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.

Nike Winterized Casual Boots & Sneaker Boots – Available Now

If you weren’t prepared for late fall/early winter, Nike’s got you covered. Their first barrage of winterized boots and sneakerboots were released Thursday. 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.

AJ Retro 1 High ‘The Return’ – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10 am ET

The Air Jordan 1 High ‘The Return’ has, well, returned in a first-ever colorway that’s sure to be a staple for sneakerheads. A beautiful assortment of white, black, and soar (not much unlike the highly-prized ‘Fragment’ colorway) creates a clean, street-ready shoe. Summed up in one word? Gorgeous.

AJ Retro 7 High ‘Fuchsia Glow’ – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10 am ET

‘Fuchsia Glow’ will only extend to girls’ grade school sizes, but that hasn’t tempered the hype. The smooth white leather upper pops with bright fuchsia accents, while the mulberry around the midsole gives off a feminine aura. This is definitely a win for the young Jordan fanatic, and we hope to see more successful girls-only shoes in the future.

The latest D Rose shoe’s mantra is “Never break.” This is fitting for one of the most resilient players in the game. Despite suffering several injuries, he keeps coming back better, faster, and stronger. The shoe features a full-length Boost midsole, with a neutral slate colorway. Like Rose himself, this shoe is all business. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the grey camo sole.

Nike KD 8 ‘Easy Euro’ – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 10 am ET

These kicks are money — pun intended. Inspired by KD’s unforgettable nine-day, four-city European tour, this color is borrowed from the fifty euro note. This top performance shoe is now as beautiful as it is powerful. If you’re looking for a fresh pair of on-court low-cuts, start here.

Nike Air Max Effort AMP ‘OSU’ – Available Now

This Air Max is a Buckeye fan’s badge of honor. With the team logo on the front, and “Train like a Buckeye” written inside the tongue, you’ll be as motivated as ever. Regardless of your fandom, the shoe’s mostly-black tone with a red swoosh symbol and fly cables mesh considerably well. A top training shoe designed for the defending champs of college football? A must-cop for Buckeye fans.

Nike Field Generals Trainer 2 ‘Seize The Spotlight’ – Available Now

Built to train quarterbacks, the highly anticipated follow-up to the Field General 1 does not disappoint. More lightweight than its predecessor, the 2 takes a seamless Fuse construction combined with a full-length Zoom unit for incredible speed and superior cushioning. 5 stars on the tongue is spot-on. Don’t just play on the gridiron — take it.
