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. This slick electric blue/steel colorway pays homage to where he grew up (North Carolina) and the football team he cheered for (the Panthers). Men’s $129.99, Grade School $99.99, Preschool $89.99, Toddler $49.99.
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.
Let your feet breathe and feel free in the Jordan Ultra.Fly — Jordan brand’s newest team shoe. It’s being debuted right now at the Jordan Brand Classic by the best high school players on the planet, and it comes in four fly colors. Men’s $124.99.
As far as Foamposite Pro retros stack up, this Bred colorway is probably the most hyped, as it’s been 15 years since it last hit the shelves. You can cop it in full family sizes on Saturday. Men’s $159.99.
JORDAN RETRO 9 LOW ‘WHITE/BLACK’ – APRIL 16 AT 10 AM ET
This is as classic as it gets: the Chicago colorway is built with black leather, red accents, and a white rubber outsole. It’s much like the last AJ9 Low that dropped, but the color combination is inverted. Catch this instant classic on Saturday. Men’s $169.99, Grade School $119.99, Preschool $74.99, Toddler $54.99.
JORDAN AJ XXX ‘BLACK CAT’ – APRIL 16 AT 10 AM ET
Dressed in black and anthracite, this AJ XXX is named after after MJ’s nickname from his playing days. The orange earth on the tongue gives it a straight-from-space look which meshes well with the dominantly dark colors. Keep an eye out — you’ll definitely see plenty of these on the court during the playoffs. Men’s $199.99.
