Last year’s race for the Larry O was somewhat lopsided; one Conference was a brutally competitive battle to the Finals, while the other wound up a relative romp of little resistance.
Today was a weird day in the sneaker community. A new Supreme x Nike collab released, but not at their New York shop.
While New York sneakerheads are still fuming over the fact that the Supreme store won't be stocking the highly coveted Air Force 1 collab, the folks in L.A are kicking it with Wale.
LA Gear is still around, and Tyga has collaborated with the retro brand on a runner that looks similar to a Nike Roshe Run. The kicks, which have been dubbed the 'T-Raww 6AMs' are highlighted by a beaming colorway consisting of vibrant orange, blue, and neon.Tyga has collaborated on sneakers in the past with Reebok, but the LA Gear joint is something we didn't see coming.
Vegas currently has the Cleveland Cavaliers as the favorite to win the NBA Championship this season with 3/1 odds. The Spurs are not far off with 4/1 odds, and although no one would be surprised if either team hoists the Larry O'Brien trophy at year's end, the GMs throughout the league are leaning towards San Antonio.
Authors like Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and Terry McMillan have proven that black lit can make for great film. From period pieces and horror movies to dramas and provocative thrillers, the growing popularity of these releases demonstrates that films with predominantly black casts, or black leads, can still appeal to the masses.
Leave your foams, KDs, LeBrons, Asics, Iversons, Kobes etc. at the door. A brand new sneaker boutique is ready to launch in Brooklyn, New York- the birthplace of the GOAT, Michael Jordan. 'Jordan Heads' is an Air Jordan only consignment shop which caters specifically to the sneakerheads who appreciate everything and anything MJ.
Before Kobe signed with Nike, whom he has produced 9 signature sneaker with, he was an Adidas athletes.
Kobe Bryant, now 36 years old, is gearing up to embark on his 19th NBA season and he appears to be more motivated than ever. Having only played in six games last season, and watching the Lakers crumble in his absence, the Black Mamba is prepared to prove to the world that he isn't over the hill just yet. ESPN begs to differ.
Relevant Customs teamed up with Rich & Faded Customs to deliver this special edition Air Yeezy II, designed specifically for Boston Red Sox outfielder, Shan Victorino. The flyin' Hawaiian has a slue of custom Nike and Jordans in his collection, but none are more polarizing than this pair of 'Snow White' Yeezys.
Snoop Dogg, aka Snoop Lion, aka the DoggFather, aka Uncle Snoop is celebrating his 43rd birthday today, October 20th. Snoop has recently been in the headlines for his beef with Iggy Azalea, but today we're drawing on inspiration from something he's most known for- smoking weed.
The 'White/Black' Air Jordan 1 is making a return. Mark your calendars for November 8th, as the kicks are officially slated to release for $140.
Fall is in full swing, and the lady sneakerheads are still bringing out the heat. The 'Black Toe' XIV which recently released made a few appearances in this week's recap, as did a slue of other recent Air Jordan releases.
The 'Barons' colorway, a nod to Michael Jordan's baseball playing days with the Birmingham Barons, most recently adorned the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 9 silhouette. However, Jordan Brand is not finished with the white, black, and grey color scheme. The 'Barons' Air Jordan 13 is scheduled to release on October 25th, with a $170 price tag.
Today, October 17th, is the 42nd birthday of one Marshall Mathers. Eminem probably won't come to mind when you start thinking about the greatest rapper x sneaker influencers, but he needs to be on that list. You've got to give credit where credit is due and the man has his own custom Jordan 2's and 4's, along with a number of different Nike Air Max and Air Force 1 collabs.
Somebody is going to pay dearly for this. Kobe Bryant has been ranked the 40th best player in the NBA, something that the Black Mamba will surely be tweeting about, or addressing in the near future with fire filled eyes.
Victor Cruz is one of the biggest sneakerheads in the NFL, and he is committed to auctioning off part of his enormous collection for a good cause. The salsa-dancing wide receiver of the New York Giants is ready to sell 25 of his own kicks for the first ever 'Halloweenland' event.
Blake Griffin is no longer the only NBA superstar repping for Kia. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, Lebron James has jumped on board with Kia, and will be the ambassador of its new luxury sedan, the K900. Kia is the official vehicle of the NBA, and they were happy to bless King James with the $66,000 whip.
It's October, and as the weather shifts so does your sneaker rotation, or at least it should. It's time to put away those 'White/Infrared' 6s and other summer-inspired colorways in favor of some seasonal flavor. Or dont, I'm not here to tell you what to do.
Joining the 'Columbia' Air Jordan 4 in 2015 will be the 'Oreo,' in what figures to be one of the most anticipated releases of the new year. We've still got a lot of life left in 2014, with a ton of great releases, but it's hard not to feel the hype for the iconic Jordan 4.
For those who are unaware of the circumstances, Nick Young's girlfriend, Iggy Azalea, has been in a bit of a social media war with the OG Snoop Dogg/Lion/whatever. It all started when Snoop posted a hilarious picture depicting Iggy with no makeup on, to which the 'Fancy' artist took great offense. And then Uncle Snoop went all-in posting a series of memes on his instagram account.
The 23rd anniversary of the Air Jordan 6 continues to roll on with yet another creative release courtesy of Jordan Brand. The newest AJVI to reveal itself is this anime-inspired 'Slam Dunk' which draws inspiration from the Japanese cartoon and its main character Hanamichi Sakuragi, who traditionally rocks the 'White/Infrared' Jordan 6.
Atlanta Hawks' forward Michael Scott is known more for his outrageous choice of ink, than for his actual play on the court. Scott did throw down one of the best dunks of the post-season last year, but that isn't enough to overshadow the hoard of smiles faces stamped on his arms.
Rumors are swirling that an enormous restock is going down today at Nike Store, and the lineup is absolutely bonkers. You can check out the full list of kicks that are scheduled to return to retailers here, but know that it includes 70+ sneakers, and favorites such as the 'Champagne' and 'Cigar' 6s, Kobe 9 Elite Low 'Beethoven,' Jordan 5 'Laney' and Air Jordan 11 'Gamma Blue'.
The Air Jordan XIV has come on strong in 2014. New-look colorways such as the 'Thunder' and 'Sport Blue' were accompanied the all-time favorite 'Black Toe,' which recently released. We now have a look at another XIV, built like the 'Ferrari' 14, that we hope Jordan Brand has plans to release.
