“Yo, when in doubt just Bred it up” – Now, I don’t have confirmation that the afore mentioned quote is actually the official Nike party line, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the sportswear giant has a few ‘break in case of emergency’ colourways stashed away in case they need them. The classic Bred black/red and Royal colourways hark back to the inaugural Michael Jordan signature Jordan 1 basketball shoes and you really don’t get much more classic than that. For Spring 2014 Nike are paying homage to the fact with the Nike Tiempo ’94 Mid Air Jordan pack. This limited edition Quickstrike pack sees the recently-rereleased shoe given arguably its most appealing makeup to date.
Now, there’s been a wee bit of confusion on this pack. We actually took delivery of them not too long ago under the ‘Rebel Pack’ name but we’ve since been informed that the release date on these shoes has been pushed back to Saturday March 1st 2014 and is now flying under the more-obvious banner of the ‘Air Jordan Pack’. For our money these are a killer release. Naturally we’re opting to forgo the football-inspired oversized tongue (these are easily removable) that hearkens back to the Tiempo’s sports roots. Keep an eye on these as they may well be the surprise hit of the season
