Nike Lunar TR1 “Oregon”


Spreading its wings far beyond the gridiron, the University of Oregon continues to fly high when it comes to the Nike Lunar TR1. Coming on the heel of the “Oregon/Kay Yow” color code, the Ducks follow up that drop with this white-based variation. With metallic silver and black soaring throughout the upper, accents, and Lunarlon midsole, the silo’s Flywire cables get sacked with school-inspired touches of green and yellow. Complete with the Duck’s “Win the Day” motto printed about the inside of the tongue, along with the infamous “O” logo on the outside, the Nike Lunar TR1 “Oregon” will be available on Nike.com Wednesday, October 29th.

Investors Plan $2.2 Billion Bid to Buy Reebok from adidas


Is Reebok on the move? According to reports from The Wall Street Journal and an article by The Boston Globe, Hong Kong private-equity investor Jynwel Capitol is looking to make a $ 2.2 Billion bid on the company with help from funds affiliated with the government of Abu Dhabi.

Reebok is currently owned by the adidas Group, who acquired the brand in 2006 for $ 3.8 Billion. While Reebok could be moving from adidas, the Boston Globe report suggests that Reebok would not be moving from their strategy. According to the article, the move would provide Reebok with more financing towards marketing and the opening of new stores, with all of Reebok’s executives expected to be kept on board. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more updates on this developing story.

Kicks On Court: James Johnson Sports Air Jordan 7 Black/Citrus

The acquisition of small forward James Johnson undeniably boosts the Toronto Raptors’ reputation of being one of the most notable teams to watch in regards to sneakers. Johnson, a Wyoming native who has played for four different teams in his six-year NBA career, has been occasionally spotted in retros, such as the “Concord” Air Jordan 11, the “Cool Grey” Air Jordan 11 and much more during his career.

In the Raptors’ recent preseason game against the New York Knicks, Johnson took to the court in a shoe we rarely see in NBA games today, the Air Jordan 7 Black/Citrus. The Atlanta Hawks-esque shoe released in the summer of 2006 and features Citrus-colored contrast stitching throughout the upper. View these kicks, plus more, in today’s edition of Kicks On Court.
