  • The Jordan 11 Story

    Arguably the Air Jordan's are the the most popular style of all-time, take a closer look at the Air Jordan 11 lineage.

    This model was designed by Tinker Hatfield. When the shoe launched, Michael Jordan (retired from basketball by then) was trying in minor baseball leagues. Hatfield designed the sneaker waiting for Jordan to come back and hoping he would play in them.

    The sneakers were only samples in 1995 when Jordan decided to come back in the NBA. Hatfield and Nike discouraged Michael Jordan playing in them, but when produced he wore them. Also noteworthy, Jordan violated league dress code by wearing the shoes, as his teammates wore all black shoe. He was fined $5,000 for not following the Bulls colorway policy. After the fining, Nike made him a pair of the shoes in a black/white/concord colorway for the series against Orlando. Jordan also wore this colorway in the movie Space Jam. A similar black/white/royal blue colorway was released to the public at the end of 2000. The colorway was changed for the public release because the concord purple had looked like royal blue on TV.

    Jordan wore the Air Jordan XI model to help the Chicago Bulls claim the 1995–96 NBA Championship, he also wore the Air Jordan XI white Columbia colorway in the 1996 NBA All-Star Game and was selected MVP of the game. The shoes received more media exposure when Michael Jordan wore the Air Jordan XI model in the 1996 animated movie Space Jam. These shoes were eventually released in 2000 and re-released in 2009 with the nickname Space Jams. The concord purple was changed to royal blue for the released versions of the shoe.

    The Air Jordan XI was originally released from 1995 to 1996. It was retro-ed in 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2006–2016. The Air Jordan XI is the most popular Air Jordan's in the series, and has released almost ritualistically every December since 2008 and sells out within minutes, also it is Tinker Hatfield's favorite.

  • Our community Outreach program

    Hi everybody,

    Many people might know us as City Jeans or CJ Premium in the Bronx and we are proud to say that we have been in this neighborhood for the last 23 years. Many people have seen us, many of you been to our stores and many of you have been loyal to our brand over the years. We want to say thank you to all of you!

    What a lot of you do not know is that we have started a local community outreach program 2016 in the Bronx to support children, teenagers, young adults & families on their path to a brighter future.

    In Cooperation with the Bronx Community College, Madison Boys & Girls Club, YAI and local high schools, we are working towards a better future for all the residence in our neighborhood.

    The Bronx Community College is organizing their annual “Run-the-Bronx” 5K and 10K run & 2K walk and for the first-time CJ Premium will be participating in this amazing event as one of the main sponsors. All the funds collected incl. the starting fee of $29 per runner will go towards students that are NOT able to afford the tuition.

    Well it might see as a lot but it is literally a dollar a day you must put aside for 1 per day for 1 month to support the cause.

    All you should do is to go http://bit.ly/1rafL4a and register for the run/walk.

    We would like to say thank you on behalf of all participating runners, helpers and sponsors and looking forward seeing you on March 6th, 2017 at the Bronx Community College.

    Cheers and have a blessed day.

    Your CJ Premium Team

  • Reggae Star Chronixx Brings Jamaican Spirit to a New Adidas Collection

    It’s impossible to talk fashion with Chronixx—the face of Adidas’s new Spring 2017 Spezial collection—without discussing things much bigger than shirts and shoes. The 24-year-old Jamaican reggae singer, a leader in the island’s earthy roots scene, has a holistic view on personal style, informed in part by his Rastafarian beliefs, and his spirit leads his style, not the other way around. “We are not trying to look good—we are trying to be good,” he tells Vogue one morning after a long night in the studio, leaning all the way back in a big purple chair at his downtown New York hotel.
