Tune Out The Noise With The adidas D Lillard 2 Static
Damian Lillard is used to being looked over. It’s something that happened to him in High School, the NBA Draft, Team USA summer camps, and even this year’s All-Star Game. Dame wanted to remind everyone that he’s one of the game’s best young stars after the mid-season break by lighting up the league-best Warriors, blowing out the Western Conference juggernaut while becoming the quickest to record a 50 point game. It only took Dame 31 minutes and 6 seconds to log his career high against one of the NBA’s best defenses and the overall flurry definitely served as a reminder to how dangerous a weapon Lillard is on the court.
The rest of the talk is just noise. That’s the theme of the latest adidas D Lillard 2, nicknamed the “Static” for its black and white interwoven threads complete with bold contrast midsole speckling. ?I don?t need validation ? they?ve seen what I can do out there,? Dame said after the recent Warriors game. ?As a man, I?ve grown to rise above it all and block out the noise. I?ll keep pushing, keep working and soon enough they?ll wake up.? Don’t let the D Lillard 2 go under your radar. The pair is available February 27th for $105 from select retailers.

Other than rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis, it looks like New York Knicks fans don’t have much to look forward to (yet again) this year. But if you happen to be a Knicks fan that’s also into Air Jordans, than here’s one bright spot for you in the latter part of the 2015-16 season: the all-new Air Jordan 5 Low in a colorway for your squad. The blue, orange, and white combination will be the perfect match with your new Kristaps jersey all summer long. We still have no confirmation on a US release date for the Air Jordan 5 Low “Knicks”, but it looks like they’re dropping in Asia on March 1st, so expect them on or around that date in New York and everywhere else in the States.
Barkley, Penny, and Payton Inspired The Design Of The Nike Zoom Kobe Icon
While Michael Jordan may have shaped Kobe Bryant’s game, the credit goes to Charles Barkley, Penny Hardaway, and Gary Payton for shaping the design of this retro-inspired Nike Zoom Kobe Icon. This strange Kobe-centric shoe recently hit stores and immediately sneakerheads pointed out the Glove-like upper shroud and that Gary Payton’s signature shoe history must have played a role in the Kobe Icon. Nike reveals that Charles Barkley and Penny Hardaway were key figures in this play as well; the inner bootie design is a nod to Sir Charles’ past designs, while Penny’s role takes place on the Chevron pattern on the Jacquard upper (not featured here, but part of other Zoom Kobe Icon releases). In addition, one of Barkley’s memorable quotes on Kobe is featured on the heel of the shoes. The Red/Gold pair just hit stores like Sneakersnstuff, so grab another look below.
WWE Kicks: Shane McMahon Returns To Raw In The Air Jordan 1 Chicago
It finally happened; the prodigal son has returned. After a long absence from WWE television that saw him stake out his own place in the world, Shane McMahon made his long-awaited return to the wrestling ring to take what he claims is his rightful place as next in line in the family business. Despite sister Stephanie and brother-in-law Triple H and of course, Vince himself taking the company to new heights (or lows depending on how you view the product these days) in Shane’s time away, the “kid” doesn’t see it that way, citing the drop in TV ratings, stock prices and overall quality of the show as factors for his reemergence on the scene.
Yeah, it’s been too long since I heard “Here Comes The Money”. Thanks to a little behind-the-scenes dealings (aka retconning of past events), Shane was able to justify his sabbatical and had no problem pretty much demanding control of Monday RAW, the WWE’s flagship program. In what might be the smartest piece of writing the show has done in months, Vince turns Shane’s desire and ego into a potential blockbuster Wrestlemania main event, which as many people know is currently devoid of main event talent due to a laundry list of injuries. With no promotion or heads up, we now have a headliner match in Shane against the Undertaker inside Hell In A Cell. If ever there was a rabbit to pull out of the hat, this was it. Considering Shane was in enough shape to rock skinny jeans on Monday night, the plans for this were probably set in motion the moment guys like John Cena and Seth Rollins starting hitting the injured list.
Of course, this is a sneaker blog and we have to talk about Shane’s choice of footwear. To go along with those skinny jeans was a shiny pair of Air Jordan 1 Chicagos. And judging from the video up top, there is no Jumpman to be found so those are last year’s Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Chicago versions, which made me shed tears of sneaker sadness more than a few times last year. As many longtime fans of the WWE will no doubt remember, Shane used to rock OG Jordans all the time including a personal favorite of mine, the Air Jordan 3 True Blue.
Essentially a luxurious iteration of the iconic sneaker, yet maintaining its signature profile intact, the only noticeable difference consists of the letter “R” perforated into the side panels which represents the Belgian fashion designer, as well as replacing the traditional three-stripe branding instead.
Overall comprised of premium leather, White consists as its dominant hue, which also flows towards its rubber sole unit, tongue and laces. Complemented with light green accents on the heel tab and subtle branding on the rear, you can purchase a pair at select adidas accounts now for $455.
The adidas Y-3 QR Run is introduced in two new colorways this season, which essentially utilizes black and white for superb versatility.
Comprised of technical mesh across its upper, the futuristic runner is detailed with a TPU toe cap for added stability, while leather accents line the heel counter and a neoprene inner liner ensures sufficient support and cushioning overall.
Additionally detailed with branding at the leather tab on the tongue as well as the eyelets, the sneakers are topped off with the brand’s renowned boost sole unit in white. You can purchase each pair at select adidas stores now for $410.
Stand Out With This adidas Originals Tubular Defiant
With its most notable release consisting of colorblock variations, the women?s adidas Originals Tubular Defiant is presented in a new finish of Lush Red as well.
Flaunting the eye-catching hue across its entirety overall, the sleek and stylish sneaker is composed of a mixture of neoprene and synthetics across its lacing component, as a midfoot strap provides more security, in addition to reinforcing the design.
Further detailed with tonal snakeskin accents on the heel and a lengthy tongue, the model sits atop a matching sole unit to finish off the composition. Other details include tonal laces and pull tabs with branding.
You can purchase a pair at select adidas accounts now for a price tag of $110.
