What do you get when you cross a karate expert with a pig? A porkchop. What do you get when you cross a fish with an elephant? Swimming trunks. What do you get when you cross an Air Jordan 1 with an Air Jordan 2? An Air Jordan 1 Retro ’86, that’s what. This new rendition of the cross-breed J gets a lush teal make-over, with safari print providing some texture on the panelling with hot volt laces linking u nice with the outsole. We don’t know the drop date for these yet, but you’ll find exclusive first looks like this in SF Issue 30.

Kumqauts aren’t too tasty on their own, you should probably stick ‘em in some sorta jam with stacks of sugar, although they are apparently the ‘only citrus fruits that can be enjoyed whole.’ We do recommend repping them on your shoes though, because the colour has a lot of dazzle to it, as you can see on this Air Jordan 1 Retro ’86. That long name is due to the genesis of the sneak – the OG Air Jordan 1 dropped in 1985 but this version is a bit of a hybrid beast, it takes some cues from the 1986-born Air Jordan 2, like the molded heel panel and wing logo tongue. Most of this little betty is dressed in white, but some of the AJ2 eccentricities are highlighted in kumquat – clever, Jordan Brand, clever. Stay tuned for release info and see more treats like this in Sneaker Freaker Issue 30.

First off it was the ZX 710, now back for a second chunk of the ‘Retro vs. Marble’ pack, retailers Offspring alongside adidas present the ZX 5000 Response iterations. Much like the first series, two renditions have been created, with one harnessing the swirling composition of the marble application, and the second a bodacious 80s-inspired concoction. Don’t ask us which one to buy, as there’s no doubt in our minds we would mary-coppins both, and both available now for strictly limited time via Offspring.

The big game is just around the corner, so Nike are ready to give their turf trainer range one last hurrah before the off-season. They’re ending with a bang too, opting to bring back one of their loudest ’90s efforts, the Air Mission, in three colourways, Included in the release is the OG blue/black/white rendition, as well as staunch black and white and blazing red/black/white numbers, all with nubuck and leather uppers and deep ridged rubber outsoles. Kinetics Tokyo and Wish are supplying this flyness right now if you want a piece, other retailers will score it this Saturday, February 1.

Update. These Js will be available from select Jordan Brand retailers including Overkill tomorrow, January 25.

The Air Jordan 1 is getting a bit of a workout as a complimentary release for other hyped Jordan drops – we’ve seen it get slathered in the Laney 5 combo and a few others, and now the AJ1 in its ’94 form lines up as a partner for the Air Jordan 10 cool grey/infrared. Blacked-out anthracite body, red bottoms and lining and red laces threaded through that Jordan 10 style lace system is the situation here, are you feelin’ it? It’s also hitting retailers on the same day as its brother, January 25, so it’s a pretty decent consolation prize.
