Kevin Durant Is Ready To Embrace The Love And Hate

Kevin Durant leaving Oklahoma City was a tough pill for a lot of NBA fans to swallow. The “Slim Reaper” was officially unveiled as part of the Golden State Warriors organization yesterday, with images of the former MVP in yellow and blue threads drawing considerable ire on social media. As Durant eloquently stated in his Player’s Tribune statement, the decision to leave Oklahoma City was incredibly difficult for him to make, but it’s a decision that will only advance his legacy as one of the best players ever. What most don’t care to consider is the business side of basketball that heavily influences a player of his stature to make such a bold move.

Due to its high demand, another variation of the popular adidas NMD in Triple White is set to be offered once again this season.

Following the release of its black/gum counterpart, the Nike LeBron Zoom Soldier 10, which is noted for James? go-to pair for winning the 2016 NBA Finals, is now revealed in a pristine white colorway.

In addition, the logo on its mid-foot strap, Swooshes on the heel and pull tabs inherit reflective properties to further pronounce its aesthetic at night.

Finished off with a versatile gum outsole that also accentuated its entire makeup, you can purchase this pair at select Nike retailers soon for a retail price tag of $150.

Just like I shared before, since LeBron won his first championship with Cleveland by wearing this silhouette, it?ll be a pretty significant model as the years go by. I?m not a fan of the sneaker in general, but this colorway is nice.

Mesh And Suede Combine On This Nike Air Force 1 Low

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 7 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 8 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 9 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 10 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 11 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 12 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 13 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 14 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 15

When we think of the Air Force 1 we usually picture it as having a leather upper, unless you just found out about the Air Force 1 this year and the Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit is all you know and love.

Switching things up a bit from the norm is this pair of Forces that you see above which takes on an Obsidian upper done in a combination of suede and mesh. Contrasting White accents have then been added on the Swoosh branding on the side panels, the branding on the tongue and heel, and the midsole.

Add this pair to your collection by purchasing it at select Nike retailers now for $90.

Author’s Take

The uses of suede and mesh on the upper is a nice look. Hopefully we see more colorways release with these same materials in the near future.

The craze/hype for the adidas NMD continues to grow more and more with each colorway that releases. While the low-top NMD is the one receiving most of the attention, the City Sock version hasn’t been greeted with the same reception.

Next week we’ll be seeing the next adidas NMD City Sock arrive at retailers with this Black colorway that you see above. A Black Primeknit dominates the upper while a white Boost midsole and black and blue EVA inserts complete the look. A Black rubber outsole has also been added for durability.

Look for the adidas NMD City Sock Black to release on July 15, 2016 for $170 at select adidas Originals retailers in the US.

Author’s Take

Not really feeling the City Sock version of the NMD, especially if it’ll cost me $170 plus tax. Pass for me.

In addition to the upcoming Navy colorway of the adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged that we showed you earlier today, we now present to you another offering for Summer 2016.

This time around the premium runner from adidas takes on an Olive upper or what adidas is calling “Tech Earth.” The Primeknit upper is composed of Tech Earth along with Vapour Grey and Auburn. Down below we have the traditional white Boost midsole and a Continental Black rubber outsole.

Along with the Navy pair, this is one of the best colorways that I’ve seen yet. Now if only adidas could give us an Olive Ultra Boost that would release in the US.

The Air Jordan 1 High Vachetta Tan Pack Drops This Weekend

Air Jordan 1 1 Air Jordan 1 2 Air Jordan 1 3 Air Jordan 1 4 Air Jordan 1 5 Air Jordan 1 6

This weekend we won’t be seeing Jordan Brand release a retro that we’ve known about for months or even weeks. Instead they have decided to give us two tonal colorways of the Air Jordan 1.

First seen last week in White and Black, this new Air Jordan 1 High features leather uppers with engineered perforation detailing on the side panels and toe box. Both colorways are then highlighted by the Vachetta Tan leather that lands on the inner liner. Both pairs also come with tonal Swooshes, Jumpman logos on the tongue, outsoles, and White midsoles.

Releasing on July 9th for $160 each, do you plan on picking up either of these Air Jordan 1 Highs?

via: Social Status


Author’s Take

The perforation detailing and the Vachetta Tan hits are a nice touch, but I don’t see anything special that would make me want to buy a pair.

It?s cool to see the Nike Cortez get a modern upgrade, but I?m just not a fan of the silhouette will probably never be. Just not my style.
