We all have played around with NikeiD to see what crazy colorways we can create of our favorite kicks but rarely do we nail a pair so perfectly that it makes you wonder how it would be received if this was an actual pair. A graphic designer and photographer from the UK named Chris Dodd did just that. He crafted a pair Nike Air Max 1's on NikeiD themed after the classic Banned Jordan 1's. With Jordan brand doing packs with kicks that aren't retro Jordans lately it makes you wonder how the community would react to a Banned/Bred Pack of these 2 kicks? Obviously, this is just hopeful thinking but chances are it would be a smash. Check out the kicks below.
Nike gave us a look at the What the KD 6's back on April 1st and left many of us wondering if this could be some kind of cruel April Fools joke by Nike. Luckily it wasn't and ever since the initial unveiling sneakerheads have been clamoring to get more details on this drop. Well after the shoes popping up on the Release calendar for May and then being removed with no explanation by Nike, we can now confirm that they've been added back to Nike's release calendar and are scheduled for a June 14th release date. As expected these will be a pretty tough cop as all of the "What The" series kicks are. Do you plan on picking up a pair?
Jordan brand is keeping up the pace with their recent OG Jordan 1 releases. The word is that we'll see the OG Black/White Jordan 1's return this year. Hopefully this isn't just a rumor and we see these sooner than later. What do you think of this colorway? Leave a comment below and let us know.

We already knew that 2014 was the year of the Jordan 6 with classic colorways being retroed and new colorways being introduced to us but we finally get a look at the full lineup Jordan brand has planned for this summer. This is the 23rd anniversary of the Jordan 6's initial release and so far this year we've seen the Infrared colorway as well as a new all red "Toro" Infrared 23 colorway. In the coming months we can expect to see at least 4 new colorways, the Champagne and Cigar inspired Championship package, the World Cup "Brazil" inspired 6's, and the "History of Jordan" red leather 6's. We'll also see the Sport Blues retro for the first time ever. Seems like the summer is going to be packed with exciting releases. Which ones do you have at the top of your cop list?
We just released our two newest crewnecks. The first crewneck is inspired by Tupac. The Tupac crewneck featrues an all over American Flag design in black with Tupac's image in the center. We thought it would be cool to give the crewneck a USA theme as ode to Tupac and Snoop's "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" from 1996. The Tupac "America's Most Wanted" crewneck is a perfect match for the Jordan 5 Oreos and Jordan 12 Taxi's! In case you forgot about the song, maybe the video below can refresh your memory. You can find the Tupac "America's Most Wanted" crewneck here. It's extremely limited and will only be available during the holidays!
Well, the Jordan 4 Toro Bravos have been an anticipated release all year and just as quickly as they came, they went. They were an instant sell out online and in stores as predicted. If you did get your hands on a pair (or not) we've got you covered with our latest tee release. This shirt release is special to us for a few reasons. We originally planned to release it June 16th which is the birthday of the late Tupac Shakur. Although we weren't able to release the shirt for the 16th we're still proud to be able to bring it to life now. It matches the Toro Bravos perfectly. It features a custom all-over design that literally covers the entire shirt. The image is from one of Pac's famous rants. He wore the Red Wings Hockey jersey and it instantly became a favorite of many due to Pac's influence on Pop Culture in the 90's. Pac is without a doubt a Hip Hop legend and over 15 years after his passing it's obvious that his legacy will live on. As usual, this shirt is exclusive to Sneakgallery and will be released for a very limited time only! Don't miss them while they're here, click here to purchase yours.
Well today is the day many sneakerheads have been waiting for (unless you're part of #TeamEarly). The Jordan 5 Grapes officially dropped at all Jordan brand retailers and just as fast as they came, they sold out. If you weren't lucky enough to get a pair then we're sorry you missed out. Now, if you're one of the lucky few who did get your hands on a pair we just released our Fresh Prince "Grapes" Tee. This tee is extremely unique and unlike any other we've released. The tee features an all over color fade to match the gradient of the Grape 5's. This tee is custom made and a limited release so if you haven't already, head over to the shop and cop yours here.
Well, April 20th was marked off on many sneakerhead's calendars as the day the Bugs Bunny 8's dropped officially. We heard a lot of talk from the sneaker community that these were sleepers because of the hype for the upcoming Jordan 5 Grapes. That might be partially true but they were still sold out everywhere we went Saturday. If you did pickup the Bugs Bunny 8's yesterday, we've got you covered as usual. We figured that since all of us hate waiting in line for sneakers, why don't we make Bugs Bunny catch a spot in line as well. They sold out before he could get a pair. Check out the collection here.
Well, another Saturday release has come and gone. This release was highly anticipated as most are. The Jordan 13 White/Black/True Red (actual colorway) was originally released in 1997-98, released again as a retro in the CDP pack in 08, and now they've hit stores again. I've noticed that nearly all stores have gone completely to raffle releases across the country. I'm not sure what to think about that. It's kind of unfortunate that now no matter what you do, you have no control over whether you can get the kicks or not. Your name is just pulled out of a hat. Something just doesn't seem right about that.
Well, for those of you who did cop a pair. We released our He Got Game collection today with an Tee and Crewneck to match the kicks. We're only releasing 75 of these as usual in an effort to make sure they remain exclusive to just a few. Check the pics below to see the collection. It's still available here.
Well, today was the day many sneakerheads had marked on their calendar for a month or so now. 25 years ago today MJ took flight from the free throw line and secured his second Dunk Contest victory by defeating Dominique Wilkins. Now you add of all that good history together with a demand for the classic Nike Air on the back of the Jordan 3's and you have a hyped release. Good job Nike! Seriously, I love the Jordan 3's. They're my all time favorite Jordan but the Nike Air isn't that big of a deal to me. Does that mean I'm not a true sneakerhead? Anyway, as usual Nike Store failed to function in any reasonable manner. A few guys here at the office tried our luck at the Nike store Twitter Link Lottery (yes Lottery). We all had different computers, different twitter apps, etc. Needless to say we struck out. We do have a shipment on the way scheduled for delivery around the 24th. If you weren't lucky enough to get through online, we have a limited number of sizes available. They'll be shipped February 24th. It's first come first served and we can't hold any pairs so get yours while they're here.
