According to Nike legend, in the ’90s his airness would personally challenge Jordan Brand designers to create bold silhouettes and patterns that pushed the boundaries of fashion and sport, and cemented the designs within the cultural lexicon. This legacy lives on in the Jordan Brand x Public School collection, which captures the energy of the big city and colorful personalities of the respective brands.
Celebrating the tailoring and sophisticated ease inherent to Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne’s Public School designs, the seven-piece collection leverages performance materials and strong silhouettes – while taking cues from the Air Jordan XII. Along with referencing the shoe’s design lines, the collaboration reflects its premium materials and elevated craftsmanship.
For years, Public School has been pushing the limits with its play on color, proportion, and styling. We are continuously looking to create modern silhouettes from classic forms,” said Maxwell Osborne, co-founder of Public School. “The Jordan Brand collaboration allowed us to apply this same philosophy and create pieces inspired by Jordan’s iconic designs, but through a Public School lens.”
Two footwear silhouettes complement the apparel collection. A favorite of the Public School founders, the Air Jordan XII design exemplifies the collaboration’s superior execution with a grey nubuck body that pays homage to the trademark PSNY color palette. The Jordan Horizon, a new Air Jordan model, includes a knitted upper mixed with PSNY details.
The Jordan x Public School collection will be available on Jordan.com and select Jordan retail stores on December 12.

For fervent fans, each Air Jordan stirs a distinct memory. One may recall the 63 points scored in the Air Jordan I, another the last-second heroics performed in the Air Jordan IV. These memories are refreshed with Retro releases. Part of the Retro Remaster initiative, they celebrate the legacy of the greatest player in history and introduce it to new generations.
Jordan Brand launched the Retro Remaster initiative in spring of 2015. In response to consumer feedback, it incorporates enhanced color options, cushioning, materials and shapes while retaining each shoe’s original character. The brand continues to evolve the remastering process by reintroducing the Nike Air logo on the heels of storied silhouettes. The decision, which honors original designs like never before, was approved by Michael Jordan and debuts this weekend on the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Maroon.”
The fan-favorite Air Jordan 6 Retro ‘Maroon’ returns for the first time ever on December 5. The premium leather upper, icy outsole and Nike Air heel logo will bring back memories of seeing it for the first time. The Maroon color has been matched to the first models, and the box was designed just like the original from 1991.
Are there any sneakerheads on your holiday gift list? If so you might want to look to Reebok to help with your shopping. Reebok will be coming out with a Camo version of the new ZPump Rise performance basketball sneaker. The Pump technology takes Reebok’s patented custom mold fit back to the court with a true performance basketball sneaker – The ZPump Rise.
The ZPump Rise incorporates a lightweight, fully customizable air filled cage that pumps up and molds to any player’s foot for a locked-in custom fit. By using 3 key lightweight parts, this shoe delivers both high performance features as well as wearable comfort. The fusion compression sleeve offers a seamless and irritation-free upper. The construction of the internal mesh bootie is designed to provide all-over foot support for vertical and lateral movements on the court. But what makes this sneaker stand out from the rest is the fully customizable air-filled-cage that provides the foot with a locked–in custom fit.
The third drop in this three-part series is the ZPump Rise Camo launches this week for a December launch. Adding a fashion forward print to this unique silhouette allows it to stand out from all the others rather than blend in with its surroundings. Grab your pair for $124.99 at Reebok.com or Finish Line.

Crown Royal has done it once again. One of the most popular whisky brands out there wins another prestigious award. Jim Murray recently announced Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye as the 2016 World Whisky of the Year, marking the first time a Canadian Whisky has received the honor. The recognition comes at a time when both the Canadian and Rye whisky categories continue to gain popularity amongst whisky aficionados and consumers alike.
“Crown Royal Northern Harvest pops up out of nowhere and changes the game,” said Murray of the whisky, which he awarded a record-tying 97.5 out of 100 points. “It certainly puts the rye into Canadian Rye. To say this is a masterpiece is barely doing it justice.”
Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye was first released in the U.S. in early 2015. The variant showcases the distinctly Canadian rye whiskey featured in the traditional Crown Royal Deluxe Blend that consumers have grown to love throughout the last 75-plus years. The latest variant to be introduced by Crown Royal, Northern Harvest Rye (90 proof, 45% ABV) is the brand’s first ever blended, 90% rye whisky and embodies a smooth and spicy flavor profile that can be mixed into traditional rye cocktails or enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
“Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye showcases the rye whisky that has been such an integral component of the Crown Royal Deluxe blend since 1939. This is a testament to the unbelievable blending and distilling that’s been taking place in Gimli for over 75 years,” said Yvonne Briese, Vice President of Crown Royal. “We are thrilled that Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye has been named World Whisky of the Year!”
In addition to being named 2016 World Whisky of the Year, Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye received a double gold medal at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye is part of Crown Royal’s vast portfolio of variants for whisky lovers to enjoy, including Crown Royal Regal Apple, the #1 innovation launch across U.S. Spirits over the past 12 month period, according to Nielsen.
