Exclusive // Nick Young’s “Still Swaggy” Adidas Pro Model PE

words & images // Nick DePaula:

At the start of the 2000s, the Adidas Pro Model 2G was perhaps one of the more widespread worn sneakers in the country, as the no frills $ 75 team shoe graced the feet of everyone from middle school hopeful hoopers to suburban high school squads to #1 ranked AAU players and ABCD campers like LeBron James and Lenny Cooke.

The shoe enjoyed a dominant run through the first half of the decade, showing up in simple home white colorways with team color accents, and later exploding in bold full patent leather looks. Then, they simply went away for more than a decade, as the brand tried unsuccessfully to modernize the 2G’s design a few times over, before switching gears and launching a new batch of Team Signature models towards the end of the 2000s.

After breaking out his own player exclusive pair of the Top Ten 2000 earlier in the season, the ever-stylish Nick Young became the perfect player to debut the re-make nearly twenty years after its original run and add the Pro Model 2G to his Adidas sneaker rotation.

In a clean white upper with alternating blue and yellow stripe logo hits, his size 14 pair also features his “Swaggy P” pyramid logo along the tongue, as “STILL SWAGGY” text replaces the commonly found “PRO MODEL” phrasing along the side of the shoe.

“Haven’t seen or hooped in a pair of Pro Models since AAU and high school in 2003-2004,” Young captioned on Instagram after first debuting them. “So many memories.”

Check out Swaggy P’s latest player exclusive from Adidas below, and stay tuned for more detailed looks at his batch of custom pairs for this season.

words & images // Nick DePaula:

Ever since linking up with adidas two seasons ago, the University of Miami has enjoyed an endless flow of the brand’s best products. They were one of the first schools to receive their own Ultra Boost PE, and as the Hurricanes take the floor as a #8 seed tonight in the NCAA Tournament, they’ll be doing so in a new batch of custom Dame 3s.

With graphic inspiration drafting from Doppler radar patterns during a hurricane, The U has both a white-based and green-based PE of Damian Lillard’s third signature sneaker in custom school colors. For Dame, who starred at mid-major Weber State, having his own shoe now featured on the major March Madness platform is a special feeling.

“I never made the NCAA Tournament in college, but now so many college players and teams are wearing my shoes,” says Lillard. “It’s a great feeling – I made it again.”

In addition to the custom sneakers, Miami is also wearing tournament-specific jerseys, a first for adidas. Along the inner neck, you’ll find the school’s longtime slogan, #ItsAllAboutTheU. Check out the Canes’ exclusive adidas Dame 3s below in detail, and stay tuned for more March Madness coverage all tournament.

Exclusive // Stephen Curry’s “Dubfetti” Under Armour Curry 3 Birthday PE

words & images // Nick DePaula:

For the fourth straight season, Under Armour Basketball has created a special edition sneaker for Stephen Curry to honor his March 14th birthday, building on the string of birthday cake themed sneakers that we’ve come to expect on an annual basis.

This year’s Curry 3 celebrates Stephen turning 29 today, with an even more bold and loud take on the sweet mix of sprinkles, spongecake and frosting that’ve helped to inspired his birthday shoe hues and textures along the way. In classic low-key Curry fashion, when asked earlier about his birthday wishes, Stephen said he was simply hoping to play some golf and enjoy a family dinner at Benihana.

Curry is currently taking on the 76ers on NBATV’s “Fan Night” game in his special birthday pair. With a taxi yellow Threadborne mesh upper and electric blue Anafoam along the collar and medial side, the shoe is also accented by a white synthetic overlay that features cake frosting-inspired sprinkles that seep over onto the midsole.

As we’ve seen with several other exclusives made just for Stephen this season, Under Armour gave him both a low-top and mid-cut version, as Curry has taken to wearing Lows during pre-game warmups, before lacing up the Mid for game time. Check out Stephen’s exact size 12.5 pairs of both the Under Armour Curry 3 Mid and Low, in his birthday “Dubfetti” theme edition below.

Subsequently, this shoe coincides with the 20th anniversary of the late Rapper’s death.

Nice Kicks partnered with Puma to give you an exclusive on-foot look at the beautiful collaboration where no two pairs are alike. The material on each Puma Clyde was directly sourced from actual COOGI sweaters. Rounding out the shoe is nubuck throughout the logo sidestripe and gold accents on the lace tips and eyelets.
