Air Jordan 1 “Hyper Royal” Drops in Singapore on April 17
One of the hotly anticipated drops in 2021 is upon us and it’s just around the corner.
The Air Jordan 1 “Hyper Royal” will be released in Singapore on April 17, with a variety of outlets stocking the pair.
The most obvious avenue would be Nike.com, which will be releasing the shoe at 10am. Stocks run out fast though, so be sure to camp the site early.
Limited Edt will also be releasing the hyped pair, with a members only raffle taking place on April 16 from 2pm to 9pm, and an online release for the public at 9am on limitededt.com.
International stores with worldwide shipping are also conducting online ballots, such as END. Clothing and HANON.
All the best with your draws!
Official Images of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Hyper Royal”
Ahead of its expected April 2021 release, official images of the much-anticipated Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Hyper Royal” has surfaced.
While the pair takes on the same construction as with previous Air Jordan 1s, the use and treatment of suede overlays in a faded blue tone makes for an aesthetically fresh take on the silhouette.
Despite the release of official images, a release date has not yet been confirmed, although rumours and reports strongly suggest an April 17 drop.
Without much further ado, take a closer look at the AJ1 “Hyper Royal” below.
Self-Lacing Air Jordan 11s Are Dropping In December 2020
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Air Jordan 11, the Jordan Brand will be launching the Air Jordan 11 “Adapt”, equipped with Nike’s self-tightening technology.
Inspired by the fictional self-lacing Nike Mag from Back To The Future, Nike introduced the technology for real in 2016 and has since been incorporated in a range of products including the Adapt BB and HyperAdapt.
The fit of the Air Jordan 11 “Adapt” can be adjusted on a dedicated app, which can also be used to customise the colour and light scheme of the shoe.
The shoe will also come with a charging pad and plug, making the experience of powering them up as seamless as possible.
While the Jordan 11 may seem like an odd silhouette to take on the Adapt technology, there is some significance to its history. Legendary designer Tinker Hatfield originally intended for the AJ11 to be a laceless shoe, so the launch of the Adapt AJ11 is silhouette coming full circle.
The shoe is expected to launch on December 30, 2020.

Maison Chateau Rouge x Air Jordan 1 Mid “Fearless” Drops in SG on Feb 18
Jordan Brand’s collaboration with Maison Château Rouge on the Air Jordan 1 Mid is making its way to our shores on February 18, after its initial release late last year.
The Parisian lifestyle brand has been making waves in the scene, particularly thanks to its young designer, Youssouf Fofana.
Fofana has been using his platform to showcase the dynamism and richness of a contemporary African district in Paris, and this is especially the case on the Air Jordan 1 piece.
The pair stays true to Air Jordan 1 Mids before it, with intricate debossed patterns across the upper.
The combination of Cinnamon red, baby blue and off-white vanilla keeps the aesthetics busy yet calm.
The shoe will hit Nike.com in Singapore on Feb 18 at 10am.
First Impressions: Running with the Nike Joyride Run Flyknit
Nike may be synonymous with all things sports, spanning across disciplines from football, golf to fencing, but running has been core to its offerings from its very beginning and their latest innovation, the cheerfully named Joyride, is a testament to that commitment.
Joyride isn’t the only proprietary technology in Nike’s arsenal of running soles, but it might just be their most important.
Nike’s Zoom line was crafted for elite runners, the very best of human existence, and was used in the shoe that attempted to break the world record of the fastest marathon.
The React, on the other hand, is made for serious – but recreational – runners in need for a bit of bounce and energy return in their step, while looking good on the streets.
Enter Joyride, the cushioning tech that has the potential to capture the biggest possible running market in the world: non-runners.
Let’s be real, as common as running is as a form of workout, there are more non-runners than runners in existence. And it’s easy to understand why. Running is tough.
While I’ve recently become somewhat of a running enthusiast – I’ve unwisely set a goal to finish a marathon at the end of the year in spite of my lack of fitness – running is a difficult activity to pick up. There are weird pains that show up on your joints, muscles, and everywhere in between. And running can be quite harsh on your feet, especially against solid pavement.
I’ll be honest, the marketing did oversell the comfort levels of the shoe by a little bit, but with that said, on my 5km test runs, I had no complaints. The shoe absorbed the impact of every step and it actually made running feel good.
The Joyride, then, is engineered and marketed towards people who hate running, with the goal of making running easy, as painless as possible and hopefully, a little bit fun. Its most unique quality comes in the form of thousands of multi-coloured beads making up for a solid chunk of foam.
When you first place your feet in them, it’ll feel like unfamiliar territory due to the elevated pods that house the beads under the feet, but something you’ll get used to within a couple of hundred metres in. In fact, after a while, it almost feels like reflexology.
For serious runners, the shoes are also particularly good for recovery runs, particularly when it feels more natural to lie in bed as every part of the body hurts.
Style-wise, the Joyride Run Flyknit looks great, borrowing certain aesthetics from the Presto series, which in my opinion has a very well-balanced design.
The shoe is slightly heavier than the Epic React Flyknit, but the difference is negligible. What’s more, Nike did away with an insole altogether, so your feet feel as close to the beads as possible, which is a good thing.
All in all, they are easily in my top choices for runners, and although I wouldn’t take them on my long runs – I’ve got the Epic React for those – the Nike Joyride Run Flyknit as easily my first pick for any run under 5km.
The Nike Joyride Run Flyknit launches worldwide on August 15, 2019 and will be available in Singapore at Nike Jewel and Paragon.
Nike’s Cortez “Shoe Dog” Pack Drops on July 24 in Singapore
As recounted in his memoirs entitled Shoe Dog, Nike founder Phil Knight spoke about having three designs of the Cortez before he even had a name for the company.
It was the first silhouette that the brand we know now as Nike ever released.
The three design options were known as the Nike, the Falcon and Dimension Six.
For starters, the “Nike” is the closest we have to the final version we have grown familiar with. The longer and slimmer Swoosh was the first iteration of the Swoosh design by Carolyn Davidson, who eventually came up with the Nike logo we know and love.
Another option for Knight was the “Falcon”, which was aimed at representing speed and motion – highly apt for a sports brand that was making running shoes. The design showcased a stitched bird on its lateral side with the words “Falcon” on its top wing.
Interestingly, “Dimension Six” was actually Knight’s preferred choice of name for the brand and the shoe that accompanied its name had a thick blue stripe on its side with a large red circle inside of it.
All three pairs drop on Nike.com on July 24, 2019, for a retail price of SGD159.
Limited Edt is also expected to release the shoes at their LE Vault store (313 Somerset) on the same day.

The Nike x Stranger Things Collection Will Be Released in Singapore This Month
Easily one of the biggest hits produced under the Netflix Originals umbrella, Stranger Things is teaming up with Nike on a range of footwear and apparel, inspired by the 80s – incidentally the setting of the show and arguably Nike’s most formative decade.
While the show’s third season sees its protagonists tackle high school, love and impending danger in the summer of 1985, it was also the same year that the visible Air was taking shape, two years prior to the debut of the Air Max 1 in 1987.
The collection will include the nostalgic silhouettes from Nike’s repertoire of greatest hits such as the Cortez, Blazer and Tailwind.
The collaborative capsule will also include apparel such as t-shirts, caps and hoodies.
The collection will arrive in Singapore via Dover Street Market and Nike.com in two drops.
The first will take place on July 27 featuring footwear and apparel in the Hawkins High’s green and orange colour scheme.
Following that, a second drop on July 1, dubbed the “OG Pack”, will come in classic red, white and blue colours, celebrating the 1985 Independence Day.
Season 3 of Stranger Things will arrive on Netflix on July 4.
