Aaron Gordon Dunked So Hard Last Night That His Shoes Exploded

Aaron Gordon 1 Aaron Gordon 2 Aaron Gordon 3

if you tuned into NBA All Star Weekend this year then you should be very familiar with Aaron Gordon. The high-flyer from the Orlando Magic had EVERYONE talking about his performance from the annual Slam Dunk contest in which he arguably put up the best dunk of all.

Last night Gordon and the Magic faced off against the struggling Philadelphia 76ers and he was wearing the Nike HyperRev 2016. Midway through the 2nd half Gordon’s kicks literally exploded. As you can see in the images above the shoes came apart from the seams on the toe and he was forced to switch them out for another pair.

When you put up amazing dunks like this it shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

The original yellow and white Tinker Hatfield colorway of the Nike Air Max Zero released for the first time last month but was only available exclusively through the Nike SNKRS app.

Now it’s being rumored that it will be making a return on Air Max Day (March 26th) in larger quantities and will not be limited to just the SNKRS app. In addition to the return of the yellow and white colorway there’s also a possibility that a brand new white/purple colorway will be releasing that same day as well.

Take a look at these images of the yellow and white pair and stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for additional information regarding the Air Max Zero.

Author’s Take

I passed on the yellow and white colorway and if the new colorway will be white and purple then I also plan on passing on that pair. Hopefully more colorways are released in the future. Maybe red and white?

Kobe 11 1 Kobe 11 2 Kobe 11 3 Kobe 11 4 Kobe 11 5 Kobe 11 6 Kobe 11 7 Kobe 11 9 Kobe 11 8

March Madness is right around the corner and Nike has created some really special and impressive colorways of the Nike Kobe 11 for some of the top teams in men’s college basketball.

Pictured above are PE colorways of the Nike Kobe 11 for Oregon, Michigan State, Kentucky and Duke that were specifically designed by Nike for each school. Each of the four sneakers feature the school’s team colors on the Flyknit upper in a gradient pattern along with the team logo on the insoles.

Take a look at all four colorways above and let us know which is your favorite. Don’t expect for these to hit retailers though so just enjoy looking at them through a computer/phone screen.


Author’s Take

My favorite pairs are the Michigan State and Duke colorways. Nike did a great job on all four colorways though.

The Air Jordan 5 Low Fire Red Is Fast Approaching

AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 1 AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 2 AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 3 AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 4 AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 5 AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 6 AIR JORDAN 5 LOW 7

 

Is 2016 the year of Air Jordan 5 Low? It sure seems like it. Over the past month or so, I feel like a new Air Jordan 5 Low has released almost every single week. If you’re a fan of the low top version of the Air Jordan 5 and are looking for something with an OG feel to it, we have a feeling that you’re going to like the Air Jordan 5 Low Fire Red.

Just like the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red (Black tongue), this low version utilizes the same colors and color scheme. The upper comes with a white leather construction that ends up taking care of the entire base. Black and red accents appear all over the shoe to complete the theme as they are found on the side panel netting, midsole, tongue, lining and branding. Aside from the height of the shoe, the only features that differentiate the low top from the mid top is the absence of the embroidered “23” on the ankle, and the change of color on the netting. Releasing March 12th for $175, let us know what you think about this colorway on the Air Jordan 5 Low.

Want more info and images of the of the shoe? Be sure to check our Air Jordan 5 Low Fire Red hub page for all the up to the minute details.

Author’s Take

This is one of the better colorways of the Air Jordan 5, but it’s still not clean enough to make me want to spend $175 on them. I’m pretty sure I’m going to pass up on every single Air Jordan 5 Low release this year.

Pure Platinum Yeezy And Wu-Tang Foamposites Are On The Way (Video)

Kanye West and Nike didn’t have the most amicable of divorces, but you wouldn’t think that would be the case because Nike Sportswear has continued to release one Yeezy-inspired sneaker colorway after another since the two parties split up. Next up for Yeezy fans that can’t find it in their hearts to wear adidas is a Pure Platinum rendition of the Nike Air Foamposite Pro. After releasing in both Solar Red and Red October styles, the Pure Platinum Foamposite Pro completes the Nike Air Yeezy 2 trifecta with its clean Posite shell, glow-in-the-dark outsole, Solar Red collar and more.

And if you’re not feeling Yeezy Foams but still love the silhouette, perhaps a pair that honors the Wu-Tang Clan might be right up your alley? If you want to stay on top of things, be sure to bookmark our Nike Air Foamposite Pro Platinum Yeezy launch page and Nike Air Foamposite One Wu-Tang Clan launch page for all the latest information, images, videos and much more.

Rumor: Air Jordan 3 True Blue With Nike Air Branding To Release On Black Friday

It is being reported by Sole Collector that a retailer has confirmed with them that the Air Jordan 3 True Blue will be returning on Black Friday 2016 with the beloved Nike Air branding on the heel.

The Air Jordan 3 True Blue last released in 2011 but has never been retroed with the Nike Air branding on the heel. After Jordan Brand announced in August of 2014 that the Air Jordan 3 silhouette would be put into the vault for an undisclosed period of time and nobody really knew when we would ever see the sneaker again. It looks like we have our answer now.

If things stay the same then we expect the Air Jordan 3 OG 88 True Blue to retail for $220 and for it to release on November 25th.

Note: The picture above is of the 2011 pair and not the 2016 version.

Author’s Take

Fans of the silhouette and colorway will be hyped for this release. I’m a fan of the Air Jordan 3 but would have preferred to see the Black Cement colorway instead.

Check Out Marquettes Air Jordan 30 University Blue PE

AIR JORDAN 30 XXX 1 AIR JORDAN 30 XXX 2 AIR JORDAN 30 XXX 3 AIR JORDAN 30 XXX 4

 

Being that the Air Jordan 30 is the latest Jordan Brand signature sneaker, it’s safe to say that a lot of Jordan Brand schools are going to be rocking the shoe for the remainder of season. One school that managed to get their own PE version of the shoe is Marquette. Let’s take a closer look at Marquette’s Air Jordan 30 University Blue PE.

The shoe comes in a predominantly white upper complimented by the University Blue gradient placed on rear end of the shoe. The toe of the shoe also comes in a blue hue to create some nice overall balance on the upper. Black accents appear on the collar, lining, tongue and laces. A white midsole and icy translucent outsole complete the look. Thoughts on this PE? Let us know in the comments below.


Author’s Take

I wish they would have taken more of a risk, being that the shoe is a PE. If you would not have told me, I would have thought that this was just another colorway of the shoe.

Who says you can’t wear boots in the Spring? Made for the upcoming sunny days, the latest Timberland offering will have you wanting a pair asap! Introducing the Timberland 6-Inch Boot Mono Grey.

The 6-Inch Boot comes in a tonal offering where the entire boot is done up in a grey colorway. The upper comes constructed out of a premium nubuck material, and the ankle padding up top and sole unit down low also follow suit. The laces, eyelets, lining and stitching also come in the same grey hue. If you’re looking for something a bit rugged and stylish for the Spring, you can now pick up the Mono Grey colorway of the Timberland 6-Inch Boot for the retail price of $190. Hot or not? Sound off below.

Author’s Take

I like the tonal look of the boot, but personally, I’m not big on boot footwear. I’m from southern California, what do you expect?

Keep It Premium With The Beauty & Youth x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Collab

Chuck Taylor All Star 1 Chuck Taylor All Star 2 Chuck Taylor All Star 3 Chuck Taylor All Star 4 Chuck Taylor All Star 5

 

When you think of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star, one of the last things that comes to mind is the premium aesthetics of the shoe. I mean, what’s so premium about a canvas constructed shoe, right? Beauty & Youth looks to change that as they put their premium touch on two pairs of the Chuck Taylor All Star.

Done up in a suede construction, the Chuck Taylors will come in either a tonal tan or olive colorway. The collab opts to put a premium suede construction on the upper to give it a luxe look and feel. The suede is greeted by the leather branding hit on the ankle, the metal eyelets, a set of white laces and the traditional white toe cap and sole unit. Set to begin arriving next month, let us know what you think of the Beauty & Youth x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collab.


Author’s Take

Suede looks pretty nice on the shoe, but the lack of comfort on the shoe pushes me away from picking up a pair. If you like the shoe to begin with, I’m sure you’ll love this pair.

Air Jordan 3 True Blue With Nike Air Releasing On Black Friday

Black Friday is always a time to expect brands to come forward with some of the best releases of the year. Sole Collector reports that Jordan Brand won’t disappoint this Black Friday 2016, as a retailer has confirmed with them that the Air Jordan 3 “True Blue”, complete with Nike Air on the heel, will release to the masses. This is exciting news for Jordan fanatics considering Nike Air hasn’t appeared on this particular colorway since the original release in 1988 (as seen in the photo above), because the 2003, 2009, and 2011 Retro versions all had that original logo on the heel-tab. Stay tuned for more updates, but keep the True Blue 3s in mind as we approach Black Friday 2016.

The Spring Will Bring Us This Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Low In University Red

Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit 1 Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit 2 Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit 3

The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit is one of Nike’s most popular silhouettes at the moment ever since it arrived on the scene a few weeks ago. So it makes perfect sense for Nike to give us more colorways of the new lightweight lifestyle shoe.

One of those new colorways that will be arriving at Nike Sportswear retailers later this Spring is this University Red option that you see above. Coming in a low-top cut that is better suited for the warm weather of Spring and Summer, this Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit features a full University Red upper with Flyknit dominating most of the shoe and leather detailing landing on the Swoosh and heel tab. Serving as a touch of contrast are white hits on the tongue branding and midsole/outsole with translucent hits on the outsole.

What are your thoughts on this Spring colorway of the new and improved Air Force 1?

via: asphaltgold


Author’s Take

I think this is going to be one of the most popular colorways of the Spring/Summer because what’s not to like about a red Air Force 1, especially when it’s made of Flyknit?
