “Military Blue” Air Jordan IV will see a Retro release after a six year hiatus. Finally, the “Fire Red” colorway of the Air Jordan IV will see the light of day once again. In 2006, a similarly color-blocked Air Jordan IV Retro released with Varsity Red (as opposed to Fire Red) accents and a Mars Blackmon logo. Hopefully, the 2012 “Fire Red” Air Jordan IV Retro release will be truer to OG form. No source has given an indication of when the shoes will release, but stay tuned to Sole Camp if you want the low-down on the 2012 Air Jordan IV Retros’ release information when it drops.
