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.
Under Armour UA Curry 2 Veterans Day ‘Floor General’ – Available Now
Under Armour UA ClutchFit Drive 2 ‘Veterans Day’ – Available Now
Under Armour has proudly announced two Veterans Day colorways on both the Curry 2 and ClutchFit Drive 2. Unlike other USA-based colorways, these boast a mostly red upper with military-gold accents. Become an original ‘Floor General’ and represent America on the court. Although Veterans Day is Nov. 11, you can get both of these patriotic kicks right now.
Nike KD 8 ‘N7’ – Saturday, Nov. 7 at 10 am ET
Nike Hyperfr3sh Mid ‘N7’ – Saturday, Nov. 7 at 10 am ET
Part of Nike’s Power of Perseverance collection, the bright-colored Hyperfr3sh and busy-patterned KD 8 paint the picture of the collection well. They were designed by Native American artist Bunky Echo-Hawk of the Pawnee Nation. Proceeds from sales will go towards the N7 Fund, which directly supports aboriginal youth through active participation in sports. You can do good and look good with the these N7 shoes.
adidas D Rose 6 ‘Road’ – Available Now
Built with adidas Boost technology, Rose’s latest signature shoe is returning better than ever — just like Rose himself. In addition to being a top basketball shoe in terms of performance, this ‘Road’ color functions as a solid casual shoe, too. Whether you wear it on or off the court, it’s sure to be a sneakerhead staple.
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.
