Taking center stage for this week’s wallpaper of the week here at Eastbay is an all-new colorway of the Nike Zoom KD IV.

Continuing an already successful season for the Durant signature line of Nike Basketball shoes, this latest colorway of the Zoom KD IV matches the Oklahoma City Thunder’s popular road uniforms. We see a midnight navy base, with white adding some contrast on the Swoosh. Team orange completes the OKC inspiration, handling the tongue branding, midsole plate and detailing throughout.

This all new colorway of the Nike Zoom KD IV is now available for purchase from Eastbay.

With the Summer Olympics set to take place in London next July, one of the biggest storylines will be whether or not Jamaican sprinter Usain “Lightning” Bolt will maintain the dominance he displayed during the 2008 games in Beijing. The “World’s Fastest Man” is the world record and Olympic record holder in the 100 meters, the 200 meters and (along with his teammates) the 4×100 meters relay. He is also the reigning Olympic champion in these three events.

In January, PUMA will introduce a brand new pair of Usain Bolt signature track spikes, the Bolt Faas 007. Described as the fastest spikes on the market, the Bolt Faas 007 will be available in two variations. The primary version, developed for Bolt himself, features premium construction and technology for the serious sprinter. Additionally, there will be a slightly scaled back version of the spikes crafted with high school athletes in mind. Each pair will be available in a Classic Green/White colorway with Bolt and Jamaican flag accents.

This week’s Eastbay Wallpaper gives you a preview look at the upcoming PUMA Bolt Faas 007 spikes. Keep checking the blog for a fully detailed look in the near future.

The overall silhouette of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 has been enhanced with extra durable materials for the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Supreme, an upgraded version of the Nike basketball shoes equipped to meet the demands of a full-length basketball season. The seamless Hyperfuse composite-constructed upper gets a little help from a geometric-patterned synthetic overlay that lies over the toe for additional protection. A lightweight Phylon midsole and durable rubber outsole with traditional herringbone pattern traction provide a sturdy ride below.

This week’s wallpaper gives us a look at the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 in an upcoming Club Purple, which is set to arrive at Eastbay in early December. Metallic Silver branding complements the look above, while a Cool Grey rubber outsole provides the finishing touch below.

Recently introduced to Eastbay, the Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Supreme takes on the general silhouette of the original, while enhancing support and durability with a webbed TPU overlay on the toebox. The overlay locks the foot down and conforms to the foot to minimize any unnecessary movement inside the shoe. Other features on these Nike basketball shoes include Flywire technology throughout the upper, a lightweight Phylon midsole, a 3D reinforced midfoot shank and a solid rubber herringbone traction pattern outsole.

This week’s wallpaper gives you a look at some of the more limited colorways that are set to arrive between now and the end of December. Treasure Blue, Club Purple and Team Orange uppers are contrasted by silver Swoosh and Hyperdunk branding, as well as solid grey midsoles and outsoles.

As noted in our Sole Shots Spotlight, the iconic “Cement” Air Jordan Retro 3 will be making a return to retail this Saturday after last doing so back in 2003. Worn by Michael Jordan when he won his first league MVP during the 1987-1988 season, the “Cement” III may be the most defining sneaker of the entire Jordan line.

Designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield, the Air Jordan III completely flipped the sneaker world upside down. The addition of visible Air was only the start of a massive transformation undertaken by the Jordan line. Arguably the most notable design cue in the history of basketball sneakers, elephant print, was used to accent and reinforce the toe and heel of the shoe. The iconic Jumpman, which many argue could replace the NBA’s current logo, was employed for the first time on the Jordan III. Throw in the beginning of the Mars Blackmon ad campaign featuring director Spike Lee, and you have one of the most important pieces of footwear to ever be created.

Today’s wallpaper keys in on some of those famous Air Jordan III attributes. You’ll also get a detailed look at the packaging and accessories that accompany this year’s release. Be sure to look out for the Air Jordan Retro 3 ‘countdown clock’ on Eastbay this Friday.
