The legend Barrington Levy just did a collaboration with Supreme. Its an honor within the culture of reggae. Levy was born in Clarendon, Jamaica. He formed a band called the Mighty Multitude, with his cousin, Everton Dacres; the pair released My Black Girl in 1977. Levy established his solo career the next year with A Long Time Since We Don’t Have No Love; though the single was a failure, the fourteen-year-old was a popular performer at Jamaican dancehalls.

The Air Jordan 10 City Pack continues to grow larger and larger with the introduction of the Air Jordan 10 Shanghai . Focused on the theme of “Feng Shui”, or finding harmony in the surrounding environment, the colorway showcases a number of fresh gradients and contrast piping in Fierce Purple and Gamma Blue to truly stand out atop a black tumbled leather upper.

The all-new Air Jordan 10 City Pack would be including a colorway for London, but no images of the shoe were revealed. That all changes now, as we get our first look at the special colorway for London, right before the LA and Chicago versions arrive tomorrow. With what may become considered the best look of the whole pack, the London edition features its full-grain leather upper in two tones of grey, one light and one dark with a crackled treatment, which seem to reference the often foggy weather of the capital city of England. Hits of gold are found on the “LDN” and Jumpman logo embroidery to complete the striking colorway. Enjoy your first look at the shoe compliments of Hypebeast, and stay tuned to Sneaker News for a confirmed release date of the “London” Air Jordan 10. (Rumored release date is June 18th.

The Sacremento Kings were a once proud franchise, but recent dysfunction has the team frequenting the bottom of the NBA standings on a season by season basis. Perhaps a new arena, new uniforms, new coach, and this Air Jordan 12 colorway will cheer up the Sactown hopeful in the near future, though. This preview of the kids pair features a simple black base, vibrant purple accents on the lining and outsole, while premium Metallic Gold accents land on the lace eyelets for a luxurious touch. It looks like this pair will be a grade school exclusive and will release at nationwide retailers on June 4th for $140 USD.
