Another Jordan Brand classic is coming in a new fashion to start the decade. The colorway is an ode to a cinema favorite: Spike Lee’s He Got Game, which debuted in May 1998, starring Denzel Washington and the famous character Jesus Shuttlesworth portrayed by Jordan Brand athlete Ray Allen. This iteration of the classic colorway flips the script by changing the color blocking. Whether you’re a Jordan Brand fanatic or a fan of Spike Lee films, this colorway and its legacy, is the perfect pair you need to start the new year.

Pharrell Williams is back with another hit, and we’re not talking about his chart-topping music. The multi-platform mogul has been leading the collaboration charge with Adidas for a few years with his creativity and personal flair, coming to life through his sneakers. The silhouette is all about comfort thanks to its Primeknit construction and a sock-like fit. In addition, Adidas throws on its revolutionary 4D material made from light and oxygen to create a lattice-like sole. Available this week in both “Olive” and “Purple,” the Pharrell line is reaching new heights thanks to Adidas’ innovative tech.
