Nike is launching several sneaker styles this week; the Labron, Kobe and the much anticipated Air Jordan brand's first release of 2013: Jordan Retro 5 in fire red and white. According to several sneaker blogs and Niketown sales associates, this will be the hottest release we'll see in a while. Keep your eyes peeled on Nike Chicago's Twitter feed tomorrow for the exact moment when you can RSVP to buy them. The new Twitter RSVP feature definitely helps cut down on the rowdy--sometimes violent-- nature of shoe releases.
