VIDEO: DJ Skee Unboxes Air Jordan XX8 & Spizike “3M”

Skee TV presents the latest episode of the Skee Locker.  DJ Skee brings viewers into the Skee Lodge and gives them a detailed looked at Jordan’s newest XX8 model in camo blue and the upcoming grey, yellow, and red Spizkie color way.

Always one to push the boundaries in athletic footwear, Jordan drops their newest model with the release of the XX8’s.  In this episode, DJ Skee shows off the new blue camo color way which recently released alongside a yellow and red color pack.  Designed to mimic similar features found in sprinting shoes, the XX8’s are extremely light but still come packed with new technology for added support.  The high performance sneaker’s external stretchy shroud comes with a zipper for added snug and stands out against a vibrant accent.  On the inside, a nice light grey mesh and fuse-like material make up the sneaker.  One of the more important highlights is the translucent rubber out sole which provides top notch grip.  The bottom also comes equipped with a middle carbon fiber plate for less resistance and more natural movement of the foot.  Molded protective carbon fiber can also be found along the heel tabs and gives buyer’s support for quick cuts on the court.

Standing out as one of the more popular Jordan hybrids, the new “3M” Spizike’s are set to drop this March.  The upper portion of the shoe is made up of dark grey or charcoal suede with bright yellow stitching to match the side wings.  Silver 3M material can also be found along the sneakers front and side mudguard, tongue lace cover and below the famous Spike Lee Brooklyn logo along the back heel.  Always a must, this Spizike model comes equipped with a light metallic silver elephant print that blends nicely with the sneaker’s 3M portions.  Red hints are featured on the lace holders and jumpman logo across the tongue, while yellow accents appear along the heel air bubble and inner sock lining.  A simple black tongue and black laces attempt to pull everything together from the front.

VIDEO: Skee Locker: Nike Lebron X “Corks” unboxing & review w/ bonus Air Jordan III “Bright Crimson”

DJ skee reviews and unboxes the elusive new Nike Lebron 10 “Corks” along with a look at the new Jordan III Crimson color way.  Check out the latest episode of the Skee Locker with Skee TV.

Nike Lebron X (10) EXT (QS) Corks really pay attention to detail and offer sneaker heads something different. The upper portion of the shoe is made up of authentic cork material.  Other noteworthy details are the shoe’s vent designs, fly wire laces, chocolate brown leather tongue, and multiple cool laser Nike swoosh’s. The mid sole of the shoe is an off creamy white with clear TPU material just above it. The top of the tongue sports a black “LJ” logo with a gold crown to top it off.  Along the tongue there’s also an ingrained signature from Lebron within the leather.

Following the recent release of the limited Joker’s, Jordan drops the popular III model again in a nice black and bright crimson colorway.  This version of the III’s also comes with a slick canyon purple elephant print which is sure to stand out. The sneaker’s lower white mid sole also provides an interesting contrast against a vibrant crimson accent also found within the inner heel lining.  With quality features on these kicks such as the black leather upper and 3M material along the sneaker’s tongue and toe box expect these to fly of the shelves quickly.
