  • 2.14 WHY NOT 1
  • 2.14 WHY NOT 1

The new Jordan Why Not Zero. 1 looks unlike any basketball shoe you’ve ever seen before — and that’s kind of the point. If you’re crafting a signature shoe around a player as unique and incomparable as Russell Westbrook, you have to change up the game. Combine a fused-mesh upper with a full-length Zoom Air Unit and a compression-molded Phylon foam piece, and you get just that — a one-of-a-kind sneaker. You can cop Russ’ first signature in two different colorways: the LA-inspired ‘City Of Flight’ and the black/white ‘Two-Way.’ Men’s $125.00. Boys’ $95.00.

ADIDAS HARDEN VOL. 2 – FEB. 16 AT 10 AM ET

  • 2.14 adidas Harden 2
  • 2.14 adidas Harden 1

You can bet that the leading MVP candidate will light it up in LA this weekend. You can also bet he’ll be doing so in his brand new signature shoes: the adidas Harden Vol. 2. And just like the player they’re built around — these kicks are true game-changers. We have to start with the BOOST midsole, which is the thickest ever to appear on an adidas sneaker. It gives you unbelievable bounce, comfort, and cushioning. These shoes also have a customizable lacing system for a locked-down fit. You can pick them up in two fresh colors this Thursday, ‘California Dreamin’ and ‘Ignite.’ Hear about the inspiration behind the shoe from The Beard himself here. Men’s $140.00.

JORDAN AJ XXXII LOW ‘DUNK CONTEST’ – FEB. 14 AT 10 AM ET

2.14 AK XXXII

Of course, one of the biggest events in Los Angeles this weekend will be the dunk contest. But before the latest generation of high flyers takes off, it’s time to pay tribute to one the greatest dunkers ever: MJ. 30 years ago, His Airness took off from the free throw line to win the 1988 Dunk Contest. These AJ XXXIIs are inspired by that moment — when Mike showed the world that he could fly. Details like the ‘3:51’ graphic on the outsole flash back to the exact time that this iconic moment happened. New school meets old school, this shoe is the perfect way to rep more than three decades of Air Jordan greatness. Men’s $160.00. Boys’ $140.00.
