The year is winding down and so is the numbered series of Air Jordans. For 2009, Jordan Brand is taking another step forward into the legacy of the man and the brand beginning with the Air Jordan 2009.
A few photos of the upcoming Air Jordan 2009 have been floating around the web, but none quite this clear. Like every pair of Air Jordans, the Jordan 2009 has a unique design to offer that separates it from the rest of the shoes in the market, but the cut away section in the middle of the foot has been a divider for many so far.
What do you think of what you see? If there is anything consistent from year to year, its that the market tends to warm up to the new design as the release date approaches. Word from SoleBlvd is that these will drop on V-day. Dinner or kicks? (don’t let the lady decide for you) ....PROPS TO NICE KICKS SEE MORE PICS HERE
I like my Lamborghinis like I like my cheese-burgers : fast and flamboyant. And since you are an aficionado of such big and scary things, we’ll let you decide whether its worth 495,000 EUR for a one- of-a-kind Italian supercar designed by celebrity “skulls and swishes” fashion designer Christian Audigier.

Looking for a watch that's about a million times more distinctive than your crappy Casio? Check out the Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Vertical Watch, a timepiece so stunning that you'll forget that it actually tells the time.
It has 1,352 components all working together, driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums. How's it work? You got me. Via magic, I guess. But it sure looks neat, eh? This insane gizmo will set you back a whopping $275,000, plus $400,000 extra if you want it all blinged up with diamonds and platinum.

Here is another preview of a pair of Jordans set to release in 2009, these Air Jordan True Flights may remind you of the Air Jordan 7 (VII) and that is because they are inspired by them. The more noticeable resemblance would be in the overall silhouette of the shoe, and in this particular case the color scheme is the same as the Air Jordan 7 (VI) Orginal- Cardinals (White/ Black/ Cardinal Red). We aren’t sure when these will drop but we do know it should be sometime in 2009. So until more information comes in let us know what you think of them. Via.

SAW THESE @ NICE KICKSAnother version of the Air Jordan PHLY Legends should be hitting Jordan accounts anytime.
The PHLY is a similar to the Blazer, kind of a vintage feel with upgraded technology to keep your feet a little more comfy. This PHLY (no pun intended) colorway was inspired by the white, varsity red and cement Air Jordan 3. As with other versions of the PHLY, the wings logo is applied on the ankle and on the back of the ankle it reads MCMLXXVIII aka 1978, the year Jordan first met Pop Herring, MJ’s high school coach, who inspired these kicks.
You can already scoop these on eBay for about $80, but retail stores should have them on the shelves now as well.
Is Jordan going the right direction with these latest lifestyle releases?

You love light-up cars, right? You want your car to stick-out and keep the streets bright, right? How would you like your car to be uniquely coded to open and activate based on your touch- your fingerprints and more? Ask Enache Florin to hand the plans over. Here is the Peugeot “Touch.”
Designer Enache Florin keeps your car private, maybe:
[The Peugeot Touch] has a light weight body that in some areas, like the doors, are placed touch-sensitive sensors and finger recognition. [These sensors ensure that] only the owner can use the car. Everything is opened [and activated] by touch. The lights compose symbols made out of LED’s, in this way the car has it’s own identity at night. This associates the car with its parent company, identifying it uniquely as the Peugeot Touch.

Similar to the Nike Air Max ‘95 “Manchester”, this sneaker features an all-black upper in 3M design. It also contains silver streaks throughout the shoe; however, the most glaring difference is the gold accents seen overlapping the London cityscape design and inside the visible air unit. London, England’s area code is featured on the inner lining of the sneaker synonymous to the Manchester design.

The size of a palm, the Ad-Tech mobile projector is easy to carry and can throw 60-inch of picture from a distance of 7.87 feet. Placement is flexible thanks to its zoom focus lens that allows 4-inch of image from as little as 14cm of throwing distance. The Lcos based small wonder has a standard 4:3 size VGA resolution, 200:1 of contrast, 15 lumens of brightness and life expectancy of 20,000 hours.
Battery might not be the power source you would imagine from a projector but the mobile version certainly has one. The unit has a built-in battery that would lasts 40 minutes of continuous use. That’s not all the small wonder has to offer; it also comes equipped with a built-in monaural speaker, composite video and analog RGB inputs as well as a mini-audio output.

Coming just 5 days after the Jordan 11/12 CDP, Jordan Brand will be releasing the Jordan Spizike “Cool Grey” on December 31, 2008. This particular Jordan Spizike features a “Cool Grey” nubuck upper.
If you cannot wait that long we have spotted them over at eBay. High price and currency exchange caused these to sell on eBay for $300-$400. If you recall, this sneaker was first released exclusively in Europe; therefore many have been waiting for them to drop in the U.S.
Color: Jordan Spizike
