Nike Air Jordan II white red unreleased Prototype

Jordan Brand has some beautiful archive pictures online and I love these unreleased
Jordan II prototypes from 1987, that give a bit more insight into the development
What an interesting mix of elements.
I see parts from the Nike Air Ship, Delta Force, Logo embedding like on the windward 
AC or some Cross Trainers, a Jordan 1 bottom Sole (?) plastic eyelets like on the AFII 
or Solo Flight and a very Court Wimbledon AC like midsole…
That collar perforation also resembles an aesthetic used on future Flights.

Nike Air Jordan II Prototype/Development Sample

Christie's NY has laced up this pair of Nike Air Jordan II Prototypes/Development
samples for auction and it made me remember a wonderful exhibition I did 
together with Ceyda, Artoo, Tony Toupet, SneakerTV, Bordellski, the Malawi
Brothers and Marco Colombo in Barcelona, 2008.

Ebay curiosities: Nike Nike Penetrator GT Keith Haring

This beaten Nike Penetrator GT, apparently painted and signed by Keith Haring, was 
up on Ebay not long ago.
The seller was most probably inspired by the latest auctions of vintage sneaker at 
Christie's and Sotherby's for the price. Nevertheless a Post-worthy curiosity.
