Nike Athletes Remember Kobe Bryant With Love And Hate

Kobe Bryant‘s illustrious career is coming to a close, so Nike gathered some of the more iconic athletes on its roster to talk about the Black Mamba’s mentality. From Russell Wilson talking about the fear Kobe instills in his opponents even before setting a foot on the hardwood to Kevin Durant briefly mentioning how much Kobe pissed him off, the video trailer is worth a look. Expect more to come of Nike’s own Kobe farewell tour in the coming days.

Nike Celebrates Kobe Bryant With A Countdown To Mamba Day

Nike celebrates Kobe Bryant’s amazing abilities and propensity to piss people off with a countdown to Mamba Day, also known as April 13, 2016. Before we all say goodbye to Kobe, Nike will be doing a great deal of memorializing over the next several days by having over 200 of their athletes pay homage to the man with black and gold kicks, starting with Rory McIlroy at The Masters. He will be wearing a black, white and gold iD version of the Nike Lunar Control 4 iD.

The short video clip above features various Nike athletes including Kyrie Irving, Paul George and Kevin Durant all talking about Mamba and how he would try to intimidate them through his game and other uh, subtle ways. KD didn’t even bother to hide his real feelings about it, saying Kobe “pissed me off a lot.” And that’s why Mamba is the best…

There will be more to come as Kobe reaches the end, but at least now we know why the Nike Kobe 11 Black Mamba is black and gold and doesn’t just totally Fade To Black like the collection implies.

Author’s Take

Juan Martinez, Editor-In-Chief: Yeah, I want the boxed jersey version but it’s around 900 bucks with taxes and shipping, but also, it sold out after two hours. That’s both amazing and kind of insane that Mamba fans are willing to pay that much for a special edition jersey.

Of course, the cynical part of me feel that there’s a good chance half of them will end up on eBay though….

Official Images Of The Air Jordan 9 Low Bred


Bred is back on the Air Jordan 9 Low, but with a twist. Jordan Brand has managed to introduce snakeskin to the lowtop variety of a shoe that Mike never got around to wearing during his tenure with the Chicago Bulls. The Air Jordan 9 always comes with an asterisk given that it was the first shoe created during Michael Jordan’s brief baseball career. With the then future of Air Jordan models in limbo, Tinker managed to create a unique silhouette complete with one of the more interesting outsoles in the Jordan signature series. This April’s Air Jordan 9 Low “Bred” manages to incorporate the usually gaudy snakeskin trend in a rather subtle way, as the synthetic texture lands on the mudguard in a matching black shade. University Red hints creates that iconic Chicago-like colorway throughout. Expect this pair to hit retailers on April 16th for $170 USD. More detailed photos below.

Nike Brings Back Original Colorways Of The Air Griffey Max 1

Ken Griffey Jr. is enjoying the most significant year of his post-retirement career as the home run aficionado was officially welcomed into Cooperstown’s Baseball Hall Of Fame earlier this year. Nike is timing things right by bringing back original colorways of his first signature shoe, the Air Griffey Max 1, in the “Emerald” version seen here. The sneaker made a huge home-run splash when it returned back in 2009 in a slew of colorways, and given the popularity of this sneaker, don’t expect Nike to stop at just one release. These have a release date of Thursday, April 21st, and will hit Nike retailers like Rock City Kicks.

A Nike SB Dunk Low Inspired By Leftover Pizza, Yum!

image5 image1 image3 image4 image6 image2 image7

You ever have a late night craving for some greasy fast food? You’re thinking of what you can eat and then BAM! You remember that you have some of that leftover pizza that you bought for dinner.

This upcoming colorway of the Nike SB Dunk Low is inspired by that very moment. As you can see, the popular silhouette from Nike SB has been hit with a metallic silver upper that is meant to resemble crinkled up aluminum foil. The insoles have then been hit with a graphic of some delicious pepperoni pizza. Adding to the look are black accents on the tongue, laces, inner liner, outsole and the Swoosh branding. A white midsole has also been added for good measure.

No exact release date is available yet but stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.

Author’s Take

Leftover pizza is one of the best late night meals of all-time. Some how some way the cold pizza taste just as good as the moment you bought it. The pair of SB Dunks is cool I just wish there would have been more pizza inspiration on the upper of the show.

It sort of reminds me of the Stan Smith, just that uses superior materials and it’s a lot more pricier. Not really into this type of shoe, but if you are, let me know what you think about them.
