Hypebeast:

As we all know, Michael Jordan is the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets, and as a result, we get to see some pretty fly Air Jordans inspired by the franchise.

This time around, the iconic Air Jordan 1 features a wonderful combination of purple, teal and white, making for a solid drop. Unfortunately however, this is slated to be a China-only release, which is why the brand has opted for a rather peculiar nickname for this model, considering it’s colorway.

Feng Shui is a “Chinese term that translates to wind-water in English, and is a philosophical system of uniting the mind, body and soul with the surrounding environment,” says Sole Collector.

The Air Jordan 1 “Feng Shui” will hit select Chinese stockists starting October 10.

ASICS GEL-Lyte V Tan/Deep Red

New for Summer 2015 and the latest addition to ASICS’ inline versions of the GEL-Lyte V is a tan and red version of the fan-favorite retro runner. Decked out in rich tan suede, the premium design sees deep red incorporated along the likes of its neoprene bootie, lacing and outsole while a contrasting grey GEL-cushioned midsole caps off the look.

The Tan/Deep Red GEL-Lyte V is now available via ASICS stockists like COMMONN.

UNITED ARROWS & SONS (Japan) x adidas Originals ZX Flux “Indigo”

Japanese style purveyor UNITED ARROWS & SONS join forces with adidas Originals once again for a collaborative take on the ZX Flux running shoe. This time around, the two have reworked the simplistic runner with a traditional Japanese indigo dying-inspired gradient colorway.

The unique hue is based on the natural indigo dyed fabric produced by the Miyazaki-based Aulico workshop, which was then printed along the upper of the sneaker. A metallic blue heel cage and dark blue coloration for the Three Stripes and laces round out the design for the upper.

Priced at ¥14,040 JPY (approximately $118 USD) the UNITED ARROWS & SONS x adidas Originals ZX Flux “Indigo” will be available for purchase at UNITED ARROWS locations in early May.

ASICS GT-II “White”

Joining the “Green Ash” edition of the GT-II this spring is a clean white take on the classic ASICS runner. Ditching the aforementioned green pair’s suede construction in favor of a breathable mesh base and leather overlays, the release comes decked out in white and sports light grey hits to the heel counter and outsole while blue accents are subtly incorporated throughout.

Fans of the predominately white GT-II can find the retro silhouette now at Titolo.

ASICS Gel Saga “All White”

ASICS presents the Gel Saga “All White,” a fresh iteration of the Gel Saga model. The sneaker features a clean, all-white colorway that swathes the leather and mesh upper, midsole and laces. Subtle yellow accents are found on the ASICS logo at the hell as well as on the small detailing found on the outsole.

You can now purchase the ASICS Gel Saga “All White” at Afew for $125 USD.
