Over the weekend the celebrities took in the NBA Playoffs from their courtside seats, which gave us sneakerheads a good look at some new Js.
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.
Kanye Says He's Willing To Give Drake Advice On Designing Sneakers Feb 26, 2015 at 05:19pm 15,768 Views
Drake, if you're reading this... it's not too late. The king of kings himself, lord Kanye West, has offered his confidential expertise regarding sneaker design.While we all know 'Ye is fed up with Nike and he's now satisfied in his role with Adidas, helping Drake achieve greatness in the realm of sneakers (or elsewhere) is something he's into.
The NBA free agency period officially began a few days ago on July 1st. Carmelo Anthony is currently touring the country, with NBA teams and owners tripping over themselves to make their best pitch to the All-Star forward. All three of the Miami Heat stars, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and LeBron James, have opted out of the last year of their contracts, making them all viable free agents as well.
Converse Files Lawsuit Against Ralph Lauren, Forces Them To Destroy 36 Different Sneakers Jan 26, 2015 at 07:09pm 1 View
The iconic canvas and rubber sneakers that have become synonymous with Converse have been duplicated and replicated by many brands, a practice that Converse is not fond of.
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.
The Solefly x Air Jordan 3 'Lotto' continues to make its rounds, this time on the feet of Macklemore via his instagram account. Macklemore showed off the exclusive kicks, which are a collaboration between Jordan Brand and Miami sneaker boutique, Solefly.
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.
Last year, 150,000 pairs of counterfeit sneakers- valued at $1 million- were seized from a warehouse in Olivares Compound in Parenque City, Philippines.
Kanye is no longer with Nike, but that hasn't stopped the brand from releasing the exclusive "Red October" Air Yeezy II and giving them to big time celebrities.
Nicki Minaj has been posting still shots from her 'Anaconda' music video today, and if you can get past her massive backside, you'll notice Drake is sporting a new pair of Jordan 3s- which is why we're here in the first place.
New Yorker's havent been having much luck with limited sneaker releases. Last month, Supreme's flagship store in New York didn't release the highly anticipated Air Force 1 collab, due to fears of a riot.
A bunch of haters were downplaying LeBron James' career-high, and Miami Heat record, 61-point game against the Bobcats. For the most part it was just a bunch of trolls tweeting from their moms basement, who have no idea how hard it actually is to score 61 points in the NBA.
First, Kanye West left Nike to team up with Adidas in a move that caused a stir in the sneaker community. Then, Kevin Durant nearly ditched The Swoosh for Under Armour. Now, three of Nike's top designers have decided to cut ties with the super brand in favor of Adidas.
With barely a week gone by in this 2014-15 NBA season, us hardcourt junkies are just getting our feet wet with what’s sure to be compelling campaign. Even in the season’s early stages, we’re beginning to see trends developing, and several teams bursting out of the gate with impressive starts. Here’s a breakdown of the teams who have risen to the occasion the most thus far:
Brooklyn's own, Lance Stephenson, has joined the swarm of rappers to freestyle over Bobby Shmurda's 'Hot N*gga,' and he makes sure to give his new team owner, Michael Jordan, a shout on the track. No mention of ear-blowing, though he does mention his former team the Indiana Pacers.
Atlanta Hawks controlling owner Bruce Levenson announced that he is selling his share of the team after he admitted to writing an e-mail two years ago that contained racially-insensitive remarks about fans.
Playing hoops with a gold chain around your neck is a douchebag move, but dont tell that to Air Yeezy. Kanye West was recently spotted at an Orange County gym, hooping it up with Kobe Bryant, who was apparently giving 'Ye some tips on his game.
All this talk about Jordan Brand's 2015 lineup, and people are forgetting what's right in front of their face. Before the winter hits, there's still plenty of time to un-deadstock some of your recent pick-ups, including the number of sneaker releases dropping in October.
