Air Jordan 33 Florida PE Sees First Jordan Exclusive for Gators Hoops

The Jumpman college invasion hit the SEC this fall with the introduction of the Florida Gators to their growing NCAA roster.

While the football team has donned Jordan branded jerseys and cleats in recent week, their hoops program sees its formal introduction to the family in the form of the Air Jordan 33 Florida PE.

Following team takes designed for Georgetown, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Marquette, this #Rainsville rendition opts for an icy blue outsole set beneath a royal upper and orange overlays. Green hits and logo branding on the tongue cap off this colorway that will likely only be seen on Gator feet.

Kevin Poon Shares His Sneaker Rotation

Kevin Poon is a serial entrepreneur and co-founder of the renowned streetwear brand, CLOT. Over the years, CLOT has built its reputation on collaboration with major footwear brands, like Nike, teaming up with CLOT over the years.

Kevin and his team have been working hard to instill creativity and inspire perspectives in hopes of bridging the gap between the East and West is core to the brand.

Recently, CLOT released Alienegra Collection in Desert Camo, the collection includes a full range of apparel and collaboration with HERSCHEL SUPPLY CO and Suicoke. Check out the full collection here, and find out what shoes Kevin is wearing below.

Kevin Poon: Shout out to Dr. Woo.  and it’s good to see a tattoo artist to collaborate with Converse. I like them not only because Dr. Woo is a good friend of mine, but also the unique and thoughtful design throughout the sneaker.

Kevin Poon: The Off-White x Nike Air Presto has to be my all-time favorite.  Virgil killed it  with the deconstructed design. More importantly, they are good for daily wear and extremely comfortable.

Kevin Poon: Suicoke’s sandals are cozy! You can’t go wrong with a pair of sandals on you when you travel or in the house. Also, the new CLOT x Suicoke are fresh af

Kevin Poon: Undercover is always one of my all time favourite brands! . They are really comfortable, the Nike React Element 87 model is one the best releases this year so far, plus the unique take by Undercover, it makes the Nike React Element 87 even better.

Kevin Poon: I know these came out like a year ago, but the Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard is the all-time classic. They are basically capable with anything, you can wear them with shorts, pants, even with suits if you really want to. I am glad that they did a Tom Sachs x Nike Mars Yard 2.0, so I can have a fresher pair.

Nike Created Special Edition KD 11 PEs for Kevin Durant’s Return to Seattle

While most align Oklahoma City with the earliest stages of Kevin Durant‘s NBA career, the infancy of his leap to the pros after one year at the University of Texas was spent in Seattle. Before the Supersonics moved to Oklahoma, in 2008, Durant laced up the same glowing hues Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp once did.

Nike pays tribute to Durant’s time in the Emerald City with a budding KD 11 PE. Dubbed the “Seattle Blends” edition, the pair was produced with tonight in mind, as Durant and the Warriors travel to Seattle for a preseason game against the Sacramento Kings.

The shoe was first seen on Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart back in June. Durant will lace up the shoe tonight in the city that drafted him. This player exclusive isn’t expected to release at retail.

John Elliott’s Nike Air Force 1 Low Release is Almost Here

First shown back in November at the second annual ComplexCon in Long Beach, California, John Elliott’s exclusive Air Force 1 Low has been in the news back and forth as reports of a retail release continue to circulate. Much of the speculation, though, is due to the menswear designer himself who persists in teasing images of the shoe far beyond its origins as one part of Nike’s AF100 exhibition.

Just yesterday Elliott’s IG posed more imagery of the dimensionally savvy shoe which is produced in a white-on-white canvas. Reduced lines mark for subtle yet masterful layering — a term often used when defining how to best wear Elliott’s apparel collection.

So when exactly will the John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1 Low release? Only time will tell. But given the nature of the pictures that continue to surface, our thoughts are very soon or not at all. The former is hopeful.

Update 10/5: After long wait, John Elliott’s Nike Air Force 1 Low will finally release on October 18. Pricing details have not been announced.

Air Jordan 18 Returns in OG Wizards Tones Next Weekend

The Air Jordan 18 Black/Royal was an event for anyone old enough to be into sneakers when they released in 2003.

Worn by Michael Jordan during his final season in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, the AJ18 was as smooth and rich as Money himself. Styled in suede — only the black pair — a brush came with each set of shoes to keep them crispy clean after battle.


OG Air Jordan 18 Black/Sport Royal

While the OG White/Royal returned earlier this year in small doses to but to fast sales, we’re finally getting a Black/Blue retro for the first time ever on October 11th.

Adjusted for inflation (eye-roll), the new pair will cost $ 225 as opposed to the $ 175 they first retailed for. Still, dope to have these back. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for updated imagery.

Danny Ainge Wants A Drop Of Terry Rozer’s PUMA ‘Drip’

Taking full advantage of the NBA’s removal of color restrictions on sneakers, Celtics guard Terry Rozier played in the bright “Red Blast” iteration of the PUMA Clyde Court Disrupt in Boston’s 115-112 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

For Rozier, wearing such bright shoes was just all part of his “drip.” Plus Rozier could care less if you don’t like his kicks because he’s going to keep doing what he wants to do.

“I’m trying to have some drip, come out with some drip — mainly for the young kids,” Rozier told reporters on Monday. “Nike and adidas are everywhere but being different is something that I take pride in. Puma’s the new wave. You can get on the train or get lost. It don’t really matter to me. It don’t help me out or nothing. I’m gonna still come through with the drip regardless”

While he may have just been talking confidently, Rozier actually does seem to be inspiring others to get in on the PUMA wave as Celtics general manager Danny Ainge tweeted at the reserve guard asking if he could get just one drop of his drip. Quite amused by Ainge’s request, Rozier hilariously told the general manager that he will hook him up with some PUMA golf gear.

For comedic purposes, let’s hope Rozier actually honors Ainge’s request because seeing the Celtics general manager in some brightly colored PUMA sneakers would simply be amusing.

The NBA Is Going To Ban Kanye’s Reflective Adidas Yeezy Basketball Shoe

Though he’s been teasing his finally finalized “YZY BSKTBL” shoe online over the past month, there may be an unexpected roadblock ahead for Kanye West’s dream of seeing his debut hoop shoe making its way to a NBA game.

According to our own Nick DePaula, the NBA doesn’t plan to approve the Adidas sneaker for in-game use, with the bright 3M reflective heel panel serving as the primary concern.

The league has long had a rule against any “distracting” parts on sneakers, like overly bright patent leathers, chrome pieces that may also chip, or shiny 3M panels like what’s been spotted on a sample of the upcoming Yeezy.

Though DePaula mentions that alternate non-3M versions of Kanye’s basketball model would likely be approved, with the season officially kicking off in a matter of weeks, we’ll have to stay tuned for additional updates on which looks the league will plan to allow.

A Detailed Look At The “Tech Pack” Air Jordan 33

words // Nick DePaula
images // KicksVision

Previewed earlier this month at Jordan Brand’s grand Los Angeles unveil of the latest game shoe, the new Air Jordan 33 will be releasing in a handful of fresh colorways new to the line. While the 31 and 32 before it drafted heavily off of their thirty-year prior predecessors, the team behind the shoe had different plans in store for the 33.

“We really wanted to look beyond, ‘This was the 1, the 2 and the 3,’” reveals designer Tate Kuerbis. “We wanted to look beyond and into the future.”

With a new innovative FastFit laceless lockdown system and a more refined and sharp approach to design, the 33 thankfully takes the brand to a more technical place, earning it a strong reaction since being unveiled. Rather than launch in an expected cement-inspired look hearkening back to the late 1980s, the 33 will be releasing later this fall in what’s been dubbed a “Tech Pack”-informed edition.

The term is short for the detailed pack of technical blueprints for a shoe that designers will compile for their factory counterparts to develop and produce a shoe — hues of red, yellow and blue help to accent a clean black and white contrasting base.

Check out the “Tech Pack” Air Jordan 33 below in detail, and let us know your thoughts on Twitter.

Joey Hamilton Gives Tie Dye Update To Travis Scott Nike Air Force 1

words // Nick DePaula: 

When the Travis Scott x Nike Air Force 1 Low launched earlier this August, the multiple Swoosh options and open canvas canvas upper immediately fueled customizers to try their hand at adding their own updates atop the iconic model.

Portland-based creative Joey Hamilton recently worked up a custom trio of his own, coming up with green, orange and purple-based tie dye takes on the AF1, each framed by the existing sail hued piping lines of the upper.

Check out the updates in detail below, with mismatched Swooshes also accenting the upper. You can keep up with Joey’s work on his @JoeyHamilton and @Prime.Experiments Instagram pages.
