JORDAN WHY NOT ZERO. 1 – FEB. 25 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Jordan Why Not

Take a quick look at the latest colorway of Russell Westbrook’s signature Why Not shoes and you might assume that the inspiration comes from the team he leads in OKC. But this also pays homage to Russ’ past and the hard work that helped him get to where he is today. His father would put him through challenging practice sessions, spending late night after late night on his jump shot. Those long hours have obviously paid off and helped make him into the superstar that he is today. Men’s $125.00. Boys’ $95.00.

NIKE PG 2 – FEB. 24 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Nike PG 2

Westbrook isn’t the only one in Oklahoma City with his own signature shoe — Paul George has his own line with Nike as well. The PG 1s were a big hit and if the early reviews are any indication, Nike struck gold with the PG 2s as well. You can try out the forward’s latest model for yourself with this new colorway that is dropping this Saturday. His new team’s navy and orange colors are featured throughout and also serve as a great way to highlight all of the shoe’s new features. What’s your favorite part – the Flywire cables in the forefoot, the upgraded Zoom unit, the all-new dynamic wings? Let us know in the comments and make sure to pick up your own pair. Men’s $110.00. Boys’ $90.00.

JORDAN AJ XXXII LOW MEN’S ‘WIN LIKE ‘82’ – NOV. 4 AT 10 AM ET

11.1 AJ 32 Low 3

1982 may very well be the year that MJ’s legend was born. At that time, MJ was just a college freshman at North Carolina, but he had already led his team to the national championship game. And it was that game, on March 29 against Georgetown, where his Airness hit the go-ahead bucket with 17 seconds left and the GOAT was introduced to the world. These AJ XXXII’s pay homage to that shot, Jordan’s unrivaled clutch gene, and his Carolina Blue jersey that now hangs in the rafters. Men’s $159.99. Don’t forget to check out the Retro 11 apparel collection that hooks with this shoe.

Less Is More: Nike Flyknit

Less Is More: Nike Flyknit

Nike Flyknit

Comfortable, unique, supportive, and stylish, Nike’s Flyknit upper technology is the total package when it comes to both performance and casual shoes. But, what you might not know is that Flyknit material is also making it easier than ever to treat your feet AND the environment.

Flyknit uppers don’t just look and feel different from traditional shoes — they’re made differently, too. Most shoes are created by sewing together different pieces and materials, with the extra left on the cutting room floor to be discarded. Flyknit shoes, however, are made from one single thread, meaning there’s almost no waste.

Instead of needing to use different materials, like synthetic, mesh, and leather, to provide you with the support and flexibility you need while walking or running, Flyknit has these features woven into the thread, eliminating the need for extras. Areas with a looser weave allow cooling airflow to control sweat, and a tighter weave keeps your foot locked in place and holds the shoe’s shape.

What that means, is when the upper construction is complete, Nike is left with only what is needed — no more, no less.

Besides cutting down on waste, Flyknit uppers are lighter and more comfortable than their traditional counterparts. One piece means no seams, and that means less friction when you’re running, working out, or training. Less bulk also frees up your foot to move naturally for better performance and a more comfortable, one-to-one fit.

To top things off, Flyknit brings a unique style update to classic Nike silhouettes, blending different colors of thread into bold patterns and designs. So, now you can turn heads with your speed, reps, and style.
