Under Armour UA Curry 2 ‘Father to Son’ – Available Now

If it was even in question, the MVP has without a doubt gotten better over the offseason. He showed his best stuff of the season (so far) last week when he piled on 53 points at New Orleans. And just like Stephen, the second coming of his shoes have also gotten better. This ‘Father to Son’ colorway exemplifies the way Stephen stunts like his pops.

adidas Wall 2 ‘Away’ – Available Now

Many were skeptical about John Wall’s second signature shoe because of the wild success of the Wall 1s — the old “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” argument. However, skeptics: it pleases us to say that they do not disappoint! Not only does a full-length adiprene+ cushioning system ensure great control and stability on-court, it’s street-smart and stylish. I’m excited to see more colors of the Wall 2 in the future.

Nike CJ3 Flyweave Trainer ‘Bamboo’ – Available Now

For those who aren’t a fan of the Detroit Lions, Megatron’s newest colorway, the CJ3 Flyweave Trainer ‘Bamboo’, has no signs of lions, (or tigers or bears.) Nor does the shoe have even a trace of blue; Shades of forest green dominate the upper, while earthy brown toes and a digi-camo swoosh make this trainer quite possibly the most original colorway we’ve ever seen.

Men’s $159.99

Women who need to defend themselves from large amounts of snow and slush might opt for the Dunk Sky Hi 2, whereas the Nike Air Max 1 is more of a mid-sized boot, suitable for fall and still has fully-functional style. Men who prefer sneakers over a full-fledged boot will be happy with any of Nike’s winterized sneakerboots. Whether you rock them in the fall, or need them in the snow, you’ll look cool in the cold.

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
