Jordan Retro 10

The red text along the heel pull tabs read ‘I’m Back’ and ‘3.18.95’ to commemorate that historic date. The outsole, midsole, and upper are made up of a clean white color while the ankle and lacing area is black. It’s a luxurious look for a truly legendary moment. Men’s $190.00. Boys’ $140.00.

NIKE KYRIE 4 ‘VENUS FLYTRAP’ – MARCH 16 AT 10 AM ET

Kyrie’s game is deceptive — he lulls defenders into a trance, letting them think they can guard him, then strikes in a millisecond with vicious dribble moves. This colorway of the Kyrie 4 is inspired by the new Nike Kyrie Flytrap shoes and the venus flytrap plant itself. It’s the perfect way to showcase your own deadly moves and lethal speed.  Men’s $120.00.

NIKE PG 2 ‘THE MOMENT’ – MARCH 15 at 10 AM ET

From his first time setting foot in a basketball court, Paul George has been consistently determined to prove everyone who overlooked him wrong. The latest colorway of his signature shoes is based around that passion and urge he has to overcome any obstacle. It’s the perfect shoe to rock while the best teams in college basketball compete to create their own legacies. Men’s $110.00.

NIKE BOYS’ LITTLE POSITE ONE ‘SPACE JAM’ – MARCH 16 AT 10 AM ET

Taking inspiration from the iconic Jordan Retro 11 ‘Space Jam’, these Nike Little Posite One shoes are the perfect way to outfit your little baller with big-time style.

2.21 Jordan Retro 1 'Re2pect'

Derek Jeter may have retired, but his impact in the sports world will be felt for decades to come. His prescence in the sneaker game is staying strong, too, thanks to these special Retro 1 Flyknit kicks. As part of Jordan’s ongoing ‘Re2pect’ campaign, this modern take on the timeless shoe features a navy and cream colorway inspired by his New York team and gold trim along the Wings logo and tongue tag. Jeter’s ‘The Captain’ nickname can be seen through the blue translucent outsole. It’s a look that is truly fit for one of the greatest athletes of all time. Men’s $180.00

GIRLS’ JORDAN RETRO 13 – FEB. 24 AT 10 AM ET

2.21 Girls Jordan Retro 13

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.

A Recap Of LA: What Kicks Did Basketball’s Best Rock?

From insane dunks to incredible shots, this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles lived up to all the hype.

The biggest brands in basketball held exclusive, celebrity-packed events, showcasing the freshest kicks and latest gear. If you love sneakers and basketball, there was no better place to be.

Lucky for you, Detroit guard Langston Galloway and Chris Chase (Nightwing2303 from Weartesters.com) were on the ground in the City of Angels and they got VIP access to all the action. Check it out below:

5 Reasons Crossover Culture Should Be Your Next Hoops Shoe

5 Reasons Crossover Culture Should Be Your Next Hoops Shoe

Crossover Culture is a team of hoopers making new hoops shoes. It’s simple as that. But they’re changing the game. The new brand is built for today’s game, crafting shoes made specifically for today’s athletes.

It’s new. It’s fresh. It’s a game changer. Here are 5 reasons you should hop on the Crossover Culture Movement right now. Learn more about Crossover Culture here.

 

1. Built For Today’s Game

5 Crossover Culture Heel

Crossover Culture recognized that the game has changed. Positions don’t matter anymore. There is no such thing as a traditional point guard or a traditional power forward anymore. In today’s game, everyone needs to handle the rock, shoot jumpers, and get to the rim. Crossover Culture wanted to create shoes that fit this new style of play. It’s not about positions. It’s about being versatile on the court. Crossover Culture shoes focus on fit and feel, giving you comfort and confidence for your game no matter how you play.

 

2. LP Energy System

5 Crossover Culture Cushioning

A new sneaker brand means new sneaker tech. Crossover Culture worked with a team of chemical research partners to develop the LP Energy System, which is optimized for on-court performance, giving you greater impact and stability control all game long. A zero-compression set gives you premium cushioning that won’t break down, giving you the same feel for the life of the shoe. The LP Energy System is designed to help you stay on the court with a comfortable feel and impact protection that propels your game forward.

 

3. High Speed Stability

5 Crossover Culture Traction

Today’s game is faster than ever. It’s all about the fast-paced, high-speed style of play.  A wishbone suspension system offers enhanced dual direction stability without restricting key flex zones, giving you the perfect balance of speed, stability, and comfortability. A multi-level modified herringbone outsole with an added lateral crossover bar offers enhanced traction during quick cuts and fast motions, so you always stay in control. Finally, a molded external midsole heel counter offers lightweight stability to keep you safe on impact after racing to the rim or jumping for a rebound.

 

4. Evolved Performance Fit

5 Crossover Culture 1

The perfect fit gives you extra comfort and confidence on the court. Crossover Culture re-engineered their shoes for a natural forefoot feel, emphasizing straight-out-of-the-box comfort. Advanced materials are designed to move with the foot when needed and support the foot when needed, giving you the perfect balance of a flexible, supportive feel so you can stay focused on your game.

 

5. Three Basketball Silhouettes

5 Crossover Culture Basketball

Crossover Culture has a shoe for everyone. The Crossover Culture Sniper LP has an advanced 3D molded knit upper to support dynamic movements and a supportive over-the-ankle, high-top fit. There’s also a Sniper LP Lo for fans who prefer the fit and feel of a low-top silhouette. The Crossover Culture Fortune LP features an inner sleeve for a snug fit and a second-skin feel, while midfoot/ankle straps lock you in for athletes who are focused on ultimate lockdown.

5 Crossover Culture Casual

There’s also an off-court line and apparel collection, so when you’re finished at the gym, you can lace up casual kicks for basketball-inspired, street-worthy style.
