I?m pretty biased towards runners and it?s no surprise that I like this silhouette. I like this pair much more than the first and this should obviously get lot of attention once again.

NBA Kicks On Fire: LeBron James Wins One For The Land With Nike LeBron Soldier 10 iD

Cleveland is a championship city once more and it is all thanks to LeBron James. After over a decade of promises, decisions, comebacks and setbacks, James broke through and gave “The Land” its first major sports championship in over 50 years, leading the Cavs to an improbable comeback against the Warriors, who only posted the greatest NBA regular season in history and had a 3-1 series advantage over Cleveland. Three times the Cavs could have lost and LeBron would have been dogged to eternity with memes, jokes and unfounded criticism, but now even the most staunch haters of James has to acknowledge what he and the Cavs were able to pull off. Ok, they still won’t give ‘Bron credit because that’s what haters do, but it’s nice to know they’re even bigger fools now than ever before.

As for the Warriors (whom I picked to win the series in either a clean sweep or at the very least five games), this is going to sting for a long time. Stephen Curry was not nearly at the MVP level that he was during the series and that Draymond Green suspension is going to be one of the great NBA “What Ifs” from now on. But if this all leads to a rubber match in 2017, then I’m all in. Hopefully, it won’t take six crappy blowouts to get to a good game though…

As you might expect this was a golden night in kicks, with James, Curry, Kyrie Irving and more rocking championship styled sneakers draped in gold. James and Kyrie lead the way in a black and gold Nike LeBron Soldier 10 (coming soon to NIKEiD) and Nike Kyrie 2, while Curry once again lost in his Under Armour Curry Two MVPs.

This is one of my favorite bball silhouettes aside from Jordans. I?m a fan of the colorway, but it?s too bright for my taste. I?m sure these will garner a lot of attention ? on purpose or not.

The Air Jordan 12 is releasing, or has released in a number of solid colorways this year, and this is another great example. If only those blue-colored panels on the sides would be white instead, I?ll be all over it.

Nike Air Foamposite One Optic Yellow Releases This Weekend


Nike Sportswear is heating up the summer with one of the most vibrant colorways to land on the iconic Nike Air Foamposite One in recent memory. This particular shade of yellow is known as Optic Yellow, and when paired with the black accents throughout, it makes for the perfect killer bees vibe for any Wu-Tang Clan fan out there. This isn’t the first time that NSW has fueled the Foamposite with a splash of electric yellow hints either, as you might remember the “Electrolime” look from 2012. Instead of the icy outsole, a combination of black and yellow hits the bottom for a simple, yet refined aesthetic. Are you a fan of the Optic Yellow Foamposites? This pair is slated to arrive at retailers on Friday, June 24th for $230 USD. Check out more photos below and know that you can grab eBay.

I’m not a fan of the new design. It looks too bulky in opinion but this colorway is pretty solid. With the custom options, fans can create their own unique pair.
