Nike Air Raid 2014

You want that old thing back? Nike knows. Not taking things too far back, the Nike retro train makes a stop in the mid-90s to revive the Air Raid silhouette. Equipped with a rugged outsole and double cross-foot straps, the former hoops kick is an ode to ’90s indoor-outdoor performance basketball if there ever was one, as black, flint grey and white work together to handle the sneaker. To get a head start on the 2014 re-emergence of the Nike Air Raid, head over to Titolo now to pre-order them for €126 (~$ 173).

Forbes Reveals How Michael Jordan Made $90 Million in 2013

They call him “Money” for a reason. Aside from being straight cash on the court, Michael Jordan has proved one of the best businessmen in the basketball footwear industry. Just how good? Forbes reports that in 2013 alone he made $ 90 Million off his Jordan Brand partnership with Nike. Here’s a few things to put in perspective:

Forbes reports that last weekend the Air Jordan 10 “Powder Blue” did $ 35 Million in first-day sales alone. Conversely, the adidas D Rose signature line did $ 40 Million in all of 2013.

It’s not just Derrick Rose that the retired legend is outselling. LeBron James, the highest selling signature star in the NBA today, sold $ 300 Million worth of shoes in 2013. Jordan did $ 2.25 Billion in 2013.

Lastly, if anyone’s questioning Kanye West’s knowledge of the industry, it appears Yeezy’s understanding is pretty on-point. In the interview with Angie Martinez where he announced his partnership with adidas, he discussed his issue with Nike regarding his lack of royalties as an artist as opposed to an athlete, citing Michael Jordan’s profitable situation as an example. “Michael Jordan has 5%, that business is $ 2 billion. He makes a $ 100 million dollars a year off of 5% royalties,” said West. Examining the numbers reported by Forbes, he’s not far off.

Manu Ginobili Blows Out Shoe During Game

Is this just a San Antonio Spurs thing?

In last night’s game between the Detroit Pistons and the San Antonio Spurs, guard Manu Ginobili flat out ripped through his shoe during a defensive play in the first half of the game. While guarding Rodney Stuckey at the top of the key, Ginobili planted before his foot instantly burst out of the shoe.

According to San Antonio Spurs Equipment Manager Travis Wade, Ginobili has been wearing this shoe – the Nike Air Max Closer IV - since 2009. Now, Ginobili, a player who is most comfortable wearing the exact same pair of shoes night in and night out, will be forced to switch to a more current performance shoe. “I’ll be switching to the LeBron 11 now,” said Ginobili, while examining his blown out sneaker at his locker. “I have a few NIKEiDs on the way.”

Ginobili, who spent most of last season’s games in the Nike LeBron X, says he’s a big fan of LeBron’s shoes because they are durable, sturdy and “hold up great on the court.”

“Manu is so hard on a pair of shoes,” said Wade. “Hopefully the LeBron 11s hold up for him and last as long he plans on playing.”
