UA Curry

UNDER ARMOUR CURRY 2 ‘ELECTRIC BLUE’ – APRIL 15 AT 10 AM ET

After surpassing the 400 mark for three-pointers in a season a few days ago, Curry has cemented himself into the NBA record books. But his latest shoe isn’t about basketball — it’s about football.

Men’s $129.99, Grade School $99.99, Preschool $89.99, Toddler $49.99.

adidas Lillard

ADIDAS D LILLARD 2 ‘STAY READY’ – APRIL 15 AT 10 AM ET

Quite possibly the biggest surprise this NBA season — though definitely overshadowed — is the success of the Portland Trail Blazers. Many experts predicted they wouldn’t even manage 20 wins, but they surpassed expectations and are now the 5th seed in the West. This gorgeous grey colorway of the Lillard 2 is Damian’s playoff edition shoe, so he’s geared for a deep run. Are you? Men’s $114.99.

Nike Foamposite

Jordan Retro 9

JORDAN RETRO 9 LOW ‘WHITE/BLACK’ – APRIL 16 AT 10 AM ET

adidas Christmas 2015 Pack

ADIDAS CHRISTMAS PACK – fRIDAY, DEC. 18 AT 10 AM ET

 

D rose 6 – Men’s $134.99, Grade school $109.99, preschool $69.99

 

J wall 2 – Men’s $114.99, Grade School $89.99, Preschool $64.99

 

Crazy 8 – Men’s $109.99

 

Release after release, adidas and Nike are slugging it out, and when they battle, we win — especially this time of year. In response to Nike’s announcement of their Fire & Ice pack, adidas will release a Christmas pack of their own, over a week earlier. Pristinely clean and mint green, these shoes have various gold accents mixed with speckled dots for a crystallized effect. The Men’s Crazy 8 and Boys’ J Wall 2 differ from the rest of the pack, as they’re draped in Christmas red. Which is your favorite, and who killed Christmas (in the good, non-Grinchy way) this holiday season – Nike or adidas? Join in on the discussion below.

Under Armour Curry Low

under armour curry drops — friday, dec. 18 at 10 am et

 

ua curry 2 ‘northern lights’ – Men’s $109.99, Grade school boys’ $99.99

 

ua curry 2 ‘Dub Nation’ – Men’s $109.99, Grade school boys’ $99.99

 

ua curry charged foam curry 1 low – Men’s $119.99

 

Stephen Curry’s newest on-court companion, the Curry 2, is dropping in two sort-of new colors. If ‘Dub Nation’ looks familiar, that’s because it was skinned on the Curry 1 back in March; apparently UA and Curry just can’t show enough love to the people of Oakland, so they brought it back! Meanwhile, the new color, ‘Northern Lights’, is almost a mix of the previously released ‘Father To Son’ and ‘Birthday Splash’ colorways. Last but not least, UA has yet to cease distribution of the Curry 1 – despite the Curry 2 drops – and is dropping this new Curry 1 Low. What do you think of these groovy new colors?

Nike Class of 97 2-Pack

nike class of ‘97 2-pack – saturday, dec. 19 at 10 am et

In terms of basketball movies, He Got Game is easily in the Top 5 – maybe even Top 3, behind only Space Jam and Hoosiers. Think about it: We got peak Denzel Washington, we found out Ray Allen could act, and we also got a great portrayal of black culture, basketball culture, and a love story, all rolled into one. Now, Nike is releasing both shoes worn by Jesus Shuttlesworth (Allen) in the film: the Air Foamposite Pro ‘Pearl’ and the Zoom Hawk Flight OG. The best part about this release is that you don’t have to choose which shoe is your favorite — you get both! FYI, if we left your favorite basketball flick off our list, drop us a line. Men’s $384.99.

Jordan Retro 8

jordan retro 8 ‘Chrome’ – saturday, dec. 19 at 10 am et $189.99

Have you ever wanted a Retro 8? Of course you have. Have you ever seen a Retro 8 this crispy? Maybe. This ‘Chrome’ colorway was originally retroed back in 2003, and as part of Jordan’s 30th anniversary, they’re bringing it back in full family sizes. While everyone’s still obsessing about last week’s Retro 11 drop, don’t sleep on these.
