Under Armour Curry 2 ‘Iron Sharpens Iron’ – Saturday, Oct. 24 at 10 am ET

Under Armour’s tagline for the Curry 2 is “Light The Game Up.” That’s easy to do in this ‘Iron Sharpens Iron’ color, with a forge-fire tone on the full-length Charged Foam midsole. This will be UA’s first Curry 2, the highly anticipated follow-up to Curry’s first signature shoe. Its most notable improvement is the knit-like Speedform upper. The name is inspired by Curry’s dedication to his team, and his will to improve it. Men’s $129.99, Boys’ $99.99


Jordan Retro 8 ‘3 Peat’ – Saturday, Oct. 24 at 10 am ET

Part of Jordan’s Holiday lineup, this AJ 8 takes colors from the three teams MJ’s Bulls beat en route to their first 3-peat: the Lakers, Trail Blazers, and Suns. Complete with the trademark strap across the laces, the AJ 8 would be the last shoe Michael wore before his sudden (first) retirement back in ’93. Men’s $189.99, Boys’ $139.99


adidas D Lillard 1 ‘Rip City’ – Available Now

This ‘Rip City’ Lillard 1 definitely has some curb appeal. A white-based upper with grey, scarlet, and black patterned throughout combines for a clean-cut court shoe. It would go extremely well with your Trail Blazers gear if you’re a fan, but it’s are sure to spawn compliments regardless of what you’re wearing. Men’s $104.99, Boys’ $84.99


Nike Field Generals Trainer 2 ‘White Gold’ – Available Now

Following the release of their crazy bright purple colorway less than a week ago, Nike’s latest Field Generals 2 is pure gold. Sleek white is accented by gold loopholes, stars, and backwards trademark swooshes. Simple yet elegant, the full-length zoom sole is practical, while the white/gold is sheer class. Men’s $169.99
