This Week's Heat: AJ 17+ Retro 'Copper', AJ 5 Low Girls' 'Wolf Grey', and more

Nike Kyrie 2 ‘Wolf Grey’ – 819583-004 – 4/7/16

Nike designer Leo Chang spearheaded the construction of the Kyrie 2, and analyzed Irving’s aggressive play style to come up with the perfect silhouette to accommodate Kyrie’s hard banking and cutting. Engineered for maximum power output, the Kyrie 2 has exaggerated, curved midsole areas on the outside of the forefoot and inside of the heel. The sneaker debuted in December of 2015 with the Nike Holiday Pack.

The Hyperfuse upper makes this sneaker durable yet breathable. Nike incorporated molded channels in the upper to allow the shoe to flex with the foot. The unique pattern on the outsole is designed for lateral motion, and a circular pattern under the forefoot helps with pivoting. The Kyrie 2 has minimal cushioning in the forefoot for a great feel of the court, and a Zoom Air unit supports the heel on hard landings.

This iteration of the Kyrie 2 is dressed in dark grey around the ankle and Wolf Grey from the midfoot strap to the toe box. The Kyrie branding is picked out in royal blue. Finally, the sneaker is finished out by a Wolf Grey and white midsole and outsole.

The Nike Kyrie 2 'Wolf Grey' drops Thursday, April 7th, in stores and online. Check our Where to Cop for which City Gear locations will be stocking these kicks. They will be available in men's for $125, grade schoolers' for $100, preschoolers' for $80, and toddlers' for $55.

Nike Dunk High ‘University Red’ – 850477-102 – 4/8/16

The Nike Dunk was designed with performance innovation in mind, and its style naturally translated to the court and the street. Dunks were originally sketched by designer Peter Moore who saw the sneaker has a way to display college team colors. Taking parts from the Air Force 1, Air Jordan 1, and Nike Terminator, the Nike Dunk was created to make basketball players better.

In the summer of 1985, Nike gave 12 college teams Nike Dunks in the schools’ colors with the ‘Be True to Your School’ campaign. However the Nike Dunk also became popular in the skating community due to the support of the sneaker, the cushioning, and the traction pattern designed for pivoting.

This new Dunk is a call back to 1985 and the ‘Be True to Your School’ series, and it is dipped in St. John's University. The upper of the ‘University Red’ features a white leather base with University Red overlays. The overlays are complimented by the red laces, liner, pull tabs, and Nike branding.The upper rests on a white midsole and red cup outsole.

The Nike Dunk High 'University Red' drops on Friday, April 8th, in stores and online. Be sure to check Where to Cop for locations carrying these sneakers. They will be in men's for $120.

Air Jordan 5 Low Girls’ ‘Wolf Grey’ – 819172-122 – 4/9/16

Originally released in 1990, inspired by the World War II fighter plane, the Mustang, Tinker Hatfield took a lot of design from these legendary planes, and minimal features from the previous four Air Jordans. Most evident in the “teeth” on the midsole, Hatfield thought Jordan’s playstyle was similar to how a fighter plane strikes.

The Air Jordan 5 is a classic Jordan silhouette, and Nike released an off court colorway as well. Nike released the ‘Grape’ colorway so Jordan fans could stunt on the streets as well. Arguably it was Will Smith who made the AJ 5 ‘Grape’ popular by rocking them on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

The sneaker features mesh netting on the tongue and side panels and a unique lace lock. Tinker Hatfield added 3M reflective material to the tongue to catch camera flashes during epic Jordan moments on court. The AJ 5 is the first in the line to equip a lace lock.

This Girls’ iteration comes in tumbled, white leather, and the namesake Wolf Grey hits the sneaker on the tongue, side panel, and midsole. Black Jordan branding adds contrast to the upper, and the outsole features icy blue details.

The Air Jordan 5 Low Girls' 'Wolf Grey' is dropping on Saturday, April 9th, in stores only. Check out Where to Cop for details. These kicks will be in grade schoolers' for $120, preschoolers' for $75, and toddlers' for $55.

Air Jordan 17 Retro + ‘Copper’ – 832816-122 – 4/9/2016

In 2002, Michael Jordan resigned from the Washington Wizards’ front office as their President of Basketball Operations, and signed a player contract. The GOAT was back, and the Air Jordan 17 welcomed him to the hardwood.

Designer Wilson Smith created the Air Jordan 17 with a removable midfoot strap, Zoom Air units in the sole, lace locks, and a carbon fiber midfoot sheath. Wilson drew inspiration from Jordan’s Aston Martin, Jazz music, and Mike’s love for golf. The original release came with a steel case and an interactive CD. MJ played in the Air Jordan 17 for the Wizards after his second return from retirement.

The Air Jordan 17+ Retro ‘Copper’ is dropping in clean white leather with gleaming copper hitting the lace eyelets, Jordan branding, and the band on the heel. Luxurious faux croc skin overlays grace the upper on the heel and tongue, and the black carbon fiber sheath provides superior support. Small hints of Sport Royal dot the lace lock and outsole. The sneaker features a broken herringbone pattern with a layout inspired by MJ’s golf shoes.

The Air Jordan 17+ Retro ‘Copper’ will be available on Saturday, April 9th, in stores only. So check out Where to Cop for details. It drops in men’s for $250.
