This weekend brings us the release of two more colorways from 2016 Air Jordan 10 City Pack, but it doesn’t appear that people are too excited about either pair. The real news that dominated this week however came from the best player in the NBA right now, Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player for the second year in a row and was the first ever unanimous winner. Under Armour capitalized on this achievement and unveiled the Under Armour Curry Back To Back MVP Pack which featured celebratory colorways of the Curry One and Curry Two. We also looked back on the OG Air Jordan 10 City Pack and decided to have some fun with the all-new Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit since it just landed on NIKEiD.
