Allen Iverson, one of the most electrifying players to ever pick up a basketball, finally had his jersey retired by the Philadelphia 76er's on Saturday night. It was a bittersweet occasion.
The limited release of the "Aunt Pearl" KD6 had people venting on twitter, heavily. The highly sought after, limited KD6 sold out instantly, and sneakerheads shutdown Footlocker.com immediately after the release at 6pm ET last night. Didn't think people would be hyped like that, but you can't under estimate the power of a limited "exclusive" release.
There's no way Jordan Brand doesn't release a 2014 version of the Black/Infrared Air Jordan 6, right? The rumors are swirling that the coveted kicks will be dropping on Black Friday, in November.
He was only sidelined for a few days, but LeBron James made a triumphant return to the hardwood last night that had the world buzzing. LeBron went for 31 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists in the Heat's blowout win over New York, however, it was his mask that won the night.
LeBron James will return to the hardwood tonight against the Knicks. As you know, LeBron has been sidelined after breaking his nose and will be wearing a mask tonight. Chances are it will be your ordinary, run of the mill, clear protective mask. But what if LeBron jazzed it up and went with a tank-like LeBron-themed gas mask?
Sneaker Customizer Gaby Alvarado looked to the movie screen for inspiration on this Air Jordan 12 custom. The "Kill Bill" Air Jordan 12 utilizes the yellow and black color scheme that is synonymous with the Kill Bill trilogy.
Lance Stephenson just posted a picture on instagram of himself chilling in the Pacers locker room with a cool $1million. Did somebody lose a bet? Did Lance rob a bank? Is he buying a fleet of cars for his old neighborhood? The reason for the lump sum of cash is unknown, but Sir Lancelot looks like he's ready to splurge.
We caught a glimpse of a Nike Kobe 9 Elite "Lakers" PE last night, and it wasn't worn by anyone in LA. The Suns' PJ Tucker displayed the dope looking Lakers-themed Nike Kobe 9 Elite last night in Utah.
Adidas Originals has announced it's partnership with Nigo, who was responsible for the rise of BAPE. Though exact details of the partnership are unknown, the collection will launch this year. Given Kanye West's previous collabs with BAPE, we should be looking at some future project between the two with Adidas.
JBF Customs was at it again. The premium sneaker customizer took the "Bred" Air Jordan 1 and remixed it with crocodile and shark skin. The apex custom features genuine black shark, complimented by red sueded crocodile which makes for an incredible look. The sneaker is capped off with lambskin liners.
The announcement that Jordan Brand and Nike SB would be teaming up on an Air Jordan 1 silhouette has the sneaker world anxiously waiting a first look at the basketball/skate shoe.
#1 Syracuse traveled to Cameron Indoor to take on the #5 Duke Blue Devils on Saturday night. The game was as advertised, and came down to the wire.
The Air Jordan Future will release on March 1st, with a $185 price tag. The "Future" Air Jordan is constructed of a woven upper, complete with 3M threads. The sneaker resembles the Air Jordan 11, and the classic 11 outsole sits beneath the unique build. One of the Jordan Future colorways features a red outsole, and the other utilizes a milky outsole beneath the woven upper.
A lucky fan got his Red October Nike Air Yeezy II autographed by Kanye West last night at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York. The stunned fan took to social media with a frenzy of tweets to let everyone know that the man himself just signed his highly exclusive sneakers.
The atrocious Knicks season continued last night when Dirk Nowitzki's buzzer beater banked off the glass and rattled home, sending the Knicks to 15 games under .500.
Breaking the Red October frenzy is this Black/White Nike Air Yeezy sample that has surfaced on EBay, and is even more exclusive than the all red joints. That said, a $50,000 buy it now price is still outlandish.
A Dunk Contest? No. A game agains the Monstars? Yes. Over the weekend, reports surfaced that LeBron James had signed up for a Space Jam sequel. As it turns out, the allegations were merely rumors, and LeBron had not heard anything about it. Maybe he's just biding his time until they officially announce a "Space Jam 2," but LeBron says if he's approached he'd be on board with it.
Sneaker names, and the sneakers themselves, are often a cause of criticism, especially amongst sneaker communities. At times, the criticism and ridicule can turn into a full blown controversy. Sometimes, the controversy surround a sneaker is silly and unwarranted. Other times, it's hard to believe a sneaker ever made it out of the factory in the first place.
At first look, the Nike LeBron 11 Low looks very similar to the Nike LeBron X Low. The low-top 11 will utilize Nike Air Max cushioning, rather than the Lunarlon used in the traditional version. The shoe figures to drop during the Spring although a release date has not been set.
The Jordan 11 Low "Aqua Safari" can be added to the list of summer releases. A specific release date has not been set, but this "Aqua Safari" colorway would be fitting for a summer release alongside the other Air Jordan 11 Lows.
Rappers and ballers, ballers and rappers. They both want to be each other, and often take the opportunity to showcase their talent in each other's field. The Game hoops it up in LA's Drew League, Wale posts videos of himself working on his jumper, and Cam'ron used to be a stud guard playing for Gauchos.
Celebrities, specifically rappers, love to flaunt what they got. Especially when it's things that the common man doesn't have. For sneakerheads, this hits particularly close to home when rappers post a full collection of kicks that haven't even released yet, and you're just praying to win a raffle once they drop in a month.
LeBron James left last night's game in the fourth quarter after Serge Ibaka busted his nose on a drive to the basket. LeBron finished the play with a sick dunk on Ibaka, but was unable to continue.
If the Bred and Black Patent Leather Air Jordan 1 restock wasn't enough. If the Taxi restock wasn't enough. If the complete "Fire Red" restock wasn't enough… this should do the trick.
Big time sneaker customizer Mache combined two of the most recently talked about releases and combined them on a private order. The Nike Air Yeezy II got the Tiffany makeover, with a teal and black build that you'll either love or hate. How do you guys feel about it? Cop or Not?
